    Any tips on how to get special “pixie dust” experiences? Heading for a five night stay to celebrate my son’s birthday and looking to try and get any information I can on making it more special. Any advice or help you can provide is appreciated.

    Hi Gregory! It looks like you and your son are in the midst of enjoying your magical vacation at Walt Disney World Resort! I'm so happy for you!! I wish him a very Happy Birthday!!!!!

    I have three suggestions. The first is to stop by your Resort hotel front desk or any Guest Relations desk and ask for a celebration button. You will find everything from birthday buttons, to first visit, to anniversary, and more. Once you have the button for your son, have him wear it as often as possible. Cast Members throughout Walt Disney World Resort will wish him a, "Happy Birthday!" When possible, they might add some pixie-dust as well.

    Also, be sure to tell basically every Cast Member it's his birthday. In particular, be sure to tell your Resort hotel, restaurants, Disney Characters, etc. Whenever possible, the Cast Members or Disney Characters will add special magic to his day.

    My third and favorite suggestion is for you to check out all of the amazing options found at Disney Floral and Gifts! I have received multiple gifts from Disney Floral and Gifts and it was always a highlight of my vacation. The baskets and other items are over the top amazing and you can tell the Cast Members tasked with putting the items together truly love their jobs as everything always looks so incredible!

    I'm so excited your son is celebrating his birthday with you at Walt Disney World Resort!! What a special treat!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with me! Have a magical vacation celebrating your son!!!
