    I was wanting some help in planning a trip to Disneyland. It will be my 30th birthday next year and wanted to do something big.

    Hi there, Garrett!

    It’s my pleasure to welcome you to planDisney! What a wonderful dream you have of celebrating your milestone birthday at the Disneyland Resort! I can tell you from personal experience that every birthday (and even unbirthday) I've spent at The Happiest Place On Earth has been absolutely unforgettable. Now, let's work together to make your wish come true!

    Let's start by getting you a complimentary celebration button! You can grab one at Guest Relations locations like City Hall or even at merchandise locations like the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A., right when you enter the Disneyland Park. And to stay one jump ahead of the crowds all day, adding Disney Genie+ is a fantastic idea. It's like having your own personal magic carpet to whisk you away to the front of the line to some of the most popular attractions! Trust me, it's a total game-changer.

    Now Garrett, there's a fabulously fanciful experience to make your day even more spectacular that I must share with you: go for a VIP tour. With a guide to accompany you, you and your group can gain access to some of the most sought-after attractions, such as the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean

    My favorite thing to do at the resort for special occasions is to book a character dining experience, like The Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park or, my favorite, the Storytellers Café, located in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. You can dine with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy while remembering to bring your appetite and your camera to capture all the magical moments. It's an enchanting way to start your day, filled with laughter, hugs, and cherished memories that will bring a smile to your face long after breakfast is over.

    If you want to keep the party going, book a room at one of the resort hotels and create memories that will last a lifetime. With a range of room types and private spaces, you can host your own celebration, complete with decorations, treats, and gifts for your birthday. Wake up to a magical view of Disney California Adventure Park or enjoy the shining, shimmering, splendid pools at the Disneyland Hotel with your party guests.

    Well, Garrett, I wish you the most marvelous of birthdays and a truly unforgettable time at The Happiest Place on Earth! So until next time, cheers to the madness and magic that awaits at the Disneyland resort!

    A Very Merry Unbirthday To You,
