    Hi my family of 4 adults and 2 children (5 & 2) will be visiting in July 2018 it's my daughter's 3rd birthday whilst we are there. Do you have any suggestions of things we can do with them both to make her day even more special. Thanks

    Hi Sarah,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Well, I can imagine that there may be lots of dancing, singing and overall celebrating because you have a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort planned! A birthday celebration on top of that just adds to the magic.

    My girls love autographed cards from the characters. On a visit this past summer, we celebrated my husband's birthday and, at many of our dining experiences, he received a little extra special treatment in honor of his birthday. Several places gave him complimentary mini cupcakes and a few places, like The Crystal Palace, included autographed cards from the characters. Just be sure to make a note of the birthday celebration on your dining reservations!

    You can bring your own small gifts or order a special surprise from Disney Floral & Gifts. On two trips, we had balloons delivered at dinner. The girls loved them. My only perplexing moment was figuring out what to do with them after dinner. If you have a stroller, just tie them to your stroller. It will help with spotting your stroller among the sea of strollers at the park!

    If you want to try something different, take a look at some of the Nature Experiences that are part of the Enchanting Extras Collection. We took the girls on the Caring for Giants Tour and got to see the elephants up close. They adored Baby Stella!

    Sarah, I hope your daughter has a birthday sprinkled with pixie dust!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
