    We are coming to Disney to celebrate my daughters 6th birthday! I told them then when we booked and made our dinner reservations, but is there anything else I can do to make this extra special for her?? Thanks!!! THis is our first Disney trip~ : )

    Hi Christine!

    Happy Birthday to your daughter! We visit Walt Disney World on our kids birthdays every year and it is a wonderful way to celebrate!

    You've already taken the most important steps to ensuring she has a magical birthday, which are mentioning that it is her birthday on your Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) and noting her birthday on your reservation. Make sure to mention it is her birthday on all of your ADRs for that day and she will receive a special birthday cupcake, complete with a candle and Disney "magic" on the table when you arrive. Some of the character dining experiences will even bring out a special autographed "Happy Birthday" card.

    A few other things you can do to make her birthday special are to request a "Happy Birthday" button when you arrive at your resort. They will write her name on it and she will hear a resounding "Happy Birthday" from a slew of cast members as she walks through the parks. You can also order a special custom birthday cake for her by calling the cake hotline at 407-827-2253 at least 48 hours in advance. You can request a six-inch or eight-inch custom cake in her favorite flavor and decorated with her name.

    Consider going on a birthday fireworks cruise, where you can watch Wishes or Illuminations. This will be a memory she will never forget!

    I hope your little princess has a magical birthday!
