    We will be at WDW for my son's 1st birthday. Where is the best place to eat or visit to really celebrate his special day (April 3rd)? (Price does not matter!)

    How fun to celebrate your son's first birthday at WDW.  I have a few ideas for dinner to celebrate his birthday that would let your son mark the special day with the best of Disney!  My first thought is Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary to celebrate with the classic characters:  Mickey, Goofy, Pluto, Donald, and Minnie.  The other two dining ideas would let him get more "talking interaction" with characters and probably lots of special attention by being surrounded by Disney princesses (also, the princesses aren't quite as intimidating as the larger characters can sometimes be to little ones).  Two places to eat with the princesses are Cinderella's Royal Table for breakfast/lunch.  And this meal comes with a photo package and is a bit more intimate.  Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot (at Norway) for breakfast, lunch, or dinner is the other restaurant to dine with princesses.  I would make sure and let all the characters know it is your son's birthday, too.  I think he will become an instant prince in their eyes!  Finally, did you know you can order a cake for the celebration?  Once you have your advanced dining reservations, you can call the cake hotline at 1-407-827-2253 to make arrangements for the special day.
