    I want to plan a party for my sons birthday, how many people can be apart of it? Do we pay for tickets too along with the packages? And can we have the party in a restaurant or is there somewhere else we can have it?

    Hey there, Alexis! I simply cannot think of a more magical place to plan a birthday party than at the Disneyland Resort!

    When it comes to celebrations, it's really up to your imagination how you want to spend the day. While there aren't any set birthday party packages available, there are lots of ways to add some magic to your son's day. Your first stop should be City Hall in Disneyland Park or the Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park to pick up a complimentary birthday button. This will garner him all sorts of birthday wishes from Cast Members and Guests throughout the day.

    Next, consider adding Disney MaxPass to your tickets so you can make FASTPASS selections quickly and easily from your mobile device using the Disneyland app. Even if your son is too young to ride many of the attractions that offer FASTPASS, downloads of all your PhotoPass photos are included when you use MaxPass. I'm certain there will be several special moments that you will want to capture so having those images included will be a big plus.

    Finally, perhaps make a reservation for a character meal. There are several character dining options in the parks and in the Disneyland Resort Hotels and you can even have a custom birthday cake delivered directly to your table. Reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance online or by calling (714) 781-3463. You will also order your birthday cake by calling that same number at least three days in advance, but the sooner the better.

    I hope this helps give you some ideas of how to celebrate your son's birthday at the Happiest Place on Earth. Happy planning!
