There are also FREE perks you should definitely take advantage of...

Free Birthday Perks

  • Starting in 2009, you can get free Disney park admission on your birthday.

  • Inform Cast Members/Travel Agent when you book your reservation that it is a Birthday celebration and provide them with the name and age of the Birthday child.
  • Let your Resort know when you check-in. Sometimes they will do something special for your child ranging from autographed character pictures to balloons in your room. This does not always happen but we have heard of many instances where it has.
  • Visit ‘City Hall’ on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom, ‘Guest Services' in EPCOT, 'Guest Services' in Disney's Hollywood Studios and ‘Guest Services’ in the Animal Kingdom for a ‘"IT'S MY BIRTHDAY" button. This always generates special attention from the Cast Members in the Parks. Click Here to the other celebration buttons you can choose from.
  • Make sure your child has an ‘Autograph Book’ when they wear the button. They will receive special Birthday greetings from the Characters.
  • Tell the server about the Birthday at all meals on this day. They will bring a decorated cupcake to the table (sit down dining only) with a candle in it.
  • If you are staying at a ‘Disney Resort’, contact the front desk and request a special birthday phone call for your child from a Disney Character.
  • Purchase a passport in EPCOT to have stamped in each country around the ‘World Showcase’ and make sure the Cast Member’s who signs it know it’s your child’s Birthday. They will receive Birthday greetings in many different languages.
