    How do I plan a gender reveal at Disney world?

    Congratulations on your little Mousekteer, Alexandra! I'm happy to help you with some ways to celebrate the happy occasion!

    Before we get into ideas for your gender reveal, let's talk photos! You'll definitely want to capture this milestone event in your family, so I recommend scheduling a Capture Your Moment photo session. You'll get 20 minutes with one of the Disney PhotoPass photographers in the Magic Kindom Park or Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. That gives you amazing photos of your big moment while you just enjoy the surprise.

    Now, here are some ideas I've seen for gender reveals at the Walt Disney World Resort:

     - Choose two outfits and enlist the help of a Cast Member to purchase the one for the gender of your baby. Have them box it up so you can't see it, and then open the box in front of Cinderella Castle.

     - Similar to above, but choose a Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse plush to open.

     - Visit The Chapeau in the Magic Kingdom and have them embroider an ear hat with "It's a Boy!" or "It's a Girl!" If you've chosen your baby's name, you could include that as well!

     - Have a friend or family member (or even an available Cast Member!) purchase a balloon for you in pink or blue, then put it in a bag. Again, open in front of Cinderella Castle.

     - Pick up a free Celebration Button at Guest Relations or one of the retail shops and take it to Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe to add an artful "It's a Boy!" or "It's a Girl" message for just a few dollars. Have them bag it up and then open it - well, you know!

     - Disney Floral & Gifts can deliver a custom gift basket to your Resort hotel. Ask a friend to call them and let them know which basket to bring and schedule a time for delivery. You'd have to take your own photos for this one, but you'd have some nice mementos.

     - Contact Disney Meetings & Events to plan something extra special and unique. The sky is the limit!

     - Check out more gender reveal ideas from my fellow planDisney panelists!

    Alexandra, these are just a few quick thoughts on how you can celebrate your little prince or princess. I wish you a lifetime of love and magic, and I hope you'll come see us again to help plan your little one's first visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
