    Birthday Button or Not?

    I am visiting the Disneyland Resort from the 27th of August until the 3rd of September with my grandson, and a family of good friends. I did not choose the dates for the trip. I was invited after the family that I am traveling with had already chosen the dates.

    Here's my question. My Birthday is on September the 4th. Am I able to get a Birthday Button or not? What is the policy? I figure that since technically I will be back in Chicago, by the time my birthday comes, I am not entitled to a button. My grandson agrees with this assumption. He says, what I say. I miss it, by one day.

    Celebrating a birthday at a Disney Theme Park is not new to me. I celebrated my 50th Birthday at WDW. I didn't know about the button thing however. So I don't have that souvenir.

    Birthdays at Disney. Comments, anyone?
    My Next WDW Vacation is Aug 18, 2014 - Aug 23, 2014

    You just have to ask for it. As far as I know you aren't limited to celebrating your birthday on the actual date. The CM at the check in desk urged me to wear my button the entire trip!

    Barbarann go for it. You are celebrating your birthday while you are out there right? Going to Disneyland is party of the celebration. I mean if it isn't go ahead! So what if you miss it by one actual day. Go for it anyway! Have a wonderful time. Do I ever wish I was going for my birthday.

    Make sure you wear your birhday button (or sticker) when you visit the tortilla factory at DCA. You will get a dozen fresh tortillas just for the asking! They are yummy!

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    And if it's not your birthday... stop by the Mad Hatter's Tea Cups and have a very merry un-birthday!

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    And make sure, after you get your sticker, that you take that phone call!

    If you go to BB or Storyteller's for dinner, dessert will be on the house.

    Go for it. There's no rule. If you were going in September and your birthday was in April, then yeah, I'd think that was weird. But a day, even a week or two, no biggie.

    BTW, I have a birthday page posted that you might find useful. The only change is that most of the merchandise at the cart outside Plaza Inn is no longer available. Otherwise, have a great trip!

    Re: Birthday Button or Not?

    I had a BAD time at the Plaza Inn for my birthday. Let's just say I had to request a birthday sticker when it was already on my reservation slip. When I took my boyfriend for his birthday to Storytellers, he got cake, a song, and he felt special.

    Maybe I'm bitter, but no more birthdays at DL for me.
    Took mom to Disneyland for the first time in over 20 years this week! Woo!

    Re: Birthday Button or Not?

    Vic and I recently took a friend to Disneyland for her birthday. When you get off the tram, head directly for the Grand Californian Hotel. Go to Guest Relations and ask for a birthday pin. You'll get one, no questions asked. You'll also be treated very nicely!

    You can only get the pin at the hotel. The Main St. Town Hall can give you a paper sticker. Go to the hotel and get a nice permanent reminder of your special day.

    If the Lily Belle is on the tracks, courteously ask if you can have a ride. You MAY get the thrill of a lifetime. ...or you may not. It doesn't hurt to ask nicely, though.

    Our friend was wished a Happy Birthday many, many times by friendly CMs.

    Have a great day!
