    It will be my daughter's 15th birthday in February. Is there any birthday special/ deal/ discount for birthday boy/ girl? What is best to celebrate a teen's birthday? She still loves disney atmosphere but not so much in disney characters.

    Hi Jo,

    Please wish your daughter a happy birthday from the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  I hope her special day is extra magical this year.

    There is no current birthday discount or promotion at Walt Disney World.  A few years ago, Disney admitted guests to a Disney theme park for free on their actual birthday but that promotion is no longer in effect. 

    There are many things, however, you could do to make your daughter's 15th birthday memorable at Walt Disney World.  In fact, I just wrote a whole article on that subject for the Orbitz blog last month.  If you'd like to take a look at my list of suggestions, just go to and search "teen Disney travel" and my article will pop right up. 

    As a high school teacher and administrator, I work with teenagers every day and I am fairly confident that your teenager would enjoy some one-on-one time with you either shopping at Downtown Disney or indulging in a teen-oriented spa treatment at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa.  Schedule a special birthday meal at a sophisticated restaurant on property.  For instance, maybe you could dine with her at the California Grill atop Disney's Contemporary Resort while the Wishes fireworks display erupts over Cinderella Castle.  Wouldn't that be a meal to remember?  Or you could host a magical birthday celebration on board a private fireworks cruise.  Experiences such as the fireworks cruise can be booked by calling (407) WDW-PLAY.

    No matter how you choose to celebrate, be sure to pick up a birthday button for her to wear as she explores Walt Disney World.  If she wears one of these buttons, Cast Members will go out of their way to make sure she has a memorable birthday celebration.

    Thanks for a great question!
