    I would like to get some information on birthdays at Disney for my grandson who will be turning 4 in August. He will be the only child attending along with his parents, 3 grandparents and maybe 2 other family members.

    Hi Sandra! Welcome to planDisney!

    You are in for such a treat when you get to experience the magic of Walt Disney World Resort with your family! Even without a special event like a birthday, nothing can compare to the joy that you're going to see on your grandson's face when he meets Mickey Mouse for the first time or watches the incredible Disney Enchantment fireworks show in the evening.  A little extra celebration will just be the icing on top of the most magical birthday cake!

    There are so many fun ways to incorporate your grandson's birthday into your Walt Disney World vacation.  With so many people who love him nearby, the entire trip will feel like a party!  I think a great way to begin your trip is to stop by the Front Desk of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel and grab a "Happy Birthday" button for the little birthday boy.  He can wear it throughout your vacation to get shout-outs from Cast Members and other Guests! Your entire family can even ask for "I'm Celebrating" buttons and write his name on them, just so everyone knows that this trip is all about your little guy!  If you're not staying at a Disney Resort you can also find these buttons at any Guest Relations location outside the four Theme Parks. 

    If you're planning on a Character Dining Experience to celebrate your 4-year-old, Chef Mickey's and Hollywood & Vine are some favorites of my little ones!  Did you know that you can even order a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake through the Enchanting Extras Collection?  At many dining locations around the Resort, Guests can order a specialty cake with a Happy Birthday message and it will be brought right to your dinner table! These cakes can feed 4-6 Guests and come in three different flavors. You can order when you make your Advance Dining Reservations or right through your My Disney Experience app.

    If you're hoping to have a birthday surprise waiting in the room for your little one Disney Floral & Gifts can help too! All you'll need to do is contact a Dream Maker to have a fun celebration basket, gift or balloon sent straight to your room like magic! Your grandson will be so surprised when he opens the door to even more surprises after a wonderful day at the Parks. 

    I hope you and your family have the very best time celebrating your little guy! Come back and see us again if you have any other questions, Sandra!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
