    Last minute journey..I want to celebrate both my wifes birthday (Jan 1st) and sons 9th birthday (Jan 4th) in Disneyland... Do they do special greetings or are there perks for them on birthdays?

    Aloha, Sonny! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I love your style! A last-minute trip to the Happiest Place on EARth to celebrate birthdays? You’ve definitely got a friend in me! We tend to spend most of our family birthdays at Walt Disney World Resort because visiting the Parks is like one big party. I’m sure you will find the same at Disneyland Resort.

    First stop - Guest Relations for a Celebration Button. Everyone needs to know that your wife and son are celebrating another turn around the sun! Your son will especially love how Cast Members will wish him “Happy Birthday!” It’s my daughter’s favorite part of her birthday celebrations at the Parks! To celebrate both of them, I suggest a special meal with Disney friends! Mickey’s Tales of Adventure Breakfast and Brunch Buffets will let your son interact with his favorite Disney Pals while all of you enjoy a scrumptious meal. If you would like a dinner option, Goofy’s Kitchen is an excellent choice!

    My dEAR friend, Jennifer, has some fantastic suggestions for extraordinary ways to celebrate your boy! I can’t think of a more exciting birthday experience than to build a lightsaber, so that tops the list of my suggestions! I also think the iconic rides are Disneyland Resort are one of the best ways to spend a birthday - Matterhorn Bobsleds, followed by Space Mountain and Splash Mountain are the perfect thrills for a nine-yEAR-old.

    To celebrate your Princess, look no further than the spa at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa! Every yEAR, my husband gifts me a massage at my local spa, and it is something I always look forward to! Let mama get pampered while you and your son enjoy a daddy-son date, and then you all can meet back up for World of Color - Season of Light. A fireworks spectacular is a fantastic way to end a birthday!

    chEARs to your family celebration!
