    My daughter's 4th Birthday is May 9th.. we are travelling to Disney world May 19/28 is it possible she can still celebrate her Birthday at Disney even that its passed?

    HI Jennifer,

    I have spoken to a few families at WDW who were celebrating birthdays that just passed or ones that were coming up.  During our recent trip, we actually left WDW the morning of my daughter's birthday.  Since we wouldn't be in the park or having dinner at WDW on her actual birthday, we decided to celebrate it the day before.  She had a blast even though it wasn't her actual birthday.

    When you check into your resort tell a castmember that you are celebrating a birthday and he or she will give your daughter a special birthday pin.  You can choose to let your daughter wear it everyday of your vacation or pick one day to be the special birthday day.  When she wears her pin she will get many unsolicited "Happy Birthday" wishes.  If you are not staying at a resort you can obtain a pin from guest services at any of the theme parks or Downtown Disney.

    Have a wonderful trip
