    My husband and i will be celebrating our 40th bdays at disney this year , and we will be at the hoop dee do review the night of his bday 2-17-11, do they do anything special for milestone b days? What do you reccomend? Thanks sooooo much!!!

    Hi Paula!

        As much as I hate to admit it, our 40th birthdays are sneaking up on us as well!  Like you, I can think of no better place to celebrate than at Walt Disney World!!  The Hoop De Doo Review is the most perfect place that I can think of to mark this momentous occasion.  Assuming that he won't mind being the center of attention, I have some tips for ya!

        First, call 1-407-WDW-DINE and make sure that they have his birthday noted on your reservation.  Also, if you can, I would splurge on Category 1 seating, as it is the closest to the stage and has the most interaction with the performers.  At some point during the show,they will ask who is celebrating a birthday or anniversary - be sure to go wild and let them know that today is his big day.  Not only will they recognize him, but they MIGHT pull him up and let him perform a bit part in the show!

        Make sure that he is sporting his birthday pin, which can be picked up at your resort or at any Guest Relations window.  This way, all of the Cast Members and even some guests will be sure to wish him the best.  If you want to purchase a 6 inch cake, just let them know at the podium when you check in to the show.  Or, for a completely custom cake, you can call the Cake Hotline at 407-827-2253.  These custom cakes require 48 hours advance notice.  I giggle every time I use the phrase "cake hotline" - I just picture a room full of bakers sitting around a single red phone waiting for it to ring!

    Much pixie dust,
