This was actually our second time hosting a birthday party in a WDW resort lobby. If you were following back in February we had my 30th birthday at Riviera Resort!
Rule number 1: To throw a WDW party you need to be a guest of that particular resort.
I recommend ordering online 3-4 days in advance. Make sure you select the Kissimmee store for delivery. You’ll be able to select a 2 hour delivery window at checkout.
Don’t know your resort address? You can find the exact address on your “my plans” page in the Walt Disney World app.
Both our party cakes have come from The Naked Cupcake. I recommend ordering at least 6 weeks in advance if you want a custom design. They delivery to Walt Disney World and allow you to choose a 2 hour window. You can use code “mouseears” to save 10% on a custom cake order from The Naked Cupcake. Order here!
So how does it actually work? Well we pick a 2 hour window and set everything up to arrive during that time. Your friends will be able to come visit on at the resort. They just give your name and room number at the gate.
We always tell the lobby cast members what we plan to do, you can’t reserve a section of the lobby, but all the CM’s have been amazing at finding us a great spot to celebrate.
I always bring party items with me, but if you’re not local it may be easier to order plates, napkins, candles, utensils, etc from Party City. They will deliver it all! Don’t forget a cake knife and a lighter. (We always forget the lighter).
If you have a WDW birthday celebration tag me! I’d love to see it!
