    My daughter will turn 9 on December 26th. We will be at WDW from 11/13-11/20. Will we be able to celebrate her birthday early during our trip or are they strict about sticking to the exact birthday of the child?

    Hi Mindy ~

    Guests often celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, honeymoons or other special occasions at Disney before or after the actual date.  Its sometimes hard to coordinate schedules to be at Disney on the exact date.  Disney completely understands that and you are welcome to celebrate your daughter's birthday during your November visit.

    Be sure to get her a "Happy Birthday" button to wear during your visit to celebrate her birthday.  If you're staying at a Disney Resort, you can request a "Happy Birthday" button for your daughter upon check-in.  If not, you can request a button for her at any Guest Relations location at the theme parks or water parks.

    If you'd like to plan something special to celebrate while you're there, let us know us and we'll be happy to give you some ideas.

    Wishing your daughter minnie magical birthday memories :-)  Allison V.
