    Hi there, We are planning a family vacation in the next year or so (hopefully) and will have a 5 and 3 year old. Our 5 year old has the same birthday as Mickey Mouse (November 18). I'm wondering if we should try to visit on that day or in January?

    Hi Jessica!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for stopping by as you daydream about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I know you and your family will have a magical time in Walt Disney World together! I've been visiting Mickey and his friends ever since I was a little Mouseketeer and still get the biggest smile walking into Magic Kingdom Park!

    Your little one shares a birthday with Mickey Mouse? That's amazing! In my opinion, taking a Walt Disney World family vacation during a birthday is so much fun, especially when that particular family member shares a birthday with Mickey Mouse! Since your child's birthday is November 18th, and that date is filled with pixie dust, I think planning your visit in November rather than January would be unforgettable!

    If you do end up visiting during the month of November next year, I think it would be so fun for your birthday kiddo to get his/her photo taken by a Disney PhotoPass Photographer with Mickey on their birthday! You could even make a birthday sign from home and bring it along with you for your child to hold up with Mickey during the photo!

    Jessica, if you have any other questions while you plan for your family's upcoming Disney vacation, please come back and visit us again!
