I concur. In addition to the aforementioned Goofy phonecalls, my gf and I also received: free desert from Canada's booth at the F&WF, free dessert from Casey's corner at Magic Kingdom, surprise Italian-rendition of Happy Birthday at Alfredo's, miniature cakes at the Garden Grill and Liberty Tree Tavern, a "signed" photo of Mickey inside a birthday card left in my room, and a voice mail from Mickey and Minnie when I got back to the room that night.

birthday call from Mickey
I went to WDW for my birthday and a cast member saw my special birthday pin. He asked me to answer this phone and Mickey had a birthday message for me. Was a special treat for the day.

I just read all 54 pages of this thread, there are some awesome things I will be looking for when I got in 11 days!
A couple tips
Try to be around a talking tree, trashcan ect when there are no kids around. They can be pretty mean (which is really funny if you are there with a group of friends).
Someone else mentioned this, but if something goes wrong, tell someone! For this next trip we had a reservation at one of the Japanese restaurant and last week my boyfriend got a call that it would be closed and we could call for reservations somewhere else and would get a priority. We called a little later and he mentioned that we were disappointed about it (I was REALLY looking forward to it) and they are giving us VIP viewing for Illuminations that night!

I dont know if this known but when you go on Pirates in Disney World the you can use both right and left lines to get to the ride. Alot of people think the right side is only for fastpass but its not, I've used both lines and never got told anything.

I cant wait till WDW in Summer 08!

Anyone who believes that deserves to wait in a long line... Pirates isn't a FastPass attraction.

Hello y'all. I really enjoy reading everyone's mesages and can feel the Disney love....it's awesome!
In October, my husband I are taking our son for his first time and to celebrate his 1st birthday at WDW. You have no idea how excited, nervous, and tickled to death we both are. I have jotted down all the secrets and hidden stuff and now it's just countdown.
I am open to any suggestions on taking a little one to WDW. My husband and I have always gone to DL, so this is our first time to to WDW. I was 8 last time I went, so I know a lot has changed in 20 years, but I'm ready.....bring it on Mickey Take care y'all.

My friends and I went to WDW last year with their almost-toddler as well. Their number one tip is to make use of the Baby Care centers. There's one in each park. They have supplies and food and formula for sale, rooms for nursing, play areas for the older siblings, and are also just great air-conditioned places to sit down for a bit. The one in the Magic Kingdom is at the end of Main St, near the Crystal Palace. At Epcot, it's in the Odyssy building near the walkway from Future World to World Showcase, at MGM right near the turnstyles, adjacent to First Aid, and in the Animal Kingdom, on Discovery Island, to the left of the Tree of Life.

have a snugli?
If you have a carrier (snugli or baby bjorg type), bring it along. They don't allow strollers in some of the ride lines, and you'll have to carry the little one. We didn't bring it the first time and ended up waiting in line for 25 min carriying our 20 lbs son. DH's arms almost fell off. I had brought mine for our daughter, so I was okay.

Do they make them for babies as big as 24lbs? He turned 1 this past August 1st, so by october I'm sure he will be way on his way up on the weigh scale
But I'm going to look into that, great idea. He is a heavy and scwermy little guy Thanks a bunch.

My first secret of WDW is prob the Grand Floridian Cafe. Awesome breakfast. It is basically a sit-down buffet where you are served family style plus it is a character meal with the Mad Hatter, Alice, Pooh, Tigger & Mary Poppins. If you gun for a Sunday Morning reservation at about 8/8:30 you should not have a problem as me and my family were able to do this the Wednesday of the trip.

Hi All! I am new to this website but let me say I love this thread! So many helpful tips and secrets, especially since we leave in 82 days (not that I'm counting or anything). I need some help though, my 6 year old is desperate to see Princess Aurora when we go or she will "be very disappointed in Mr Disney and his world!". Any suggestions on if and when she is around? I have booked the Princess Story Book Dinner in EPCOT but they can't confirm she'll be there or not. Thanks!
