    We will be visiting Disney for the very first time in Feb 2018. While there our daughter will turn 4! On that day I would love to take her to have breakfast with the princesses or Mickey & Minnie & Im not sure where to start. Could you help me?

    Hi Kristan,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Mickey and Minnie Mouse love to celebrate birthdays at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I hope that you have already booked your vacation package at a Walt Disney World resort hotel. If not, I suggest that you do that immediately. If you stay at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can make dining reservations 180 days in advance for up to 10 days of your trip. Since character meals can get booked quickly, I recommend that you make your dining reservations on day 180. Our favorite princess meals are Cinderella's Royal Table, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall and Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare. Cinderella's Royal Table may be more expensive but the experience of dining in the castle is priceless. Be sure your princess dresses like royalty!

    Some of our other favorite character meals are Chef Mickey's, The Crystal Palace and Hollywood & Vine. Our girls love getting in the party line at The Crystal Palace and hugging Mickey and Minnie Mouse at Chef Mickey's.

    Kristan, make sure you have created a My Disney Experience account. Link your resort hotel reservation to that account and add your family members to your "My Family & Friends" list. As long as you are logged into your My Disney Experience account when making dining reservations, those reservations should automatically link to your account. 

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
