    Disney world and I share a birthday on October 1st. However we couldn’t get reservations for that day we are going on the 2nd. We haven’t been to the Magic Kingdom in 8years any dinning suggestions on where to eat what we shouldn’t miss?

    Hi Susan! Welcome to planDisney!

    A very big "Happy Birthday!" to you! I think it is so fun that you celebrate a birthday with the Most Magical Place on Earth! I have loved watching all of the amazing surprises that have come with the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration and I bet you are thrilled to experience it all for yourself!

    Since Magic Kingdom Park with likely be very busy still because of the celebration, I suggest planning your dining must-haves early in the day so you have a good plan in place. I have heard that Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering via the My Disney Experience mobile app is filling up quickly because of all the SUPER cute 50th anniversary offerings, so either get your orders in early or plan to order in person. Visit this link to the Foodie Guide to 50th Anniversary Celebration Sips and Bites from the Disney Parks Blog to read up on all the unique items available. I am especially excited to try the Uncle Orville Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow Sundae from Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies because Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress is a favorite attraction of mine!

    If you are hoping for a Table-Service dining experience, check to see if there is any walk-up availability when you arrive for your day. You can't go wrong with any of the dining locations! Since the walk-up list waits are usually a bit long, it helps to be flexible with your dining time, join the waitlist early, then plan to indulge in a snack (or two!) while you wait.

    I hope you have the best birthday, Susan! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
