Mickey and Pals Big Birthday Wish Gift?

Has anyone ordered this? I am assuming it is new this year, but would love to hear if anyone has had this sent to their room and how it went over and the details on what was included.

Mickey Mouse and Pals Birthday Bash Birthday Wishes gift.

It says it includes:

All around the room, large, colorful packages have your name on them; themed to Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck and Pluto, these presents create a festive environment! On the wall hangs a bright Birthday Banner, as well as a splashy colorful Wall Decoration in the shape of brilliant birthday balloons. There’s even an Autograph Book on the table, signed to you by Mickey Mouse himself. And if you take a peek around, you’ll find Tinker Bell's shadow; she’s come by to sprinkle Pixie Dust on you! All of this is not only there for you to enjoy – every piece is meant for you to take home!


Mickey Mouse's Birthday Present
This 15” box sits on the bed with a large, Mickey Mouse plush beside it. Around his neck is a Light-Up Lanyard for the Birthday person to wear. It says, “It's My Birthday!”
Mickey Mouse Ears embroidered with the Birthday person’s name.
Mickey Mouse and the Gang Picture Frame which includes a personalized message from Mickey Mouse.
Minnie Mouse's Birthday Present
Minnie Mouse's pretty package sits on the table waiting for you.
Open the lid and find a smaller golden box nestled inside – inside that is a decorative, chocolate, Candy “Cake” that Minnie Mouse has made just for you!
Donald Duck's Birthday Present
This box sits on the other bed and is full of Donald Duck's gifts just for you.
Donald's choices are "quacky" and lots of fun!
And, to top it off, you'll know Donald was there by the white feathers he left behind!
Goofy's Birthday Present
Inside Goofy's box is the resort room phone; if you call the number on the card attached, you’ll hear Goofy sing his Birthday wish to you!
The gifts in his box include sweet keepsakes of "Goofy" memories!
Pluto's Birthday Present
Pluto's a puppy who’s taken care of this party’s hunger!
Inside his box are delightful treats specially chosen by Pluto himself including dog-bone-shaped Krispy bars for "people" placed in an adorable dog bowl, and set on a Pluto placemat!
Pluto is big on dog collars, so he thought a nice surprise would also be a "human collar" (a Disney lanyard that includes a starter pin set!)


It is $395 but if it is worth it I will get it to surprise dd for her 4th bday. I am just wondering what else is in the boxes..... like for Donald's gift it just says quacky and lots of fun. I would love to hear someone's experience with this gift set.

It may be just me, but I think that is a crazy amount of money to pay for a stuffed Mickey and some sweet treats to be put in your room w/decorations. If you are thinking about spending that much, consider:

I have read a lot of great things about gifts of a lifetime and like that it can be an experience as well.

I would also consider doing the Disney Girl Tea w/Aurora instead or do something yourself that is specific to your dd....like ship a box of more personal surprises and sneak them in the room. You can also check this out for more choices in Disney gifts:

I am trying to be helpful, but I am gobsmacked by the price. I bet there is an awesome surprise that could happen for much less!

I looked at gifts of a lifetime, but they say they don't arrange things for children under 5. From what I have seen it costs close to $200 for room decorating..... stuff like an autograph book, mouse ears, picture frame and stuff that are in the gifts are stuff we would buy anyways...... $400 does seem like a lot.... that is why I am trying to figure out what stuff is in the Donald box and goofy box for example......

Of coarse when I first saw it $400 seemed cheap, but now that you point it out, it may not be the best value. But I guess compaired to us paying a the couple thousand we are paying for VIP tours, everything else seems like a fairly cheap addition.

We thought about the tea party, but I just don't like the time of day they are scheduled for and I really don't want to have to pay a bunch more for my mom and sis to go too, but they would feel left out.

I guess no one had purchased this.... maybe I can call and they can tell me what is in the other boxes.

Mickey's present contains a pair of personalized ears.

Minnie's present contains a miniature chocolate candy cake in a gold box.

Goofy's present contains a dated photo album and a 1 pound bag of Goofy's Taffy.

Donald's present contains a Navy Cinch Sack (Donald's little bottom and feet hang out of the pocket on the front), a beach towel, Donald's beak (whistle on a lanyard that looks like Donald's beak) and a book (currently - Walt Disney, An American Legend).

Pluto's present contains a Disney Dog Bowl on a Disney Pet Place Mat, 5 Rice Krispee Treats in the shape of dog bones (covered in chocolate) and a human collar (Disney Pin Trading Starter Set).

Why not get Mickey's Welcome w/HB balloons?

When we're @ WDW in June, it will be my DD's 8th bday, and DS will have turned 5 about 3 wks before that. I originally thought about the Big Birthday Welcome too, but when a friend pointed out the $395, I realized the $$! So, I opted for the Mickey's Welcome for $200, and added more to it (another plush, snacks, coloring books, more balloons, etc) and our total w/delivery is now around $325 However, I feel like it's more useful stuff for both kids, than mainly one.

You could always do the Mickey's Welcome and add some things to it? I called Disney Florist and my CM was Amanda N (awesome girl, who really took the time to work with me and knew her stuff). Feel free to PM me for more info. I will post pics when we're back

Interesting...what about for an adult woman? Do they have baskets to choose from or are they custom made? What kind of events have been done for adults? Need ideas from all my creative Disfriends! Thanks so much!
