    We are bringing my daughter to Disney in December as a gift for her birthday. Her actual birthday is the end of November, however I was wondering if she will still be able to enjoy any of the "benefits" I have seen mentioned about celebrating at

    Hi Tabitha!

    What an exciting Birthday Gift your daughter is receiving!
    It absolutely doesn't matter that your daughter's actual birthday isn't during your visit - what matters is that you've chosen to have her celebrate her special day at Walt Disney World!

    Be sure to include a notation on your Disney Dining Reservations that you'll be celebrating your daughter's birthday during your visit. She will be treated to special, birthday treats and desserts at most locations, if your server is made aware of the celebration. Be sure to mention the celebration to your hostess as you check in for dining at each of your reservations. To add a celebration note to your reservations, simply call (407) WDW-DINE and a Cast Member will be happy to assist you.

    Additionally, be sure to request a Birthday Button upon arrival at Walt Disney World. If you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you'll be able to request this right at check-in. If your accommodations are outside the resort, simply visit any Guest Relations location in the parks to request your button. Your daughter will delight in being recognized as a Birthday Girl everywhere she goes during your visit!

    For more tips on special ways you can celebrate during your visit, check out this great link on the Walt Disney World website. From special customized products to birthday cakes and special deliveries ... there are so many special ways to Customize Your Celebration.

    If you'd like dining recommendations or have additional questions, please feel free to write me back Tabitha! I'd love to hear from you again.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time celebrating at Walt Disney World!
