    We are celebrating my kiddos birthdays, is there anyway to celebrate this at the parks/special experiences? Thanks

    Hi Amy,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Birthdays bring out the best in us!

    There are a number of different possibilities for the birthday celebration. As you make your dining reservations, be sure to note the birthdays on the reservations. After I make all of our dining reservations, I usually call 407-939-1947 to ask a cast member to make the notation on all of our reservations for us. In the past, some restaurants have given us mini cupcakes or birthday cards signed by the characters. 

    Since we normally celebrate at least one birthday while on vacation, I always make an advanced dining reservation at our favorite restaurant, California Grill, during the time of the Magic Kingdom fireworks. We usually get there about 30 minutes prior to our reservation time and I request a window table. If one is available, they will accommodate our family. 

    Amy, on other occasions, I have booked a special experience from the Enchanting Extras Collection. Our girls enjoyed the Caring for Giants Tour at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room. On our upcoming trip, we are going to the Dine with an Animal Specialist experience. Finally, I have also ordered from Disney Floral & Gifts. Speak to a Dream Maker to get a few enchanting ideas!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
