    I am bringing my son for his 3rd birthday and will also have my 5yr old son as well and besides dining at the buffet to eat with characters, I want to see what else you all do for children that come for their birthdays. What else can I plan?

    Welcome to planDisney, Lakeitha! I was so excited to see your question, as there is anywhere more magical to celebrate a birthday than Walt Disney World. What a charming gift for your little prince! 

    First, please help your little Mouseketeer to pick up a birthday celebration button from one of the retail locations around the Theme Parks. It'll ensure many a warm birthday greeting as Cast Members have specialized skills to spot and honor such celebrations; you never know what extra magic is headed your way! 

    It sounds like character dining is already on your radar - seeing our kids light up when seeing Winnie the Pooh at The Crystal Palace is a core memory of mine! You can look at all the Character Dining experiences available to see if there's a character you think your sons will particularly love to greet. You can even arrange a special birthday cake delivery at participating Table-Service restaurants - dining reservations open 60 days before arrival.   

    You may also like to book Capture Your Moment - Magic Kingdom. As parents, we often end up behind the camera, so I treasure moments captured with us all included. The photographers are engaging and the iconic backdrops such as Cinderella Castle are priceless. Our kiddos grow in the blink of an eye, so take ALL the photos! 

    Our little ones adore seeing all the characters and pageantry of the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade on Main Street, U.S.A. Grab a house-made snack from the nearby Main Street Confectionary for the ultimate midday treat as you watch. Indeed, if your little man has a sweet tooth, Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties: Pre-Party offers sweet snack sensations, with the benefit of Plaza Garden viewing point to see the skies come alive during the Happily Ever After fireworks extravaganza. What a way to round off a perfect day! 

    Please pass my very happiest birthday wishes to your son! Have a wonderful day celebrating together, Lakeitha, and if you need anything further, please let me know. Louise.
