    I’m planning a surprise birthday trip for my younger cousin he’s turning nine years old and I was wondering do they do birthday packages we plan on being there for 4 days needing a good place to chose that’s good for kids

    Hi Artasia! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you found us and sent us this question.

    How sweet that you're going to surprise your cousin with a vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Our family loves to celebrate birthdays and many other things with a Walt Disney World vacation. While there aren't any specific birthday packages available to reserve, I'm happy to help provide some suggestions for your special celebration! 

    The first thing I would suggest focusing on is reserving your hotel. There are so many wonderful choices for your hotel stay within the Disney Resorts Collection! First, I would narrow your search by entering the dates of your visit on the homepage of the Walt Disney World website to see what choices are available. Next, I would take a look at each of the resorts that show availability and choose the one that would most appeal to your cousin and his interests. The theming at all of the resorts is so magical and memorable, however, if he has favorite characters that would be something to consider. Our family loves to spend time at the pool, so that also often drives our resort choice. If they are available, Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's All-Star Music Resort would both be great kid-friendly choices and offer Family Suites if you need to accommodate a larger travel party.

    You could also order some items to help make the birthday celebration even more festive and magical! Disney Floral & Gifts offers many birthday gift baskets and you can add on balloons and celebration cupcakes too! They deliver to any open Walt Disney World Resort, as well as open Good Neighbor Resorts and hotels located on the Walt Disney World Resort property. If you decide to place an order, I would suggest ordering at least a few weeks ahead of time to ensure you can have the items delivered on your desired date.

    Another suggestion I have is to consider making an advanced dining reservation as part of the birthday celebration. You can even order a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake in advance to be part of your meal at select dining locations found here. I would recommend taking a look at the list and deciding where your family would most enjoy celebrating. Chef Mickey's is one of my family's favorite character dining experiences where you can feast from an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet. Just be sure to save room for the cake if you choose this location! 

    When you arrive at your Disney Resort Hotel, be sure to ask for a birthday celebration button. It's complimentary and makes a great souvenir! 

    I hope you have so much fun planning this special surprise for your cousin. If you have more questions, we're here to help!

    Happy Planning!
