    Hi, we are coming to the Magic Kingdom in October a few days after our 10 year olds birthday. Is there anything special Disney does for such an occasion? Thanks

    Hi Anthony,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can think of no better place to celebrate a birthday than at the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    On our last visit, we celebrated my husband's birthday. I have a few suggestions to make your 10-year old's birthday extra special. 

    • Be sure to call 407-939-5277 and ask a cast member to note the birthday on your reservation.
    • If staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, be sure to request a complimentary celebratory button.
    • Make a dining reservation at a special restaurant. We love California Grill or 'Ohana. If you make a reservation just before the fireworks time, you can see the Happily Ever After show while dining.
    • Order a special treat from Disney Floral & Gifts. Our girls have loved the princess balloons.
    • Order one of the Cakes at Walt Disney World Resort.
    • If staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, contact the front desk and request a birthday call from Goofy.
    • Consider one of the many Enchanting Extras that can bring on the magic!
    At several restaurants, my husband received a complimentary cupcake and at one restaurant, he also received a card signed by several characters. What we appreciated most, however, was that whenever we mentioned his birthday and requested a window table, that request was granted so we had fantastic views at California Grill, 'Ohana and The Crystal Palace. 

    Anthony, I can already hear the singing as you celebrate! These are the kinds of memories that will bring you back together for years.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
