    We are heading to WDW for my son's third birthday in November. However we are travelling and checking in on his actual birthday, can we still get a birthday button the next day when we go to the park? I feel bad he is missing out by one day. Thanks

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Melanie ~

    ​I can't think of a better place to celebrate a 3rd birthday than Disney World!

    Guests often celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, honeymoons or other special occasions at Disney before or after the actual date.  Its sometimes hard to coordinate schedules to be at Disney on the exact date.  Disney completely understands that and your son is more than welcome to get a "Happy Birthday" button to wear during your visit to celebrate his birthday.

    If you're staying at a Disney Resort, you can request one upon check in.  If not, you can request a button for him at any Guest Relations location at the theme parks or water parks.

    If you'd like to plan something special to celebrate while you're there, let us know us and we'll be happy to give you some ideas.

    Wishing your son minnie magical birthday memories :-)  Allison V.
