    I'm trying to convince my dad to go on his 50th this year. It's also a milestone year for me (30) my brother (21) and my grandfather (75).

    If you can afford the GCH, you're richer than I!

    How about the Fantasmic Dessert Buffet at the Disney Gallery Balcony? Or maybe one of the special tours, like A Walk in Walt's Footsteps?

    I would vote for Fantasmic! buffet also. Also, I would think a nice dinner at Blue Bayou, preferrably at a waterside table would be wonderful! How about possiblity getting a conceirge level room at the GCH? And make sure and give the phone number to hubby so he can call and arrange something fun for your birthday Spa treatment at the GCH sounds good to me too

    I vote for the Spa treatment at the GC, too. I got it for my wife twice and she loved it both times.

    For dinner, my favorites in the resort are BB and Napa Rose -- both are great for a special occasion.
    Disneyland allows me to escape the everyday stresses and routines of a Southern Californian resident.

    California Adventure brings me right back to the place I was trying to avoid in the first place.

    What ever you do, try to keep your group small! I went last month for my birthday, and I had 24 people with me. It was very hard keeping everyone together, and even harder cause the park was busy.

    Other than that, it was a blast! We took up a whole boat on Pirates. The Cast Member almost thought I was joking when I said how many people I had!

    Oh and get a Happy Birthday sticker at City Hall or from a ticket booth. Everybody and their mother will wish you well on your happy day!

    What this about a Fantasmic dessert buffet? Never heard of it. Do you have to make reservations? Is it only done on certain nights? More info please, sounds great!

    I think it's about $50 per person. Call guest relations to make reservations...I think 30 days in advance? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!

    Is this how you get those seats they have set out and rpoed off for some viewers of Fantasmic? Or are those a different matter altogether?

    they still do it up in the balcony of the Disney Gallery. There's a roped off area on the ground for CMs and their friends/family. They don't serve desert there, and it's ground seating though.

    Balcony for Fantasmic!

    I did the balcony seating for Fanstasmic the last weekend in January. It was $53. The view was fanstastic and the desserts were to die for. It was definately worth every penny, especially not having to sit for hours for a good view of the show.

    A Birthday Dinner at The Napa Rose would be a great Idea! The food is amazing, the service impeccable and they love to help you celebrate that special occasion with a decadent dessert somehow personalized to the occasion! I have celebrated an anniversary there and would have to say it was wonderful!
