    My daughter is 2 1/2 years old right now. Her birthday is on 4/18/2014. We are going to Walt Disney World at the end of March. She has never been to Disney World and her favorite is Minnie mouse. What would make this a special memory for her?

    Hi Kimberly,

    Boy, is she going to be in heaven just before her birthday as you all celebrate at this magical place. 

    I would for sure recommend doing a character meal at Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Not only can your little girl meet Minnie Mouse, but the environment is festive, bright and a whole lot of fun. The buffet here is quite abundant and full of kid-friendly options as well as some tasty ones for you, too. I would also suggest ordering a cake to be delivered to her at this meal to make it extra special. You can order a custom cake by calling the Walt Disney World cake hotline at (407) 827-2253. The sky's the limit on the options available. You can also ask for a standard cake with no personalization at the podium when you check in for your reservation. Keep in mind these cakes are at an extra cost.

    If you aren't able do a meal at Chef Mickey's, you can still meet Minnie herself at several locations throughout the parks. Keep in mind that character meet and greets can change daily, so be sure to check a times guide when you are in the parks. 

    You could also pre-order a special surprise for her from Disney Floral and Gifts to be delivered to your resort room sometime during your trip. There are tons of options ranging from mouse ears, stuffed Minnies and balloons to elaborate gift baskets filled with yummy goodies. 

    Last, but certainly not least, I would get that little cutie some Minnie Mouse ears. You will be amazed at all the different styles you can find. Everything from fancy ear headbands with feathers to the classic Mickey and Minnie Mouse ears. Some can even be personalized which would make them even more special to mark this memorable birthday. 

    May your trip be filled with magical memories to treasure for a lifetime.
