    Hi my mom is turning 80 next September 2023. She has never been to Disney. I was thinking of holding a family reunion there to celebrate. As of now it is 30 people and 11 rooms. Is there a planning group I should work specifically with?

    Hi Mitze,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh Boy! An 80th Birthday Celebration for your mom would be a very memorable experience at the Walt Disney World Resort! Here are a few things to think about.

    At this time, it looks like guests can only book packages through December 2022. Hakuna Matata though, that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning on your own now!

    First, I suggest checking out the types of tickets everyone would like. Does the family want to go into all the Theme Parks and Park Hop or are there some who will only go to one Theme Park per day? Next, you can think about your Disney Resorts Collection hotels. Would your family rather stay at a Value, Moderate, or Deluxe hotel? Definitely check out all the options across the property. There are also some spacious villa options as well. Since you’re booking more than 10 rooms, you should definitely connect with the Group Reservations help desk once the bookings are available. When you speak with the Cast Member, make sure to let them know about the celebration!

    Since you’ll be celebrating your mother’s 80th birthday, I’m sure you’ll want to do something special, so there are a few other things to check out. The Enchanting Extras Collection would be a great option for the whole family. There are firework viewing packages and special tours that are bound to be great memories. You can also work with the Disney Floral and Gifts Team to create an in-room celebration for your mom. From cupcakes to balloon and baskets, they have it all! And of course, you’ll want to get her a birthday button and everyone else a celebration button. These can be picked up at any front desk, Guest Relations, or merchandise location across the property.

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your mom’s birthday celebration with your family. If you have any other planning or vacation questions as you get closer to booking, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
