    My son is in the military and is leaving for japan this year. My daughter and grand son also have a birthday on the 22nd of July. Is there anything special I can do for them?

    Hi Sharon,

    Celebrating birthdays and special occasions at the Walt Disney World Resort is just about as magical as it gets! Be sure to get "Happy Birthday" Celebration Recognition Buttons for your daughter and grandson. You can ask for them when you check-in at your Resort Hotel or at Guest Relations and merchandise locations in the Theme Parks. It's so much fun to have Cast Members and Guests share in your celebration! 
    In my opinion, Ferrytale Wishes: A Fireworks Dessert Cruise would be a fabulous way to celebrate the birthdays and your son's send off to Japan. The Cruise takes place aboard the iconic General Joe Potter ferryboat. You'll enjoy a voyage full of delicious desserts, specialty beverages, and a gorgeous view of the Wishes nighttime spectacular. Advanced Reservations are required and highly recommended and can be made by calling (407) 939-3463. Admission is $99 for adults and $69 for children ages 3 to 9 years old. The price includes a Souvenir Palette Plate & Glow Glass.

    Another suggestion would be to make an Advanced Dining Reservation at Sanaa in Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. The menu is fantastic and just outside the Restaurant there's a gorgeous view of the savanna where you can see giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, and a variety of other animals. It will be a unique and memorable place to celebrate your special occasions! 

    Please visit us again if you have any additional vacation planning questions, and please give your son my thanks for his service to our country!

    Magical Wishes,
