How to Celebrate Your Birthday at Disney World

Want to spend your favorite day of the year at your favorite place in the world?

Here's a guide to the most magical Disney birthday EVER!

The first step to having a fantastic birthday at Walt Disney World is to make sure everyone knows! Let your travel agent know, and be sure to tell the Cast Member at check-in!

1. Tell Cast Members

Everyone else in your party can get a free “I’m Celebrating” button. Get these at Guest Services at the Disney parks or at your Disney resort front desk.

2. Get a free birthday button

Cake-themed Mickey ears, a sash that says "Birthday," and graphic t-shirts showing that it's your birthday are all great ways to spread the news!

3. Wear Disney-themed birthday gear

Or pre-order a birthday cake in the shape of Mickey's head for $39. 

4. Get free dessert at many restaurants

Don’t have Memory Maker? No problem! All the photographers will take pictures for you with your phone.

5. Get your photos taken all day
