    Hi ,, i want to celebrate a first birthday to my daughter on Disney land parks .. she will complete 1 year on 2nd of August.. but we will arrive California from 3-12 July .. can I celebrate her birthday there .. and how about cake and character ?!

    Hi, Khadeeja! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Celebrating your little one’s first birthday at the Disneyland Resort sounds incredible! The Happiest Place on Earth is THE place to celebrate no matter if it’s the actual date of a birthday, anniversary, or any other special event. So definitely stop by City Hall in Disneyland Park to pick up a complimentary birthday button. You might also consider purchasing a special pair of Mickey ears for your daughter and having them embroidered to commemorate the event. 

    No birthday is complete without a celebratory meal and the Disneyland Resort has lots of great options. For little ones, I always recommend a character meal. There are a few options for breakfast, but only one option for dinner and that’s at Goofy’s Kitchen in the Disneyland Hotel. You can even order a custom birthday cake to be delivered to your table at most table-service restaurants. You can choose the design, flavor, and even customize your message. Order your cake up to 60 days in advance by calling (714) 781-3463.

    Finally, as a special gift for yourself, stop by the Silhouette Studio on Main Street, U.S.A to have a silhouette done of your daughter. The artists here create silhouettes by hand and the result is a truly personalized and unique keepsake. I have one of my daughter from her first trip to the Disneyland Resort and it is one of my most-prized possessions. Additionally, this treasure is really inexpensive and can be completed in a matter of minutes, so squirmy 1-year-olds are no trouble at all. 

    Please stop by again if you have any other questions. I hope your visit is full of magic and memories!
