    First of all- love this panel!! Thinking about celebrating our daughter's 6th birthday in June at Disney. What are the "extras" you get for celebrating...particularly the free/cheaper extras as we will be on a budget. Thanks!!

    Hi Cathy!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I love celebrating my birthday at Walt Disney World, and I know your daughter will feel extra-special celebrating hers there as well!  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort, make sure you add a note to your reservation that your daughter will be celebrating her birthday.  Also, you will want to pick up a complimentary Happy Birthday pin that your daughter can wear through her entire Walt Disney World vacation.  These pins are available at any Walt Disney World  Resort check-in desk or at Guest Relations at any of the four theme parks. Cast Members will often make a point of giving some extra-special attention to guests wearing these buttons.  If you are dining at a Table Service restaurant, mention to the host/hostess that you are celebrating your daughter's birthday - while nothing is guaranteed, they will often sing and bring a cupcake with a candle.  You can also order a small 6" cake upon arrival at a Table Service restaurant - the cost is inexpensive and you don't need to call in advance - just inform the host/hostess when you arrive that you would like one brought to the table.

    A great way to surprise your daughter for her birthday would be to bring from home some inexpensive dollar-store streamers, balloons and decorations.  When she is out of the room, you could quickly decorate and surprise her when she returns.  

    I hope this gives you some ideas on how you can make your little princess's birthday extra-special while she is at Walt Disney World.  Please don't hesitate to ask me any more questions you may have.  Have a magical day.
