    It does seem rather cheap to not offer free birthday tickets. We drove all the way from Indiana time Orlando when I was a kid and people come from a lot farther than that. You’d think they’d reward your loyalty. Not to mention you probably aren’t usually going to come by yourself.

    Disney is a corporation. At the end of the day, profits are all the the CEO’s care bout. A 100.00 ticket and all you get is a button and a call from mocked that’s pre-recorded? I’ll pass and go to Busch gardens.

    Is it true that if you have the same birthday as Mickey Mouse, November 18th, you get in free on November 18th?

        Christina, just ask at guest relations, or your hotel if you are staying in a Disney-owned hotel.

      Betty, reservations for Cindy your dates opened at the end of April. It’s one of the two or three most-sought reservation, so likely was largely booked by mid-May. People do cancel, so I’d suggest that you keep trying…

    When people say that Disney is cheap and dont do anything for free that really isnt true. I went last year in september and when i arrived my ankle was a little swollen. I said is the little mermaid room far away from the buses. The cast member at Art of Animation said about 10 minutes. I said do you ever do free upgrades to a room closer to the buses. She looked at my ankle and said you bet! She gave us the much bigger room in the Lion King area with no additional charge. It was right across from the buses and was much bigger.

      Hi you can get them at guest services in any of the parks, or at your hotel if you are staying at a WDW hotel.

    Hey Dave. Just to clarify what you said about getting the birthday button within six months before or after your birthday. My family is going in early August with a bunch of friends, and there are three kids that I know of for sure who have birthdays within 6 months. Does this mean we can get the buttons on whatever day and wear them on whatever day of the trip we want to?

    Thanks!

      Abigail, yes you can get a birthday button just by asking! No ID with an actual birthdate is required 🙂

    We were at Disney Studios in 2009 and I was wearing a birthday button. A cast member working at the ice cream stand near the Rockin’ Roller Coaster noticed it and gave me a free ice cream cone and wished me a happy birthday with the rest of the cast there. It was great.

    The last time my wife wore the Birthday Button around WDW a castmember at Epcot’s American Adventure noticed it.

    He made a big deal of her and said she had an important phone call. He then escorted her to a phone in the entrance to the waiting area for the attraction (to the left). It was a recorded birthday message from Mickey Mouse.

    After the call he escorted her to the LIberty Inn restaurant next door and got a birthday cupcake for her.
