    Hey! I'm planning my daughter's 5th birthday at Disney it's May 7th since it's after the big 50 celebration I'm not sure what will be planned during that time I need help finding ideas and things to do she loves Elsa and Tianna FYI

    Hey Derrico! 

    Welcome to planDisney! I love celebrating birthdays at Walt Disney World Resort! We have the best time and the memories made have been so special. I would love to help you and I have the following ideas that you should check out: 
    • A birthday doesn't begin until you pick up a complimentary "Happy Birthday" button for your princess to wear on her special day. Head to any Guest Relations or Front Desk location to find one! I have also had luck at some merchandise locations. Just ask a Cast Member! To pretty up the button I would visit Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom Park where for a small fee they can beautifully calligraphy her name onto the button! 
    • You need to stop reading this and open a new window and try to book a reservation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! Your princess can get a special makeover from a Fairy Godmother Apprentice right in Cinderella Castle! Reservations can be hard to get and they start booking 60 days ahead. Oh no! I see you are already past that. My tip is to keep checking as guests can cancel up to one day before without a cancellation fee. If you are on a limited budget I would consider bringing a dress that you found on your own! Don't forget a backup outfit as your princess may be done with her princess dress after a few hours or minutes. 
    • Meet Princess Tiana and a Visiting Princess at Princess Fairytale Hall at Magic Kingdom Park 
    • Don't miss the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom Park where you will catch both Tiana and Elsa on beautiful floats. (Tip: Look for the fire-breathing dragon!)
    • Meet Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus at EPCOT
    • Ride Frozen Ever After in EPCOT. Head to the Norway Pavilion for a fun boat ride through Arendelle. (FYI: There are two drops with one going forward that is a bit exciting and a backward one that is very gentle)
    • While at EPCOT, you may notice some extra special greenery and floral masterpieces as you will be there during the International Flower & Garden Festival. Look for the new Princess Tiana topiary at the American Adventure Pavilion! Elsa and Anna will be at the Norway Pavilion!
    • Catch For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration at Disney's Hollywood Studios. It is hilarious and fun with a magical ending! Fun for parents too- trust me!
    • I suggest having a lovely birthday celebration meal planned for your princess and ordering a Celebration Cake! I ordered a chocolate one for my daughter's birthday and it was delicious! We ate the leftovers for the entire trip.
    • A very special treat is to reach out to Disney Floral & Gifts to have a gift, flowers, or balloons delivered to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room!
    I hope that this helps make it a magical day for both of you! Let me know if you have any more questions!
