    Hi, Kimberly!  How exciting that your princess gets to celebrate her birthday at Walt Disney World! 

    We've done quite a few birthday celebrations at the theme parks and resort restaurants, and I would say definitely book a nice dinner that everyone can be at to celebrate.  You can order a cake for your special girl right at the podium when you check into the restaurant, or if you want something personalized or a special cake made, you can call Walt Disney World's cake hotline at 407-827-2253.

    When you book your room, let them know that you will be celebrating a birthday during your stay, and notify the restaurants when you make your dining reservations.  To pump up the excitement for your daughter's birthday, you can check out some of the incredible offerings available around Walt Disney World to help you create a wonderful celebration.  That information is located HERE . 

    You might also want to let your daughter plan the day of her birthday herself.  Allow her to choose the theme park or the activity for the day, and ask where she might like to have a special birthday dinner.  The day will be that much more special if she helps plan some of the things she most wants to do on your vacation.

    I hope you all have a wonderful celebration and a magical vacation!
