    Hi, we're visiting this October and my little boy will turn 2 while we are there. What do you recommend we do for his birthday at the Park? Thanks!

    Hi Sian:

    There is no better place to celebrate a birthday or plan a special vacation than at Walt Disney World.  The first thing to do is pick up a birthday button at City Hall at Magic Kingdom or at Guest Relations at the other parks.  Many Cast Members will go out of their way to greet your son with special attention to make the day more memorable.  Here are some more ideas to make the visit extra special:

    • Arrange a special character meal, like at Chef Mickeys, where your son can meet his favorite characters in a party atmosphere. 
    • If you are staying on property, let the Cast Members know at check-in that it's your son's birthday. It's possible the front desk may be able to help arrange some Disney magic.
    • Contact the Dream Makers at Disney Floral and Gifts at (407) WDW-GIFT or (407) 939-4438. If you are staying on property, they can help create a personalized in-room celebration.  
    • If you are interested, many Disney restaurants carry a "Celebrate Today" cake in chocolate or vanilla that can serve up to five.  Simply order the cake when you check in at the restaurant front podium.  Prices are subject to change, but the cake generally costs about $21.00.  If you would like to order a larger customized cake, call the cake hotline in advance at 407-827-2253.  Prices will vary depending on size and customization.
    • Buy your son a balloon on Main Street

    Enjoy your vacation.
