    I am taking my son for his 8th birthday. I want to know what more I can do. I know to get the button. in room celebration all done, restaurants that it is his b-day. The one thing i could not get him is a room at the artist, I want to but it cost to much.

    It sounds like you have a of of wonderful experiences already arrange for your special guys birthday! The birthday button is complimentary and he will love to have Cast Members greet him with "Happy Birthday" all day! Make sure to note that you are celebrating his birthday on the Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR). There is no guarantee, but several locations will bring out a special little something to celebrate the birthday guests special occasion.

    The In-Room Celebrations are amazing! He will be so surprised to walk in the room and see that Mickey visited and celebrated his special occasion!

    You can also book a speciality fireworks cruise to celebrate his special day. The speciality cruises, such as the Pirates and Pals Voyage, take kids across the water for a special viewing of Wishes while snacking on yummy treats and donning a pirate patch. You can make reservations 180 days in advance. 

    You could also bring your little guy to Downtown Disney to the Lego Store or Build a Potato Bar to make and buy his own birthday present! That would be a fun experience to always remember. 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
