Celebrating your special day at Disneyland

So many of us travel to the Disney Parks to celebrate a special occasion. Whether it be a birthday, anniversary, or a “first visit,” Disney wants to celebrate with you.

We’ve been celebrating birthdays at Disneyland for a few years now. Both my husband and daughter have been lucky to get a few extra treats because they were wearing their birthday buttons.


At Disneyland, head into Town Hall and get your celebration button from Guest Relations. Throughout the day, you’ll have both Cast Members and park guests wishing you a happy birthday or congratulating your special day. Emma was thrilled when a cupcake came to the table for her 3rd birthday. Who knew the Mad Hatter could sing “Happy Birthday” so well!


On our last trip, my husband was very happy he left his birthday button on. You just never know who is watching. We ordered beignets from the Mint Julep, and were pleasantly surprised to find a few extra treats of powdery goodness in our bag.  A little extra pixie dust goes a long way!
