“Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear…” well, you know the rest. We all know this song as the anthem to a very special day! A day filled with laughter, love and celebration. But can you imagine celebrating your special day at the place where dreams come true? For those of you who’d love a birthday celebration at Walt Disney World or the Disneyland Resort, you’re going to love this! And according to the “Discover Your Disney Side” quiz, if your loved one is fun, enthusiastic, sweet, kind, loyal or your best pal, then read on because this post is also for you! If you’re just joining us and wondering what the excitement is all about, check out our introduction post to this year’s Disney 14 Days of Love and take the quiz!


One of the most popular requests we receive from guests is, “Can Mickey come to our resort room to wish my child a Happy Birthday?” So our creative team took on the challenge and designed a birthday celebration experience that felt just as if Mickey and the gang came to your Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort room! Imagine this: you just celebrated your child’s birthday with a full day in the parks. As you return to your Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort room, you notice a “Happy Birthday” banner hanging on your door. When you open the door, you see that your resort room is filled with surprises left by Mickey and the rest of the Fab 5, all in celebration of your child’s birthday! Imagine the jaw-dropping memory you’ll create.


With Mickey and Pals Big Birthday Wish at Walt Disney World and Mickey and Friends Birthday Bash at the Disneyland Resort, every member of the Disney Fab 5 brought goodies and surprises to create a one-of-a-kind surprise in celebration of their special birthday! Mickey Mouse made sure to bring essential birthday party items including birthday ears and balloons. And in true Minnie fashion, that sweet mouse brought a delicious candy cake. Goofy, Donald and Pluto also brought along surprises for the celebration, including a few “goofy” gags, “quacky” surprises and “doggy” keepsakes.

And, you can also customize these experiences as well as personalize them. For example, you can add on additional birthday ears for the rest of the family as well as have them embroidered. After you enjoy it here, take it with you and use it year after year for birthday celebrations at home.

These resort experiences are available now for purchase. You can order Mickey and Pals Big Birthday Wish at Disney World Floral & Gifts online or speak with a Dream Maker at 407-WDW-GIFT. For Mickey and Friends Birthday Bash at Disneyland, you can order online or call a Dream Maker 714-781-GIFT. Once ordered our Dream Makers will prepare the surprise for you while you’re away from your room.

And speaking of surprises, I have a secret to share. Our creative team has begun re-imagining this grand celebration to bring an all new, over-the-top experience right to your Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort room. In the spirit of Disney 14 Days of Love, I’m giving you an exclusive look at some of our concept art for this brand new experience! The picture below represents possible art for five new bins for the new birthday surprise. What do you think?


Each collapsible bin will feature goodies and surprises from each character, all in celebration of your big day! It’s slated to launch on both coasts fall of 2015. And, there’s more in store! So, stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog and at Disney World and for Disneyland. And be sure to join me tomorrow for day eleven of Disney 14 Days of Love, where I’ll be sharing romantic ideas for expressing your affection on Valentine’s Day.

So now that you’ve seen some of the concept art for the brand new birthday celebration, what do you think? We want your feedback! Share which bin is your favorite and tell us what else you’d like to see in your birthday surprise by commenting below or using #Disney14DaysofLove. See you tomorrow!


  • I love all the bins and what a great idea! I was just looking at the packages for our trip and my biggest concern was that the current boxes are so cute it would be a waste to leave the behind, but we wouldn’t be able to take them home with the stroller ect. I am sure people flying would have the same problem. What a great little keepsake in addition to the celebration, you could use them to store Disney toys in later
