    What can I do to make my wife's birthday special at Disneyland?

    Hello again, Mike! 

    Thanks for coming back to planDisney with another question! 

    Celebrating your wife’s birthday with a trip to the Disneyland Resort?! How magical! Disneyland and birthdays go together like Mickey-shaped pretzels and mustard! You can have one without the other, but they're better together! 

    Here are a few suggestions to make her birthday extra special! First, stop by Guest Relations for a complimentary birthday button! Cast Members love to join the celebration by wishing Guests a Happy Birthday! Feel free to ask for an “I’m Celebrating” button for yourself! You’re celebrating with her, right? 

    If you’d like to make a special dining reservation, I suggest brunch at Lamplight Lounge in Disney California Adventure Park or lunch at Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland Park. Both restaurants feature unique decor and a lovely view of the water. Make your dining reservation on the Disneyland website or the Disneyland Mobile App up to 60 days in advance. 

    Does your wife like relaxation? Why not book her a spa treatment at Tenaya Stone Spa at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa?! I love scheduling a pedicure at the salon. But they also offer massages, facials and more. Next, it’s time to head out for a fancy celebratory dinner right next door at Napa Rose. Don’t forget to order the housemade focaccia to start. It comes with a trio of dipping sauces and is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. For an extra special treat, book the chef’s table experience! Check out this answer from my friend and fellow panelist, Tishra B, for more information on how to book this experience.

    Lastly, make sure to take plenty of pictures to commemorate your trip! If you purchase Disney Genie+, you'll enjoy unlimited downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos including those fun photos taken on attractions! Also, make sure to take advantage of the Disney PhotoPass Photographers! They are always willing to capture special images for you! For an extra special surprise, request a Magic Shot! You never know which character will make an appearance in your picture! 

    I hope your wife has a wonderful birthday and an unforgettable visit to “The Happiest Place on Earth!”

Greetings from San Diego, CA! I'm a wife, cat mom and Disney-loving "childfree millennial." I've traveled all around the world, but my favorite place to visit is "The Happiest Place on Earth!" I've been going to the Disneyland Resort for over 25 years. Each time I step through the turnstiles to enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy, I feel the magic of Walt Disney's original park. I can't wait to answer your questions and help you experience all that the Disneyland Resort has to offer! Learn More About Tiffanie
