    I have three sons ages 5, 4, and 2 one of whom is special needs. We would love to take them on a trip to Disney World to celebrate their birthdays which are all in the same month. Is there any disney attractions that cater to toddlers? and bigger kids?

    Hi Michelle!

    Your little guys would love to visit Walt Disney World on their birthday!

    Make sure to make a note on your reservation that you are celebrating three special birthdays. Your boys will receive a birthday pin when they arrive and will love hearing cast members and characters greet them with "Happy Birthday" their entire trip. 

    I would also suggest booking an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) at one of the character dining experiences to celebrate their birthdays. If they love Mickey Mouse, I would suggest reserving Chef Mickey's at The Contemporary Resort. They can meet Mickey Mouse and all of his friends and if you note on the ADR that you are celebrating their birthdays, they will even have Disney magic sprinkled on the table when you arrive and will bring out a cupcake with candles at the end of the meal. It will be an experience your kids will remember forever.

    Walt Disney World is perfect for kids and adults of all ages because there is something for everyone. There are several attractions that will appeal to all three age groups of your boys, such as Disney Junior Live! On Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios. They would also love Peter Pan's Adventure, "it's a small world" and Mickey's Phil-har-magic at Magic Kingdom.

    For you son with special needs, I also suggest visiting Guest Relations and discussing the specific's of your son's special needs with them to see if a Guest Assistance Card (GAC) would help your family during your stay. Walt Disney World will do everything they can to ensure you and your sons have a magical visit.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with! And tell your special little guys "Happy Birthday" from the WDW Moms Panel!
