    Hi I’m planning to stay at the animal kingdom lodge from my Son‘s birthday I wanted to know is there a separate Area and the hotel that I could put his birthday Breakfast and possibly bring some characters

    Hiya Vivian - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question for our team of panelists. We love to help Guests just like you plan your very own, very magical, Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

    Every day at Walt Disney World is a celebration, and that makes it an extra special place to celebrate birthdays! It sounds like you might be wanting to plan something extra special for your son's special day and I have a couple of options for you to consider.

    If you are interested in hosting a private event with Characters (how fun!) you'll want to explore the services and offerings of the Disney Meetings & Events team. From conventions with thousands of attendees to small and intimate birthday celebrations, they are the experts! Depending on availability, they may be able to offer you venues at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and can discuss options for Character visits.

    If timing or budget don't work out for that option, I have another idea that might be a good fit! Tusker House Restaurant, located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, offers a daily Character breakfast in an adventurous Africa-inspired setting. You'll be visited by Donald Duck and his pals donning their safari gear while enjoying some delicious all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast classics, and some items with global flare!

    This would be a great option to celebrate at breakfast and enjoy interactions with Characters without breaking the bank on a private event. You can make Advance Dining Reservations at Tusker House or any other Walt Disney World Resort dining location up to 60 days in advance of your arrival. This is a very popular location, so I would advise making these reservations as soon as you are able to. If you don't see any availability, keep checking. Other Guests' plans change all the time, and when they cancel a reservation, it is then made available for others to book!

    I also want to point out that you'll be visited during the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration, full of exciting new attractions, entertainment, food, and so much more. Get ready to make some magical memories!

    I hope this information is helpful - please let me know if you have any additional questions as you continue planning!
