Walt Disney World Resort

Birthdays Are Extra-Special With Celebrations at
Walt Disney World Resort

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Whether honoring a birthday or -- as celebrated in the classic Disney animated film, "Alice in Wonderland," -- an UN-birthday, Walt Disney World Resort is celebration central 365 days a year. No matter what the fantasy -- a romantic twilight cruise, a mid-day escape to Neverland or a splash-tacular slide down a ski slope -- the magic-makers at Disney can create the perfect celebration.

Guests of all ages can book a Celebration Cruise that lets them set sail on Disney's waterways aboard a pontoon boat with stereo options and a VIP viewing of a fireworks spectacular -- either "Illuminations: Reflections of Earth" at Epcot or "Wishes" at Magic Kingdom. Themed decorations, including a banner and balloons, a personalized cake, snacks and drinks, are included in the party package ($220 for 10 adults; 407/WDW-BDAY for more information).

The party-planning experts on the Walt Disney World Resort Sales team can turn one spark of imagination into a fully-themed creative bash with detailed decor and entertainment. A "Villain" party at Disney-MGM Studios might feature a crypt entrance, an eerie Tower of Terror bellhop host and gifts sent by favorite Disney villains. An "Under the Sea" party might include appearances by characters from Disney's animated classic "The Little Mermaid," a band playing Disney songs and a "bubble cave" party space lit in deep-water blue with ocean sound effects.
