    Hi I’m bringing my family to Disney for my 40th birthday in August. My children are five and nine and I’m looking for an extra special way to spend the day. Do you have any ideas or suggestions. Thanks a million

    Hi there Maria!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Celebrating your birthday at the Disneyland Resort sounds like a fantastic idea! It is the perfect place for you and your children to truly have fun together while making magical memories. I'd love to give you some advice to make your birthday extra special.

    First, make sure to stop at City Hall, located near the entrance of Disneyland Park, to pick up a complimentary birthday button! It's a great feeling to wear this around the Parks and be wished "Happy Birthday" by Cast Members and even some of your favorite characters.

    I would also suggest making a special dining reservation. Since you will be celebrating with children, everyone might enjoy a Character Dining experience. My family loved the delicious food and unique characters at the Chip 'n Dale Critter Breakfast at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. You can also order a celebration cake to be delivered at any table-service restaurant in the Disneyland Resort Theme Parks or Hotels by calling (714) 781-DINE or (714) 781-3463.

    If staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, you can REALLY make your birthday memorable by having an in-room celebration through Disney Floral & Gifts. After an adventurous day at the Parks, you can return to your hotel room that has been decked out for an incredible in-room birthday party!

    I hope this gives you some ideas, and I can't wait for you to celebrate your special day at the Happiest Place on Earth!
