    Hey, so while I have been to Disney World many times with my grandparents, it is my boyfriends first trip. I listed it under celebrations in my reservation as a surprise to him but I am not sure what that entails for him. What should I expect?

    Hi Amber,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting to hear that you will be celebrating your boyfriend's first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    We have a tradition of celebrating my husband's birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort. And, like you, I noted that celebration on all of our resort hotel reservations and all of our advanced dining reservations. Since it was a birthday, at most restaurants the Cast Member who served us acknowledged the birthday and my husband got mini cupcakes. At a few character experiences, he got a birthday card signed by the characters. 

    We always pick up celebratory buttons at our resort hotel and our girls love to make my husband wear his on his birthday. When we are wearing our buttons, Cast Members all take a minute to say, "Happy Birthday" and to wish us well. We always celebrate with a special dining reservation, typically at California Grill during the Happily Ever After fireworks show. 

    To add to the magic for our girls when we are celebrating them, we have ordered balloons from Disney Floral & Gifts. And, we have added a special experience through the Enchanting Extras Collection. The girls and I now always do Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room. We have also loved the Caring for Giants and Up Close with Rhinos tours. 

    Amber, I trust you will have the most magical time in the parks celebrating your boyfriend's birthday!

    Magic and memories,
