    We are visiting WDW the end of March. First trip for my husband and son. My son will be celebrating his golden birthday (11 on March 11) so he won't be in WDW on his actual birthday. Can he still get the same birthday treatment I hear so much about?

    Your son is welcome to pick up a birthday button from Guest Services, Heidi; they won't be checking for birth certificates!  Wearing that, he'll likely experience many a birthday wish from Cast Members all the day long.  My suggestion to you would be to choose one day during your vacation and consider that his honorary birthday.  On that day, you should schedule any special meals you'd like to enjoy to help celebrate his special day.  Feel free to note on your restaurant reservation that you are indeed celebrating a birthday and you might be treated to a little birthday magic. 

    The only exception I can think of off the top of my head is that at the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue, they specifically ask that only guests celebrating their actual birthdays are recognized during the show.  Other than that, feel free to celebrate your son's very merry unbirthday during your trip!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
