Disneyland Celebration Options
Celebrating in the Parks
Disneyland is the perfect place to celebrate an occasion with all-new entertainment. Guests can focus their celebration on favorite characters, favorite attractions and favorite stories to create a custom celebration in the park. And while you're celebrating, enjoy some of these magical touches.
Complimentary celebration buttons will help Disney cast members and fellow guests recognize you and your celebration. Pick one up at City Hall on Main Street or the Guest Relations Lobby in Disney’s California Adventure Park. This alerts all Disney Cast Members that there is a celebration and the guest of honor may receive special attention. Usually, it's a simple greeting like "Happy Anniversary" or "Happy Birthday", but sometimes you'll get more fun such as a free dessert or happy birthday sung to them at an attraction.
Customizing Your Celebration
Whether you want to mark a birthday, send special congratulation wishes, or just give your family a magical “vacation welcome”, the celebrating can start right in your Disneyland resort room. Let Disney create the perfect setting with surprise presents, magical treats, gift baskets and more. Call Hotel Amenities at (714) 300-7526, Option 2.
