    Our 20 year old son wants to celebrate his 21st at Epcot (with us, for his college spring break!) Question; does Epcot have a "passport" for experiencing all the countries or anything "special" for a 21 Birthday celebration.

    Hi Diana! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    How exciting to be celebrating such a great milestone birthday with your son! You may have heard of the infamous, yet “unofficial” “Drinking Around the World” activity at Epcot in which some Guests like to partake. This involves selecting a drink (or alternatively, a snack) from each pavilion throughout World Showcase. I have seen Guests ask the server to sign self-made shirts or even homemade “passports”, but to my knowledge, there is nothing official unless you plan on attending the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival in the Fall. There is also Disney Design-a-Tee at Disney Springs where you can have special matching shirts made to celebrate your son’s birthday! If you do decide to “drink around the world”, remember to drink responsibly and maybe even divide up the countries into a few different days.

    Also, don’t forget to pick-up a birthday celebration button from Guest Services, and ensure that your reservation is noted with a celebration by calling Disney Reservations. If your plans include a special birthday dinner, remember that you can make Advanced Dining Reservations up to 180 days in advance!

    Hope your son has the most magical birthday yet!
