    It is my wife's birthday during our upcoming stay in disneyland, I want to get her a button for her birthday and inform the restaurant of this event prior to our arrival. how do i do this thanks

    Hi again, William, and welcome back to planDisney! I’m excited to help you with another question!

    Your wife is going to be thrilled with her super-special birthday celebration at the Happiest Place on Earth! From her stay at the luxurious Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, to a fabulous birthday meal, birthdays don’t get any better than at the Disneyland Resort! First off, you’ll want to make sure you book your dining reservation soon, since reservations fill up quickly. I took a look at the reservations currently available for March 28, 2022, and I still see some great options. 

    As you’re booking your dining reservation, first you’ll be asked if you’d like to add a Mickey Celebration Cake to your meal. Currently, dining locations aren't offering complimentary birthday desserts, so the Mickey Celebration Cake is a great option to still add some birthday magic to your meal! You’ll have the option of selecting White Chocolate or Dark Chocolate, and adding an optional “Happy Birthday” message, too. You won’t be charged for the cake until you receive your final bill at the dining location. Personally, I love the Dark Chocolate cake since it’s rich and decadent!  Since I don't see a spot to note her birthday in the online reservation process, I recommend visiting the host stand upon arrival to make sure your server knows about the special occasion you're celebrating and to confirm your cake order, if you decide to purchase one.

    Also, have you thought about treating your wife to a special birthday treatment at Tenaya Stone Spa? This beautiful, brand-new spa is conveniently located in your hotel, the Grand Californian. This nature-inspired spa offers a tranquil, peaceful setting perfect for ultimate relaxation. The Tenaya River Stone Massage sounds divine!

    Last but not least, be sure to pick up your wife’s complimentary birthday button from the front desk of your hotel, or from City Hall in Disneyland Park, or Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park. You can also ask for buttons for the rest of your group, too, to share in her celebration!

    I can’t wait for your Disneyland Resort adventures to begin soon, William! Please stop by with any additional questions you may have… we’re all EARs!

    Happy planning!
