    We will be in Disney on Nov 17th for my son's 11th birthday, he is super excited. How do I make sure they acknowledge his birthday from check in to check out? We went for my daughter's 11th birthday and they were great, but a lot has changed.

    Hello Jennifer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    I love celebrating special ones at the Walt Disney World Resort! This year I celebrated my wedding anniversary and last year we celebrated our daughter’s birthday so here are a couple of tips:

    Make sure to get your son’s birthday noted on all of your dining reservations by calling (407) 939-3463. In addition, upon arriving at your dining location remind Cast Members of your celebration. 

    You can also note your son’s birthday on your Disney Resort hotel reservation, and I highly recommend that you do so. Call (407) 939-1936 and ask Cast Members to include this celebration on your reservation.

    Your son should wear a special birthday button so that all Cast Members are Guests can see he is commemorating his special date! People love joining others in celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can ask for the birthday button at Front Desk at your Disney Resort hotel or at any of the theme parks and Disney Springs.

    I hope these tips help. While nothing is guaranteed, you never know what type of magic may come your way! 

    Best magical wishes,
