    Taking my 4 & 5 year old boys to DW Jan 21-25 have 4 days at the parks, no hopper, and 1 day at Disney Quest. On aVERY tight budget for food but want to take my 5 year old out one night for birthday dinner. What order of parks would u suggest & din

    Hi, Cassi!

    Happy Birthday to your little guy!  How fun to have a birthday celebration in Walt Disney World.

    Here is a sample itinerary:
    Jan 21:  Arrive, head to Epcot for the evening
    Jan 22:  Magic Kingdom
    Jan 23: Hollywood Studios
    Jan 24:  Animal Kingdom (or go back to another park you enjoyed and skip Animal Kingdom).  Head to DisneyQuest for the evening.
    Jan 25:  Time to head home.  If you have a late departure time, you can move your DisneyQuest to this morning.

    For you special birthday meal, I would suggest a character buffet for breakfast or lunch.  These meals are generally cheaper, and just as much fun!  Try Chef Mickey's (at the Contemporary) for an early breakfast or Crystal Palace (Magic Kingdom) for breakfast or lunch.    Another fun option would be the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater at Hollywood Studios where you eat your meal "under the stars" in your very own convertible.  If you want to stick to Quick Service, a birthday celebration would be fun at Pizza Planet at Hollywood Studios. 

    I hope this gives you a start!  Let me know if you need more help planning the perfect birthday celebration.  Feel free to bring along some decorations for your room, and bring an oversized birthday card for the characters to sign in lieu of an autograph book for a fun birthday keepsake!    Have a magical WDW vacation.
