I posted this on the disney tips board but got no feedback so I thought I'd post here.. How far before a birthday is too far ahead to celebrate your birthday at the parks? This is for way ahead but I'm a planning weirdo and it's helping me get past the long drought of disney withdrawel I have ahead of me.... I'm planning to take my family to disney .. a surprise trip... a month before my mom's birthday, my nieces birthady, and mine. I'm not going to celebrate mine... but was thinking of letting them know it's mom and niece's... and I am going to have a cake delivered to our room and maybe a Peggy's Creations gift... do you think a month before a birthday is just being silly? Their birthdays are in October and I want to take them in Sept because the crowds are so low then and as much as I"d love to go for halloween... I want my niece's first trip to be good old basic disney without dealing with Halloween.
