    Hello, My family and I are taking a trip to Disneyland on May 4th, while this is starwars day it is also my daughters birthday! So, I was wondering if they do anything extra special for her since this is a special day for Disney as well!

    Greetings, Heather. Thanks for visiting planDisney, and a very merry almost birthday to your daughter!

    If you're visiting on May the 4th, your family is sure to come across Jedis, Wookies, and droids visiting from all over the galaxy during your visit to the Disneyland Resort. Be sure to grab your daughter a complimentary Birthday button from City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A., or one of the Cast Members at select merchandise locations throughout both parks. My kids are always amazed at the number of people - Cast Members and Guests - who stop to wish them a "happy birthday" just because they're wearing a button. 

    Heather, there is nothing more special than celebrating a birthday at the Disneyland Resort, and I know your daughter will certainly have a magical day. However, I am unaware of anything extra special done on May 4th for those celebrating their birthday. But no fear - I do have some suggestions on things you can do to make it extra fun! First, you can make dining reservations at one of the amazing dining locations throughout the park - and be sure to order a Mickey-shaped celebration cake for after dinner when you make your reservation. My kids always love those! Next, find Disney PhotoPass photographers throughout the parks to capture memories in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, on Main Street, U.S.A., or with your favorite character. Or, if you want something extra special, book a special experience like building a lightsaber at Savi's Workshop or a character dining experience at Plaza Inn or Goofy's Kitchen

    Heather, I am so excited for you and your daughter to make amazing memories during your visit. Please visit us again with any other planning questions!

    See you in the parks,
