    I am surprising my mom by taking her to Walt Disney World for her 70th Birthday. I have made dining reservations, but in the past with my kids, we were able to let them know we were celebrating something special. Can I still do that? If so, how?

    Hello Margaret!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a fantastic question! Congratulations on your mom! I am so excited for you, can you believe how happy she will be with this surprise birthday trip?

    There is no better place on earth to commemorate a loved loved one! My husband and I have recently celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Walt Disney World Resort, and I made sure to call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 and ask Cast Members to note our celebration on our dining reservations. In addition, always confirm with Cast Members upon arriving at your dining location that you are celebrating a birthday. You never know what type of magic can happen! We were surprised with complimentary desserts, cupcakes, chocolate, and at Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria the amazing Italian Cast Members even serenaded us! It was an unforgettable celebration.

    Moms Panel tip: don’t forget to request a complimentary celebratory birthday button for your mom upon arrival. Just ask any Cast Member at your Disney Resort hotel or at any theme park and Disney Springs, and they will be happy to provide one for her.

    I hope this helps you while planning and that your mother has an incredible birthday celebration.

    Best magical wishes,
