    Missy!! Hi!! We are heading to WDW in August :) We are staying at the Wilderness Lodge!! Jase will be 5 while we are there..are there any new places we should look for a fun birthday dinner beside the Castle?! He doesn’t love all the characters..

    Hi Molly,

    I'm SUPER excited for your family's upcoming vacation, and am so glad that you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel so that I can help you plan a special celebration!

    There is NO better place to celebrate a birthday than at the Walt Disney World Resort! This is one birthday that your Mouseketeer will remember forever! Cinderella's Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park is definitely an incredible experience, but I'm sure that your handsome prince will receive lots of attention from all of the Princesses there, so if he's not comfortable dining with characters, you might want to pick someplace else. There are lots of great dining locations without characters that I'm sure he'd love! My kiddos really love Whispering Canyon Cafe and all of the fun antics and stick-horse races there, or dinner at 'Ohana where the food is not only delicious, but they can enjoy some coconut races and Hula dancing, too. You could combine a yummy dinner with some entertaining fun at Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue or Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show! Of course T-REX and Rainforest Cafe are always a hit with kids, too. I'm confident that wherever you choose, you'll have a GREAT time!

    For something a little extra special, did you know that you can have a birthday cake delivered to your Disney Resort hotel room or restaurant of your choice? Also, don't forget to ask for complimentary "Happy Birthday" and "I'm Celebrating" buttons when you first arrive! Cast Members (and even some Guests!) will love celebrating with you!

    Please wish Jase a very special Happy Birthday from all of us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Molly, and have a truly magical vacation!
