    We are coming in September to celebrate my granddaughter's 4th birthday. Is there something special we can do for her? Looking for recommendations such as princess experiences or birthday cake ideas. Thanks!

    Hi Carolyn!

    Welcome to planDisney! We are delighted to help you think of birthday ideas for your granddaughter's special day!

    First, let me say that a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is an amazing birthday gift! If I were you, I would pre-order a few items from shopDisney and bring them with me or have a few surprises shipped to your resort hotel just prior to your arrival. Stay up late one night or get up early one morning to lay out the special surprises!

    Also, if available during the time of your visit, consider ordering one the of the Cakes at Walt Disney World Resort. The Mickey Mouse celebration cakes should be available and are yummy. I would also suggest that you purchase Memory Maker so that you have access to all of your digital photos. If she chooses to dress as royalty for her special day, capture those memories!

    At this time, character dining reservations are available at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera and Garden Grill in EPCOT. My family loves the food at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Rivera and we adore the characters. Be sure to make those advanced dining reservations 60 days in advance as seating capacity is limited. Many of our favorite characters, however, are making surprise appearances in the parks, so do keep an eye out for them. I have it on good authority that you may still see your favorite princess or all of them during your visit.

    Carolyn, do keep your eye on the operational updates, resort hotel updates and dining information as procedures and experiences may change. And, finally, be sure to access the Disney Park Pass system to make theme park reservations for each day that you have valid theme park admission. Whatever you decide, we are excited to welcome you back for your next Incredible Disney Day!

    Magic and memories,
