    We will be on property at Disney World for the week of Thanksgiving, which includes our daughter's 10th birthday. We have reservations at the Swan and park reservations for Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. Her birthday is Wednesday, and we need ideas!

    Greetings, Bethann!

    Welcome to planDisney! I cannot think of a more magical place for your daughter to celebrate her birthday than at Walt Disney World Resort. Don't forget to pick up a complimentary "Happy Birthday" button at any of the four theme parks so that Cast Members know that you are celebrating something truly special. There are so many amazing options available to enjoy birthday festivities outside of the theme parks. Here are just a few of my favorite ways to celebrate a special occasion. 

    If there is a favorite character our daughter is hoping to see during your adventure, I recommend checking out the current list of available Character Dining Options outside of the theme parks. This is a great way to get birthday hugs from your very best pals while enjoying a fabulous meal. You can even order a celebration cake for many of these locations. These adorable Mickey-shaped desserts can be added when you make your dining reservation and will be delivered right to your table. More Guest favorite locations are opening this fall, so be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as your reservation gets closer for all of the exciting details. 

    Should planning a special night out be on the top of your daughter's birthday list, consider dinner and a show. Drawn to Life Presented by Cirque du Soleil is a fantastic experience that will leave your entire Ohana memorized. This show is a must-see and will absolutely be a memorable evening. Following the show, you can enjoy a marvelous dinner at one of the many locations in Disney Springs. Have your daughter pick her favorite menu and don't forget dessert! You can order a specialty cake at many of these locations as well, or stop by Amorette's Patisserie for some unbelievably yummy options. 

    Now if your daughter prefers to be dazzled by fireworks rather than acrobatics, you can book a private Fireworks Cruise. This Enchanting Extra includes snacks, beverages, and birthday decorations, making it the perfect celebration setting. There are options for both Harmonious and Disney Enchantment, so the birthday girl can pick her favorite! You can also reserve a trip on the Ferrytale Dessert and Fireworks Cruise to view Magic Kingdom fireworks from a unique location. This enchanted sail includes specialty drinks and desserts themed to sparkles and shooting stars, making it a perfect fit to celebrate the big moment. 

    All of the above options can be booked 60 days prior to your arrival, so mark your calendar! And for a special surprise back at your resort, you can add to the celebration by placing an order through Disney Floral and Gifts. They offer a magical variety of celebrations baskets, balloons, flowers, and more that are sure to make your daughter smile on her special day. 

    I hope your daughter has the best birthday ever!
    We'll see ya real soon!
