    We are celebrating my sons 5th birthday at MAGIC KINGDOM November 30, 2019. This is the first time to WDW for the entire family!! Any suggestions on activities to do while we are there? Something like Cinderallas castle that's for the girls?

    Hi, Tiffany!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hEAR that your family will be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort for the first time!  The holiday season is such a special time to visit, not to mention the fact that it is your little Mouseketeer's birthday.  This is going to be such an incredible trip, full of magical memories!  I'm sure you will want to relive those memories for yEARs to come.  If you haven't done so already, you may want to consider purchasing Memory Maker for unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass Service pictures.

    When you arrive for your vacation, be sure to pick up "First Visit" and "Happy Birthday" buttons at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or any Guest Relations location.  You never know what kind of magic you will experience when you wear those buttons.  If you would like to have a birthday surprise for your son delivered to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, Disney Floral & Gifts has you covered.  The Enchanting Extras Collection is also a great place to look for something to add a little extra pixie dust to any special occasion.

    In my opinion, a character dining experience is a great way to celebrate a birthday.  Chef Mickey's is one of my favorite character meals.  Chef Mickey's is just a quick walk or monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom Park at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  If you're looking for a character meal inside Magic Kingdom Park, The Crystal Palace is also a wonderful option.  Did you know that you can even have a birthday cake delivered to many Walt Disney World Resort dining locations?  Please keep in mind that if you wish to plan a special birthday meal for your kiddo, dining reservations are highly recommended.

    Wishing your son the happiest of birthdays and your whole family the most magical vacation ever!  See ya real soon!
