Birthday/Special Occasion Cakes
Six-inch cakes are available at most Disney full serve restaurants for birthdays and anniversaries. Other cakes are also available and must be ordered in advance by contacting the individual restaurant.
The six-inch celebration cake is $21.00 (plus tax and gratuity.) These do not require advance notice and can be requested at the podium of the full serve restaurant.
If you want a personalized, custom made cake, you can order it via the Cake Hotline: 407-827-2253. This requires 48 hours advance notice.
If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you can order a Celebration Cake to be delivered to your room through room service or through the resort guest services.
Perks at Disney World
- 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
- 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
- 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 Members who signs it know
it’s your child’s Birthday. They will
receive Birthday greetings in many different languages.
