    My son will be 7 two days before we arrive in WDW. Do they offer anything to help make his birthday more special? If so, who do I need to contact?

    Stop in at Guest Services in City Hall at the Magic Kingdom and ask for a birthday button.

    Tell your hostess and server at every place that you dine that your daughter is celebrating her birthday. Magical things will often happen. For instance, Chef Mickey’s brings a complimentary cupcake although personalized cakes can be ordered at an additional fee. You can order personalized cakes for most restaurants by calling 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463) and asking to be transferred to the specific restaurant to discuss your celebration.

    If you are staying at a WDW resort, call the operator and ask for the birthday message. You might hear a Goofy birthday wish. Have the birthday noted on your reservation and remind the Cast Member at Check In. Our son received balloons and an autographed picture from Mickey Mouse at the All Star Movies. This is not a guarantee but Cast Members try to sprinkle as much magic as they can.

    Get an autograph book and have the characters sign birthday messages. If you are touring Epcot, visit the KidCot stations in World Showcase and get Happy Birthday written in all different languages. Ask the Cast Member how to say Happy Birthday in their language. I hope your son has a fabulous birthday!
