    Do you need to stay at a disney hotel in order to celebrate a 5yo princess birthday party

    Hello there, Haydee!

    First, allow me to wish a very Happy 5th Birthday to the royal Guest from all of us at planDisney! I am so delighted to hear that you are hoping to celebrate the momentous occasion at Walt Disney World. I cannot think of a better place to create birthday memories that will last a lifetime!

    There is no shortage of memorable ways to celebrate a birthday at The Most Magical Place on Earth. And the great news is that you do not need to be a Guest of a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Whether you want an exceptional dinner with your immediate Ohana and a specialty cake, or a big occasion with family and friends, there is sure to be an option that fits like a glass slipper. Your starting point to plan the best celebration ever is Disney Meetings & Events. Once you have your date and your Guestlist, you can submit a request online to start the preparations. A Cast Member will respond with one-of-a-kind venue options, themes, and entertainment possibilities. The celebrations are sure to be immersive, unique, and full of all the necessary royal details fit for a princess. 

    And if you are spending any time in the theme parks, be sure to pick up a Celebration Button from the Guest Relations location. These festive birthday accessories will help everyone know it's a big day for your travel party. You can also book a Capture Your Moment personalized photo session in the theme park of your choice to take one-of-a-kind shots, commemorating the special occasion. The talented Disney PhotoPass photographers are sure to take amazing pictures of your little one and add a few magic shots along the way! 

    I hope that the big day is memorable and magical!
    Happy Birthday!
