    Birthday Cakes and Special day Son's 5th birthday we will be at the parks. how to go about making it extra special.

    Hi Samantha, thanks for stopping by with your question.
    I am glad to hEAR you have chosen the happiest place on Earth to celebrate your son’s birthday. He will make memories that will last for a lifetime.
    I highly recommend you make a reservation for a Character Dining Experience to make this day extra special. Chef Mickey’s, located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is an amazing experience. Mickey Mouse and some of his friends will visit your table for photos and autographs.
    If you prefer an experience at a Disney Theme Park, I suggest Tusker House Restaurant, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. While you dine, you will have an encounter with Donald Duck and some of his friends wearing their safari outfits. Character Dining Experiences are very popular, advance reservations are strongly recommended and can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit.
    You can order a special birthday cake to be delivered to the restaurant of your preference. He would have a pleasant surprise!
    Hope this helps your planning. Please, come back again if you have further questions.
    Have a wonderful day!
    Gina V.

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
