    Can a guest get a Celebrating button if it's not their actual birthday? I will be bringing three friends to Disneyland to celebrate a birthday but could only get reservations for a couple weeks after her birthday.

    Hi there, Nicole! 

    I’m so glad you stopped by planDisney with this question about the Disneyland Resort. I hope your friends—especially the birthday girl—are all looking forward to visiting the Happiest Place on Earth soon! There is no better place to celebrate a special occasion with your favorite people.

    Yes, you may absolutely pick up a complimentary birthday button for your friend at City Hall in Disneyland Park or the Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park, even if you’re not visiting the Disneyland Resort on the actual date of her birthday. It can also be customized with her name so she’ll receive personalized birthday wishes from Cast Members and fellow Guests all day! 

    If you have any table-service meals planned, let your server know you’re celebrating a birthday because you may receive some extra magic during your dining experience. For an extra special treat, you can also pre-order a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake for delivery to select restaurants inside the theme parks. You can add a celebration cake to your dining reservation when you book online at least three days in advance, or you can order in person at the restaurant’s host podium.

    I hope this information is helpful, Nicole, and that you enjoy a wonderful Disneyland Resort visit with your pals. Please stop by again with more questions as your pixie-dusted planning continues!

    Wishing you magic,
