    I want to celebrate my daughter’s 1st birthday in Disney !! Any ideas how to make it special. ?

    Hello Sai Preeti! 

    A very warm welcome to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by with your question! 

    Celebrating your child’s birthday with a trip to the Disneyland Resort?! How magical! Disneyland and birthdays go together like a Mickey-shaped pretzel and mustard! You can have one without the other, but they're better together! 

    Here are a few suggestions to make your little one’s birthday special! First, stop by Guest Relations for a complimentary birthday button! Cast Members love to join the celebration by wishing Guests a Happy Birthday! Feel free to get an “I’m Celebrating” button for yourself! You’re celebrating too, right? 

    If you’d like to make a special dining reservation, I suggest Lamplight Lounge in Disney California Adventure Park or Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland Park. Both restaurants feature unique decor and both are right on the water. I suggest making a dining reservation on the Disneyland website or the Disneyland Mobile App. You may get lucky and score a last-minute reservation due to someone else’s cancellation. 

    Lastly, make sure to take plenty of pictures to commemorate your trip! If you purchased Genie+ be sure to take advantage of unlimited downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos including those fun photos taken on attractions! Also, make sure to take advantage of the Disney PhotoPass Photographers! They are always willing to capture special images for you! For an extra special surprise, request a Magic Shot! You never know which character will make an appearance in your picture! 

    I hope your child has a wonderful birthday and an unforgettable visit to “The Happiest Place on Earth!”

Greetings from San Diego, CA! I'm a wife, cat mom and Disney-loving "childfree millennial." I've traveled all around the world, but my favorite place to visit is "The Happiest Place on Earth!" I've been going to the Disneyland Resort for over 25 years. Each time I step through the turnstiles to enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy, I feel the magic of Walt Disney's original park. I can't wait to answer your questions and help you experience all that the Disneyland Resort has to offer! Learn More About Tiffanie
