    Hi, I am planning to celebrate my 5 Years old boy birthday with my family only 4 members to make him special and all have annual passes. Please suggest.

    Hi Saurabh!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! 

    Celebrating your son's 5th birthday at Walt Disney World sounds like an amazing idea! I can't imagine a better place to make birthday memories than The Most Magical Place on Earth. With your Annual Passes ready, you're all set! I'm happy to share some ideas to make his day extra special.

    It's always a fun idea to start the celebration with a Character Breakfast! Consider booking a dining experience where your little prince can meet some beloved Disney characters. Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort is a hit for birthday mornings, offering delicious food and the chance to meet Mickey and his friends. Remember to check availability and book your dining reservation in advance! 

    Make sure to stop by Guest Relations or your Walt Disney World Resort hotel front desk to get a complimentary birthday button for your son. Wearing it will attract birthday wishes from Cast Members, Characters, and even other guests throughout the day, making him feel extra special. Character Experiences in Magic Kingdom, like meeting Mickey at Town Square Theater or the princesses at Princess Fairytale Hall, can be unforgettable when paired with a birthday celebration.

    If your little one is a Star Wars fan, you could plan a visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios to immerse him in an out-of-this-world experience at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Your young pilot might be just tall enough to join the crew on the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run! The height requirement is 38 inches. They can take on the Pilot, Gunner, or Engineer role in this interactive adventure. When it's time to refuel, head to Docking Bay 7 for some galactic grub that's out of this world!

    Did you know you could order a custom birthday cake to be delivered to most Table Service restaurants within the parks? You can add a Celebration Cake to your dining reservation online or through the My Disney Experience Mobile App. You can also place an order directly at the restaurant's welcome desk at least four days before your booking.
    A limited number of Mickey Mouse Celebration Cakes are typically kept on hand for same-day requests at participating dining locations.

    An awesome way to end your day of celebration is with a nighttime show or fireworks display. Whether it's the enchanting Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park or the fabulous Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios, these Nighttime Spectaculars promise a memorable end to a perfect birthday.

    Remember, the most important part is spending time together and creating unforgettable memories. Plan your day around what your son loves most about Disney, and it's sure to be a hit. If you need more pixie-dusted suggestions, please come back and visit us here at planDisney!
