Celebrating a birthday? Maybe it’s someone’s first trip or you are celebrating an anniversary. Whatever your celebration is make sure to check with the front desk, or at Guest Services in the parks, and get a button to wear to show what you are celebrating.
These buttons are free and avaiable to all guests. The 1st Visit and Birthday buttons are probably the ones you will see most in the parks, but they also have buttons for those that were just married. If you have a celebration that is not represented on the buttons just ask for a general Celebrating button and you can write what you are celebrating on the button. I’ve seen people with the general Celebrating button and they have written in their celebration as being cancer-free…those are the best pins I’ve seen in the parks!
The buttons will bring attention to the wearers from cast members and other guests, which is fun and is a good conversation starter with people you might otherwise not talk to. During the last trip we got each of the kids the 1st Visit buttons and they were ecstatic anytime anyone noticed their pin.
Sometimes, if you are wearing a Birthday button the wearer will get surprised with a dessert from a restaurant where they are dining. This, however, is not a guarantee and should not be expected. I’ve heard of people expecting free desserts at restaurants just because they are wearing a pin. It’s at the cast member’s discretion and I’m betting the nicer and less greedy people are the better you chances are at a nice surprise.
During our next trip my husband and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and I’m definitely getting a button. I love that Disney offers these buttons and I hope they always do. It’s just another magical touch that they add to your vacation!
