    We have stayed at the contemporary club level several times and are planing on staying this upcoming September for my 40th birthday. Do the resorts typically do room grades? Just curious since we are frequent travelers. Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Liz!

    Let me be the first to wish you a very happy birthday this coming September. I celebrated my 40th at Walt Disney World Resort last year, and it was truly such a magical day. I can’t think of any place I’d rather celebrate!
    Disney’s Contemporary Resort is a fantastic choice – that’s where I celebrated my birthday in classic Disney style – and a Club-Level stay will add luxury to your big day. I love the way you think! 

    Room upgrades are, in my experience, fairly rare at Walt Disney World. It’s always worth politely asking about any available upgrades when you check in, but be prepared that none may be available, or available upgrades may come with an additional cost. I encourage you to be sure to add a note that it's your birthday to your resort room reservation by calling (407) 939-1936, and call (407) WDW-DINE to add a note about your birthday celebration to any dining reservations. When you check in, be sure to let the Club-Level concierge know you’re celebrating a birthday as well. Disney Cast Members want to sprinkle pixie dust on Guests, and they will where they can, but remember that many Guests visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth are celebrating, too!

    I experienced a couple of special birthday surprises at Walt Disney World restaurants last year, so be sure to wear your birthday button (pick one up from your resort hotel or at Guest Relations) and mention that you’re celebrating. There are also some great in-room celebrations available from Disney Floral & Gifts, and you can even order a celebration cake to your room or to a Table-Service restaurant. If you really want to go all out, check out the Enchanting Extras Collection – I think a birthday fireworks cruise sounds practically perfect in every way!

    Lisa, I hope your birthday is so, so magical! If we can answer any questions as you plan your magnificent milestone birthday, please come back and see us so we can help you reach out and find your happily ever after.

    Wishing you the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER,
