    We are celebrating our son's third birthday at Disneyland and want to book a fun dinner reservation. What would you suggest?

    Hey there, Brandy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It is so exciting to celebrate a birthday at the Happiest Place on Earth and I would love to give you some dinner recommendations. My first thought was a wacky and fun dinner at Goofy's Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel. It is the only restaurant that offers a character dinner at the Disneyland Resort. You get to meet Goofy and a few of his pals while you feast on a delicious dinner buffet.

    Another great option is Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland Park. I adore the ambiance of this outdoors-indoors restaurant. You'll be dining in the heart of the bayou while passengers aboard the Pirates of the Caribbean float by your table. Furthermore, the food here is divine! I can still remember savoring the mouthwatering rack of lamb and the white cheddar mashed potatoes. And they also have typical kid fare on the menu perfect for the birthday boy.

    One more fun option can be found in the Downtown Disney District - The Rainforest Cafe. You'll be surrounded by the lush greenery and majestic creatures of the Amazon. Plus the menu is so expansive that everyone in your party is sure to find something they will love.

    Reservations can be made up to 60 days advance online or by calling (714) 781-3463 (or (714) 772-0413 for the Rainforest Cafe). Finally, you can also order a custom birthday cake to be delivered to your table by calling (714) 781-3463 at least three days in advance.

    I hope your son has a super birthday at the Disneyland Resort!
