    Giving my DD surprise (1st) trip to WDW in Dec. Her 8th bday is in Sept. Heard of people celebrating "unbirthdays" on this thread, but is it common? DH thinks I'm nuts. But with a Sept bday & school commits, doubt we'll ever make it near her day.


    I can assure you that you are not nuts, but not wanting to cause a ripple in your marriage, let me give you some information for your hubby. 

    Disney's policy is: if you're celebrating, they're celebrating. There's no need to show your birth certificate to get a birthday button! 

    Last year, my husband and I celebrated our 15th Wedding Anniversary at Disney.  Although our anniversary is in April, school activities, tax day, and many other things usually get in the way of us being able to celebrate for longer than just a meal.  We decided on a trip to Disney in September when our schedules at work and at home were more accommodating. Although it was odd to have folks wish us "Happy Anniversary" while we wore our buttons, after a day, we were both into it. After all, we WERE celebrating, even though it was a few months later!

    I mentioned our anniversary celebration when we made our room reservations and for our special dinner at Artist's Point.  I wasn't disappointed.  We were given a quiet, corner room overlooking the Sassagoula River at Port Orleans: French Quarter and a table tucked away in the back of the restaurant by the window.  Best of all, we didn't have to show our wedding license.  Disney doesn't have a set policy of special nuances for celebrations, but you'll find lots of pixie dust sprinkled throughout your stay from Cast Members who thrive on making your day.

    So, from a girl who had a birthday in the summer (which meant birthday parties with only half her class due to summer vacations and the like), I say go for the "unbirthday" and make your daughter feel special no matter the time of year at Disney!

    Wishing y'all a magical birthday celebration!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
