    My wife birthday falls on one of the days of our stay in March. We will travel more than 20 hrs across the globe for this first visit. I want to make this a very memorable birthday for her, with my 2 kids, age 2/5, without burning a hole in the pocket.

    Hi Joo!  What a wonderful birthday indeed for your wife to be able to celebrate it at Walt Disney World!  I am sure you are aware of the fact that she will be able to choose a park for free entry on her actual birthday this year.  Please register on line by going to the disney website, .

    There are many ways for you to help her celebrate.  From the complementary Happy Birthday button to fireworks cruises. Disney has a long list of ways to make her day even more special.  The best way for you to review these options is to click HERE and see what is available.  I would definitely make sure you have some dining reservations, 407-939-3463,  in place and order a special cake.  You can do that by calling the cake hotline at 407-827-2253.  You can also just mention to your server when you are seated that you would like a birthday cake as they will have small standard ones on hand too.

    Other fun ways for her to commemorate her day is to have her design her own Mickey ears, t-shirt or Disney pin!  Those are great items to take back home to share with all her family and friends!  Another popular idea for many families is to reserve a time to have a professional photographer take some portrait shots.  All of these ideas and many, many more are included in the link above.  have fun with the planning process!
