    we are celebrating 2 birthdays at Disneyworld this summer.....I understand that the restaurants have a "house cake' that can be ordered upon arrival.. I was wondering what type of cake this is and should we order something a bit more elaborate?

    Hi Peter!

    I can't think of a better place to celebrate some Birthdays! Celebrations at Walt Disney World are simply the best!

    Be sure to visit Guest Services in the park to receive 'Happy Birthday' buttons so that Cast Members all around the resort can acknowledge your Birthday Guests throughout your Magical vacation!

    A six-inch celebration cake can be added to your table service meal at any Disney-owned restaurant on site. You can request one at the hostess desk when you arrive to check in for your reservation, or from your server, and provide instructions as to how and when you'd like the cake to be brought to your Birthday Guest at the table. The cost of the cake will be added to your check. This cake type serves about 4-6 guests guests and usually both chocolate & vanilla are on hand and available. This cake type is not personalized.

    Should you prefer to Customize Your Celebration with a specific cake flavor, type, size or other personalization, you can order in advance by calling Disney's Cake Ordering hotline at (407) 827-2253. A minimum of 48 hours notice is required and the possibilities for this cake type are endless! I've ordered two of these custom cakes in the past few years, a Princess one for my daughter and a Pirate Mickey themed one for my son. They were both incredibly gorgeous, delicious and made for great photos of the amazing birthday memories we created at Walt Disney World.

    Visit the Customize Your Special Occasion page on the website to learn about more amazing ways to enhance your birthday celebrations at Walt Disney World!

    Wishing you an especially Magical time as you celebrate special birthdays at Walt Disney World this summer Peter!
