    Hi Lisa --

    Going to Disney World is a great way to celebrate a birthday!

    The extra magic hours are available to resort guests only.  As long as you are staying at a Disney Resort, spending your first day in the Magic Kingdom is a great option.  Click HERE to find out which attractions are open during the extended hours.

    Liberty Tree Tavern has great food; however, they no longer have a character dining experience.  Chef Mickey's is a great, fun alternative.  If you're looking to stay inside the park, and your family likes Winnie the Pooh, you may want to consider Crystal Palace. They have a wonderful buffet, the character interaction is great, and the location is so convenient.
