I called their private dining number but the person fielding the questions had to keep putting me on hold for the answers, then eventually just asked me to call back to speak to someone else. I'm looking for a small, Halloween-themed birthday cake. Only 3 of us... so it didn't need to be a massive cake (one of which is a 6 year old whose eyes are bigger than her stomach. )

Not even sure if this is possible.
It's not too late. A 2-tier minicake might be enough for you, if you can reign in the 6-year-old. There was one posted a few pages back that was done in orange and purple buttercream that might be a good Halloween cake.

This thread has been great for getting ideas on cakes. My mom and I are planning a trip down to WDW in December. I wanted to give her a day that is all about her since she's done some much for me over the years. We will be staying at the GF and I got her a Keys to the Kingdom tour and we will be dining at Victoria and Alberts. Does anyone know if cakes can be delivered to Victoria and Alberts for dessert?

Since we've spent so much time at WDW over the years I thought about getting a custom cake to celebrate our memories. I was thinking of using bits and pieces from rides that no longer exist like Mr. Toad and Horizons. Does anyone think this is possible? I worry that if I mention those rides no one is going to know what I'm talking about.

Someone mentioned that the person who usually takes cake orders has been out of the office. I'd call back and speak to someone to confirm the cake.

V&A's is the one place you can't get a pre-made "podium cake," but I don't know if that means they can't serve any cakes there. If you're staying at the GF, why not just have it delivered to your room? Then you don't even have to carry it.

I didn't even think of that. Our dinner reservations are at 5:00pm and I heard dinner at V&A can be a few hours. Do you think the cake would keep if I had it delivered to our room during our dinner? I want it to be a surprise when she walks through the door. I've never planned anything like this before and I tend to over think things.

Oh you can *never* overthink when it comes to Disney! Dinner does last several hours at V&As - you might want to schedule the cake to arrive toward the end of dinner, just so it isn't sitting out too long. Maybe 2 or 2 1/2 hours after your reservation time?

Sounds like 7:00-7:30 might be a good time then. Now I just need to figure out how to get my vague idea across to the right people. If you are having a cake delivered to the room, do they charge the room or can I put it on a separate card? I don't want my mom to have to buy her own cake.

Unfortunately they do charge it to the room, and even if you try to give them a separate credit card to charge, it usually winds up on the hotel bill anyway. Can you give your mom a Disney gift card that she can use to pay that part of the bill when she checks out? She doesn't even have to know how much it's for...

Thanks I will tell him

I have been getting Disney gift cards over the past couple of weeks so I'll just add them to the stack she has and tell her not to look at the bill.

When I placed my recent cake order from CR, delivered to BLT on October 10, I specifically asked that it be charged to my CC. The CM said they could just charge it to the room, but when I asked if it could just be charged directly, he said it wouldn't be a problem. He had to take the CC info as a guarantee anyway, so it didn't create extra work I don't think. The credit card receipt was folded discretely but obviously on the cake delivery tray. Not sure if the GF would do the same, but it can't hurt to ask.

Thanks for the info. I was planning on asking just in case they could charge it separately.
