    Hi, my son's birthday is in September and as a birthday gift, I planned our vacation for August to avoid disrupting his school schedule. So my question is, will it be too early to celebrate his birthday during our trip?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jasmin! Happy early birthday to your son!

    What a lucky boy he is to receive a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort for his birthday! My kids have been enjoying Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Disney Cruise Line since they were born, and have been thrilled beyond belief when we have gone to the parks to celebrate their birthday. Only once was it over an actual birthday, but all of the other times, Disney was happy to help us celebrate whenever we chose, so your son is in for a fabulous birthday treat!

    When you check into your Disney Resort, be sure to ask for a birthday button. They'll write his name on it too. Be sure he wears it every day of your trip, as the Cast Members and even other guests, will wish him a happy birthday all day long. He'll feel so special. Be sure to check out the extra special birthday celebration packages you can pre-order which will really make some magical memories on this occasion!

    I was just at Disneyland with my family and we wanted to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday a month early, since we wouldn't be with her over her actual birthday. We had a such a special day, and since she was wearing a birthday button with her name, Cast Members and guests alike were wishing her a happy birthday everywhere we went. One Cast Member even offered to pixie-dust her birthday button to make it more sparkly! She was so taken aback at first that so many people would care enough to take the time to say "Happy birthday", but by the end of the day, she was beaming from ear to ear that it was so magical to spend an early birthday at Disney! I'm sure your son will find even more magic in an early birthday celebration at the Place Where Dreams Come True too!

    Have fun planning this adventure, Jasmin!
