    We are coming to Disney world in October for my daughters birthday and it’s her first time at Disney … does Disney do anything cool for your birthday ? We will be at magic kingdom on her actual bday

    Hi Chad! You're taking your Disney Princess to the Most Magical Place on Earth to celebrate her special day! You get extra “good dad points” for doing that!

    Upon arrival at either your Disney Resort Hotel or the theme parks, you should ask for a birthday button! This is a complimentary button that your daughter will be given to wear during the vacation. Cast Members and Guests, alike, will wish her a happy birthday! After the vacation, it is her button to keep as a souvenir of her special visit!

    Since this is a special visit, you might consider booking a Disney Character Dining experience to celebrate the big day! It doesn’t matter how old you are, celebrating your birthday with Mickey, Minnie, or other favorite characters definitely adds to the excitement of the day! A few restaurants to consider are Chef Mickey’s, Tusker House, Garden Grill Restaurant, Topolino’s Terrace (for breakfast), and Hollywood and Vine! All of these feature Disney character favorites!

    Chad, I see that you're just weeks away from your visit. While it might be hard to book character dining this close to your vacation, I do encourage you to frequently check for availability! You can check for dining availability on the My Disney Experience app! You never know when someone might cancel a reservation! I've seen popular dining reservations available up to the day of dining, but you need to check often!

    Chad, I hope your daughter has an extra magical birthday!
