Disney Celebration Buttons, A Fun Freebie!

Walt Disney World is wonderful at making guests feel like they are the extra special, especially when they are visiting for a special occasion. And, as far as Disney is concerned, any day at Walt Disney World can be a special occasion! One of the most popular “freebies” offered by Disney are complimentary celebration buttons. There are nine choices available:
  1. Happy Birthday
  2. My Magical Triumph
  3. Family Reunion
  4. Just Engaged
  5. 1st Visit
  6. Happily Ever After – great for any romantic occasion
  7. Just Married
  8. Happy Anniversary
  9. I’m Celebrating – a generic pin for any celebration

Buttons are available at Disney resorts and in the parks at Vacation Planning Booths, guests services and other locations. Cast members will have sharpies and can personalize any of the buttons for your special occasion.

We got our kids 1st Visit buttons on their first trips. On our last trip, we were given one of each by a very energetic cast member. (I’m not sure why we needed them all, but he was excited to share and we never say no to a freebie at Disney!)

Along with being fun and a great souvenir, the pins mean extra attention from cast members. Any who see you will wish you a happy anniversary, happy birthday or offer congratulations on you special occasion. You may even get a bonus birthday cupcake or special treat. They are great fun!

What are you celebrating on your next trip?

    We’ll be celebrating DH’s 39th Bday, DD’s 16th Bday, M-I-L’s 1st trip (& first real vacation ever) and last but certainly not least, Mother’s day.

  • We will be there in June and celebrating my husbands birthday the first day we are there, my son’s 3rd birthday the last day we are there, and my oldest son’s birthday is just a few weeks after!

    When we went to Disneyland we got the first visit button! When employees saw it, we got to jump to the front of the line on a couple of rides. Got a personal escort to a ride we were looking for & she put us at the front of the line when we got there! It was pretty awesome & totally unexpected!!!

    I am going to be celebrating my Dad coming home from Iraq after a year of him being gone! I am really looking forward to getting a button because I feel like it is a way to brag about it. : D Plus it will be nice to get stuff from CM.

    We are going to WDW in March to celebrate my daughter’s graduation from college in May and my son’s graduation from college 2 years ago. I don’t see a button for a graduation but I imagine the generic one will work for us.

  • I’ve heard of Disney having ‘Graduation’ buttons – but usually only in May/June. I tried to get one this past September for my sister-in-law and they didn’t have any. So she wore the generic ‘I’m celebrating!’ button.

    We will be celebrating our granddaughters 9th birthday there on June 1 and our 32nd wedding anniversary June 4. We will also have our younger granddaughter with us and her 4th birthday isn’t till sept but we will be celebrating her unbirthday. I wish they had a button for that.

    My daughter lost a tooth while in line for princess pics on the cruise and guess what a CM presented her with…. “I lost a tooth!” First time I’d seen that one!
