    Hi, my family and I will be down in mid September to celebrate our son‘s seventh birthday and I am wondering what sort of special events or plans can we arrange for him? We are thinking we would like to celebrate his birthday at Magic Kingdom

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney.

    Birthday celebrations at a Walt Disney World Resort theme park are, I think, always so very special. Yes, a day in the theme parks is always magical on its own. That day becomes even more magical when you're greeted by Cast Members and Guests alike with a big "Happy Birthday!" shout-out.

    Be sure to start start the birthday boy's day with a stop at the Guest Relations Lobby in City Hall at Magic Kingdom Park to pick up his birthday celebration button. That's one sure fun way to let everyone know it's his special day.

    If you're planning to make a reservation for a sit-down table-service meal while at Magic Kingdom Park, you might want to consider marking the big seven day with a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake. We've enjoyed these cakes for birthday celebrations and they are as fun as they are delicious. You'll find a few participating restaurants at Magic Kingdom Park, including Tony's Town Square Restaurant, and Be Our Guest Restaurant among others. 

    Since you're planning to be at Magic Kingdom Park, you could also consider heading to Disney's Contemporary Resort nearby for a breakfast or dinner at Chef Mickey's. What could put the "happy" in happy birthday more than celebrating with Mickey and his pals?

    Speaking of Disney's Contemporary Resort, there are fun and unique experiences to enjoy on Seven Seas Lagoon such as catch-and-release fishing outings. I remember our family trip when our kiddo was seven and we wanted to try something new and different. Our picture of him proudly holding up his prize catch is one of our favorite Disney vacation photos.

    You might also want to take a look at Disney Floral & Gifts to see if there's something special the birthday boy would enjoy like Mickey's Most Magical Birthday Celebration gift.

    As you go about your day at Magic Kingdom Park, be sure to stop and smile for Disney PhotoPass photographers so you can capture all the moments of your son's special day.

    Eric, I hope these suggestions give you some ideas to add that extra bit of magic to your son's birthday. No doubt you are creating a memorable experience for him that he's sure to cherish as a most magical day!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
