    We're taking our twins to WDW 11/3-11/7, to celebrate their 7th bday. Any suggestions for a celebration there (besides the awesomeness of being there)? They're not into costumed character meals; other options for young kids to mark birthdays? Many TIA!

    Hello, Britta!

    The Walt Disney World Resort is my favorite place to celebrate a special occasion! Where else could a child travel around the World (Showcase) in one afternoon or embark on a trip to Neverland with Peter Pan and friends? Your twins are sure to have a wonderful time at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    You mentioned that your children are not interested in dining with characters, but did you know that you can turn just about any table-service restaurant into a birthday celebration by ordering a customized birthday cake? You can choose from a variety of cakes and shapes with just 72 hours advance notice. To order a custom bakery cake, make sure to call the Walt Disney World Resort at (407) 827-2253. Please note that this option does require advanced reservations. If you prefer to be spontaneous, you may be able to order a chocolate or vanilla 6-inch cake when you arrive at most table-service restaurants.

    If you plan to stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you will have the option of ordering an In-Room Celebration from Disney Floral & Gifts. You can choose from a number of characters and surprises to make your twins' birthday even more special.

    Make sure to pick up a complimentary 'Happy Birthday!' button for your twins from Guest Relations at any of the theme parks. The button does not guarantee any additional pixie dust or 'perks,' but it is a great way for your twins to feel recognized on their special day.

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful birthday celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort, Britta! Please don't hesitate to stop back by the Moms Panel if you have any additional questions. Happy planning!
