    This will be my grandson's first Disney vacation and we will arrive on his birthday(he's turning 8). Is there anything special the resorts or parks do, or do I need to do something on my own to make this as special as possible for him?

    Hi Michelle, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Celebrating a birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort is truly magical, and the first idea that comes to my mind is to have Disney Floral & Gifts prepare a gorgeous in-room celebration for him, so the party kicks off at the very beginning of your vacation. Mickey & Minnie’s Birthday Celebration will even feature a door tag with his name to surprise him! What do you think?

    Another must do is to ask for the Birthday Celebration buttons upon check in and wear them throughout your vacation. They will surely open many smiles along the way!

    But no birthday is fully complete without a cake, right? That's what the Walt Disney World Resort Cake Delivery is here for! You can either have a cake delivered to your Disney Hotel room or to a restaurant where you have a Dining Reservation. You will also be able to choose between a classic Mickey Mouse cake or a custom themed cake featuring your grandson's favorite character. How does it sound?

    After you've chosen the perfect place for his Happy Birthday Sing-A-Long, remember to make the Dining Reservation on March 13 - that's when your reservation window will open and you'll find the best availability. After that, call (407) 939-3463 to add a Mickey Mouse celebration cake to it or (407) 827-2253 to order a custom design cake.

    I am sure that this birthday trip will be truly unforgettable for your grandson, Michelle, and I look forward to help you even more. Come back to us if you want suggestions for dining reservations, FastPass+ arrangements and more. We're here for you!

    May the magic be with you,
