    Hello, I'm taking my son to Disney World March 20 2011 for his birthday. He will be 8 years old. What do you suggest we do for an 8 yr old on his birthday in Disney world? I would like to include some type of special dinner.

    Hi Tawanna

    Congratulations on your visit to Walt Disney World and on your son's upcoming birthday.

    Here are some ideas to make the visit extra special:
    • Arrange a special character meal dining reservation for dinner. You usually cannot go wrong with a character meal at Chef Mickeys. For a non-character meal, he may enjoy Biergarten or Coral Reef.
    • Remember to check in at City Hall at the Magic Kingdom, or at guest relations at other parks, and pick up a birthday button. Many Cast Members will go out of their way to wish your son a Happy Birthday or greet him with a kind gesture to make the visit more memorable.
    • If you are staying on property, let the Cast Members know at check-in that it's your son's birthdays. It's possible the front desk may be able to help arrange some Disney magic for your children.
    • You also may consider contacting the Dream Makers at Disney Floral and Gifts online or at (407) WDW-GIFT or (407) 939-4438. If you are staying on property, they can help create a personalized in-room celebration featuring your childrens' favorite Disney characters. With advance notice, they can also deliver personalized gift baskets to your Disney resort or a Disney restaurant where you may be enjoying a celebratory meal.
    • Consider giving your son a pirate transformation at The Pirates League.
    • A simple treat, like buying a your son a balloon or bag of popcorn on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom, will likely bring him a huge smile.

    Enjoy this special vacation.
