    I want to celebrate my 21st birthday, but I'm going in March to Disney World, should I tell the people that my birthday is 2 months away but I still want to celebrate it? What should I do?

    Hi, Erin!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so glad to hear that you want to celebrate your birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort! There's no better place to spend a special day than The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    You’re welcome to request a complimentary celebration button in honor of your birthday during your visit, even if you’re not visiting the parks on your actual birth date. Sometimes life gets in the way, and we can’t be there on the same day—or even during the same month—as our special occasion, and that’s okay! Turning 21 is still a cause for celebration, whenever you are able to do it. The button can even be customized with your name so you’ll receive personalized birthday wishes from Cast Members throughout your visit! Also, if you have any table-service meals planned, let your server know you’re celebrating a birthday. You’ll likely get sprinkled with some extra pixie dust.  

    Happy birthday to you, Erin! I hope your vacation and 21st birthday celebration is practically perfect in every way, and please let me know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
