February is my birthday month, I turn 33 in two days…eeeeekkkkk, and so I thought this would be a great time to share with you 5 reasons to celebrate your birthday McDonalds Style!!!
ONE. Bradley Cooper’s favorite birthday memory ever was celebrating at McDonalds before hitting up the Jersey Shore with his family. It’s Bradley Cooper, need I say more?
THREE. Food. Who doesn’t love McDonalds food?? You can choose between the many Happy Meal options for your child’s party…hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chicken nuggets, french fries, apple slices, cuties (when in season), yogurt, chocolate milk, white milk, apple juice, or soda. Yes, you read that right, McDonalds is currently offering cuties as an option in Happy Meals now! YUM!
FOUR. Games. The wonderful McDonalds employees have all sorts of tricks up their sleeves and games for kids to play!! Are you a pro burger box stacker?? Get ready to test those skills and see what you are made of!!
FIVE. Party hats!! Nothing screams it’s my birthday!!!!! like a fun party hat!!

Growing up I ALWAYS wanted a McDonald’s birthday party! I never got one, but want to do my kids party there one of these years.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
My kids had at least one of their birthday parties at McDonald’s. I love that it was fun, food was great (kids loved it) and it was stress free for me. Maybe the grandchildren should also have their birthday parties there!
Amanda Farris says
Loved the old pictures! Precious!
This totally brings me back to my childhood! A friend of mine had a birthday party at McDonald’s and to this day that is the one birthday party I remember the most.

I can trace at least half of ALL of my best childhood memories back to McDonald’s. Good times.
I remember celebrating so many birthdays at McDonald’s. Those are some of my fondest moments. I love those parties.
This is awesome!! I bet so many kids would love this with how much MCD has evolved!
My son asking me to celebrate his 4th birthday in Mcdonalds. When i was young i love going to Mcdonalds
Those are great memories. My kids always requested for a McDonalds birthday party when they were younger.
I’ve attended several birthday parties at McDonald’s back in the Philippines. My nieces and nephews had their birthday celebrations there when they were little. Kids love birthday parties at McDonald’s!

I think everyone has either had a McDonalds birthday or knows someone who has had a McDonalds birthday! Feel like it’s tradition.

Parties at McDonald’s are always fun and kids love it here. We’ve attended quite a number of parties at McDonald’s last year and it’s always a blast.

What?–McDonalds has cake? How have I never known this?! We have a few birthday parties at Mcd’s but never not once have they offered cake to us! Maybe it is certain franchises and depending on your area?
Ann Bacciaglia says
My kids loved having birthday party’s at McDonald’s. It was always fun for the kids and i liked that i did not have to handle the clean up.
Paula Schuck says
McDonald’s is a great place to have a birthday party. The big playroom is perfect to burn some energy off for the kids.
Omg I remember mc Donald’s birthday parties were THE THING when I was younger!!!! Always had so much fun at mc Donald’s parties!
I think having your kid’s birthday party at McDonalds is a great idea. The kids can laugh, eat and have fun in a place that they typically enjoy anyways.
Crystal Lopez says
How cute are these old photos! I remember McDonald’s being such a hit as a kid. It is a great place for birthdays!
Bonnie @wemake7 says
Those older pictures are so cute! I always wanted to have my birthday party there but it never happened when I was kiddo. I made sure to have my kiddos there though when they were younger.
I think I have when I was a child. Sounds like a great idea to celebrate kid’s birthday at McDonalds
April Mims says
My kids have both had birthday parties at McDonald’s when they were little. Seeing the throwback pictures reminded me of all the parties I went to there as a child.
I actually never knew that they had birthday cake, but that is awesome! I wonder why this hasn’t’ been made known more!!!
I always wanted a birthday party at McDonalds as a kid. I never even thought that they still had them! Very cool option.
