    Hi we wanted to do our gender reveal while the fireworks is on going for magic kingdom or maybe afternoon time. But we don't know if colored poppers or the colored smoke signal is allowed. If anything what can you suggest as an alternative?

    Hi there, Aldrian!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    First of all, let me congratulate you on the new addition to your family!  I cannot think of a better way to celebrate having a little Mouseketeer on the way than with a visit to Walt Disney World Resort.  I think it's a wonderful idea to have your gender reveal at The Most Magical Place on Earth, and I'm sure this will be a memory you'll treasure forever!  Unfortunately, all types of explosives and smoke machines are prohibited on Walt Disney World Resort property.  However, I have some great alternative ideas for your "Make it blue! Make it pink!" moment. 

    I recommend stopping by a Guest Relations location to pick up a complimentary "I'm celebrating!" button.  You could ask a Cast Member to write your baby's gender on the button and then hide it in a bag until you're ready for the big reveal.  The Guest Relations Cast Members can write the gender on your button using a marker.  Or if you want something a bit fancier, the Cast Members at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Magic Kingdom Park can do a more artistic personalization on your button for a small fee.

    Another option for your gender reveal would be to visit a souvenir shop such as the Emporium.  You could pick out one pink and one blue baby outfit or a set of Mickey and Minnie plush toys.  If you let the Cast Member at the register in on your secret while checking out, they can ring up the correct item for you and bag it up without you seeing it.

    Once you have your celebration button or souvenir item, you can decide where you'd like your gender reveal to take place.  If you'd like to visit Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater, I'm sure he and the Cast Members hanging out with him would love to help you make your baby's gender announcement.

    No matter where you decide to do your gender reveal, I would recommend asking a Disney PhotoPass photographer to help you capture this magical moment.  You had mentioned wanting your gender reveal to take place during the fireworks, however, I might suggest doing the reveal prior to the fireworks show.  The Disney PhotoPass photographers don't typically take pictures while the fireworks are happening, and the dimmed lighting in the park might make taking those pictures difficult.  Watching Happily Ever After as a follow-up to your gender reveal sounds practically perfect in every way!

    I hope these ideas are helpful as you plan for such a momentous occasion!  If you'll be returning to Walt Disney World Resort after your baby's arrival, be sure to check out all of our informative planDisney videos on visiting the parks with little ones.  Wishing you and your growing family all the best!
