    Hi we are visiting Wdw for my 40th. Any suggestions what I should do on the actual night? Staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge with husband and two children aged 8 and 2. Want to have great experience for all the family. A true time to remember.

    Hi Susan,

    Guess what!  I celebrated my fortieth birthday at Walt Disney World too.  It is the perfect place to celebrate any landmark birthday.

    Here's what I recommend for your birthday:  Make a reservation at your favorite table service restaurant by calling (407) WDW-DINE 180 days in advance of your dinner.  Choose a family-friendly restaurant since your little ones will be with you.  Perhaps you'd enjoy 1900 Park Fare or 'Ohana.  Then head out on your very own fireworks cruise after dinner.  There's no better place to enjoy the fireworks above Cinderella Castle than on your own private boat parked on the Seven Seas Lagoon.  Trust me; it's magical!  You can book these cruises by calling (407) WDW-PLAY. 

    If this birthday plan doesn't appeal to you, no problem.  Just submit a follow-up question and we'll give you some more ideas.

    Best wishes for a magical birthday!
