    Hello! I have planned a last minute trip to Disney for the week of March 25/17. My daughter will be turning 5 on the 29th of March. Is there anything a little extra special that I could plan for this day? We are not staying on a Disney resort. Thanks!

    Hi Nicole,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can imagine your daughter's excitement about this very special trip! I can think of no better way to spend a birthday than at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    First, I recommend that you reserve a character meal on your daughter's birthday. My girls love Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace and Hollywood & Vine. If your daughter likes princesses, try Cinderella's Royal Table, 1900 Park Fare and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. When our girls were five, they adored 1900 Park Fare with Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner. One of them was just too shy to talk to Prince Charming!

    Second, once you have selected the dining venue and made a reservation, contact Disney Floral & Gifts. They deliver to select locations. In the past, we have ordered balloons for our girls and they loved them! 

    If you decide to do a princess character meal, you could make it an entire princess day by taking your daughter to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique - Magic Kingdom or Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique - Disney Springs. If that does not fit your budget, you can always bring her own princess dress and let her wear it to the princess meal. Every princess has to dress the part!

    I do hope your daughter has a magical birthday!
