Walt Disney World Celebration Options at the Resorts

Whether you want to mark a birthday, send special congratulation wishes, or just give your family a magical “vacation welcome,” the Walt Disney World Celebration Options can start right in your resort room. If you will be celebrating a special occasion at Walt Disney World, be sure to note it on your room reservation! You never know if a little magic may happen!

Let Disney specialists create the perfect setting by decorating your Resort Room with surprise presents, magical treats, banners, confetti, personalized signs, and more. Call (407) WDW-GIFT or visit the Walt Disney World Florist web site to customize the picture-perfect look for your stay or have the perfect occasion present or floral arrangement waiting in the room for your arrival. Contact them for information on other select delivery locations. Disney World Florist party planners can also provide you with decorations specifically created for kids, romance, or birthday fun.

Save money and decorate your resort room yourself! Or, let everyone know you’re celebrating by decorating your resort room window. For a child’s birthday, post a sign in the window with streamers and an arrangement of his or her favorite stuffed animals on the window sill. However, do not use tape or any material that may cause damage.  Window clings are a great option.  The decoration possibilities are endless! Resort window decorations are common at Walt Disney World during Christmastime.

Capture Your Moment Portrait Sessions: Preserve and personalize your fond Walt Disney World memories by scheduling a special 20 minute session with a Disney PhotoPass Photographer. These sessions cost $99, include up to 8 people in your party, and can be booked online 60 days in advance. You can choose any of the four theme parks as your location.

Walt Disney World Celebration Options at the Restaurants

If you will be celebrating a special occasion while dining at Walt Disney World, be sure to note it on your dining reservation (and also on you room or vacation package reservation)!

In some cases, you may even find confetti sprinkled on your table when you arrive.

Special celebration cakes can be ordered to be delivered while you dine by selecting the option in the My Disney Experience app when booking your reservation, or by visiting the restaurant’s podium at least 4 days prior to your reservation. This option is available at most table service restaurants across Disney World property.
