    We will be checking in at the Art of Animation resort on my daughter's birthday. Is there any way I could pay to have a small birthday surprise waiting in our room for her when we check in? If so, who would I ask to be able to get that to happen?

    Welcome, Paige! Celebrating a birthday at Walt Disney World is the best! I'm getting ready to plan another Disney trip and considering taking this vacation over my next birthday because it just makes it all the more magical!

    My friends back home surprised me on a previous birthday by pre-ordering a birthday gift package to be in my resort room when we returned from the park one day. What a surprise to open the door and find the room decked out for my birthday! There are all sorts of options that you can choose from for your daughter's birthday. Check out the birthday packages from Disney Floral and Gifts. Surely you'll find a surprise there that would thrill your daughter! There are also some fun Welcome To Disney packages that are super cute!

    Since Disney Floral and Gifts delivers straight to the resort and then Cast Members at the resort deliver it to your room, it is not always possible to have it in your room when you check in since your room may not be pre-assigned. However, it will be delivered after your check-in, which is why I prefer to order it on the second or third day so it's waiting when we return from a fun day at the parks!

    I hope that helps you plan for your daughter's birthday during your Walt Disney World trip, Paige! Enjoy your stay at Art of Animation! It's a favorite of my family! Be sure to ask for a free Disney birthday button for your daughter when you check in at the resort. Cast Members, Disney Characters, and even other guests go out of their way to wish birthday guests a happy birthday when they see them wearing a pin. Your daughter will feel like royalty!
