What better place than Disney World to celebrate a special occassion? Be sure to stop by the guest services booth located at all of the parks to pick up your complimentary button! The buttons are a great way to let cast members know that it is your special day. Buttons are available for "first visit", "anniversary" and "birthday". When we went to guest services everyone in our family was given a button to place on our backpacks, to save, etc. The button really brought special attention to my special birthday girl on her 5th birthday. Several characters even signed her autograph book "Happy birthday".
I made sure to have a fun action packed birthday for my birthday girl. We had breakfast at Chef Mickey's and my daughter was given a complimentary chocolate cupcake with the best icing I have tasted. It was such a rich chocolatey cupcake that my daughter could not even finish the whole thing! Next up we went to Magic Kingdom and I surprised my daughter with an appointment at the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique! She was given a special 'birthday' sash to wear which was really cute. She loved every second of this experience. Then we rode more rides, met the Disney Princesses and Tinkerbell (the line for Tink was almost 45 minutes!). We had dinner with Cinderella at 1900 Park Fare located in the beautiful Grand Floridian. We hopped on the monorail from Magic Kingdom and were at the restaurant in just a few minutes. The meal was amazing and Cinderella spent quite a while visiting with my children, posing for pictures. The buffett was wonderful and this was probably one of our favorite meals of the week! My daughter received a complimentary birthday cupcake and a keepsake placemat that all of the characters had signed. What a special birthday!

If you want to make the special day even more special contact the Disney Florist to arrange a delivery of a special present or gift basket. Want to order a custom cake? Call the Walt Disney World Resort at (407) 827-2253 (48 hours notice is required). If you're on a budget, I recommend bringing your own princess costume for a trip to the BBB to save money. They are much cheaper at a big box store like Walmart or Target. Also, bring a few surprise birthday presents and leave them in the room for when you return from your day at the parks.
