Get a free birthday button from Guest Services

This is common knowledge enough if you’re an avid Park goer, but you can pick up a free badge from Disney Guest Services, no matter what you’re celebrating. They have buttons from “first visit” to “newlyweds” but we’re looking at theĀ  “Happy Birthday” or “I’m celebrating” badges where you can write in what exactly you’re celebrating. Maybe it’s your big 30th Birthday? Let everyone know by writing it on your free birthday badge.

Make a reservation at a special restaurant

There are so many special and unique restaurants in the Walt Disney World Resort. Why not try something extra special for your birthday?

Check out the Grand Yacht 1 and go for an evening dinner cruise on your own private charter yacht! Grand Yacht 1 will tour around Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake while you’re waited on by a butler and escorted around the waters while you have dinner. Enjoy the Fireworks from the bow once the sun goes down to top off this super memorable and unique experience.

You could also try having dinner at California Grill Lounge at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. There is an incredible view from this 15th floor restaurant you can enjoy an amazing view of fireworks from here with your friends or family in a fine dining setting.

These cakes can be delivered at any restaurant or to a hotel room by getting in touch with the Disney Dining Reservations Line, or by calling the Disney cake line (yes there is seriously a Disney cake hotline) at (407) 827-2253.
