  • 3 Year Olds Birthday at Disneyland ???'s

    My daughters 3rd birthday is coming up in May and we were thinking of having it at Goofy's Kitchen. I've read about several of you having your kids parties at different places but I still don't know what's best.
    Here are a few things I need to keep in mind:
    1. Family will be there. Nobody except my wife and I have AP's and I don't know if they'd all be willing to buy a ticket for the day.
    2. If they are willing to buy a ticket, what is best for a big family and a 3 year old to go to for her birthday?
    3. If any of you can give me prices, that would help a lot!!!
    4. Any experiences or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks ahead of time!

    If you are inviting people to Disneyland for a birthday party, then you should pay for entry tickets.

    Pick someplace else.

      Agreed.

      Really, the birthday offerings for a 3 year old at Disneyland are pretty overrated. The Plaza Inn party is probably the best suited for a little one that age, but I hear the cake tastes like satan.

      My opinion as a parent is that most of the birthday doings at the park or hotels are more appropriate for a child who is 5 or older.

      There are LOTS of other options where your whole family can enjoy without feeling pressured to buy a Disneyland ticket, and your little one will have a great time.

        Buying the tickets is the main reason why we have never had my daughters birthday there with family. We felt that we should pay for them if we invited them.

        But just our immediate family celebrates birthdays there. A special lunch or dinner that we would not usually do. And those tubs with the cake and trinkets inside. We let my daughter wear her princess dress on her birthday!

          If you do Goofy's, you don't have to go into Disneyland, but you get a nice Disneyland experience, anyway.

          We did my three daughter's fifth birthdays at Goofy's. It's a good time, good buffet, lots of characters and attention.

          You can bring your own cake and balloons if you want. What they supply is a little lame for the money. For our oldest, we actually bought the birthday party package with a cake...it cost us an extra $100 at the time (7 years ago). :lol:

          For our youngest, we bought the $5 party bag add-on for her. Another waste of money, but it came with a Goofy's pen and she still has it a year later, so maybe it wasn't such a waste.

          Edited to add: Also, a 3 year old's birthday is still kind of about the adults who will be there...so think about the adults you're inviting. Will they enjoy it? At three, the kids do have fun, but get overwhelmed by the attention and the environment.

            Isn't Goofy's Kitchen at the hotel and wouldn't require a ticket purchase?
            Be controversial

            Be outspoken

              Believe me, I would if I could but I just can't.
              Not to mention there's no way my family would allow my wife or I to do that. They wouldn't accept the tickets.
              And when I say family, I'm talking 30 people.

              We've thrown some huge parties not only for my daughter but for my nieces and nephews and for holidays. I always go all out on them. (Harry Potter, 80s, Carnival, etc, etc.) This year we wanted to take her out instead of having it at home like every other party.

              I know there's other stuff to do and in the long run that's probably what we'll end up doing anyway. I just wanted to hear some of your opinions.
              Thanks!

                Yes, that's why we wanted to take her there in the first place.

                  You get a discount with your AP....that helps.

                      You're right about a 3 year olds birthday. It is about the adults and the older kids still. There's a total of 12 kids in the family and they range from 1 (my youngest daughter) to 12. They would all enjoy Goofy's Kitchen I think.

                        Take her there and to D'land.

                        AND have a big family party someplace else and some other time.

                        My wife's family (huge as well) will do small birthday get-togethers during the week (more immediate family, G-parents at most) and incorporate birthday festivities at weekly Sunday dinner (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.)

                        You could try group sales. Some kind of discount might be available.

                        One problem I see is that when the meal is over, and you say, "Well, we're taking <little princess> to Disneyland," and then there's some awkward silence or uncomfortable good-bye's.

                          Those good-bye's don't sound fun and I definitely don't want that.

                            I'd love to see the bill for a party of 30 at Goofy's Kitchen!

                            I wouldn't want to PAY it, just see it...

                            Good luck!
