    My daughter's 6th birthday is in Nov. and we are planning a Disney trip. I want to make it as Magical as can be so I would love some suggestions. Is there a way she could be part of a parade? Is that chosen randomly or is there something to be done?

    Hi, Noemi!
    Thanks for checking in with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Birthdays at Walt Disney World Resort are SO special. I'm glad you asked this question.

    There are many ways you can create special memories during your daughter's sixth birthday. First, my daughter loved turning into a "real" princess at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Magic Kingdom Park. Add a birthday pin (which you can snag for free at Guest Relations when you enter the park or look for a Cast Member who will help you find a birthday pin.) When the birthday princess wears that pin, she will hear everyone say "Happy birthday, princess!" You can also check out all of the additional ways to help celebrate a birthday at Disney World. 

    A birthday pin is the best way to alert Cast Members of your daughter's special day. Disney magic is unplanned and you cannot expect it to happen. But I know my daughter had more characters say hi and wish her a happy birthday during parades. She has had a chance to talk to Cast Members and sometimes had little magical moments that we could have never expected on a birthday visit. Focus on the fun and Disney magic might happen while you're celebrating. 

    I hope that helps you plan a very special visit for your birthday girl! Let me know if I can help answer any additional questions!
