    This is my first time at Disneyland to celebrate my son’s 3rd birthday. I also have a one-year old toddler. Are there any special birthday activities that I should be aware of to make this experience extra special for him?

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Sandra!

    Thanks for taking the time to bring your questions to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love helping fellow moms plan their practically perfect trips to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    My son also turned three this year, and we celebrated by taking him to the Disneyland Resort as well! After picking up a complimentary birthday button for him at City Hall in Disneyland Park, he just loved the attention he was getting from fellow Guests, Cast Members, and Characters giving him birthday wishes during our trip.

    One fun way we celebrated his birthday was by making him an appointment at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to get a magical transformation by a Fairy Godmother-in-training. Many people don't realize that apart from Princess-inspired makeovers for little girls, they also offer Knight packages for little boys. My son absolutely adored his sword, shield, and glittery hair gel. It was a super unique birthday present that truly made him feel special. You can make an appointment here up to 60 days in advance by calling (714) 781-7895.

    Another way to celebrate a birthday is by booking a Character Dining experience. Recently we dined at Storytellers Cafe, and I was blown away by their breakfast selection. Plus, what's better than meeting Mickey and his pals for your birthday?

    I hope this gives you some fun ideas. I know you will have a Fantasmic vacation and birthday celebration!
