    We will be in WDW shortly. We are hoping to celebrate our son’s birthday with a special dinner at Boma. Do you know if they are currently doing the birthday serenades with the drums, and if so, how would I go about arranging this special surprise for him

    Hi Jennifer! We're so happy to have you visiting planDisney again!

    Walt Disney World Resort always has the ability to make Guests feel special but celebrating a birthday while visiting adds an extra dose of pixie dust.  If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel stop by the front desk for a "Happy Birthday" button for your son! You can also pick up a button at any Guest Relations desk.  The birthday boy can wear his button throughout your trip so that everyone knows he's celebrating! 

    While I know you have your heart set on a special drum serenade at Boma - Flavors of Africa, at the moment not all musicians are currently performing because of COVID protocols and social distancing measures.  Since it sounds like you've enjoyed the restaurant previously, I hope you're still able to celebrate with a delicious meal!  If you still want to keep this birthday dinner as part of your plans, make sure to check with the host at the podium when you arrive, just in case the musician Cast Members have returned in time for your celebration!  

    Please pass on an early "Happy Birthday" to your son from all of us here at planDisney, and come visit us again soon!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
