    Just booked our first family vacation! Staying at Disney's Art of Animation in July for our daughter's 6th birthday. We also have an 8 year old son. What are some special Disney requests we can ask for to make this extra special?

    Hello, Jennifer! It sounds like you've got a very special vacation in the works. You get to celebrate your birthday girl and a first Disney vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Make sure to pick up a complimentary "Happy Birthday!" button from Guest Services at any of the theme parks to celebrate your birthday princess. This will help the Cast Members to recognize your daughter's special day, and she may even receive some extra attention when visiting with her favorite Disney Characters! While you are there, you can also pick up a "First Visit" button for your son so that he receives special recognition for his first visit, too.

    Before your vacation, visit Disney Floral & Gifts to create a personalized In-Room Celebrations package for your Disney Resort hotel room. The Dream Makers are available to create beautiful floral arrangements, gift baskets and more to give your princess the royal treatment.

    One of my favorite ways to celebrate a special occasion is to visit one of the many fabulous Character Dining locations at the Walt Disney World Resort. I highly recommend making Advance Dining Reservations for the meals that you wish to experience. Make sure to note your daughter's birthday in your reservation to let the Cast Members know that you are there to celebrate.

    I hope that you and your family have a very special visit to Walt Disney World, Jennifer! If you need some help adding even more pixie dust to your celebration, please don't hesitate to reach out to me here at the Moms Panel. Happy planning!
