When you let someone at Disney World know it's your birthday, they will give you a birthday button to wear. When you do, magical things can happen. No promises that you will have all your birthday wishes come true, but wearing your button will at least better your odds!
Often times a person wearing a birthday button will be surprised with a free birthday cupcake at lunch or dinner. If someone in your party is celebrating a birthday, let your server know just in case the button wasn't noticed.
All of the Disney Cast Members--and a lot of guests, too--will wish you a happy birthday whenever they see your button. It's a little thing, but it makes you feel special when total strangers take a moment to send you a birthday wish.
Birthdays mean getting older but at Walt Disney World, everyone is a kid. So wear your button proudly because while you may be a year older, you will feel at least 10 years younger while you are in the parks.
Wearing a birthday button sets you apart from the crowd. You might get a magical little moment because of wearing it. (Example: During the afternoon parade, Cinderella once pointed directly at my son and mouthed "Happy Birthday".)
If you are wearing your birthday button, a cast member just might invite you to cut to the front of a line, be in a parade or do something else that is super special. Wearing your button doesn't guarantee it, but wearing it doesn't hurt.
