    My son is giving up his birthday party this year to use the money to go to Disney.. His birthday is June 16th but our trip is the first week of July.. is there any special birthday things you can do for kids celebrating at Disney??

    Hello Victoria! Your son sounds like he would fit right in with us on the Panel. We've always got Disney on the brain, and any extra money goes straight to our Disney fund. You didn't mention how old he is turning, but I can give you some suggestions on how to celebrate that would fit almost any age group.

    *In-room celebrations- Surprise your son with an in-room Birthday Celebration. You can order these special packages online. When he walks into your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room, he will see that Mickey has left him special birthday treats.

    *Birthday cake- Order a birthday cake for your son to celebrate his special day. Cakes are available at most Table Service Restaurants, but make sure to call at least 72 hours in advance. To make an order call (407) 827-2253.

    *Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage- This is a fun way to enjoy the fireworks show at night. You get to enjoy Pirate themed snacks, meet Captain Hook & Mr. Smee, then set sail on a cruise over the Seven Seas Lagoon led by a Pirate captain. 

    *Birthday Mickey Ears- Stop by The Chapeau at The Magic Kingdom to pick up a set of Birthday-themed Mickey Mouse Ears. This colorful hat will more than likely get him lots of attention throughout the parks.

    *Character Dining Experience- Make a reservation at any of the amazing Character Dining options available so that your son can meet his favorite Disney Characters while enjoying his meal. We love Chef Mickey's, Tusker House, and The Crystal Palace.

    *IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party- How about topping off the night with a dessert party while enjoying fireworks?

    Im running out of room, but if you need anything else, please let us know. I hope your son has a magical birthday!
