    My daughter is turning 18 next week. We will be staying at Pop Century and are spending the day at Epcot.. How can I make her day extra special.

    Hi there, Denice! 

    First and foremost, we would like to wish your daughter a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY from us here at planDisney! 

    There’s no better place to spend a birthday than at The Most Magical Place on Earth! And since you’re staying inside the magic at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, I would encourage you to let the Cast Member at the front desk at Disney’s Pop Century Resort know you’re celebrating your daughter’s birthday. Be sure to ask for a birthday button while you’re there! It makes for a superb souvenir, and it also lets Cast Members know it’s your Mousketeer’s birthday and you’re in a celebrating-kind-of-mood! She will get lots of special birthday greetings from Cast Members and Guests alike.

    Since you’ll be going to my very favorite theme park, EPCOT, I’m elated to tell you EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is in full swing where you can take a Taste Tour across six Continents. Although it doesn’t get better than trying delectable cuisine from around the world, do try to save room for a special lunch! Since it’s a day to celebrate, might I suggest you spend it with some special pals? At Garden Grill Restaurant, the character interaction is top-notch, and it would be so much fun to experience it during your daughter’s birthday. The characters here will love taking all the socially distanced selfies with her while she munches on her scrumptious meal. Did you know you can also order a specialty cake here to celebrate her birthday? Garden Grill Restaurant is one of the participating locations that allow Guests to pre-order a delectable Mickey Mouse Celebration specialty cake. Whether you decide to eat here or at another location, be sure to tell the server of the restaurants you’re celebrating a special birthday. 

    I hope your princess is a fan of royalty! Wave hello to your favorite princesses as they go by in a horse-drawn carriage during the Princess Promenade that travels around the World Showcase. Princess Jasmine has recently been spotted greeting Guests at the Morocco Pavilion, and you can also spot Queen Anna and our favorite ice queen Elsa in the Norway Pavilion!

    You’re coming at the perfect time because firework spectaculars are back!  Make beautiful memories as you watch EPCOT Forever fireworks dazzle the sky. If you’re interested, you can experience a Fireworks Specialty Cruise right from the water! 

    Your Mouseketeer’s birthday is sure to be special because you’ll be making magical memories together at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Have an enchanting time, Denice!
