    My BFF and I are talking a birthday trip to Disney. We will stay at Grand Floridian. Her birthday happens to be the same as Mickey Mouse. I know the hotel will do wake-up calls, but can she get a Mickey Mouse birthday call on her birthday?

    Why hiya Kimberly, it's great to have you here at planDisney!

    There's something special about heading down to the Most Magical Place on Earth for your birthday, especially when you get to stay with your best pal at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa! Now I have to tell you from living and hanging out alongside Mickey Mouse himself for some time as a Cast Member, getting a personalized phone call from the big cheese hasn't always been possible though I remember back when Disney Junior had a Birthday Call offering for a limited time.

    Sadly at the current time there isn't a way for guests to receive a birthday call from Mickey Mouse to where they're staying (outside of being fortunate enough to reach someone like the great Bret Iwan or Chris Diamantopoulos to record a message). A way that some guests have gotten creative with this is paying Mickey Mouse a visit in the theme parks to request a special autograph or record a little selfie video of themselves saying "Happy Birthday" next to him! 

    Since Mickey celebrates his birthday on the 18th of November each year, it sounds like you'll be down here in time for all of the holiday festivities as the theme parks and Disney Resort Hotels are decked out in seasonal sparkle! Why not surprise her with a special birthday meal at a Character Dining location where Mickey's bound to be around like at Chef Mickey's, Hollywood & VineTusker House Restaurant or Garden Grill Restaurant? Over at EPCOT the recently-opened Communicore Hall at World Celebration is the newest place to meet Mickey and some other beloved pals, so this could be a great way for you to head over and snap that extra-special birthday photo!

    Since offerings at Disney destination are always subject to change without prior notice, who knows whether special Character greetings will ever be available once more - but I'll keep an ear out in case our pal Mickey starts making phone calls again!

    Here's hoping you and your BFF will still have the very best Birthday trip ever!
