    We are planning a trip to WDW in Nov 2016. How is the weather and the crowd during the first half of Nov? Also, we will have 1 birthday in Dec., 3 in March, and 1 anniv in April. Are we able to celebrate these in Nov? By getting pins or something?

    Hi Beth, thanks so much for your question. November is a great time to visit because the festive holiday decorations are up and the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is in full swing. The first half of November is usually moderate to low in crowd level. It isn't until around the week of Thanksgiving that the crowds start picking up. As for the weather, temperatures are usually in the 70s and rain is a possibility. As always, I recommend purchasing rain ponchos before your trip to save money and to be prepared for unexpected afternoon showers.

    You can absolutely celebrate all of those occasions while at Walt Disney World during your November trip. Here are a few ways:

    *Pick up your complimentary Celebration buttons at Guest Services upon entering any park, or at the front desk of your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    *At The Chapeau in The Magic Kingdom you can get a personalized hat. They have Birthday hats, and many other specialized Mickey ears to choose from.

    *Order an In-Room Celebration package to make your stay extra-special. Surprises are always fun, and at Walt Disney World they are sprinkled with a little bit of "pixie-dust".

    *You can order a specialty cake personalized for any of your celebrations. Make sure to call (407) 827-2253 at least 72 hours in advance to secure your cake order.

    *Why not indulge in a relaxing massage at Senses - A Disney Spa at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort?

    I hope these suggestions have helped with the planning process, and if you need anything else, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Have a magical day!
