    Best signature restaurant to celebrate a 16-year-old son's birthday?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Keith!

    There is no better way to celebrate a birthday than with a little pixie dust.  I am so excited to hear your son can blow out his birthday candles this year at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    My family recently celebrated at Topolino's Terrace, the new rooftop dining location at Disney's Riviera Resort.  A sunset dinner here is a great backdrop for a more sophisticated birthday celebration.  With some great timing, you can even watch the nighttime shows at EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios from the outdoor patio!  Let your server know you are celebrating, and you may get some candles on the best birthday cake ever, Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake!  After dinner, walk through this beautiful resort and visit the incredible mosaic art located near the station for the Disney Skyliner.  Since you are already there, take a ride over to the Epcot station and end the birthday evening strolling along Disney's Boardwalk!

    If your birthday boy is adventurous when it comes to cuisine, Tiffins Restaurant, located inside Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, is another great choice.  This gives you an option within one of the theme parks, with upscale dining and delicious, unique dishes!  You can make reservations as part of a Rivers of Light: We Are One Dining Package to treat him to an amazing view of this nighttime spectacular that is more stunning than any candles on a cake!

    Consider a specialty cake or in-room celebration from Disney Floral and Gifts to add a little surprise to your birthday trip.  These makers of the magic can even customize a gift or cake with your son's favorite Disney pal, film or park!

    A happy early birthday to your Mouseketeer, Keith!  They grow up so fast!  Enjoy every magical moment together during your vacation.  Please visit us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you need any additional help planning this special getaway!

    See ya real soon!  Angie
