    I am bringing my granddaughter to WDW for her first time in celebration of her 5th birthday. Does WDW offer anything special for her special day?

    Hi Nancy!

    Congratulations on visiting Walt Disney World for your granddaughter's 5th birthday!

    You guys will be making memories that last a lifetime. How wonderful that you will get to spend this special day together! We take my daughter every year on her birthday, so I have some tips for you.

    Make a special Advanced Dining Reservation 180 days in advance to celebrate the special occasion.I highly suggest Cinderella's Royal Table. Make sure to notate that you are celebrating your granddaughter's birthday on your reservation when you book it. When we took my daughter on her birthday she received a special birthday cupcake with candles. You can also order a cake to be delivered to the dining experience you choose by calling the cake hotline at 407-827-2253. You can choose the flavor, filing and icing of your cake and have it customized with a happy birthday greeting. 

    You can also arrange to have a birthday gift, such as a balloon bouquet or treats, delivered to the room by ordering through Disney Floral and Gifts. 

    When you arrive, you can also ask for a complimentary happy birthday button. She will love hearing "Happy Birthday" Greetings all day long.
