    Hi, we will be visiting in September, when my daughter will turn 21. Can you recommend some restaurants that will make a fuss of her,but also have a fabulous cocktail menu. Can we also order cake and gifts to the restaurant too?

    Hi Alison!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    I am excited to hear your daughter is turning 21 at Walt Disney World, and I'm happy to help you plan the most magical birthday for her.

    Are you staying at a Disney Resort hotel?  Collect a Celebration Birthday Button from the Front Desk of your resort hotel, or any Guest Relations – I would wear it every day of my holiday!  You never know, you might get some extra attention from Cast Members around the Resort! (not guaranteed!)

    In Room Floral & Gifts will decorate your Disney Resort hotel room!   Take a look around their website - for some inspiration.  They deliver balloons, flowers, and gift baskets to make your room look spectacular!

    Narcoossee's, at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, is my favourite restaurant at Walt Disney World, and is worthy of any special occasion.  I love the location - on the waterfront overlooking Seven Seas Lagoon, with a view of Cinderella Castle by day, and - if you time it right - the Magic Kingdom fireworks by night.  It's so magical when they turn down the lights and pipe the music into the restaurant!  You can also choose to step outside on the deck for an even better view.  There are some pretty amazing cocktails on offer - you can see them here on the dinner menu.  

    You could forego dessert at the restaurant (I couldn’t miss out on the Almond-crusted Cheesecake for anything, but that’s just me!) and book a Fireworks Dessert Party at Magic Kingdom Park.  You can take a short boat ride to the park from the dock just by the side of the restaurant.

    Mickey Mouse Celebration Cakes can be ordered for delivery to your table when you make your dining reservation. Don't forget to mention that you are celebrating your daughter's 21st birthday!

    If you would prefer something a little more fancy, Amorette’s Patisserie will take orders for gorgeous cakes.  These are available for collection from the store at Disney Springs, to take back to your hotel room.  

    Are you visiting Magic Kingdom Park on her birthday, or close to the date? How about a Capture Your Moment photo session to celebrate your special occasion?  I highly recommend this - you'll receive some stunning downloadable photos from a 20-minute session.  I can't think of a more magical keepsake for your entire family.  Other theme park locations are also available.   

    Stop by the balloon seller on Main Street USA at Magic Kingdom Park!  I remember when I was 19, myself and my best friend tied balloons to our wrists!  I would still do that several decades later!  You are never too old for a Mickey balloon.  You probably won't be allowed to take it into a restaurant, but they are great decorations for your hotel room!

    I hope I've given you some inspired ideas for your daughter's special birthday - please come back and visit us if you have any further questions - you can send me a direct follow-up question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday!
