    I would like for my daughter Mary to get a call from a Disney character on her birthday tomorrow June 19 2024. What do I need to do?

    Welcome to planDisney, John. Happiest of birthdays to Mary! 

    Your question filled my heart with joy as I thought of your daughter and her amazing father, who wants to celebrate her in such a magical fashion. I wish I had a way to tell you that Mickey or another Disney character could call her to share their merriest birthday wishes, too. It would be amazing, but sadly, it is not something that is currently offered. 

    If a trip to Walt Disney World is in the plans for this year, I have a few ideas to bring some Disney sparkle to her birthday next year. At most stores in the theme parks and resorts, you can pick up a complimentary "It's My Birthday" celebration button. You can take the button to Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Magic Kingdom Park for an extra special touch. For a nominal charge, they will personalize the button with extraordinary style. You can also take a birthday card to Meet Mickey at Town Square Theater or any other character meet-and-greet for a signature. I had a birthday card signed by Ariel for my mother-in-law. She will tell you she is a tomboy, but seeing Ariel's signature was a surprise that made her smile. We all have a little bit of princess in us - and I am glad for it!

    As for your daughter's birthday tomorrow, all I have to offer is I think Walt and his talented team had her in mind when they wrote these lyrics:

    Oh, it's a jolly holiday with Mary
    Mary makes your heart so light
    When the day is gray and ordinary
    Mary makes the sun shine bright
    Oh, happiness is bloomin' all around her
    The daffodils are smilin' at the dove
    When Mary holds your hand, you feel so grand
    Your heart starts beatin' like a big brass band

    It's a jolly holiday with Mary
    No wonder that it's Mary that we love

    John, with you as her father, I have no doubt she will feel like a princess on her special day. If tomorrow were my day to blow out birthday candles, my wish would be for her to have the most magical day. I will be thinking of her and sending my best birthday wishes out into the universe to celebrate her.

    Please come back to planDisney if we can help with any other amazing Disney ideas and plans you have. We try our best to help get you the information needed to make your dreams come true.

    Wishing Mary a Happy Birthday and you a very merry un-birthday!
