    Question DL special touches on your birthday

    OTHER than the best gift of all for your birthday, being AT Disneyland have I missed any of those special touches that are possible when you go on your birthday? (actual or, like Presidents' Day, celebrated).

    - If an AP holder, the sound effect at the entrance gate that's different on your birthday (haven't heard it myself, saw a discussion here about it)

    - The BUTTON of course, announcing to all how special you are (because you ARE!!) at City Hall, Guest Relations, or (stores?)

    - The nice birthday wishes from CM's who see the button and realize how very special you are...

    ...if they've been on payroll more than a few days.

    - On rides with CM microphones (like Dumbo) the possibility of having them announce your birthday

    - Possible birthday dessert at a restaurant

    - Rare but possible singling out by furry but more so face character

    - No guarantees, of course, other than a Happy Time for your birthday!!

    Miss anything?

    Re: DL special touches on your birthday

    One of the best we ever had is when it was my son's 6th birthday and we were riding in the back of the Monorail, as we pulled in they sang Happy Birthday to him over the loud speaker. It was great

    Re: DL special touches on your birthday

    I've had nothing but good birthdays at Disneyland the last 2 years. All except for one time when I tried to get my bithday button last year the CM told me I was lying and I wasn't turning 18. He meant it too, he wasn't joking. He asked to see my ID to which I refused because that's rude. I should've complained.

    Re: DL special touches on your birthday

    if you catch a knowledgable cast member they get goofy to call you and sing happy birthday, I don't know if they still do this, but the CM at the rubber snake store in Adventureland did it for me when I turned 16
    Is this haunted signature
    actually
    stretching?


    Or is it your imagination, hmm?

    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...

    Re: DL special touches on your birthday

    I've never been to DL on my birthday, but I know you can get the birthday button at more than just City Hall or Guest Relations, like at Plaza Inn's birthday cart. And we do have all the different buttons at Rancho del Zocalo, too, so you could probably get them anywhere... or something like that.

    I get the call from Goofy too at City Hall. One time it happened in ToonTown. On the Storybookland Canal Boats I get sung to.

    That's so cool, also because it would have been so unexpected by him, a nice birthday surprise!!

    You can find the birthday buttons pretty much anywhere. We've got stashes of all the buttons at both the Jungle Cruise and the Opera House.
