    Which restaurant would you recommend for celebrating my daughter's 3rd birthday: Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace, or CRT? Our travel party will consist of 8 people including the birthday girl and my 5 year old daughter and 2 nephews who will be 6 and 2 1/2.

    Hi, Amy!  While all 3 are great choices, my favorite restaurant for a birthday celebration is Chef Mickey's!  This is a family tradition for us - we just love to celebrate with our favorite Mouse!

    The atmosphere is very festive at Chef Mickey's.   The buffet has a nice salad bar, soup, kids choices, and several entrees.   The dessert table, in my opinion, has the best desserts of all the buffets on property.   You really don't even need to get a cake.   You will have plenty of sweets, fruit, ice cream and more to enjoy!  And let a cast member know when you are checking in at the podium that you are celebrating and they will sometimes bring an additional sweet treat!

    This is an extremely popular dining location, so make sure to make your Advance Dining Reservations by calling (407)WDW-DINE.  Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance.

    By the way, if Chef Mickey's is booked, my second choice is Crystal Palace with Pooh and his friends!   Happy Birthday to your princess and have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
