    Its our family first time ever ! We are celebrating my son's 4th bday! Staying at pop century for four days and 3 nights checking in sunday after 2pm and checking out wed, where should I go first and how to get the most of my vacation *got 3day FL pass

    Hi Meire! I am so excited for you that you are visiting Walt Disney World for the first time! How exciting!

    Your son is going to have the best birthday ever! I have a few suggestions to make your vacation magical.

    First, when you arrive, ask for a birthday button for your son. He will love when everyone greets him with "Happy Birthday!"

    If you make any Advanced Dining Reservations, make sure to note on the reservation that you are celebrating your son's birthday. Most locations will bring out a little cupcake, complete with candles, and have Disney magic sprinkled on the table when you arrive. If you haven't made any dining reservations, I suggest making a few at some of the character dining experiences, such as Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom (Winnie the Pooh and friends) and Chef Mickey's at The Contemporary (Mickey and friends.) 

    Pop Century is a great resort! You guys will love the pool there. Since you have the Wild for 3 Florida Resident Pass and you are staying for 4-days, I would suggest hanging out at the resort the first day, going to the pool and Downtown Disney. Then the next day you will be refreshed and ready to hit the parks. Since your son is four, he will particularly love Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom and all of the Pixar characters at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Depending on how much of Magic Kingdom you get to see, spend your third day either touring Magic Kingdom again, or at Epcot or Animal Kingdom. No matter what you choose, I know you will have a magical time!

    Please let me know if I can help you with anything else!
