    I'm trying to convince my dad to go on his 50th this year. It's also a milestone year for me (30) my brother (21) and my grandfather (75).

      If you can afford the GCH, you're richer than I!

      How about the Fantasmic Dessert Buffet at the Disney Gallery Balcony? Or maybe one of the special tours, like A Walk in Walt's Footsteps?

        I would vote for Fantasmic! buffet also. Also, I would think a nice dinner at Blue Bayou, preferrably at a waterside table would be wonderful! How about possiblity getting a conceirge level room at the GCH? And make sure and give the phone number to hubby so he can call and arrange something fun for your birthday Spa treatment at the GCH sounds good to me too

          I vote for the Spa treatment at the GC, too. I got it for my wife twice and she loved it both times.

          For dinner, my favorites in the resort are BB and Napa Rose -- both are great for a special occasion.
          Disneyland allows me to escape the everyday stresses and routines of a Southern Californian resident.

          California Adventure brings me right back to the place I was trying to avoid in the first place.

            What ever you do, try to keep your group small! I went last month for my birthday, and I had 24 people with me. It was very hard keeping everyone together, and even harder cause the park was busy.

            Other than that, it was a blast! We took up a whole boat on Pirates. The Cast Member almost thought I was joking when I said how many people I had!

            Oh and get a Happy Birthday sticker at City Hall or from a ticket booth. Everybody and their mother will wish you well on your happy day!

                What this about a Fantasmic dessert buffet? Never heard of it. Do you have to make reservations? Is it only done on certain nights? More info please, sounds great!

                it's what they are like in their HEART!

                  I think it's about $50 per person. Call guest relations to make reservations...I think 30 days in advance? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
                  Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
                  Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
                  Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
                  Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
                  Marge: Pink.
                  Homer: D'oh!
                  Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

                      Is this how you get those seats they have set out and rpoed off for some viewers of Fantasmic? Or are those a different matter altogether?

                        Yes. I think before they used to have it up on the Gallery balcany...?

                          they still do it up in the balcony of the Disney Gallery. There's a roped off area on the ground for CMs and their friends/family. They don't serve desert there, and it's ground seating though.

                            Balcony for Fantasmic!

                            I did the balcony seating for Fanstasmic the last weekend in January. It was $53. The view was fanstastic and the desserts were to die for. It was definately worth every penny, especially not having to sit for hours for a good view of the show.

                              A Birthday Dinner at The Napa Rose would be a great Idea! The food is amazing, the service impeccable and they love to help you celebrate that special occasion with a decadent dessert somehow personalized to the occasion! I have celebrated an anniversary there and would have to say it was wonderful!

                                I think dinner at the Napa Rose sounds like a great idea since I havent eaten there before .It has come highly recomended but somehow we have just never gotten there. Then one night the Fantasmic Dessert buffet ( my hubby will like that he wasnt there when I went last year) Then lets see a birthday badge , yes you get a lot of happy birthdays that way, probably will help with riding in the monarail cab and driving the Mark Twain. The conceige level at the GC and spa treatment I will have to leave major hints for. And then theres the shopping for my present while there .Also the roped off area at Fantasmic also has reserved seating, fold up chairs , with a box type dessert friends of mine did it over the summer, its a little less expensive than the balcony seating.
                                I originally saw fantasmic years ago when the actually let a small number of people on the balcony, you had to wait in the staiway in the pcs of 8 store for hours , no reservations then, no cost and no dessert buffet. After that viewing of Fantasmic I was spoiled I did not watch the entire show for years until last summer when I did the balcony dessert buffett ...its a whole different show experience up there. Highly recomended...the food was fantastic and the service was also great. High up on my DL experiences.

                                  I'm turning 20 and my dad is turning 50 - I think my dad is getting cranky and sedentary enough that if I manage to get the family to go to DL this year, it'll be our last trip as a whole family for a long time. I still haven't decided whether to ask it of them, though...it's a tall order for a family of 5 with no kids, especially when only one of them is truly interested in the trip. Still, I'm thinking about proposing a family thing. I think it'll have to depend on what my plans are for summer and fall. So, you know, for some of us with significant birthdays, it's a question of whether, not what. I wish my dad were up to walking at DL all day but I have a feeling he isn't.

                                    I dont know about your dad , but I too as a 50, hopefully not to "cranky and sedentary" become like 18 again when i enter the park , plan for the trip, check in at the hotel.....I guess I really brought into the line about for of who are young at heart...Dl is my land. My 19 and 24 year old cant keep up with me!They swear they see some renewed cosmic energy raditate from me and laugh . The funny thing is that when staying for multiple days I only get one daughter a night till closing of the park ..its like they draw straws to see who will accompany mom tonight. I swear I will be ok all by myself ...but someone always feels obligated to stay with me, like I am going to get lost in DL.But some of the best evenings I have had one on one with each daughter have been a late DL one

                                      Yeah, spend some money! From what I saw of the celebration plans, they're spending it all in the wrong places, namely the other theme parks, and entertainmentwise at the flagship park, it's all on the cheap! I happen to know people who I've worked closely with who are really making a concerted effort to do a good job, but the ideas either get axed, or the credit goes to someone else. That's not fair!. I do have to hand it to Matt Oimett though; he's trying. I'm rooting for you Matt!

                                        oooo, you are sooo lucky- there are sooo many good ideas out there. Make sure you stop by guest services and tell them its your birthday. They will give you a sticker so that every CM who sees you will wish you a happy birthday- who knows, they may do something a little extra since you will be 50!

                                        If its possible, you could try and get a reservation to club 33 if you know a member (or maybe someone on these boards knows a member who can make the reservation on your behalf) Sometimes you can also find reservations for sale on ebay for a private party- I would say that would be the ULTIMATE way to celebrate!
