    Hi. We want to do a gender reveal while our entire family will be at Disney in a few weeks. We will not all be at the same parks at the same time so it would need to be done at either Disney springs or our hotel Bay Lake Towers. Any ideas would be great

    Hello Barbara, welcome to planDisney, and thank you for coming to us for ideas on how to celebrate finding out the gender of your family’s newest addition while vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resort. This is exciting!

    To start, I suggest you contact Disney Meetings & Events, they believe that if you can dream it, they can plan it. Since they specialize in creating unforgettable experiences for you, your family, and friends, they may have ideas and suggestions that I couldn’t even dream of. To begin this process, simply submit a request, sit back, and relax while the Disney Meetings & Events team begins to work their magic. Who knows, maybe your favorite character will be able to assist!

    Since your party won’t be in the same parks at the same time, you could visit Disney Springs and do some shopping at World of Disney. You could grab a Mickey and Minnie plush, take both to the register and explain to the Cast Member that you would like them to help you with a gender reveal. Hand them an envelope with the gender written inside and ask them to ring up the correct plush and place it in a box for you to open when everyone is together. Not only is this a cute way to announce whether it is a boy or a girl, but your baby will have his or her first Disney plush to commemorate the day. Even better, purchase Memory Maker and visit Disney’s PhotoPass studio just past the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. No reservation is needed, you can pick the perfect backdrop, have the entire family in the photo (limited to the size of the backdrop screen), and open the wrapped plush while the Cast Member captures everyone’s reaction! How perfect is that? If a plush isn’t your cup of tea, maybe choose the perfect princess dress or prince outfit instead, either way, this could be a great way to announce the baby’s gender to the family!

    At Disney's Contemporary Resort you should consider making a dining reservation at California Grill or Steakhouse 71, and pre-order a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake with a special message announcing the baby’s gender. After dinner, you can enjoy Happily Ever After from the California Grill observation deck (if your reservation was there) or from the 4th-floor observation deck if you dined at Steakhouse 71. I recently enjoyed dinner at California Grill with my planDisney besties Melissa H and Jenna J, so we got to enjoy Happily Ever After from the observation deck, and it was an experience I will never forget!

    Whichever option you choose, I'm sure your gender reveal will be magical. If you need any other suggestions, please feel free to swing back by!
