    Is there something we can do inside the parks (Animal Kingdom) to celebrate a 3rd birthday? We already have reservations at Chef Mickey's. I want the day to be special but we won't be in the room long enough for an in room celebration. Any suggestions?

    At the front desk of your resort, be sure to ask for a birthday button for your child. It's a large pin that he can wear on his special day. Besides being a fun (and free!) souvenir, it's also a great way for the birthday boy to get a little extra attention on his special day. Cast members everywhere will be wishing him a great day, and when you greet the characters, they'll probably make a fuss over it as well. It's a small thing that really means a lot to little ones.

    Another option, if you're using a stroller, is to make a birthday sign to go on it. We once saw a family pushing twins in a stroller with banners and balloons tied on, announcing their 4th birthday. It was very cute!

    Honestly, you're going to be in The Most Magical Place on Earth for his very special day - what more could one wish for?!?! :)

    Have a great vacation!
