    This is my first time to wdw. Our trip is 1/19-1/23. My daughter is turning 10 during our visit. Is there any recommendations for us

    Hi Sarah

    Congratulations on your first visit to Walt Disney World and on your daughter's upcoming birthday.

    Here are some ideas to make the visit extra special:
    • Remember to check in at City Hall at the Magic Kingdom, or at guest relations at other parks, and pick up birthday and first-visit buttons. Many Cast Members will go out of their way to wish your daughter a Happy Birthday or greet her with a kind gesture to make the visit more memorable.
    • If you are staying on property, let the Cast Members know at check-in that it's your daughter's birthday and first-visit. It's possible the front desk may be able to help arrange some Disney magic for your daughter.
    • You also may consider contacting the Dream Makers at Disney Floral and Gifts online or at (407) WDW-GIFT or (407) 939-4438. If you are staying on property, they can help create a personalized in-room celebration featuring your daughters' favorite Disney characters. They can also deliver personalized gift baskets to your Disney resort or a Disney restaurant where you may be enjoying a celebratory meal.
    • Arrange a special character meal dining reservation. You usually cannot go wrong with a character breakfast at Chef Mickeys.
    • Consider giving your daughter get a princess make-over at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
    • A simple treat, like buying a your daughter a balloon or bag of popcorn on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom, will likely bring her a huge smile.

    Enjoy this special vacation.
