    Hello am going to Disneyland and California Adventure for my birthday, is there any perks at either park, including Starbucks, could I get my free drink at the Starbucks on Main Street?

    Greetings and welcome (back) to planDisney, Anna. We're so glad you're here to share this question with us. There's no better place to celebrate your birthday than at the Happiest Place on Earth! I've made it an annual tradition to celebrate my birthday at the Disneyland Resort and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made. 

    There are two ways that I like to get a burst of energy for my days at the parks. The first is taking a ride on Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! This attraction definitely gets my heart rate going and ready for the day. The second is making a stop for a caffeine boost to energize the start of my day. Like you, I also love visiting the Starbucks locations in Disneyland Park (Market House) and Disney California Adventure Park (Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe). There's just something about the pixie-dusted cups that make it extra magical.

    You can use your Starbucks app for payment at both locations inside the theme parks but unfortunately won't be able to redeem any of your rewards. Instead, you can visit the Starbucks location in the Downtown Disney District to use your app and redeem any rewards. You can also use the mobile order feature (subject to availability) at this location which I find super convenient and helpful. 

    While there aren't any special discounts or perks for birthday celebrations, I highly recommend stopping by City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A. to pick up your complimentary "Happy Birthday!" button. I love wearing this button on my special day and hearing Cast Members wish me a happy birthday throughout the day. 

    Anna, I hope this is helpful as you're getting ready for your special day. Here's wishing you a wonderful day celebrating another magical year around the sun!
