Disneyland Vacation Planning

Disneyland Birthday Celebration

Below are some ideas and options to make your birthday celebration at Disneyland a magical one!

  • 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, and the child’s favorite character(s)
  • Let your Resort/Hotel know when you check-in. Sometimes they will do something special for your child ranging from autographed character pictures and birthday buttons 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 Disneyland or ‘Guest Services' in Disney California Adventure for a complimentary Birthday Button. If the line is long, it may be worth checking with other nearby shops, as they sometimes have buttons as well.
  • 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 in the parks and Disneyland Resort Hotels on this day.
  • Mickey Mouse Celebration Cakes
    Celebrate with a festive cake in the shape of Mickey Mouse! Choose from chocolate or white chocolate, and engravings of "Happy Birthday" or "Congratulations". Cakes must be ordered at least 3 days in advance. These can be ordered through Vacation Planning or Disneyland Dining and can be delivered to any full-service restaurant. Cakes feed 4 to 6 guests and are $45 plus tax and gratuity. Disneyland will do their best to accommodate dietary requirements, however, those cakes must be ordered at least 4 weeks in advance via email to [email protected]
