Thumbs up Mickey and Pal's Birthday Bash/Disney Dream Makers- Pictures Heavy!!!!

Hello All,

I know, I know, I know.. I promised you pictures when we left WAAAAAAAYYYYY back in June.. Life got in the way! Eventually I'll do a WHOLE trip report.. we did all the character meals BUT storytellers.. we did the BBB.. we did it ALL..

SO as a recap.. we did my Minnie Addict's 4th birthday at PPH back in June.
I chose to do the big Mickey and pals in-room celebration.
It was Fabulous! I mean it.
This was Back in June so I will try and list all they had in each gift.
We weren't able to get it done June 12th (her bday) the dream makers were over booked with grads...
BUT we ordered a birthday cake (that they spelled her name wrong her.. Her name is Layna.. not Lavna.. BUT DH fixed it)


The next day while we were in the park, the DDM's fixed our room up...
The door:



Inside the room:





Her autograph book book and pen:

all the box tags:






Now Let me see if I can recall all that was in there, it was 6 months ago.. and we got a ton of stuff BESIDES this.. (aka I think I am missing stuff in my lists)

Mickey Mouse's Birthday Present
Mickey Mouse plush Wearing a light up “It's My Birthday!” Lanyard
Birthday ears with her name
A picture frame
a book about hidden mickeys
light up spinning mickey


Minnie Mouse's Birthday Present
a chocolate "jewelry box"
a bedtime story book
and a light up minnie toy


Donald Duck's Birthday Present
A donald duck mug
caramel corn
a nice Beach towel




Goofy's Birthday Present
Candy: salt water taffy, and sour candies
a picture album
For the life of me I can't remember what else..


Pluto's Birthday Present
dog-bone-shaped "crunch" bar with a chocolate dog bowl
lanyard and pin set
and a stuffed pluto


Now people usually want to know her reaction:




And at the end of the day: (please note the death grip on the autograph book)

I'm pretty sure it was $395.

We had been planning to go in April, but due to my husband's work we had to reschedule. We chose to go for her birthday and I just did this instead of a big bash with all her friends..

Pricey but so worth it! Her face says it all!!!

it really was worth it.

When we got the call.. we headed back. DH stopped off at concierge to get snacks *stalling*.. I ran up took tons of pics and texted him we were ready..
I got ready with the camera which reminds me.. I have a movie on my phone of her coming in.. but the pictures sum it up pretty good

Oh my gosh, those photos gave me chills!! How wonderfully magical! Thanks for sharing! We'll be at PPH in 3 days to celebrate DD 2nd birthday. I'm planning to set up my own little surprise birthday celebration for her, I've been stock piling Mickey gifts! Did you get to keep all the pieces that were in the room? The signs and everything?

Haha as an adult I'd be pretty happy with most of it.. maybe not the spinning thing, but if i had no kids to give it to, I'd find two kids in the lobby to give it to
