    It will be my daughter's 5th birthday when we visit next week. Can you help me find somewhere for dinner to celebrate her birthday for dinner? Anything else we can do at the park for her birthday?

    Hey there, Carrie! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for coming by with your question! 

    Celebrating your child’s birthday with a trip to the Disneyland Resort is so magical! Cast Members love to join the celebration with you! To let them know it’s your little one’s special day be sure to stop by Guest Relations for a complimentary birthday button! Feel free to get an “I’m Celebrating” button for yourself! You’re celebrating too, right? 

    A couple of suggestions for a celebratory dinner are Lamplight Lounge in Disney California Adventure Park or Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland Park. Both restaurants are right on the water and offer unique décor. Dining reservations can be made on the Disneyland website or the Disneyland App up to 60 days in advance. But, if you’re unable to snag a reservation at your desired location, don’t lose hope! You can always check with the Cast Member at the host stand to inquire if there is walk-up availability.  

    Last suggestion to make your little one’s birthday extra special! Make sure to take plenty of pictures to commemorate your trip! You can purchase Disney PhotoPass+ One Day and take advantage of unlimited downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos. Those fun photos taken on attractions are always some of my favorites! Also, make sure to take advantage of the Disney PhotoPass Photographers! They are always willing to capture special images for you! For an extra special surprise, request a Magic Shot! You never know which character will make an appearance in your picture! 

    I hope your child has a wonderful birthday and an unforgettable visit to “The Happiest Place on Earth!”
