    My husband, myself, our 7 year old and 4 year old plan to visit over my birthday and Valentine's Day. What should we do to make it special? What tips/ tricks should we know to get freebies for my birthday?

    Hi Tara!

    Visiting Walt Disney World for your birthday is such a special and fun idea! I visit every year on my birthday (which is also in February!) so I can give you a few tips and tricks.

    When you make your reservation online, make sure to note that you are celebrating your birthday. You can note a birthday celebration on all of your advanced dining reservations. In the past, when I dined at a Walt Disney World restaurant on my birthday, I received a little special treat, such as a cupcake with a candle.

    You can also obtain a complimentary "Happy Birthday" button when you arrive by telling a Cast Member that it's your birthday. They will even personalize the button with your name.

    Make sure to wear your Happy Birthday button all day long, as you will enjoy birthday greetings! Wearing your birthday button is also your best bet for receiving an unexpected sprinkle of birthday magic. It's difficult to predict those unexpected moments of magic but wear your button in a visible location and you may get a sprinkle of pixie dust.

    You can also sign-up in advance for birthday perks and rewards at places such as Sprinkles, Starbucks, and Earl of Sandwich. If you are enrolled in these perks programs, visit Disney Springs and pick up your free cupcake, Starbucks drink, and sandwich!

    You can also make your birthday extra special by ordering a flower arrangement or gift basket to arrive in your Walt Disney World Resort room on your birthday. Visit Disney Floral & Gifts to place an order. Another option is to order a birthday cake to be delivered to your restaurant of choice for your birthday. 

    Happy birthday from planDisney!
