    Treating my daughter with a trip to DW as an early 18th birthday present.Her BD is 3-1, but we decided to come in early Nov. to hopefully miss some of the holiday crowds.Will Disney still consider this a BD celebration?Do they do anything special for BDs?

    The saying at Walt Disney World is basically if you're celebrating, they're celebrating!  You can absolutely celebrate your daughter's birthday when you travel in November, and how you choose to celebrate it is mostly up to you!

    To start with, make sure when you plan your meals and book your room, you make a note on the reservations that you are celebrating this wonderful birthday!  While you never know when or where pixie dust may fall, you may find that your daughter is treated to a birthday dessert or a special card.  Also, don't forget to get a birthday button!  You can find them at guest services at any of the theme parks, and some of the resort desks will have them as well.

    If you want to plan your own special surprise, there are options too numerous to list at - you'll find everything from a grand birthday celebration themed after the Boss himself (Mickey Mouse), to a gift fit for a princess.

    I hope the birthday celebration is magical!  Have a wonderful vacation!
