    We will be visiting disney this year in Nov. Just so happens that my birthday falls on one of the days we will be there. Are there any special/free things to take advantage of for this?

    Hi Talisa!

    I'm so happy you stopped by the Disney Parks Mom's Panel with your question. First of all, Happy Birthday! In my opinion, there is no better place for celebrations of any kind than Walt Disney World and birthdays are at the top of that list.

    The first order of business when you arrive is to stop by Guest Services and ask for a personalized Birthday Celebration Button. This is Disney's way of announcing to everyone around you that it is your special day. We just celebrated my 3-year old granddaughter's birthday at Walt Disney World and many Cast Members who saw her Birthday Celebration Button made a special point to wish her a Happy Birthday--one even brought her a tub of popcorn as special gift. It was so much fun! Another great way to celebrate is to take a minute before arriving to book Advanced Dining Reservations at your favorite spot. Be sure to tell the Cast Member at check-in that it is your birthday (like I said...Disney is ALL about celebrations!) Also, take a look at the Customize Your Special Occasion page of the Walt Disney World website. It will give you even more ideas about how to make this your most magical birthday ever.

    By the time you arrive in November, Walt Disney World should be decked out in all of its holiday finery. I can't think of a more perfect setting to soak up a big dose of holiday cheer combined with the excitement of your birthday celebration. It doesn't get much better than that!

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. We love to help however we can and hope to sprinkle your Walt Disney World visit with a little extra pixie dust. Have a wonderful day!
