    Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to have a gender reveal here. If we can give the envelope to someone and be able to get the gender inside a cupcake? It will be a party of 5.

    Hello, Candelaria!

    Welcome to planDisney, I'm so happy to have you here! It sounds like congratulations are in order, how exciting to have a new Mouseketeer on the way! I would be thrilled to share some ideas for a magical gender reveal surprise.

    While you can order a celebration cake in advance for select Disneyland Resort dining locations, it's not possible to request custom flavors or writing. So that makes the cakes a delicious way to finish off a meal, but probably not a great option for your gender reveal. But don't worry! I have a few ideas to help you surprise your party!

    My first thought would be to go to The Mad Hatter shop in Fantasyland! You could choose the baby's first Mickey Ears and give your secret envelope to the Cast Member personalizing your hat so they could use pink or blue thread to embroider "It's a..." and then wrap it up for you to open with your party! It might be especially fun to open the hat while a Disney PhotoPass Photographer captures your reaction!

    You could also choose a beautiful ornament at Plaza Point on Main Street, U.S.A. and share the gender with the Cast Member who is hand painting ornaments so they can decorate your keepsake with the good news! Be sure to ask them to wrap it up without showing it to you, so you can open it at the perfect moment!

    I highly recommend that you purchase Disney Genie+ so that you can download all of your Disney PhotoPass pictures from your visit! It would be so fun to take some photos around Sleeping Beauty Castle to share your news with friends and family later. My very favorite photo spot is the Sword in the Stone in Fantasyland—we've taken photos of our children there on every trip! You could take a photo announcing the gender, then plan for a future photo in the same spot when the lucky baby is here! 

    Don't forget to ask for a complimentary celebration button at a Guest Services location! Cast Members will often personalize these, so everyone in your group could join in the fun of celebrating the news! And if you choose an item like a hat to personalize I would definitely recommend showing the hat to your favorite character so they can celebrate with you, too!

    Sending you all my pixie dust and congratulations, Candelaria! We hope to see you at the resort real soon!

    Keep moving forward!
