    Hi panel I have a question about a birthday celebration, my family and I are coming in Dec 10-16 my daughters birthday is Dec 20 even though we will not be there on her actual birthday can we still celebrate it there and get the birthday offers from WDW?

    Hi, Lisa!

    You are welcome to celebrate any occasion whenever you are at Walt Disney World!  Stop by any Guest Service location for free buttons to celebrate Birthdays, Anniversaries, and more!   Wear your button proudly so everyone knows you (or your daughter in this case!) is CELEBRATING!

    When you are dining at a table service location, let your server know you have a birthday girl with you!  They will sometimes bring a sweet treat for the celebration.  Cakes are available for purchase, inquire at the podium when you are checking in.

    I always suggest to bring along some decorations for your room, and bring a birthday card for the characters to sign in lieu of an autograph book.  This becomes a great keepsake.  If you are looking for something special, schedule a delivery from the Disney Florist.  Check out their great items at

    We just celebrated my niece's birthday in Disney earlier this summer.  We planned a special dinner early in the vacation, and brought her small gifts to open, all with a Disney theme.  I even included a Disney gift card so she could get whatever magical gift she wanted.  It was so much fun!  

    Wishing your princess a magical birthday celebration in Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
