    Traveling to Epcot on 12/12/21. I would like to know what special events are happening that day or to make my experience better for my birthday celebration.

    Happy birthday, Steve!

    I am thrilled to hEAR you’ll be celebrating your special day at my very favorite theme park, EPCOT! Of course, the first thing you’ll want to do is grab a celebratory birthday button from Guest Relations! It’s so special to hear Cast Members and Guests wish you a happy birthday all day long! 

    What better way to celebrate your birthday than to satisfy your sweet and savory cravings? Currently, with EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays going on, and you can celebrate the day with wondrous sights and flavors by trying seasonal recipes from around the globe at the Holiday Kitchens. Speaking of the World Showcase, you can travel around in 11 different countries there, and each pavilion has such unique details, so do be sure to walk through and explore! I love shopping for unique souvenirs from around the world, and since it’s your birthday, you should most certainly treat yourself to a delightful birthday present!

    You may want to consider the Dining Packages at EPCOT, where you and your Guests can enjoy a delicious dining experience with incredible views of fireworks without the wait! The Spice Road Table Fireworks Dining Package, my personal favorite, brings you delicious Mediterranean flavors, while the Rose & Crown Fireworks Dining Package serves delectable British favorites! And if you want to treat yourself, another option is to add a private fireworks cruise to watch Harmonious at EPCOT. The Specialty Cruises are as spectacular as the view. Your party will watch the skies light up near the World Showcase lagoon over EPCOT, with assorted snacks and soft drinks provided. 

    From eating and drinking around the world to eating some more! Whether your dream is to dine with your favorite pals at Garden Grill Restaurant or in outer space at Space 220, there are so many incredible dining spots to make your day memorable. And now, you’ll find the Space 220 Lounge is also taking reservations, so keep checking to see availability. And whichever restaurant you dine at, please let the Cast Member serving you know it’s your special day! 

    End the night by viewing the Beacons of Magic show at Spaceship Earth. Watch EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth light up and dazzle us all as stardust emerges to music playing. This is genuinely my favorite addition in all the parks and one worth watching. This show is available nightly in intervals, so you’re sure to catch it without waiting too long!

    I hope you have an enchanting birthday, Steve!
