    We've been in WDW several times on DD's bday. Some things we've done:

    1) Dinner in Cinderella Castle
    2) Dinner in Norway
    3) Illuminations Celebration Cruise (boat was decorated with balloons, banner, etc.)
    4) Preorder b-day cakes (had these delivered to wherever we were having dinner & also had one delivered to the boat for our Illuminations Cruise)
    5) Manicure at our resort's salon
    6) Decorated our resort room

    We had a special dinner. It was around Halloween and it is her favorite holiday. It's a little expensive, but if you call the Disney florist, they have several ways to decorate your room while you are out.

    Also, I found that if you let the CM's know, they do a great job making sure the little ones feel special.

    We went for DD's 3rd birthday & let them know at the front desk when we checked in. On her b-day morning, she got a wakeup call from Goofy!

    When you say decorating the resort room I have been thinking about this but was wondering if you had a birthday banner how would you hang it up?

    I had a banner which I strung across the curtain rod. I'd poked holes in both the top left & top right corners of the banner. I used curling ribbon strung thru the holes and hung the banner that way. At least...that's how I remember it.

    I also had a 1/2 dozen Mylar birthday balloons (Disney-themed, of course!). The front desk inflated those for me (this was at 7am when they were not busy.)

    I had a few Disney-themed tabletop decorations as well. I had purchased all of these items at our local party store before we'd left on our trip.

    I did all the decorating early in the morning while the kids were still sleeping.

    Thanks ! I had been wondering how to hang it without taping or damaging the wall. And was also wondering about helium! Thanks again :)

    We are going to Disney in October for DD's 5th birthday. I hadn't thought much about what I was going to do special (though it's her first trip to the World, so it's pretty special already :goodvibes)

    Planning on doing Pirate's League or BBB, but that's all I have planned right now.

    We also had a memorable dinner party at dad's birthday. The thing which made it most memorable was the presence of whole family. It was a great experience for us that everyone was together, talking to each other, having fun etc.

    I can't forget that dinner. One of the best moments in my life.
