    I will be staying at The All Star Music Resort when we head down for my and my kids first trip to Disney World my wife has been there before but stayed off resort in 2000 it's my Daughters 13th birthday 1/2 way through what will they do to make it special?

    Hi Brian!  Your question popped out at me as I also celebrated my daughter's 13th birthday at Walt Disney World last year!  Having the opportunity to celebrate at Disney was super special to us!  

    At minimum, you'll want to add a note to your resort/dining reservations indicating that you'll be celebrating this special birthday.  Your daughter should be presented with a birthday button at check-in to wear proudly throughout her day.  You will be amazed at how many people (cast members and other guests alike) will take a moment out of their day to say happy birthday.  And you never know when other small surprises will pop up such as a special dessert at a dining reservation.  Your daughter will feel like a million bucks!

    A couple other things I did for my daughter that you might want to consider.  First, I purchased some "birthday ears" for her to wear.  I also made a special dining reservation at Garden Grill (because she adores Chip and Dale) and arranged for the Cake Hotline (407-827-CAKE) to deliver a cake decorated with her favorite characters so that we could enjoy that for dessert.  A cast member surprised us by singing a special song to my daughter for her birthday.  Priceless!   I also arranged with to make a special delivery to our room while we were out so my daughter could have a surprise waiting for her upon our return.

    As you can imagine, the possibilities are endless!  If you need more ideas, please write back and tell us what your daughter enjoys in her Disney life.  I'm sure we can come up with some more ideas for you!

    I hope your daughter's birthday is truly magical.  Diane
