    We are bringing my son for his 5th birthday in January it's his second time to visit. I am wanting to do a special birthday dinner with a cake. What would be a good restaurant for us to visit will they do anything special like singing.

    Hello, Julie!

    One of my favorite restaurants to celebrate my Mouseketeer's birthday is Chef Mickey's. We have celebrated multiple times, and I always note in our dining reservation and follow up when we check in at the podium that we are observing his big day. Most visits they brought him a birthday button and a cupcake, but on one visit Chef Mickey Mouse brought out his special surprise and a card signed by all the characters. My little Mouseketeer's eyes swelled up when he saw his favorite character with a delicious treat just for him! 

    While my family loves both the breakfast and brunch buffet, the dinner buffet is our favorite meal when celebrating a birthday. The buffet offers a good mix of entrees that appeal to an adult pallet and to those who are more "selective" about food. Be sure to save room for dessert! There are so many choices you may find that you need to make a few trips to the dessert bar to try everything. 

    You are welcome to bring your own cake (providing it does not require refrigeration), or you can Customize your Celebration with a special cake. Consider giving the folks at the Cake Hotline a call to order a dessert that is sure to reflect your Mouseketeer's style that will be delivered right to your table. Please note at least 72 hours notice is required for custom creations. 

    I hope this helps with your planning! Please let us know if you have additional questions as you plan your celebration trip!

    Have a magical day!
