    Hello! We have a trip coming up in May and have dinner plans at California Grill to celebrate my Dad's 70th Birthday! Are we able to custom order a cake for our dinner?

    Hi Megan!
    Welcome back to planDisney.

    I am so excited to hear that you are celebrating your Dad's 70th Birthday at Walt Disney World, and I'm happy to help you plan the most magical birthday for him.  I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be to celebrate any birthday!

    Firstly, are you staying at a Disney Resort hotel?  Collect a Celebration Birthday Button from the Front Desk of your resort hotel, or from any Guest Relations at the theme parks – I would wear it every day of my holiday!  You never know, you might get some extra attention from Cast Members around the Resort! (not guaranteed!)

    California Grill is a beautiful restaurant at Walt Disney World, and is worthy of any special occasion.  I love the location - on the 15th floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort, high above Seven Seas Lagoon, with a view of Cinderella Castle by day, and - if you time it right - the Magic Kingdom fireworks by night.  It's so magical when they turn down the lights and pipe the music into the restaurant!  You can also choose to step outside on the deck for an even better view. 

    Mickey Mouse Celebration Cakes can be ordered for delivery to your table when you make your dining reservation. Don't forget to mention that you are celebrating your Dad's 70th birthday!

    If you would prefer something a little more fancy, Amorette’s Patisserie will take orders for gorgeous cakes.  These are available for you to collect from the store at Disney Springs, to take back to your hotel room.  

    If you are visiting Magic Kingdom Park on his birthday, or close to the date, how about a Capture Your Moment photo session to celebrate your special occasion?  I highly recommend this - you'll receive some stunning downloadable photos from a 20-minute session.  I can't think of a more magical keepsake for your entire family.  Other theme park locations are also available.   

    I hope I've given you some inspired ideas for your Dad's special birthday - please come back and visit us if you have any further questions - you can send me a direct follow-up question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation!
