    My family will be traveling to Disney World for my son's 4th birthday. Are there any special events or extras that I could look into to help celebrate his birthday?

    Hi Alyssa, Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can think of no better place to spend a Birthday than at Walt Disney World Resort. Your whole family is going to remember this trip forever!

    Your whole party will want to pick up celebration buttons from your resort hotel front desk or at guest services. Your son can wear the Birthday button and everyone else can show their festive support with the 'I'm Celebrating' style. These free wearable badges are not only great mementos, but they pack their own pixie dust as you wear them proudly.

    For extra fun, you can have your resort hotel room decorate prior to your arrival, your son can officially become a pirate, you can book a dessert party at your favorite nighttime spectacular and fireworks show, and so much more thanks to the Enchanting Extras Collection.

    Have you thought about a special Birthday meal yet? Log in to your My Disney Experience account or app and check out your Character Dining Options. And don't forget about birthday cake! Specialty cakes can be delivered to your resort hotel room or to a number of participating restaurants, and are just as tasty as they are cute.

    Don't forget to check out your resort hotel's recreation schedule, as there are free activities throughout the day like movies under the stars or bring-your-own-s'mores campfires. Chip and Dale even turn the campfire at Disney's Fort Wilderness into a Campfire Sing-A-Long!

    I hope your son loves every minute of his super special Birthday trip, Alyssa, and we'll see you real soon!
