View Full Version : 60th B-day...making it extra-magic for my mom!!!

11-04-2005, 08:16 PM
My 4 kids (2,4,6,8) and I are taking my mom to WDW for her 60th b-day at the end of January (Jan27-Feb1). We booked Hoop-de-doo revue for her actual b-day night dinner.
This is her first trip to Disney (our 3rd, with a fairly recent one in March/April . . . insane crowds, so I'm looking forward to a more mellow WDW with Jan. crowds) and I can promise you there is NO ONE in the whole world who is more excited about spending her 60th b-day in Disney with her grandbabies!!
What can we do to make the trip extra special for her? Can we get b-day cakes or special recognition or anything for her? I'm willing to pay (undercover, so she doesn't see) if necessary. Do the parks do anything other than the b-day pin/button??

We are staying at Pop, got connecting rooms . . .

My mom is truly such a giving, unselfish person who lives for her kids and grandkids and would do anything for us. This trip is a serious luxury for her, something we could never have afforded when I was a child. I really just want to do everything I can to make it extra-extra-magic for her.

I'd love any ideas you DIS-ers have -- I thought I was organized and knowledgeable on my last 2 trips b/c I read the Unofficial Guide . . . wow, you guys seriously put me to shame!!!

You could get her a Tiara to wear. I do not think they have special cake or cookies there, because they only have strawberry shortcake. But you might be able to bring some of those food sparklers and ask the waiter/waitress for a little help. You could also arrive early (or call over) and speak to the restaurant manager(espically good if they have a day or two's notice). My boys wore their HB buttons and I got a ribbon that said I'm seven today(and they were). Well one of the performers (the blonde one) came over and sang the A you're adorable song, and tried to get them to give her a kiss(which no 7yo boy is going to kiss a strange girl)...It was SO CUTE. We taped it on the digital camera...a moment I will never forget. So you might find a special ribbon at the dollar store or a party supply house.

My mother's birthday is at the end of December (turning 60 also) & we will all be arriving at POP on January 21st for 8 days...so I guess the grandkids & I can celebrate her b-day with her, although a little late. Maybe we'll see you there!
