Is Walt Disney World Free on Your Birthday?
By Dave Shute
As many as two dozen people a day come to this site with some version of “Is Disney free on your birthday?” as the words they entered into a search engine.
Here’s the bad news: there used to be a deal where Disney World offered free tickets on your birthday. But there isn’t one anymore. Disney world tickets are the same price on your birthday as they are on any other day.
DISNEY WORLD BIRTHDAY SPECIALS
But there are still some fun birthday offers from Disney World, and some of them are free!
Free Disney World birthday stuff includes:
- A happy birthday button (see the image at the top, courtesy of Kristin’s Tips from the Disney Diva), which you can get either from your Disney World resort hotel or from guest services in the parks. Mike at My Dreams of Disney reminds me that Disney strictly enforces when you can get this free birthday button–it must be within 6 months before, or 6 months after, your birthday!
- A happy birthday call–dial 0 in your resort to schedule it
- Perhaps, a happy birthday cupcake as the finale to a Disney World table service meal.
- And of course you can bring birthday celebration materials from home!
OTHER WALT DISNEY WORLD BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS
Much more celebration of birthdays at Walt Disney World is possible–but not for free.
