Disneyland is always magical, but going there on your birthday can be something else entirely. & with Disney giving you the best gift of all this year, FREE admission on your birthday, you might find yourself celebrating several birthdays at Disneyland. So, we thought we’d share with you some of the birthday celebrations available at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Upon arriving at Disneyland the very first stop you should make is to City Hall to receive your FREE birthday button. They’ll personalize it with your name & all day long park employees will be wishing you a happy day.

If you are looking for a bit more of an actual celebration, there are several to choose from:

Birthday baker “Pat E. Cake” hosts the “My Disneyland Birthday Party” at the Plaza Inn Restaurant. This 45 minute- 1 hour long birthday celebration involves guest decorating their own personal cake, party games & activities, & a special appearance by Mickey & Minnie Mouse. The cost is $15.99 (plus tax) per person, children under 2 are FREE, & if you have an annual pass you get a discount. For information regarding times, or to make a reservation (although you can usually just “walk up”) call (714)781-DINE.

While dining at select restaurants you can also order either a Sorcerer Mickey or Princess “Birthday Bucket“. Each bucket comes with an individual-sized birthday cake with candle, birthday buttons, a collectible toy, & a “Happy Birthday” collectible cloisonne pin. The buckets are available for $20 each (plus tax) at the following resort restaurants (while dining): Blue Bayou, Carnation Cafe, Ariel’s Disney Princess Celebration, Wine Country Trattoria, Vineyard Room, Storyteller’s Cafe, PCH Grill, Yamabuki, Goofy’s Kitchen, Hook’s Pointe, Granville’s. You can also purchase a bucket directly from the Plaza Inn & from room service at any of the 3 Disney owned hotels.

If your birthday plans involve dining at Goofy’s Kitchen, you can purchase a “Birthday Bag” which is filled with a balloon, party hat, souvenir Goofy pen, toy maraca, puzzle, & a birthday cupcake cake. The “Birthday Bag” is available for $5 each (plus tax).

& finally, if you will be celebrating a birthday at any of the Disneyland Resort Hotel Restaurants, don’t forget to pre-order a cake especially for the occasion. An array of cake size & designs are available to suit your needs, although 48 hours advance notice is required. Call (714)781-DINE for pricing & other information.

Hope you have a Happy Happy Birthday!
