    What would be a great restaurant to celebrate sons bday (8). Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Christine ~

    My boys love to celebrate anything at the Walt Disney World Resort! One of their favorite places to dine is T-REX located at Disney Springs. Most 8-year old boys love dinosaurs so this location is always a big hit. It is way cool with several different themed dining areas so be sure to walk around to see all of them. My boys love playing in the Paleo Zone while we wait for our table. And of course we have to shop in the Dino-Store on our way out. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made starting 180 days prior to your visit. You can make reservations through the link I've provide or by calling 407-828-8739. Be sure to tell them that you're celebrating your son's birthday.

    There is so much to see and do at Disney Springs that makes it the perfect place to celebrate! Before or after you dine at T-REX, be sure to check out these fun options your son may love:
    * The LEGO Store - this is a great place to let your son pick out that perfect gift.
    * Once Upon a Toy - he can build his own lightsaber here.
    * Take a cruise in a vintage Amphicar - kids love this!
    * If your son is adventurous, take a ride in the world's largest hand-painted helium balloon. You can see for miles up there!

    I'm limited in space but if you prefer to celebrate by dining in a theme park, please feel free to visit again. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing your son minnie magical birthday memories :-) Allison V.
