Birthdays & Celebrations at Walt Disney World
Whether honoring a birthday or -- as celebrated in the classic Disney animated film, "Alice in Wonderland," -- an UN-birthday, Walt Disney World Resort is celebration central 365 days a year. No matter what the fantasy -- a romantic twilight cruise, a mid-day escape to Neverland or a splash-tacular slide down a ski slope -- the magic-makers at Disney can create the perfect celebration.
If you're staying at a WDW Resort, or dining at a WDW restaurant, make sure you mention your special celebration when you check-in.
Guests of all ages can book a Celebration Cruise that lets them set sail on Disney's waterways aboard a pontoon boat with stereo options and a VIP viewing of a fireworks spectacular -- either "Illuminations: Reflections of Earth" at Epcot or "Wishes" at Magic Kingdom. Themed decorations, including a banner and balloons, snacks and drinks, are included in the party package (407/WDW-BDAY for more information).
The party-planning experts on the Walt Disney World Resort Sales team can turn one spark of imagination into a fully-themed creative bash with detailed décor and entertainment. A "Villain" party at Disney's Hollywood Studios might feature a crypt entrance, an eerie Tower of Terror bellhop host and gifts sent by favorite Disney villains. An "Under the Sea" party might include appearances by characters from Disney's animated classic "The Little Mermaid," a band playing Disney songs and a "bubble cave" party space lit in deep-water blue with ocean sound effects.
