    Celebrating our little Princess' 3rd bday during our trip to WDW in Feb. I've already booked Akershus the morning of her birthday. Besides a birthday pin, and ordering a cake, is there anything else I can do while we are there with the Princesses?

    Hi, Amy!

    Happy birthday in advance to your sweet girl!

    You definitely hit on two "biggies": the birthday button and the cake.

    Consider picking up a t-shirt in her favorite color. Bring the shirt, a laundry marker or permanent marker, and a clipboard or other hard surface (I'm assuming you are rolling with a stroller). Put the hard surface between the front and back of the shirt, and stretch the shirt out flat. The Princesses will gladly sign the shirt for your girl, and she'll have a customized souvenir that she can wear proudly for as long as it fits! You might even want to glitter it up in advance or personalize it somehow.

    If you don't want to go that route, make an autograph book - like a small scrapbook. Create a page for each of the Princesses, and you'll have, again, a custom keepsake that she can hang on to.

    You can do the same with a picture frame;  craft stores typically offer plain wooden frames that you can decorate and have the Princesses sign.

    Because each Princess moves from table to table, your daughter will be able to see and meet every one of them. Depending on the crowd levels and schedule, you might be able to have a Cast Member arrange for a quick group picture, but that is something you will need to work out with the character handlers; you might find that the Princesses do not have the time to make that happen (but it never hurts to ask).

    If you have a costume for your daughter, consider allowing her to wear it to the meal, if not all day.

    And do make sure to catch Snow White in Germany and Mulan in China!

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator!
