    My wife has birthday during our stay at WDW. Any possibility to arrange a surprise beforehand?

    Welcome to planDisney, Daniele! From experience, Walt Disney World is THE best place to celebrate a birthday!

    To start your wife's birthday celebration right, please pick up a birthday celebration button, available from the front desk at Disney Resort hotels, or a Cast Member at various retail locations in the parks. Cast Members are talented spotters and fantastic at acknowledging special celebrations - I can promise many warm birthday greetings and who knows what other extra magic! 

    You can arrange a birthday cake enhancement at participating table-service restaurants. So should your wife have a favourite character - like Donald Duck at Tusker House Restaurant in Animal Kingdom Park - or a particular dining experience in mind, please add this request when making your dining reservation. In-room birthday celebrations can be organized for your Walt Disney World Resort stay. Various hampers and balloons can be ordered, or you can call to see if further customization is possible. 

    A birthday surprise I would certainly welcome would be a treatment at the Grand Floridian Spa. The perfect antidote to a busy day in the Parks. You could toast the birthday festivities at the nearby Enchanted Rose. Its romantic ambience and delightful cocktails are fitting for a celebration! 

    No matter how you spend the day, Daniele, this birthday will be filled with magic at Walt Disney World. Please do pop back with any other questions.
