    I want to make this visit special. We will be at the park for my wife's 50th birthday in October, The park's 50th birthday! Any suggestions for the magical "extras"?

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for dropping by planDisney! What a wonderful way to celebrate your wife's birthday!

    First, let's make sure we have the basics. It sounds like you already have a vacation package booked. I trust that you linked that package in your My Disney Experience account and made Disney Park Pass system reservations. If you have not done so already, make your advanced dining reservation plans so that you are ready to book those reservations when your dining reservation window opens. Currently, that reservation window is 60-days prior to arrival.

    Take a look at the Enchanting Extras Collection currently being offered and review those offerings periodically prior to your trip since additional experiences may reopen. Since this is such a special birthday, I highly recommend doing a Capture Your Moment - Magic Kingdom session. I also suggest getting Memory Maker to make sure you have access to all of your digital PhotoPass photos. 

    If you want a special in-room surprise, contact one of the Dream Makers at Disney Floral & Gifts. I have to say that we always celebrate special occasions with dinner during the Magic Kingdom fireworks at California Grill. The views of Magic Kingdom are superb!

    Mark, we just celebrated my husband's birthday in July at Walt Disney World. Our girls made sure to pick up celebratory buttons that we all had to wear. Every time a Cast Member said Happy Birthday they beamed from ear to ear while my husband thanked everyone for the well wishes. So, remember to pick up a few buttons when you get to your resort hotel!

    Magic and memories,
