    Celebrating daughters 4th and my b-day I want to make the day (in the park on day of birthday) extra special, we have already booked the Castle for dinner at 4:00 pm, any other suggestions? What are the best dinner times for max characters exposure?

    Hi, Candice! Happy birthday to you and your daughter! It sounds as though you already have a wonderful day planned!  I cannot think of a better way to spend a birthday than celebrating at the Magic Kingdom.  Be sure that you both stop by Guest Services to get your birthday buttons.  This is a great, free way to garner all kinds of good wishes from Cast Members and other Guests alike.  A free birthday phone call from Goofy to your Disney Resort room can be arranged by calling 407-824-2222. 

    All Disney Table-Service restaurants except Victoria and Albert's offer six-inch chocolate or vanilla birthday cakes for purchase with no notice required.  If you prefer a more personalized cake, Disney's Cake Hotline allows you to choose the filling, icing , and personalized decorations.  Forty-eight hours notice is required.  You can reach them at 407-827-2253.  You can also search for a perfect gift basket at or room decorations from Disney Dream Makers (407-939-4438). 

    Guests are will see the same number of characters no matter when they dine.  They rotate through the restaurant on a circuit.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
