    Hi, I am a recently single mother looking to do something extra special with my soon to be 7 year old son. I'm thinking about taking him ON his birthday this year but time is running out. Best resort and best attraction? Any perks for a birthday boy?

    Hi Suzanne,

    I think celebrating at the Walt Disney World Resort is a great idea! I hope you have a great time at the resort with your son!

    Best resort is all about preference and price. My favorite resort is Yacht Club or Beach Club. They have a great pool as well as a great location. However, if price is an issue, look at Port Orleans Riverside or Pop Century. All Disney World Resorts offer you similar experience. The main difference in price is the distance to the parks and the size of the rooms and room amenities.

    As for best attraction, there are too many to list. It really depends on your personal taste. Thrill rides such as  Rock 'n' Rollercoaster by Aerosmith is my favorite. Other attractions are Pirates of the Caribbean or Toy Story Midway Mania. 

    As for perks for the birthday boy, grab a pin from the resort lobby that says "Happy Birthday" and list it on your dining reservations. He might receive a free dessert or other small treat.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
