    My daughter will be turning one while we are at Disney World this spring. Could you recommend a good character dinning experience that she could enjoy (I also have a five year old daughter)? Also, any other advice on how to make her first birthday special

    Hi Colleen -

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Happy Birthday to your daughter!

    There are lots of great character meal options at Walt Disney World. My specific advice would depend based upon which characters she liked best. When my kids were really little, their favorite two character meals were at Chef Mickey at the Contemporary and the Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom.

    Chef Mickey features the traditional characters of Mickey and friends, while the Crystal Palace features Winnie the Pooh and friends. Both are buffets, and they are both great for young children.

    I hope that helps! Have a great vacation!
