    My son is turning eight on March 12, 2017 and we will be visiting Magic Kingdom on that day. What are some fun things we can do for his birthday?

    Hi, Cindy!

    There is no better place to celebrate a birthday than Walt Disney World! The first thing you should do is stop by your front desk and ask for a free "Happy Birthday" button for your son to wear. This way, everyone knows he is celebrating a special day.

    Plan ahead with a birthday card to use in lieu of an autograph book. Each character can sign this and the card will be a great keepsake of this fun day. You may even want to mention to your servers at table service restaurants that you have a birthday boy with you - a sweet treat might be brought out at the end of your meal.

    Birthday gifts are a snap at WDW, as a Disney Gift Card is a "one size fits all!" Everyone loves a gift card, then your son can choose a fun gift to remind him of his special day. For a special surprise, order a delivery from Disney Floral and Gifts. They can create some really fun birthday surprises!

    Wishing your son the most magical birthday ever! Enjoy!

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!
