    We will be coming to WDW staying at Old Key West resort February 23-28 this yr. During our stay, my daughter will be celebrating her 9th birthday on the 27th. I am wondering if there are things you do or offer free of charge or even at a cost?

    Happy early birthday to your daughter! Nine is such a fun age, my son just turned nine this past December. My how time flies and they grow up so fast.

    The first thing you can do is let them know at the front desk upon check-in that she is celebrating a birthday. They will get her a birthday button with her name on it. This is free and be sure to have her wear it for the entire trip, not just on her birthday! You will be amazed at the special attention she will receive from cast members throughout your trip. Don't forget to mention her birthday at any restaurant you go to. Often, they'll surprise you with little touches to make the meal even more special! 

    Another great thing is to call the cake hotline to order a special birthday cake to have at one of your meals during your vacation. That number is (407) 827-2253. There is also the Disney Florist that can arrange elaborate or small gift baskets or treats to have delivered to your room.

    Some other favorite birthday tips are letting your daughter plan that day. Go to her favorite park and follow her lead on when and where she wants to go. You could also purchase a set of special Mickey Ears. You would be amazed at the options there are from the classic to the downright silly. Then, you could maybe have them embroidered with her name or something like "Birthday Girl"! There are other great souvenirs that like a special charm bracelet from Uptown Jewelers on Main Street in Magic Kingdom commemorating this magical birthday trip! 

    I hope these ideas gave you something to think about in order to make her birthday even more magical! May she be blessed with happy memories and all her wishes coming true.
