How to make your birthday in Disney even COOLER

A birthday is an important day. What better way to spend it than at Walt Disney World?! Back in April, we celebrated my brother’s birthday in Disney, and it was truly a magical time! Disney has a way of making you feel like royalty when you’re celebrating something BIG like a birthday.

When I think of celebrating in Walt Disney World, I think of their celebration buttons that are available at Guest Services in the front of any park! While this button is known to come with perks, on our latest trip to Disney I discovered another birthday surprise opportunity!

One of our must do’s when we visit Epcot is Club Cool. Who doesn’t love enjoying sodas from around the world? Doesn’t hurt that it’s free either. In addition to the soda tasting stations, this is the place to get Coca Cola products.

As my mom, brother, and I were trying out the flavors, we were approached by a cast member who informed us that Kevin could get a FREE Frozen Coke since it was his birthday! Anyone that knows us, knows that Frozen Cokes are our absolute favorite! What made this extra magical, was that the cast member surprised us with THREE FREE Frozen Cokes! We were all able to enjoy this frozen treat together. This was our last day in the parks, so we were thrilled to be sprinkled with a little Disney magic on our way out of Orlando!

So, next time you’re visiting Epcot and it is someone’s birthday in your party, play it cool and surprise them with the perfect frozen treat! Make them try Beverly first, of course, but after that they celebrate with a Frozen Coke!

What’s an extra special Disney experience you’ve had while celebrating in the parks?
