    why do they ask you if you are celebrating a special occasion when making a reservation

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Barry ~

    Super question! Disney loves to celebrate special occasions with Guests. Sometime there is even a little extra sprinkling of pixie dust for celebrations.

    Guests celebrate all kinds of things at Disney including first visits, birthdays, anniversaries, getting married at Disney World, honeymoons, a family member returning from military service, or remission from an illness. Celebrations come in all forms and Disney World is the perfect place to celebrate.

    I was at Disney last year during my anniversary. When we checked into our resort, they gave us buttons to wear to show that we were celebrating. Cast Members congratulated us throughout our trip. Mickey and Minnie left a special "Happy Anniversary" card for us in our room. One day we had lunch at The Crystal Palace and there was a heart made of confetti waiting for us on our table. There were times we received a special dessert when dining. All of these little touches made our trip even more magical.

    While nothing is ever guaranteed, if you will be celebrating a special occasion during your visit, be sure to let the Cast Members know when you are making any resort or dining reservations. You never know what pixie dust will come your way.

    ​Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
