    I am planning a trip to Disney Hollywood studios for my dads 50th birthday. Dad is a huge Star Wars fan and we know about the birthday button and wonder does he get anything special with the birthday button or any special discounts.

    Hiya Joseph! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm excited about your upcoming trip next month! I can't think of a better place for your dad to celebrate his 50th birthday than on the Planet of Batuu enjoying everything that Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has to offer. Between taking a ride on the Millennium Falcon or joining the fight against the First Order, there is so much to experience during his visit!

    Whether you are visiting Walt Disney World or the Disneyland Resort, the first order of business when celebrating a birthday is stopping by Guest Relations to grab a special birthday button. Typically, a Cast Member will write the Guest's name on the button and the Guest will then get to wear it for the remainder of their stay. While this button does not come with any special discounts, your dad will get a fair share of birthday wishes from Cast Members and other Guests throughout the day. My daughter sported one during her birthday trip last year and a wonderful Guest not only wished her a happy birthday, but she handed her Disney princess stickers to take home. 

    If you plan to eat at any table service dining locations, make sure to let them know that your dad is celebrating a special milestone. Many restaurants will bring out a complimentary birthday dessert to congratulate you on your big day. This is not always guaranteed, but will happen quite often at many locations.

    Joseph, I hope you and your dad have an unforgettable trip celebrating his birthday! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
