    Celebrating my Daughter's 5th birthday when visiting Disney World from the 16th-22nd and specifically magic kingdom on January 17th(her actual birthday)...are there any things that are available/interesting/special to do for someone age that day/week?

    Welcome to planDisney, Bruce. With The World Most's Magical Celebration well and truly underway, you're coming to Walt Disney World at the right time. How special it will be for your little princess to enjoy her birthday at Magic Kingdom Park. I think that officially moves you up to "Pro-Level Dad" status. Well done to you, Bruce!

    Having recently taken my own mini-Elsa to Walt Disney World, I'd suggest getting family photos in front of Cinderella Castle (which looks majestic in its EARidescent colors). As a Disney dad, my favorite thing is to watch my daughter as she looks on in joyful wonder at the characters in Mickey's Celebration Calvacade. In terms of attractions, Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan's Flight, Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mad Tea Party, and "it's a small world" are certainly family favorites. If she's a little thrill-seeker, then maybe it's time to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. You can also introduce her to my friend, Mickey Mouse. I know that he'd love to meet the birthday girl. And there's nothing like finishing the night with Disney Enchantment. If you are hoping for some extra pixie dust, then check out the Enchanting Extras Collection. From carriage rides to fireworks cruises, these experiences can truly make it the best day EVER.

    Outside of Magic Kingdom Park, there are lots of other things your daughter would love. If you want to captivate her imagination, then EPCOT International Festival of Arts has plenty to offer, especially for kids. If, like my own Wilderness Explorer, she loves animals, then Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom is a must!

    I hope you have an enchanting trip and that all your daughter's dreams come true.
