    My daughter is turning 2 and we are planning a trip to WDW. Which dinning experience is the best for eating with the characters for dinner? Also, is there any other suggestions or fun ideas for the trip that can make it extra special?

    Hi, Michelle!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    There are few things more magical than celebrating a birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort!  It would be my pleasure to help you sprinkle a little extra pixie dust over your daughter's birthday celebration.

    I think a character dining experience is a wonderful way to celebrate any special occasion!  If your little one loves princesses, Cinderella's Royal Table, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, or 1900 Park Fare would all be great choices.  Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White is one of my family's favorite character dining experiences.  The food here is top-notch, and you will have the opportunity for some unique character interactions that cannot be found anywhere else at Walt Disney World Resort.  Another extremely popular character meal takes place at Chef Mickey's.  The atmosphere at this buffet-style restaurant is fun and festive, and you will see Mickey and his pals. Please keep in mind that reservations for character dining experiences are recommended and can be made 180 days in advance.

    Did you know that you can have a birthday cake delivered to many restaurants throughout the Walt Disney World Resort?  For some additional ideas to help add a little extra magic to your daughter's special day, be sure to take a look at all that Disney Floral & Gifts and the Enchanting Extras Collection have to offer.  Also, don't forget to pick up a "Happy Birthday" button for your little princess at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or any Guest Relations location.  Your daughter will love all of the birthday wishes she receives from Cast Members and other guests!

    Wishing your little one a happy birthday, and your whole family a magical vacation!
