    I am celebrating my BIG 60 Birthday at WDW with my grown children and Grandchildren in March 2020. We have our Rooms at Shades of Green. I am hoping to make dinner reservations at Cinderella's Castle. Do you have any other BIRTHDAY suggestions?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Cindy!

    How exciting that you’re planning an epic birthday trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! You’ll also be staying at my family’s home-away-from-home when we visit Walt Disney World Resort: Shades of Green.

    Make sure you’re ready to make those birthday dinner reservations for Cinderella’s Royal Table 180 days in advance of your visit. This is one of the most popular restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort, and reservations fill up fast. Another of my favorite birthday destinations, though, is California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. From its outdoor breezeway you’ll have an amazing view of Magic Kingdom Park’s Happily Ever After fireworks (with the soundtrack piped in through the speakers). It’s a gorgeous way to end an evening at Walt Disney World Resort!

    My family and I also love celebrating special occasions at Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. We’ve attended this show for our wedding anniversary, Thanksgiving dinner, and both my and my daughter’s birthdays, too. They even bring up the Guests who are celebrating birthdays and teach them a little birthday dance! It’s a lot of fun.

    If you want to take some time to relax, the Magnolia Spa at Shades of Green has a wonderful package called the Magnolia Grand. This 2.5 hour experience includes a massage, facial, foot massage and a special paraffin hand treatment. It is a magical way to unwind! You’ll also find amazing spa experiences at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (which is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Shades of Green).

    I hope you enjoy your magical birthday celebration at Walt Disney World Resort, Cindy! Make sure you pick up a complimentary “Happy Birthday” button in the Theme Parks to let everyone know you’re celebrating your special day. Until then, please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help you plan your magical getaway.
