    Hi Panel! Would love some thoughts/ideas on celebrating daughter's 9th birthday. We are staying at YC and will be spending the day at Epcot (breakfast at Akershus, which will be the big splurge). Any other ideas on how we can make it fun and memorable?

    Hi, Nicole!

    I bet your family is looking forward to visiting the Walt Disney World Resort this fall. There’s nothing quite like spending a birthday at “The Most Magical Place on Earth!” 

    Disney Floral & Gifts can help you celebrate by arranging for special Disney gifts and surprises to be delivered directly to your room at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. There are many gift baskets and bouquets to choose from that can be customized to a special occasion, favorite Disney character or theme. They create and arrange for delivery of the gift, along with a card and message from you. Your room can also be decorated to look like Mickey and the Gang stopped by to welcome your family and kick off the big celebration with some extra magic! Call the Dream Makers at (407) WDW-GIFT (939-4438) for more information.

    Be sure to pick up a complimentary birthday button for your daughter when you check into your resort or visit the theme parks. It can even be customized with her name so she’ll receive personalized birthday wishes from Cast Members throughout your visit! You can pick up a similar souvenir celebration buttons for the rest of your family to join in the fun. For your breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, don’t forget to tell your server you’re celebrating a special occasion. The birthday girl is likely to get a sweet treat at the end of your meal! Another option is to order a custom cake to be enjoyed after your lunch or dinner at most table-service restaurants. To order one of these personalized creations as a special surprise for your daughter, call (407) 827-2253.

    I hope this helps, Nicole, and that you have a pixie-dusted visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! Please write back with more questions as your planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
