    Our son will turn 2 on our trip. I know he doesn't qualify for the "extras" this year but we'd like to have a fun dinner on his birthday. I tried res for a character dinner too late. Any other suggestions?

    Hi, Courtney!  I know it's important to do something special for your son's birthday, and I hope something works out that you can get a character meal!  Have you tried to book a different time - instead of a dinner, how about a character breakfast at the Cape May Buffet or lunch at the Crystal Palace?  There are lots of character meal options, so if you are flexible on which meal, try a lunch or breakfast.

    Another option is to keep calling!  It really can happen that you will luck upon a reservation because someone has canceled!  I love it when that happens!

    If all else fails, there are other great meal experiences.  We like to go to Whispering Canyon, which just buzzes with activity; or 'Ohana, which is another great place for kids - especially if you time it so you can enjoy the Wishes fireworks display during your meal. 

    I hope your son has a wonderful birthday!
