Wear a Birthday Button!


Walt Disney World Buttons

If you’ve spent any time at Disney World, you’ve likely seen guests wearing celebration buttons for various exciting milestones. Be sure to grab a birthday button so everyone knows you’re celebrating something special. You can pick up a button at either the concierge desk at your Disney hotel or at Guest Relations in any of the parks. You never know — you just might get some extra pixie dust from cast members when they notice that it’s your special day!

Get a Special Birthday Cake

Plan an Extra Special Meal… Maybe with Fireworks


California Grill

This one might be my favorite on the list. Have you been waiting for the perfect time to try a fancy Disney World restaurant? Your birthday is a perfect time. Go ahead and splurge for the ultimate Disney World dining experience at Victoria & Albert’s at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. You MUST get dressed up for that! Or go for a princess meal at Cinderella’s Royal Table. For an added magical touch, book dinner at the top of the Contemporary Resort at or California Grill and time it to coincide with the Happily Ever After fireworks. It will certainly be a meal to remember.

Get Pampered with a Spa Package or Makeover


Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Who doesn’t like to be pampered on their birthday? I know I do. If your little princess or pirate will be celebrating a birthday at the Magic Kingdom, book a makeover package at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or the Pirate’s League.

Unfortunately, grown-ups cannot get makeovers at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique like the little ones, but we can get special treatment at one of the salon locations that offers Character Couture packages. These packages will do character-inspired hair and makeup for adults, and include a tiara to boot!

Adults can also enjoy a spa package as a special birthday treat. Book a massage or facial at one of the spas on property and start or end your Disney day with some relaxation and rejuvenation.

Take a Fireworks Cruise


Happily Ever After Fireworks

Celebrate your birthday on the water with a specialty cruise during the Happily Ever After or IllumiNations (soon to be Epcot Forever) fireworks. Your private boat rental includes a captain, sodas and snacks, and banners and balloons. You can learn more about booking a fireworks cruise here.

Enjoy High Tea at the Grand Floridian


Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Want the chance to feel perfectly posh on your birthday? Book an Afternoon Tea or Disney Perfectly Princess Tea at the Grand Floridian’s Garden View Tea Room. Tea times are offered throughout the day but make sure to make your reservations in advance.
