Would you celebrate your kids bday if...

the actual bday is the following week? Our kids bdays are 1 day apart (4th & 5th of December) We will be in Disney the 27th & 28th of November.

Would you celebrate in Disney? I realize they do not qualify for the free day, just debating on I should order a cake. This will also be their first time to Disney.

For some reason I feel hesitant... not sure why

I say go for it and order the cake. We only get to celebrate DS's birthday on his actual birthdate every 4 years (leap day birthday). In my opinion, it's not important what date you celebrate on, but that you do celebrate

I think it's fine. We will be there the same time and we will have a dinner to celebrate my dh b-day. His b-day is Dec. 7. I wouldn't feel hesitant, we never have the kids' b-day parties on there actual b-day, it;s always on a weekend. Enjoy.

I had my DS's Bday party at home nearly a week after his birthday. What's the difference?

Have fun!!!!

We are celebrating my daughters birthday in Disney around 2 weeks after her birthday. We could not get off work on her actual birthday. We we made all the reservations they said it was fine and couldn't wait to help her celebrate.

I would...we usually do. My DD has celebrate 3 of her 5 birthdays at WDW. They were all within a week of her actual birthday but it has been hard to get there on her actual birthday. This year she is turning 6 and we are celebrating it on a Disney Cruise...our first cruise ever. We booked it for our 10 anniversary but since it is a few days after her actual birthday we are just going to celebrate it down there. (Her b-day is Monday and our Cruise is Thursday.) The cruise staff are very helpful and have already set up to have a cake delivered right after dinner on Thursday. Can't wait to see the look on her face. Don't think that she is expecting it since every other time we have done it she was with the Princesses.

Yes! My youngest son's birthday is on Christmas day. We always celebrate early. My oldest son's birthday is Dec 12. We never celebrate on the exact day. We pick one day in December to celebrate both. It doesn't matter what the exact day is, you can celebrate any day.

I'm just not so sure how well this plan was thought through.

My birthday will be 3 days after our trip next year. I hadn't even thought about it. Maybe I should schedule some 'birthday magic' for myself. Or, maybe drop some *subtle* hints to DW about it.

I am glad you decided to do it DS will be celebrating his 11th birthday about 2 weesk early because he would like to celebrate on board the Disney Magic. Both of my children have birthdays Christmas week. We usually have our family celebration on the actual day (but are happy to move it this year so he can celebrate on the ship) but we have never been able to have friends for party on their actual dates--everyone has family obligations Christmas week.
