    Hello!! I would like to know, what's the best character dinning to celebrate my son's birthday? He will be 7 years old. Thanks!!!

    Hi, Daniela!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My son has one character experience that he loves above all character experiences: Chef Mickey's. He loves the huge buffet food choices and he has always enjoyed seeing Mickey and his closest friends visit our table. Through the years, he continues to ask to return to Chef Mickey's! We have a reservation at the end of the year and he's 14 years old!

    If your son loves Winnie the Pooh and his friends, I highly recommend eating at The Crystal Palace. I have the sweetest memories of my kids dancing with Pooh Bear many years ago. I know many friends who would recommend Mickey's Backyard BBQ as a super fun character experience. We haven't had a chance to check it out yet. 

    Have a super fun time celebrating your son's birthday! Let me know if I can help you brainstorm extra fun for his special Disney day!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
