Who was the contact department for this beautiful cake? PP Room service or Vacation Planning? I have called Vacation Planning to discuss ideas for my son's 4th birthday at DLH and they have been great giving me different ideas. They mentioned that I can special order a cake; did Disney come up with this design or did the person who ordered it tell them what to make? Also, was this served at a restaurant or was it delivered to your room? I have gone back and forth with just having a slice of cake served at Goofy's Kitchen with a candle but after seeing this stunning cake I am leaning towards a special order!

MamaKate, was it as delicious as it looks? We'll be celebrating dh's bday on our next trip and would love to order a cake like that. Do you recall the price and did you call vacation planning?

Looks like the birthday pic you were kind of enough to share has kicked this little thread back up to the top. I can't wait to see other pictures. The birthday is really cute. I really like the addition of the mickey, and all the extra details. This is why I thought this thread would help some of us who will be coming soon get some new, and different ideas on what we can do to add more magic to the already happiest place on earth. Look forward to reading, and seeing others who have celebrated a birthday, or event, or even who just decided to add more magic to their vacation.

Thanks everyone for the comments on the cake photo ,

The cake was ordered through Vacation Planning along with a gift basket, but for some reason I didn't take a picture of the gift basket .

They had several options available. They were able to fax a list to me with all the flavors, sizes and themes available. The one I ordered was the smallest available (I think it was 6") so the decorations were limited. We didn't request anything special except for the cake flavor and let them design it however they thought was best.

For cakes 10" and over, there were several themes and character decorations available, but we were only a family of 4 so it would've been too much cake for us. But all the rooms do have refrigerators so if you do get a bigger cake, at least it won't go bad.

I don't remember the exact cost but I think it was around $40 plus a delivery fee similiar to room service charge.

This service is available at all 3 of the hotels. I had ordered a Little Mermaid cake for my daughter at the Disneyland Hotel and a Buzz Lightyear cake for my son at the Grand Californian, but these were both about 5-6 years ago so I don't have any pictures. But the option is available at all of the hotels.

Bumping up this thread. Many people are now looking at wanting special things for their trip to Disneyland. If anyone has ANY pics of special things you have arranged/ and/ or, pics of things Disneyland Hotels have given you during your stay please share them if you will. I think this thread would turn out to be a really nice one. I know the WDW section has an awesome WDW cake thread, but you hardly here anything on Disneyland, so if anyone has some to share lets see if we can shine some spotlight on some of the Magical Creations brought to life by the Disneyland crew.

gThose are TOO cute. I loved the girls basket. I also loved seeing all the treats you planned. The cookies, and milk was a great pic, and I am sure everyone will greatly appriciate that since it has been a topic on the board about ordering things in room like that. The milk and cookie package is pricey, but now that there is a pic we can see what we are getting for that price, and it's pretty darn cute even if it is 2 cookies, and milk at that price the cute factor, and looks on faces will make up for that. Thank you so much for sharing.
