    I am celebrating my 23 birthday in october of 2011 here with my husband and I dont want to miss anything. What are the top things to do in each park? Magic, Animal, Hollywood Studios and epcot. also what are the best places to eat?

    Hi Christine,

    The top things to do in each park will depend on whether you are a thrill-seeker, prefer shows or like to enjoy interesting attractions that are sometimes overlooked.

    Let's visit each park:

    Epcot - The headliner here is Soarin' but you'll also want to ride Test Track and if you are a maybe Mission Space.My favorite part of the park is World Showcase. Enjoy the food, entertainment and shopping that represents each nation. For example, you must not miss going inside the Mexican pyramid where you'll find a restaurant, Tequila bar, a boat ride, and shopping. In the evening, IllumiNations, the fireworks show, is an extravaganza! Best eats - Le Cellier, Via Napoli, San Angel Inn, and Tutto Italia.

    Animal Kingdom - Thrill-seekers boast how many times they've ridden Expedition Everest. Kilimanjaro Safaris, and the Lion King show are very popular attractions.  Best eats - try Yak 'n Yeti or start your day with Donald Duck's breakfast inside the Tusker House restaurant.

    Hollywood Studios - Headliners include Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Toy Story Mania and the evening show, Fantasmic! Star Wars fans will want to ride Star Tours. Best food - 50s Prime Time Cafe and Mama Melrose's.

    Magic Kingdom - Space Mountain, Peter Pan, Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Wishes fireworks are not-to-be missed. There's lots of other fun attractions along the way too such as the hilarious Monsters, Inc. show. For meals, have lunch or dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table, or dine with the Hundred Acre Wood pals at Crystal Palace.

    For restaurants, visit nearby resorts for an even larger selection. For instance, from the Magic Kingdom, travel to 'Ohana in the Polynesian.

    Enjoy a wonderful birthday with magical wishes!
