    I am coming to Disney World next month for my birthday with my kids and my brother's family. My parents are Florida residents. Can they come visit us for the day, park their car, use the resort pools and water taxis and shuttles etc for free like us?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jana!

    You are in for an epic birthday celebration at Walt Disney World Resort next month. Be sure to stop by the front desk of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel for a birthday button soon after arrival. Disney Cast Members are the heart of The World's Most Magical Celebration and they definitely know how to make a birthday girl feel special.

    My family just got back from Walt Disney World Resort where we enjoyed an adventurous stay at the Treehouse Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. The night we arrived, two of our Floridian friends joined us for dinner at our resort. They gave the Cast Member at the entrance of our resort the name on our reservation, showed a valid ID, and had no trouble parking. Once parked, your parents will similarly have no trouble accessing the various modes of complimentary transportation on property. The pools are officially reserved for registered resort Guests, but I recommend checking with the front desk to see if your birthday wish for a pool party can be granted. Other resort activities for your family to consider are an air hockey tournament in the arcade or a Movie Under the Stars. Check out the activities board at your Disney Resort hotel for more information and options. These boards can typically be found by the lobby or feature pool area.

    I hope you have a magical birthday, Jana. Please return to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions.

    Choose magic,
