    Hi there, Rosiland!

    Any time you wish to enter one of the four Parks at Walt Disney World, you are required to present a Magic Your Way ticket. This does include eating a meal at one of the restaurants in one of the Parks.

    But you can celebrate your birthday at a number of other Disney restaurants that are not inside one of the Parks!

    You've got loads of choices:

    Chef Mickey's
    inside Disney's Contemporary Resort
    'Ohana inside Disney's Polynesian Resort
    1900 Park Fare inside Disney's Grand Floridian Resort
    Cape May Cafe inside Disney's Beach Club Resort
    Whispering Canyon Cafe inside Disney's Wilderness Lodge

    ... and so many more!

    When you decide you how want to celebrate, make your reservations by calling (407) WDW-DINE, or by using the convenient online system.

    Have a wonderful birthday!

    See you later, celebrator,
