    Hi, During our first time trip to WDW my son will be celebrating his 5th birthday!!! What kinds of things does disney do for children celebrating birthdays? I am trying to make this the absolute best birthday for my son. What is a birthday button?

    Hi Tori,

    When you arrive at one of the parks, make sure to visit Guest Services to request the free birthday button for your son to wear to share with everyone his special event.  I'd also let the hotel know as well as any restaurant that you are eating at that it is his birthday.  Sometimes, some surprises may be come his way!  

    Also, Disney actually has a cake hotline where you could pre-order a cake for him.  The number is 407-827-2253. 

    If you even more curious for other ideas, we actually have over 150 questions answered on birthday celebrations.  Just click here if you'd like to sample some other similar questions and answers.

    Have a wonderful trip and magical birthday celebration for your son!
