Get the birthday buttons from Guest Relations and have him wear them – this will get “happy birthday!” from all CMs, as well as a few extras at restaurants, on rides, etc… . Fun restaurants to celebrate a birthday at are 50’s Prime Time Cafe, Whispering Canyon Cafe, Sci Fi Dine-in (my mom got a free sundae and a happy birthday from the entire restaurant!), and 'Ohana. Also, it may be a bit late for this, but we booked an Illuminations Cruise for my mom’s 62nd. She was completely surprised and overwhelmed! These can be booked as birthday cruises as well. Also, you could call Gifts of a Lifetime and have them coordinate a special birthday surprise for you (www.giftsofalifetime.com).
Be sure to stop by Guest Relations at any park and tell the CM about the birthday – they’ll dial up Goofy for a special birthday greeting!
