    I have 4 year old twins that are going to WDW in April for their 5th birthday present. Although their birthday isn't til May will the CM's still make a big deal for them since it is their Birthday presents? I did let each CM know when making ressies.

    Celebrations at Walt Disney World are magical. Every day of the year, WDW knows how to make guests feel special. You should definitely celebrate your twins birthday while in the Happiest Place on Earth.

    The Cast Members will make a big deal of it (and won't even ask the official date). Turning 5 is a special occasion.

    You've done the right thing by having the birthday marked on your reservations. Remember to also mention it the podium when you check in to a restaurant and to your server. Also make a big deal of it when checking in to your resort. Have the birthday noted on your reservation and remind the Cast Member at Check In. Our son received balloons and an autographed picture from Mickey Mouse at the All Star Movies. This is not a guarantee but Cast Members try to sprinkle as much magic as they can.

    You can order a cake to enjoy at any restaurant by calling the Cake Hotline (yes there is such at thing at the Happiest Place on Earth) at 407-827-2253. Remember to give 48 hours advance notice.

    Stop in at Guest Services in City Hall at the Magic Kingdom and ask for birthday buttons.

    Best wishes!
