    We will be vacationing in June and will be at Disney World for my daughter's 8th birthday. What special things should we plan for her? We are not lodging at the park but will have 5 day hopper passes. Any suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks for the help

    Hi, Debra!   We need to make sure your Princess has a Royal 8th Birthday!   If you are going to be in Disney on your daughter's actual birthday, register HERE for a free admission ticket on her special day.    

    Even if you will not be in the parks on her actual birthday, you still need to celebrate in grand style!   Stop by Guest Services to pick up your free "Happy Birthday" button so everyone around the parks can extend their happy wishes.   Also, if you are doing a table service meal, let the cast members know you are there for a celebration, they will sometimes bring a a special sweet treat.   There are also cakes and decorations you can purchase at most table service restaurants, just inquire at the podium when checking in.  

    Celebrate along with all the park guests at Magic Kingdom's Move It!  Shake It!  Celebrate It!  Street Party.  Here, you can sing and dance along with all your Disney Pals!

    My kids like to stop for ice cream on Main Street on their birthdays.   I personally like a stop at the Main Street Bakery for a huge Cinnamon Roll when I am there celebrating!   Find a special treat that will make her day!

    How about making her Princess for the Day?  Give her a tiara to wear, and let her choose all the rides for the day?  Or what if you brought a birthday card and have the characters sign that instead of an autograph book?   It would be a great way to remember her very special 8th Birthday in Disney.    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
