    We will be at Disney World for my son's 4th birthday & have several character breakfasts planned. Is there a way for the Disney characters to participate in a Happy Birthday song?

    Hi Joann!
    A couple of things...first of all, make sure your little guy gets a "Happy Birthday" button either at resort check-in or at Guest Services in any of the parks. I would have him wear it each day of the trip since it is, after all, a celebration that should last the whole vacation! You will see that almost every Cast Member will want to wish him a "Happy Birthday!" AND you just never know if something else special may happen.
    Also, at the character meals, let your server know that you are celebrating his birthday and they may just have a surprise or two for him. As far as the character participation goes, it is unlikely that you will be able to get the whole group at your table as they usually spread out to mingle with all of the other guests, but when your son's favorite character arrives at the table, you may want to ask them to stay as your group sings for your son.
    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical trip of memories and a Happy Birthday to your little guy!! :)
