My DD & I are going to be at CSR just after her birthday and I was wondering where would be the best place to order a 6inch cake to be delivered to the room??

There are soooooo many options and wonderful cakes I have seen on this thread!!

I always prefer to have it delivered to the room because it's gonna end up there anyway and then I don't have to carry it! AoA is very easy to work with for cakes.

We had a stroller and the fireworks were just going to start. We had to exit the front of the castle and we did just as the first firework went off. That was amazing. And since we couldn't get out w/ our stroller b/c of the crowd, we ended up w/ a front row seat on the bridge. The night was magical.
What a great experience! Thanks for letting us know how it went!

Unfortunately, CSR is the one place that *doesn't* have many options—they don't get their cakes from a Disney bakery like the rest of the resorts, they make their own. And they only have five choices. Complete details are in Post #2. Alternatively, you could order a cake for one of your meals elsewhere, and then you'll have more options. Just find the park or resort in the list in Post #2 for details on ordering and options.

I am leaning toward the mini castle cake - chocolate buttercream frosting over a chocolate cake. It's a win/win since he'll eat the cake and I'll get the castle!

Quick question regarding payment - is the cost of the cake always added to your restaurant bill or can I keep the cost separate (i.e. a secret) and pay it ahead of time?
You can't pay it ahead of time, but you can get it billed separately. When we had my sister's birthday cake at WCC in Feb, I quietly spoke to the waiter after he had served the cake and let him know the bill for that was to come to me. He had no problem with that.

I've had the Oreo one. It wasn't my cup of tea, but I prefer buttercream frosting, and they use whipped cream frosting. They sell individual slices of the cakes in the counter-service place. This isn't what a full cake would look like, but it will give you an idea...

Hi (again)!

I posted this question on the CBR thread but no one thought that the resort handled this:

Does the cake hotline also handle requests for the tuxedo strawberries? I noticed pictures on this thread where some folks had room service celebrations that involved chocolate covered strawberries and champagne.

I already have a surprise gift basket coming from Disney Florist for my DH and am looking for a small plate of "Welcome to Disney" strawberries and some bubbly.

Just not sure if I contact CBR to arrange this ahead of time or is only available in the Deluxe resorts?

I find myself planning my Disney trips around celebrations just so that I can plan/order a custom cake. Anyone else have this problem???

My next trip will be in November with some friends and we will be celebrating my BEST friend's 29th birthday! We are having her birthday dinner at BOG (can't wait!!!!) and of course I'd love to order a custom cake.

Has anyone had experiences with asking for a mini cake that is covered in chocolate ganache? I know they can do regular sized cakes this way. To say she is a chocolate lover is an understatement, and considering there will only be 4 of us, I feel like a 6" cake will be much too large. I'm also open to suggestions to get as much chocolate in that cake as possible!

I may have missed this info elsewhere, but we are celebrating ds bday at Ohana breakfast on 9/11. Can you get a cake during breakfast hours? I was thinking just a mini cake or special cupcake since we will be heading straight to the park. Any help is appreciated.

Usually this is only available at Deluxe Resorts because they have a Private Dining department to handle it. But it's worth calling the number for CBR in Post #2 just to see if there's a chance their foood service department could do something like this. You can also purchase chocolate-covered strawberries at the candy shop on Main Street, U.S.A., but I know it's not really the same as a surprise delivery...

I don't think that would be a problem.

You can get a cake delivered at any meal, even breakfast. If all you want is a cupcake, many restaurants have free birthday cupcakes they give out. You might just double-check with Ohana.

Thanks lurkyloo!

You've been a wonderful help to me and have been very patient with all the postings!

I will give CBR a call to see if they can finagle a strawberry/bubbly surprise. "It doesn't hurt to ask - they worst that can happen is they say 'no'!"

For those of you (if any) that have had the royal highness package at CRT, how many people will the cake feed (in general). Also I figure the top of the princess is plastic (like a Barbie) and is most likely only waist up, what about the Ariel one? Is she completely plastic? Want to get this for DD next year but we may have 7-10 people at the meal.

If I put in an order for a mini cake or a 6inch cake at Magic Kingdom but are not eating at any TS meals there, where would I pick it up?? Or do I have to have a TS ressie to get one from there?? We will be at CSR so there wont be a delivery, and I would like to just pick one up, just not sure where?
