    we plan to come up for my sons birthday how do i go about getting our room decorated for his birthday since we will be hours away from family. i should include his birthday is on halloween.

    Hi Kristen! Let me be the first to wish your son (an early) happy birthday! It’s so cool that his birthday is on Halloween AND he’ll be spending his special day at the Most Magical Place on Earth! This will be a birthday he’ll never forget!

    There is a way to prepare a special surprise for your son in your Walt Disney World Resort hotel! Florida Fresh Floral is a local vendor specializing in making dreams come true for Guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. Presently, the vendor is known as Disney Floral and Gifts, however, that group will only accept orders for delivery dates through August 26, 2023. For deliveries beginning on August 27, 2023 (and after) Florida Fresh Floral will be able to accommodate you! Florida Floral Fresh doesn’t have their website operating at this time, but there will be more information available as we approach the transition from Disney Floral and Gifts to Florida Fresh Floral.

    My wife and I have surprised our boys with birthdays at the Walt Disney World Resort over the years. We have packed a few surprise items in our suitcase to create an in-room surprise for them. We’ve included Disney-themed t-shirts, candy, stuffed animals, character autograph books, and other Disney-related items that we knew would be of interest to them. We ordered some of those items in advance on We’ve also taken balloons, streamers, and a roll of tape to decorate the room!

    Kristen, don’t forget to request a birthday button upon arrival at your resort hotel or any of the Disney Parks! They are complimentary! In the parks, you can pick up the button at Guest Relations. You could even request this without your son knowing and include it as part of his special birthday surprise in your room. He can then wear the button during his visit so that Cast Members can wish him a happy day!

    Happy Planning!
