    Visiting disney world in December to celebrate my sons 5th birthday. What character dining reservations would you suggest? Thank you!

    Hi Kerry:

    My boys, now 8 and 7, have been traveling to Disney World since they were infants.

    For character meals, I love Chef Mickey’s, where it's a non-stop party. Every vacation, my boys insist on eating at Chef Mickey's - for breakfast, dinner, or both. The energy at Chef Mickey's is incredible. My boys not only enjoy the huge buffet, but their smiles shine when Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Pluto, and Minnie stop by the table to pose for pictures and sign autographs.

    Cape May Café is wonderful too. It's a delicious and fun beach-themed breakfast usually featuring Goofy, Minnie, and Donald. We even had a surprise visit from Goofy's seldom-seen son Max at our last meal at Cape May Café. Enjoy Mickey Waffles, fresh-baked pastries, fresh fruit and yogurt bar, and other favorites. If you ever wanted to know what Donald, Goofy, and Minnie look like in their swim-wear, you should definitely check out Cape May Café.

    Hollywood & Vine features favorite Disney Junior characters at breakfast and lunch, so your son can meet some of his favorite tv characters.

    Your son may also be in the perfect age group to enjoy breakfast at Crystal Palace with Pooh and friends.

    I'm not sure how long your trip is, but you probably don't need more than a couple of character meals.

    Don't forget to stop by Guest Relations at any of the theme parks to pick up a birthday button.

    Enjoy your vacation.
