    My daughter will turn 8 July 2016 and I would love to take her to Disney before she is 8. We live in Michigan and would like the best bang for our buck with a short two day visit.What special activities should we consider while at Magic/Animal Kingdom?

    Hello, Angelecque!

    Your little princess must be getting so excited about her special birthday celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort! I'm happy to share a few special tips with you to help your daughter have a most magical birthday.

    Magic Kingdom Park
    • Has your daughter always dreamed of being transformed into a real Disney Princess? Make an appointment for her royal transformation at Disney's Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! A Fairy Godmother-in-training will oversee your daughter's magical makeover while you all enjoy the regal setting of Cinderella Castle.
    • Get your daughter involved in the FastPass+ planning to celebrate her special day! The birthday girl can help choose the family's FastPass+ selections to ensure shorter waits at her favorite attractions.
    • Turn just about any table-service meal into a birthday celebration by ordering a customized birthday cake. You can choose from a variety of cake flavors and shapes with just 72 hours advance notice. To order, make sure to call the Walt Disney World Resort at (407) 827-2253. Please note that this option does require advanced reservations.
    • End your day with the Wishes nighttime spectacular. It's, well, spectacular!
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    • Your little adventurer can earn badges as she completes self-guided activities in her Wilderness Explorers field guide. Pick up a free field guide at one of the convenient Wilderness Explorer stops, and get ready to explore!
    • Enjoy a delicious African-inspired feast at Tusker House Restaurant. Your family can dine with Safari Donald Duck and friends while you take a break from the Florida heat.
    I hope your daughter has a very happy birthday, Angelecque! Please don't hesitate to stop back by the Moms Panel if you have any additional questions. Hope to see ya real soon!
