    I need to know own the best place to have a 5th birthday celebration that downtown cost an arm and a leg. Looking for balloons and a cake, something that might bring attention to the birthday girl. TIA

    Hi Brenna,

    A trip to Walt Disney World Resort AND a birthday celebration? How wonderful! I’m so happy for you, and I think I have the perfect place for you to celebrate your young padawan’s birthday. 

    I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Located in Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is a great place for some excellent but not expensive food, and the best place for shakes, sundaes and ice cream novelties. From the Brownie A La Mode, the Classic Banana Split, or Fudge Mud Slide, most of these awesome options are currently priced under $10, and you could easily share them with her. If she prefers to have her own, the Mickey Mouse Sundae would be an excellent option. But for many to share, the Kitchen Sink is a must. Serving four and currently priced under $30, it comes with several scoops of ice cream and every topping they have! Check out the the Beaches & Cream Soda Shop menu for these and other options. Remember that prices are subject to change.

    Reservations are highly recommended, which can be made up to 180 days in advance either online at the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page, or by phone at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. Make sure they note your special celebration. Beaches & Cream Soda Shop also has free balloons but they may run out in the afternoon. I suggest you stop by earlier in the day.

    Is the Force strong in your little one? A powerful Jedi, she will become.
