Here are some tips for celebrating your birthday at Disney World. Some of the ideas are free and some of the ideas are more pricey! Enjoy your birthday at the most magical place on Earth!
Tips for Celebrating Your Birthday at Disney World
Make sure that as soon as you enter the park, you grab your free I’m Celebrating Birthday Button. It lets everyone around you know that you are celebrating a birthday. Cast Members and guests will wish you a happy birthday all day long. Sometimes having the button can glean some extra attention from characters and cast members as well, though it is not guaranteed. In the past, I have gotten extra pins and/or an extra trade while pin trading, a rose at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, special lei at the Polynesian.
Note on your Dining Reservations that you are celebrating your Birthday! Each place has their own special way of making your meal better, though it is not guaranteed. Also, remind the server once you get seated. Sometimes the information on the reservation doesn’t always get conveyed. I loved the birthday plate I had gotten at Boma.
Buy a Happy Birthday Ear Hat. These hats are super cute! The special ear hat can be found at The Chapeau at Magic Kingdom Park as well as other merchandise locations throughout the resort.
Spring for a Disney Made In Room Celebration Package. They have packages and gift baskets for almost any budget. Check out the Disney Floral and Gifts website for more information.
Make your own Celebration Package. Save money by getting your loved ones a gift basket from home. Hide it in your luggage and say Tinker Bell delivered it. Items can be bought at home at the Dollar Tree, Target, and even the Disney Store to make a perfect celebration a royal one.
Set up a Surprise Birthday Phone call. Tell the front desk Cast Member that you or someone in your party are celebrating a birthday, and ask them to set up a special birthday phone call from a Disney Character. BTW, this is totally FREE.
Book a Spa Day. Nothing makes me feel more like a princess than a day of pampering. Disney has a couple different spa options and you can get massages, pedicures, manicures, facials and more. Little ones may enjoy the Bippity Boppity Boutique or the Pirate’s League. If you are looking for a more frugal pampering treatment get your hair cut at the Harmony Barbershop, they can even give you Pixie Dust!
