    we are going to magic kingdom for my sons 3rd birthday, and he is a big fan of Mickey Mouse. Is there any restaurants I can reserve where Mickeys character will be present? either breakfast lunch or dinner? Thank you!

    Hi, Amy, and welcome to planDisney!  I am so excited to hear that you'll soon be celebrating your little Mouseketeer's 3rd birthday at The Most Magical Place on Earth!  In my opinion, there is no better place to celebrate a special occasion.

    Walt Disney World has lots of fun character dining experiences, and our pal Mickey Mouse appears at several of them.  While character appearances are always subject to change, Mickey has been known to visit with Guests at Chef Mickey's, Garden Grill Restaurant, Hollywood & Vine (lunch and dinner only), 'Ohana (breakfast only), Topolino's Terrace (breakfast only), and Tusker House.  I don't think you could go wrong with any of these character meals, but the breakfast at Topolino's Terrace is a personal favorite of mine.  The food and character interactions are both top-notch.  That being said, I also think the atmosphere at Chef Mickey's would be a blast for a little one's birthday celebration.

    Please keep in mind that reservations are highly recommended for table service restaurants, including character dining experiences.  Guests can begin making dining reservations 60 days in advance.  If you don't find the reservation you're looking for at first, don't be discouraged.  People's plans change all the time, so keep checking back to see if availability has changed.  If you check dining availability using your My Disney Experience mobile app while you're in the theme parks, you might even luck into a last-minute opening.

    If you're unable to snag a spot at the character meal of your choice, I'm happy to share that there are some other spots where your little guy can visit with Mickey Mouse.  Guests can Meet Mickey at Town Square Theater in Magic Kingdom Park.  Mickey also greets Guests at Adventurers Outpost at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and at Red Carpet Dreams at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Amy, I'm sure you are going to make some magical memories celebrating your son's special day!  If there's anything else we can help you with, please don't hesitate to ask.  See ya real soon!
