Disney Birthday

Celebrating your birthday while at Disney? Now that is beyond exciting news, and soon you will know why! Disney World is one of those places that will turn your birthday around and make it even more special than it already is! Check out how in five easy steps you could create an unforgettable and once in a lifetime birthday whether for adults or a child. Let’s get those steps rolling!

Step 1: It All Begins with a Birthday Button!

If someone within the family, the especially little one is having a birthday at Disney World, then get prepared to get really excited! But first things first, and we all must start with important details that are not to be missed. It is really important that you get a celebration button at Walt Disney World that will proclaim that it’s your birthday.

The even better news is that it is a completely free and personalized souvenir that when noticed, cast members throughout theme parks will wish you a “happy birthday” when they spot you!

Step 2: Make It More Special with Your Hotel

When you make your Disney hotel reservation, don’t be shy to tell them that you’re celebrating a birthday with reminding them at the check-in as well.

This will allow for the birthday person to receive extra and lovely treatment in the form of celebrity-level attention, confetti, a cupcake, personalized note or even a signed card from Mickey Mouse and more!

Imagine walking into your room for the first time just for your child to see that the celebration is already on the way in full force! And that comes with perks of staying on-site at one of Disney’s hotels. You can easily set up a surprise waiting for your little one! Disney offers a large variety of gift baskets and birthday packages that can wait for all prepared in your room before you even arrive, serving as a fantastic bonus from the very beginning.

And let’s not forget adults as various birthday packages are also available to them.

Step 3: The Classic Disney Birthday Cake

Birthday cakes are the most anticipated and iconic part of any birthday anywhere and Disney is no exception. Discover the Mickey ears-shaped cake available in white chocolate or milk chocolate, these special celebration cakes serve 4 to 6 people and include a “Happy Birthday” message written on one of the ears.

But that’s definitely not all! This cake can be enjoyed at any table service restaurant at Disney World or even your room.

Step 4: The Birthday Wear & Gear!

Keep those birthday vibes going strong by adding complimentary birthday wear to your birthday button you picked up at Guest Relations once at the park.

Anything from temporary tattoos at Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach to lovely and cute extra buttons like “I’m Celebrating” or Birthday Mickey Mouse Ear Hat available in each Disney park stores where you can find Mickey Mouse Ear Hats will do the job!

Step 5: Explore & Be Creative

To spice up your birthday, even more, Disney World has an arsenal of choices and all you have to do is be a creative and explore!

Whether it’s the Disney Perfectly Princess Tea Party with a strong dash of royalty, Disney’s Pirate Adventure where kids will sail on a fantastic journey or simply booking quality activities such as carriage ride, private cruise or even a rejuvenating SPA, Disney has it all to deliver memories that will last a lifetime.

And that’s only a tip of an iceberg of how you can make your birthday much more special and awesome with the help of one and only Disney World.
