Thanks, Michelle, for the Birthday info. What about the "stickers" that were mentioned in a previous post? Would you suggest that too?

We'll definitely have some opportunities to wish our DD a very Happy Disney Birthday! Went to the mall this evening and bought her a Lilo doll......she went to bed just a little while ago clutching her new doll and with a huge grin on her face!!

The Disney "magic" is swirling around this house!! Now, I need to start packing....and calling tomorrow morning for some of those reservations!!!

I have another question....about gift baskets...but will post it as a new thread...thanks for your responses......I remember your help on the DCL board three years ago!!! You're still providing great info!!! Much appreciation, Karen

<font color=navy>I would definitely get her a birthday sticker at City Hall when you first get in. They will most likely write her name on it, and she'll be greeted by a great many people...

When my 13-yr old cousin came out from Phoenix, we went to DL on her birthday. Without her knowing, we told the jazz musicians that it was her birthday, and they pulled her out of the crowd & played HB to her on the sax.... she was a little embarrassed, but she enjoyed it all the same.

Here's a little more info on the Fantasy Celebration events:

Fantasy Celebration Events -- Guests who want to customize their birthday event can turn to the "Fantasy Celebration Events" specialists. They coordinate every detail and help make dreams come true in a variety of locations and themes. "Fantasy Celebrations" are $100 per person and a 30-day notice is requested. Fantasy Celebration themes include:

"Build a Princess" -- A birthday girl receives a crown and a note that proclaims her an "honorary princess." Throughout a tour of the Resort, princess gifts are layered on (costume jewelry, flowers and a dress), the youngster encounters various Disney princesses, and the day culminates with a birthday dinner attended by a Disney princess.

"A Screamin’ Birthday Party" -- Disney's California Adventure provides the screams and thrills for guests with a tour of exciting attractions and a dinner cruise.

"A Birthday Blast, To Infinity and Beyond!" -- Guests are whisked away to adventures in Disneyland park as "Astro Command Trainees," capped by a visit from Buzz Lightyear.

Question Does it have to be the actual BDAY?

I'm taking my dd as a bday present, but her bday will be a month prior. Does that matter on any of these packages?

No, the date does not matter, it does not have to be the actual birthday.

I wish they had these options in WDW last month. I had my 40th out there and would have liked to celebrate in some of the ways mentioned above. We did do a chef mickeys breakfast on the day but the characters did not interact at all with the kids, they just stood there which is not what we were expecting! I did get a little cake though which was nice.

Thank you for the information. My husband is actually planning a 30th birthday celebration for my twin sister and I. Yes we are having our 30th birthday party at DL. We will most likely be doing the Birthday Party at the Plaza Inn with Mickey and Minnie and Pat E. Cake. Can you imagine about 50 grown ups having a party with kids sippy cups and our own individual cakes to decorate. This is going to be a blast... Our birthday is January 29th but due to NFL and the Super Bowl we are celebrating our birthday valentine's weekend... Can't wait!!!

So thank you very much for this information. I will pass it on to my husband....
