    My daughter turns 5 in Nov and we're booked at Old Key West Resort. Its a first time for my daughter and my husband, although its been awhile, I have been b4. any suggestions on what parks to visit and activities to book to make it special for them both?

    Hi Attiyya!

    I don’t think there is any place better to celebrate a birthday than Walt Disney World! From enchanting places to dine, favorite characters to meet and exciting attractions, everyone in your family is sure to have a magical vacation. Be sure to request a complimentary “Happy Birthday” button from the front desk.  Wearing this button throughout the parks will mean birthday wishes from both Cast Members and other Guests! By far, Magic Kingdom Park is the most popular with children and adults alike, so I would make sure not to miss at least one full  day in the Magic Kingdom. How about a a special birthday meal on your daughter’s special day?For Princesses fans the most popular location is Cinderella’s Royal Table inside Cinderella Castle.  If Mickey is your daughter’s favorite, Chef Mickey’s is fun filled character meal.

    Is your husband a movie buff? Fans of Star Wars, Indiana Jones or even the Muppets will enjoy Disney’s Hollywood Studios. If your husband is a foodie, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will be celebrated at Epcot through November 16, 2015 offering over 20 international kiosks with food and beverages from cultures around the world.  

    The Holiday Season begins in November at the Walt Disney World Resort. Decorations will be up in the parks and many of the resorts, and at the Magic Kingdom you can get your holiday spirit going with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Enjoy hot cocoa and sugar cookies during the special Mickey’s Very Merry Christmastime Parade and watch it snow on Main Street, U.S.A. Tickets can be purchased through the online Special Events Ticket Page.

    I hope this is a good start. Please let me know what additional questions you have as you plan your special trip!
