    My birthday is coming up soon and I’m turning 22 this year in July 1 Canada Day on Friday I want to make my best birthday party ever please?

    Hiya, Karlee! Welcome to planDisney!

    As my pal Gus Gus says to Cinderelly, "Hap-hap-happy birthday!" Karlee, any trip to Walt Disney World Resort is sure to be special, but a BIRTHDAY trip is going to be extra magical! In my opinion, there's no better place to celebrate than at The Most Magical Place on Earth. There are so many ways to add a little extra pixie dust to your birthday trip and I'd love to give you a few ideas to get you started. Let me just grab my magic wand...

    First of all, it's so exciting to hear that your birthday also falls on Canada Day! My first idea is to make a Theme Park Reservation using the Disney Park Pass system for EPCOT on this day. Of course, you could stop at the Canada Pavilion to celebrate this momentous occasion together! On July 1, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will still be in full bloom and you'll be able to explore all of the outdoor kitchens and discover the character topiaries. Make sure to find your favorite (mine's Kermit)!

    You could also make your birthday extra special by making an advance dining reservation at one of the magical restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort. My favorite restaurants are Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park, Sanaa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, and Le Cellier Steakhouse in EPCOT. You could also book one of the Enchanting Extras available for some added pixie dust! You may want your very own Capture Your Moment photo session in one of the parks, reserve one of the Magic Kingdom 50th Fireworks Dessert Parties, or encounter some incredible wildlife on a Wild Africa Trek! With so many choices available, you're sure to find an option that's practically perfect in every way.

    Be sure to wear a complimentary "I'm Celebrating" button for your birthday trip! These can be picked up at Guest Relations in any of the parks or at the front desk of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. This is a great way to let other people know you're celebrating and there's nothing like hearing a warm "happy birthday!" from both Guests and Cast Members alike!

    Of course, you could also reach out to the amazing team at Disney Meetings & Events if you'd like to plan a truly one-of-a-kind birthday celebration! They will be able to help you with everything from picking a special venue to creating a perfect cake. All you need to do is submit a request to get started!

    Happiest of birthdays to you, Karlee!
