    My Husband and I are thinking about doing a trip to Disney Orlando in early March 2013 for our sons 4th Birthday. We haven't been to Disney. We're planning on doing a 4 day vacation with park hopper. What rides, shows, events will give him a great b-day?

    Howdy Christina!  1st of all, be sure to pick up a celebration button for your birthday boy.  You never know when a Cast Member might see it and add some pixie dust to his day.  When you are making your hotel or dining reservations, be sure to let them know that he is celebrating his birthday. 

    To answer your question to the best of my ability, I sought the advice of an expert on this 4 year old little boy.

    If you are staying on Walt Disney World Property, he recommends at Pirate Room at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  The beds look like pirate ships!!  In keeping with the pirate theme, while at Magic Kingdom, be sure to visit Pirates of the Caribbean.  You might think try to make a reservation for The Pirates League, where your son will be transformed into a "First Mate" and become a pirate for a day.

    Does your son like Star Wars?  If so, while at Disney's Hollywood Studios, head back to the store outside of Star Tours.  It's great and there is a speeder outside the attraction where he can get his picture taken.  He might also love the Jedi Training Academy where he will learn to use the force in a 20-minute training academy. 

    There is so much more I could tell you.  Do you have a tentative itinerary outlining what theme park you will visit on what day?    I would love to help you in any way I can but we may need to break it down and go step by step.  The 1st thing to do is book your hotel and then make any dining reservations you may need.  I'm so excited for you!  How may I help you add some pixie dust to this very special vacation?
