    We will be celebrating my son's second birthday at the parks this year. Which restaurants would make the biggest deal/have the most exciting celebration for something like this?

    Hi Jacqueline!

    Happy Birthday to your special little guy!

    We celebrate our kids birthdays at Walt Disney World every year and we always receive a special welcome, complete with Disney Magic (Mickey Mouse confetti) sprinkled on the table and a delicious cupcake, complete with a candle for making a wish, on their birthday.

    My top favorite restaraunt for celebrating the kids birthdays include:

    Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom - Winnie the Pooh and friends visit all of the guests at this all-you-can-eat buffet, but the characters always seem to spend a bit more time with the birthday boy/girl at this locale. The kids also love the delicious cupcake they receive at this restaraunt. Your little guy will also get a birthday card signed from Winnie-the-Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore.

    Tony's Town Square Restaraunt at the Magic Kingdom - During my kids' birthdays last year, they brought out a delicious chocolate dessert with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the plate.

    Another favorite is Chef Mickey's because you can receive a card signed by Mickey and friends, along with a yummy cupcake. 

    Make sure to note that you are celebrating his birthday on all Advanced Dining Reservations when you call 407.WDW.DINE and ask for a birthday button when you arrive.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
