Birthday Celebration at Disney World

Disney World is one of my all-time favorite travel destinations. Luckily my 14 year old daughter still thinks the same. Every year we go to Disney to celebrate her birthday. This year is no different.

Disney World in December

Her birthday is in December. When we tell people we’re going to Disney in December all we hear is, “It’s so crowded”. In all my years of visiting Disney World, you just never know. But, it’s almost always crowded – you have to wait In line for attractions, restaurants are filled, it’s hard to move around.

We’re used to busy and not-so-busy. The time right before Christmas until a week or so after New Year’s is the most crowded. All of the resorts and parks are decorated. Special events such as the Candlelight Processional an, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas bring in lots of people.

Disney Birthday Trip Planning

Since this is a birthday trip, my daughter gets to pick the Disney Vacation Club resorts that she prefers. Our travel dates are just a bit before Christmas, so we work around the “no availability” we often hear. The only thing we don’t work around is dinner. Reservations or ressies are made as soon as our plans are finalized. We bring cold weather clothing too because it can get downright chilly.

Even if we’re not there on her exact birthday date, we still bring along a few gifts. And we give her a set amount of money to spend as she wishes at Disney. Yes, she wears her “Birthday” pin. She loves getting wishes from Cast Members and strangers.

Disney Birthday Memories

We think back on her look of awe when balloons and a card signed by her favorite characters were left in our hotel room. One of the best birthday cakes we had was made at the Boardwalk Bakery. It was in the shape of Mickey Mouse and covered in chocolate. From a baby from soon to be 15 years old, some of our favorite memories have been at Disney World.
