    We are visiting the parks for my sons 3rd birthday! Is there anything special for birthdays that we can do/buy/see? This will also be his first time at Disney!

    Hello again Carla!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Celebrating your son’s 3rd birthday with a first time trip to Disneyland is such an excellent idea! I love to celebrate special occasions at Disneyland because everyone joins the celebration with you! Get the party started at Guest Relations where you can request a complimentary birthday button for your son! Make sure to ask for a 1st Visit button too! Cast Members love to acknowledge guests's special occasions and the buttons let them know what you’re celebrating!

    My favorite way to celebrate is with a special meal! If you’d like to make a dining reservation, I suggest one of the Character Dining options at Disneyland Park or one of the Disneyland Resort hotels. All of these restaurants offer a tasty meal with some of your favorite Disney Pals. When you make a dining reservation on the Disneyland website or the Disneyland App, you'll have the option to add a birthday cake. Disney Dining can also book dining reservations including birthday cake requests. Simply call (714) 781-DINE (714-781-3463). If a special diet cake is required, an order for one can be placed by emailing with your request at least four weeks in advance of your dining reservation. 

    Lastly, make sure to take plenty of pictures to commemorate your trip! If you’ve added Disney MaxPass to your ticket, it includes unlimited downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos in addition to digital Disney FASTPASS selections. Ask a Disney PhotoPass Photographer to take photos of you and your son throughout the day. You can also request they take some Magic Shots. These fun photos add an extra bit of pixie dust to your picture! Disney PhotoPass Photographers are also always willing to snap a couple of pictures with your camera or mobile device as well. 

    Enjoy celebrating with your son at “The Happiest Place on Earth!” Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions!

Greetings from San Diego, CA! I'm a wife, cat mom and Disney-loving "childless millennial." I've traveled all around the world, but my favorite place to visit is "The Happiest Place on Earth!" I've been going to the Disneyland Resort for over 25 years. Each time I step through the turnstiles to enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy, I feel the magic of Walt Disney's original park. I can't wait to answer your questions and help you experience all that the Disneyland Resort has to offer! Learn More About Tiffanie
