    Hello! Is it true you can request a complimentary lightening lanes for your birthday? If it is true is it only valid on the day of your birthday? Thank you Staci

    Hey there, hi there, Staci!

    You're always as welcome as can be at planDisney. I'd be delighted to help a fellow Mouseketeer today. Let's talk about spending your birthday at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Being at Walt Disney World on your birthday is a wish come true! While you will not receive complimentary Lightning Lane Entries on your special day, I'm happy to suggest other ways to celebrate yourself during your visit.

    • Pick up a celebration pin at the front desk of your resort or Guest Relations. Let the Cast Member know it's your birthday, and wear the pin proudly! You never know when pixie dust will fall your way.
    • Spend the day doing all of your favorite things! I was in Walt Disney World on my birthday in January. I chose to visit EPCOT (my favorite theme park), ride my favorite attraction (Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind), indulge in my favorite sweet snack (Norwegian School Bread from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe), and dine at my favorite restaurant (San Angel Inn Restaurante). It was a fantastic day full of my Disney favorites.
    • Treat yourself to a balloon! Balloons and birthdays go together like Donald and Daisy, and it's a fun way to feel like a kid again.
    • And speaking of "treat," consider adding a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake to a meal. These are available at many table-service and select quick-service restaurants.
    No matter how you spend your day, I know it will be memorable. If you need any other ideas or help planning something extra special, don't hesitate to reach out again. We're all ears, and we love celebrations!
