    Hi my daughters birthday is December 5, which also happens to be Walt’s birthday we are huge disney fans and we are planning our Disney World vacation for her birthday and my late birthday celebration. Is there anything special that is done for birthdays?

    Hi, Kelly!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    In my opinion, there is no better place to celebrate a birthday than the Walt Disney World Resort, especially if you share a birthday with Walt Disney, himself!  It would be my pleasure to help you sprinkle a little extra pixie dust over your family's birthday celebration.

    First of all, be sure to pick up your complimentary "Happy Birthday" or "I'm Celebrating" buttons at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or any Guest Relations location.  You and your daughter will love all of the birthday wishes that you receive when you wear your buttons!

    A special meal with some favorite Disney characters is a great way to recognize a special occasion.  Character dining experiences tend to be quite popular, so be sure to make your dining reservations 180 days in advance.  Did you know that you can have a birthday cake delivered to many restaurants throughout the Walt Disney World Resort?  I would also recommend that you take a look at the unique gifts and in-room celebrations offered by Disney Floral & Gifts.

    For additional ways to recognize a special day, be sure to check out the Enchanting Extras Collection.  The Enchanting Extras Collection consists of over 100 unique experiences throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.  Whether it's a regal makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or a fireworks dessert party, you're sure to find a birthday celebration that is practically perfect in every way.

    If we can help you with any other vacation planning questions that you might have, please visit us again.  Wishing you and your daughter the most magical birthday ever!
