    Hi Olivia! 

    How exciting that you are bringing your son to the most magical place on earth for his birthday! I have a few tips for you that will make your trip absolutely magical! 

    When you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, make sure to ask for a complimentary Happy Birthday button! A Cast Member will write your son's name on the button and he will enjoy hearing "Happy Birthday" greetings all day long! 

    If you haven't yet booked your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or Park Tickets, I recommend checking out the Special Offers page to see if there are any applicable packages. You can't go wrong with any of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, but I highly recommend either Disney's Art of Animation or Disney's All-Star Movies Resort for your son. Both of these resorts are heavily character-themed, which kids love! They also both have amazing pools, a fun arcade, and a food court with a variety of options.

    I also recommend making an advanced dining reservation. Make sure to note on the reservation that you are celebrating your son's birthday. While not guaranteed, in the past, when I have noted a birthday on my reservation, we have been surprised with a small treat at the end of the meal. You can also order a cake to be delivered to the restaurant by calling 407-827-2253 at least 72 hours in advance. Check out the Disney Cakes page for more information on where you can have a cake delivered. 

    Disney Floral & Gifts can also deliver a birthday basket, balloons, or special goodies to the room! There are several options for birthday gifts, but my personal favorite is the Ears to You Spider-Man basket!  

    Of course, you will want to decide which park to visit on his birthday and make your theme park reservation in advance after you buy your tickets. Chose the park based on his favorite activities or attractions. I personally think you can't go wrong with Disney's Magic Kingdom! Your son will love all of the fun attractions, food, and experiences there!

    Please wish your son a happy birthday from planDisney! And let us know if we can help you with anything else!
