    My best friend and I are coming in September my son and her daughter are turning 5 while they are down there. What is special to do on their birthday? I know there are plenty of things for girls, what about for boys? Any boy specials?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Catherine!

    I can't think of a better place to celebrate a 5th birthday than Disney World! Be sure to pick up a "Happy Birthday" button for both of them at your resort or any theme park Guest Relations location. Its a great way to draw attention to their special day.

    Book a character meal. When making any advanced dining reservations (ADRs), be sure to mention that you'll be celebrating 2 birthdays. You can request a celebration cake when you arrive for any ADRs. You can also order a special birthday cake by calling 407-827-2253. ADRs are required & cakes must be ordered at least 48 hours prior to your reservation.

    For a personal touch, contact the Disney Floral & Gifts Department. They can help with an in-room celebration or a special delivery to a dining location. Visit them online at or call them at 407-WDW-GIFT.

    Okay, now some boy suggestions. Pirates are always a favorite at that age. Click here for some pirate themed suggestions.

    If he loves Star Wars, you could plan to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios (DHS) & check out their Star Wars themed attractions:
    * Jedi Training Academy - click here for more info.
    * Star Tours
    * Visit Tatooine Traders located next to Star Tours. You'll find awesome Star Wars merchandise & guests can build their own lightsabers. You can also do this at Once Upon A Toy at Downtown Disney.

    Wishing you minnie magical birthday memories :-) Allison
