    We are hoping to travel to DisneyWorld for our daughter’s 5th birthday. We’d love to have special birthday experiences for her that day. What birthday packages and experiences does DisneyWorld have? (We’ll probably be in Magic Kingdom on her birthday)

    Welcome to planDisney, Donald!

    I had the chance to celebrate my oldest daughter’s 5th birthday at Magic Kingdom Park and we still talk about the great memories that were made on that day!

    Have you considered staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel? You will be immersed in the magic and enjoy proximity to the theme parks and complimentary transportation. If your daughter likes the Disney Princesses as much as my daughter did at that age, I recommend making reservations at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. We stayed in the Little Mermaid standard room and my daughter loved the larger-than-life characters around the resort. This hotel features the largest resort pool in Walt Disney World Resort and Guests can use the Disney Skyliner to travel to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. If you stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can also contact a Dream Maker at Disney Floral & Gifts to surprise your daughter with a magical in-room celebration.

    Since you are visiting Magic Kingdom Park on her birthday, I recommend making dining reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table. It is simply magical to dine inside iconic Cinderella Castle. Although characters are currently unavailable at dining locations due to the current situation, I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future updates and announcements since you will be visiting in 2022. Another great option located inside the park is Be Our Guest Restaurant where Guests dine inside Beast Castle. Did you know that you can enhance your meal by ordering a Mickey Mouse Celebration cake at participating table-service restaurants?

    One of the highlights of our day was the Disney Princess makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, however, this service is currently unavailable. If your daughter likes the Disney Princesses and the boutiques are still closed by the time of your vacation, I recommend stopping by World of Disney store at Disney Springs the day before visiting Magic Kingdom to purchase a Disney Princess dress and accessories. Your princess will be able to visit Magic Kingdom Park dressed up to the occasion! Remember to stop by Guest Relations to request a complimentary “Happy Birthday” button and let others join you in celebrating the birthday girl!

    I hope this helps you plan a magical celebration for your daughter! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help!

    Best Disney wishes,
