    We are planning a surprise trip for my sons 9th birthday.This will be his first time to Disney and He will be turning 9 during our stay. Do they do anything special for little ones celebrating a birthday while exploring the parks?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Desiree! A Happy Birthday to your son and a happy UNbirthday to you! There are a few fun things you can do to celebrate your son’s big day, just like I did with my Mom’s 60 birthday this month!

    First and foremost, at either your Walt Disney World Resort hotel front desk, ticket counter or guest relations desk, be sure to grab a complimentary Birthday Button for him and an I’m Celebrating Button for you. This button will glean him birthday wishes from guests and Cast Members all vacation long! If you happen to have any Table Service Reservations, you can mention the birthday to your host and waitstaff, as they may bring along a complimentary dessert on occasion. When you are in your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room, press the Front Desk button on your room phone and the Cast Member will dial up Goofy, who will send birthday wishes to your special someone. Remember that speakerphone button… my son was screaming with delight over the call!

    If you want to splurge a bit, you can sign up for a pirate makeover at The Pirate’s League or host and in-room Disney Floral and Gifts Celebration. If I can help you plan another aspect of your magical vacation such as FastPass+ reservations or the best quick service restaurants, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
