    We are visiting WDW for the 4th time Aug 23rd for 2 weeks.during our stay my son will celebrate his 15th birthday. I wondered if you have any suggestions as to how we can make his day more special. We also have 2 other children, boy 18 and girl 10

    Hi Sarah,

    While the weather will be hot during your trip, you've chosen an excellent time to visit Walt Disney World. Your travel dates will cooincide with some of the lowest crowd times at the parks. What an excellent way to honor your son's birthday.

    One of the easiest things you can do is get him a free "Birthday" button at any guest services office in the parks. (These may also be available from your hotel front desk.) This will alert cast members and other guests that your son is celebrating. There's nothing guaranteed, but sometimes he'll receive small perks.

    A great way to honor your son would be to get him a special gift from the Disney Floral and Gift Basket Department. They have wonderful gifts of food and souvenirs at all price points that could be placed in your room as a surprise.

    Another fun idea is to surprise him with a cake at one of your table service meals. You can arrange this via the Cake Hotline at 407-827-2253. (I know, a cake hotline, how cool is that!)

    For more tips on celebrating, you may want to head over to the independent website and search there for an article called "Trip Planning 101: Celebrating at Walt Disney World."

    I hope you all have a magical vacation!
