    Hi - I will be in magic kingdom on my 50th birthday (18th October) I want to make my day extra special and wanted to reserve the Crystal Palace for lunch and also reserve seats for the 50th anniversary desserts fireworks package in the evening

    Hiya Tracy!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for sending us this magical question! I had the chance to celebrate my birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort for the first time last year, and it was, in my opinion, the best way to celebrate a birthday. I am honoured that I get to help you plan this special day, so let's talk about how you can make this birthday magical and unforgettable! 

    I love that you were thinking about booking a special dining reservation and one of the Enchanting Extras experiences as they make your visit so unique. These reservations can be booked 60 days in advance and onwards, so this is probably why you could not book them for your birthday just yet. If you have a Resort hotel reservation, you can make your reservations 60 days before your arrival date and for the length of your stay, up to 10 days. Therefore, if you are staying at a Resort until your birthday, you will be able to book your reservations more than 60 days in advance, so be sure to mark August 13th as a very important day in your calendar! Availabilities typically drop at 6 A.M. EST, so check the Walt Disney World website early in the day.

    Now, Tracy, I thought I would share a few other things that are must-dos when celebrating your birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort. First, pick up a "Happy Birthday" button at the Front Desk of your Disney Resort, at most merchandise locations or a Guest Relations desk. Wearing a "Happy Birthday" button is a tradition at the Walt Disney World Resort, and it allows other Cast Members and Guests to join in on the birthday celebrations! Second, Rapunzel told me on my birthday that no birthday celebrations were complete without a cake, so make sure to stop by the Main Street Confectionery for a special treat. If you want a real birthday cake, you can even have a birthday cake brought to your table when dining at a Disney restaurant!

    I hope this was helpful, Tracy, and that you will have the best birthday on your next Walt Disney World Resort trip. If you have any other questions or need suggestions for your next birthday celebration, don't hesitate to reach out. As Rapunzel says: "That's the funny thing about birthdays; they're kind of an annual thing!"

    Have a magical day,
