    Hi! We will be celebrating my son's 6th birthday while at Disney. Is one character dining better (than others) for celebrating birthdays? Thanks for your help.

    Hi Mike,

    I've celebrated a lot of birthdays at restaurants with character dining, and I think they're all pretty fun and very similar.  I would just choose the restaurant that has your son's favorite characters.  He'll most likely be given a card signed by the characters at the restaurant - a fun souvenir of his special day. 

    If you're looking for suggestions, Chef Mickey's is probably the most popular.  Garden Grill in Epcot is one my favorite places to see Mickey.  If your child likes Winnie the Pooh, my vote would be to head to Crystal Palace.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
