    WE are planning a birthday weekend for a 5 year old. We will be going Veterans day weekkend. What kind of events can we expect? What kind of food experiences are must haves?

    Hi there, Carmen! Thanks for trusting the Disney Parks Moms Panel to help you plan your adventure to the Disneyland Resort!

    Mid-November is such a fun time to visit the parks as the Holidays will be in full swing! You will get to experience all the dazzling holiday decor plus festive entertainment like A Christmas Fantasy Parade, the "Believe...In Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular, and nightly lightings of "it's a small world" Holiday and Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle. Also on weekend evenings, Fantasmic! will perform on the Rivers of America. 

    When it comes to food, you are in for even more of a treat! In Disney California Adventure Park is where you will find the Disney Festival of Holidays. You can enjoy music and performances from a variety of other cultures and indulge in all sorts of Holiday delights at the many Festive Foods Marketplace kiosks. 

    For a special birthday celebration for your child, consider booking a character meal. There are a several breakfast options to choose from and one dinner option at Goofy's Kitchen. You can even order a custom birthday cake to be delivered to your table to make the celebration complete.

    I hope this information was helpful. Have a fantastic time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
