    Hello, We are a family of 4 planning to go to art of animation this July. My daughter's birthday is on one of the days, is there any celebration or special surprise that she may get at the hotel?

    Hello Carlota!

    Welcome to planDisney. I'm so glad you stopped by with this question! I know your family must be excited as you countdown to your July trip. Disney's Art of Animation Resort is one of my family's favorites so you've made a great choice in accommodations.

    Though you can use Direct-to-Room Service and head straight to your room upon arrival, you'll want to stop by the Front Desk during your stay to let a Cast Member know you about your daughter's birthday. They should have some complimentary buttons on hand and would be more than happy to give her one to wear during your visit. You can also pick one up at Guest Relations in the parks.

    During your stay be sure to order a sweet treat from Landscape of Flavors. The S'mores Cookie is a fan favorite and I've never had a Disney cupcake I didn't love, but you can also order a Celebration Cake for your foursome to enjoy in honor of the birthday girl. You'll have a choice of Dark Chocolate Cake or White Chocolate Cake with ganache and mousse filling complete with adorable mouse ear accents. I'll be celebrating my own birthday at Walt Disney World Resort later this year and I'm hoping to enjoy one of these beautiful cakes, too! Be sure to download the My Disney Experience App before your visit and you'll be able to purchase a celebration cake and other meal items via Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering. I've used this countless times over the years and my order is always fresh and waiting for me.

    Art of Animation also hosts a nightly campfire from 6:30-7:30 p.m. and Movies Under the Stars at The Big Blue Pool at 8:30 p.m. These activities are complimentary for hotel guests and would be fun little extras to add to your resort experience. Keep in mind, activities are subject to weather and timing changes. You can visit the Front Desk for the latest schedule upon arrival.

    I hope this gives you some fun ideas to celebrate your daughter's big day. If we can be of further assistance please come back and see us again with more questions.

    Wishing you magic and memories,
