    Hi! We'll be visiting August 2015 to celebrate our son's 8th birthday. I've made most of our advanced dining reservations online through MDE. Is there anyway to still get his birthday recognized at the restaurants??? Can I call the dining reservation hotli

    Hi there Katherine Ashley!

    How exciting to be planning a Walt Disney World vacation to celebrate your son's birthday! I am happy to report that you can call Disney Dining at (407)WDW-DINE or (407)939-3463, and have the friendly Cast Member make a note of your son's birthday on your Advanced Dining Reservation. This should alert the restaurant that you will be celebrating your son's birthday.  When you check-in for your meal, be sure to remind the Cast Member at the hostess stand of your son's birthday celebration. How a birthday is recognized is at the discretion of the restaurant. On several occasions, our children have been given a yummy cupcake with Mickey sprinkles when celebrating their special day. 

    I hope this information is helpful. Please don't hesitate to visit us again with any additional questions. On behalf of the Disney Parks Moms Panel, I would like to wish your son a "Happy Birthday" and a magical birthday trip!

    Happy Celebrating,
