    My sister and I are surprising my 6 year old niece with a trip to Disney World in Florida for her 7th birthday in July. Any ideas on how to make the stay extra special since there will probably still be restrictions due to Covid?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jennifer! 

    Thank you for stopping by with a great question! I would love to see your niece’s face light up as she finds out she is going to visit Mickey! What a magical birthday surprise!

    I love planning celebrations at the Walt Disney World Resort, so let’s get started! Are you staying at a Disney Resort hotel? Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can surprise a loved one with an in-room celebration! Disney Floral & Gifts can help you create memories you will cherish forever with a gorgeous gift or celebration basket. Contact a Dream Maker Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST by calling (407) 939-4438 and they will be glad to assist you!

    Have you also considered purchasing a special MagicBand in advance for your niece? My baby daughter will be visiting for the first time this year and I have already purchased a First Visit MagicBand. Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel are welcome to purchase MagicBands at pre-arrival prices, and I noticed that birthday MagicBands are sometimes available. To order a MagicBand at pre-arrival prices, sign in to your Disney account and visit My MagicBands and Cards, or visit if you are staying off-site. Another great idea is ordering a Mickey Mouse Celebration Specialty Cake. Cakes can be arranged for Guests with reservations at participating table-service restaurants and can feed 4 to 6 people. The cakes are so cute and delicious, and I just love how you can have a special message of “Happy Birthday” on the chocolate ears. To add extra pixie dust to your niece’s celebration, stop by any Guest Relations or Front Desk location to request a complimentary "Happy Birthday" button. This is a great way to let everybody know you are celebrating! 
    planDisney tip: How about celebrating your niece with a photo session at Magic Kingdom Park? With Capture Your Moment you can reserve a personalized 20-minute session with a Disney PhotoPass photographer and get everyone in the picture to make unforgettable memories! 

    It was a pleasure answering your question, Jennifer! I hope your little princess has a perfect birthday celebration at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Best Disney wishes,
