    Hi. I’d love to do a gender reveal at Animal kingdom lodge. I know normally people do reveals in the parks but this would be so precious to do it at our favorite resort. Do I have any options.?

    Hi Jessica!

    Congratulations on your upcoming arrival. What a fun and magical way to reveal the gender of your baby. I love that you are doing it in a place that is so meaningful for you. 

    Most people do simple gender reveals at the theme parks with a onesie, stuffed character, or traditional hat to show off their exciting news. You could do something similar by prepurchasing an outfit or a Mickey or Minnie that you have someone at home wrap for you to take on your trip and unbox in your favorite location at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you want to buy your souvenir at Disney World, you can take your two options up to the cast member at the check-out area and let them in on what you are trying to do. They will happily ring up and wrap the correct item without letting you know so you have it for your surprise. For example, they have fun safari-themed Mickey and Minnie plushies in the Animal Kingdom Lodge gift store that would be an adorable addition to your surprise and a souvenir for your little one.

    If you are looking for something a little bit different, Disney has a service called In Room Floral and Gifts where you could have them prepare a themed gift basket for the baby, or a floral arrangement for you to be surprised with when you arrive in your room. Just remember that balloons, explosives, or color poppers will all not be allowed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge for the safety of the animals that live there.

    Another option is to make dining reservations and order a specialty cake from Amorette's Patisserie that when unboxed is either a Mickey or Minnie. These cakes are so incredibly delicious too so it is a double win for pregnant women! 

    Happy Planning and Congratulations on a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow
