    We are planning on celebrating my sons 4th birthday in disney and I 'm wondering if we bought a gift for him could we arrange to have Mickey give it to him at one of the character dining meals. He would love to get a gift from Mickey!

    Hi there, Antoinette!

    Your best bet is to check with your server and/or Mickey's human companion when you sit down.

    It's likely that if the gift is reasonably small, you'll be able to get sneaky and maneuver it into Mickey's hands with permission of the handler. Your server can probably help you with that.

    Because Mickey takes scheduled breaks during the rotation, you will not want to hand the gift off to anyone for safekeeping.

    You'll also want to call (407) WDW-DINE and get the birthday celebration noted on your reservation. That will help the Cast Members recognize your son's birthday starting at check-in.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
