    I am taking my son for his 5th in February. We are celebrating my sons 3rd birthday!! Since we've been he's very familiar with Disney. What do you recommend for a special birthday surprise for a 3 year old? Anything goes, he only turns 3 once!

    Hi, Lindsey!

    A birthday celebration in Walt Disney World is simply awesome.  Make sure you make a note on your reservation that you are celebrating a birthday.  Last week when I was in Walt Disney World for my own birthday, I had a special celebration birthday phone message waiting for me when we arrived in our resort room. It was so much fun to have Mickey wishing me a happy day!  The wonderful Cast Members at check-in also had a personalized birthday button waiting for me which I wore proudly my entire vacation.

    For a super-duper over the top surprise, visit  Take a look at their In Room Birthday Celebration.  The Mickey and Pals Big Birthday Wish is my very favorite package.  I was treated to this package a few years ago.  What an amazing surprise to walk into your resort room filled with glorious gift boxes full of birthday magic!  I really liked that there was so much to take home.  For each family birthday, I hang up the fun Mickey Happy Birthday banner in my house to make at-home birthdays magical!

    To add to the special day, make sure you book a favorite character meal which is always a blast.  In lieu of an autograph book, bring two things:  An oversized birthday card and a photo mat for an 8X10 picture. Have the characters sign these.  The card will be a great keepsake and then you can have a favorite birthday snapshot enlarged to an 8X10 to use with the signed mat. 

    Try these ideas for your handsome prince's 3rd birthday.  Wishing your little guy the most magical of birthdays in Walt Disney World!
