INTERCOTee Disney Birthday Feedback
"We usually always celebrate my youngest son's birthday in Disney World.
Make sure you go to City Hall in the Magic Kingdom to get a "Today is my
Birthday" button to wear. This will bring a lot of attention throughout the
day. My son was serenaded by a brass band on Main Street, when they noticed
his button. The CM's will go out of their way to make guests feel special
when they see the button.
I try to make the day extra special as well. I let it be his to plan. I also
have goodies delivered to the resort while we are out. This year I made
arrangements through WDW Florist and had a gift basket and a balloon bouquet
sent to our room. His excitement was beyond words. He was so surprised
Mickey knew. The birthday possibilities are endless."
"We celebrated my sons birthday a few years back at Magic Kingdom. We had a
PS for Liberty Tree Tavern and I remember when we walked in the table was
littered with multicolor confetti in the shape of Mickey's head. How cool!!
It was an all you can eat but it was brought to your table. It was also a
character dinner and they made the evening really special for everyone
there. If you do a PS on the b'day, just let them know at the podium and
they will indeed do something special."
"My son celebrated his 7th and 9th birthdays at WDW. Both times I went to a
screen printing/embroidery store and purchased a red t-shirt and had them
put white lettering on it. The letters said "11-9-99 Today is my birthday
..." on the front of the shirt and "...and I spent it in Disney World" on
the back. It cost about $20 but it was worth it. He got so many comments and
congratulations from both guests and cast members. He had cast members sing
Happy Birthday and received a mug from Heather at Mouse Gear. I have never
seen his smile so wide."
"We were at WDW last April to celebrate our daughter's 5th B-Day. Be sure to
stop by City Hall in MK. They gave her a button. Cast members made a big
deal over her all day long. Also, we ate in Cindy's Castle for the character
breakfast. She received an "official birthday proclamation" signed by
Cinderella, Prince Charming, and other assorted princesses. She also got a
complementary birthday cupcake. (you can buy larger cakes if you give
advance notice.) Naturally, she was delighted. If you do a character meal on
your child's B-Day, be sure to tell the CM when you make your PS. Also
mention it again when you arrive at the restaurant. Cast Members really do a
great job of making your child and your family feel really special.
One more thing, we stayed at AS Sports. When I made my reservation I told
the staff that it was my daughter's birthday. When we got to our room there
was an autographed 5x7 picture of Minnie in a B-day card, along with some
festive helium balloons As you can tell, we were just amazed at the
attention our little princess received. It made for a tremendous vacation
and now we can hardly wait to go back."
