    Hello! We just booked a trip to Disneyland for my sons 10th birthday, he doesn't know we are going-we want to make this extra special! What are some fun ideas for places to celebrate? Do you have any ideas for fun ways to tell him we are going? Thank U

    Hi, Courtney!

    I'm so glad you’re celebrating your son's birthday at the Disneyland Resort! There's no better place to spend a special occasion than "The Happiest Place on Earth," and there are many ways to make it magical. Order a free personalized Disney Parks vacation planning DVD online to perhaps wrap up with a few Disney or travel-related items as a fun way to tell him about your vacation!

    The Disneyland Resort Hotels can help you celebrate by arranging for special Disney gifts and surprises to be delivered directly to your room. There are many gift baskets to choose from that can be customized to a special occasion, favorite Disney character or theme. You can also arrange for your room to be decorated to look like Mickey and the gang stopped by to welcome your family and kick off the birthday celebration with some extra magic! Call the Dream Makers at (714) 781-GIFT (4438) to plan a special surprise. 

    My favorite table-service dining location for celebrating special occasions is Blue Bayou at Disneyland Park. The restaurant is located right inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, so you can request a table near the water and wave to Guests floating by in boats headed to the pirate-filled waters below! Don’t forget to mention his birthday when making your reservation. For an extra-special treat, order a custom bakery cake to enjoy after your meal by calling (714) 781-DINE (3463).

    Be sure to pick up a complimentary birthday button for your son as you check in to your hotel or at City Hall in Disneyland Park. It can be customized with his name so he’ll receive personalized birthday wishes from Cast Members all day. 

    Happy birthday to your little prince! Please write back with more questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted vacation.

    Wishing you magic,
