    Hi. We will be visiting the parks between May 21 and May 27 this year. We will celebrate my 7 years son birthday (which is May 18). I'd like suggestions that he has an amazing experience! We'll be in a group of 8 adults and 3 children.

    First off, welcome to the Moms Panel, Patricia!  There are so many ways to celebrate and make your son feel special at Disney on his birthday.  Let me start with a few suggestions.  When you make any of your Advance Dining Reservations, be sure to mention that you are celebrating a birthday.  You never know what surprise you may get at the restaurants.  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, be sure to mention the birthday at check-in.  Your son will be given a birthday button to wear.  I bet he smiles from EAR to EAR when he hears how many people will wish him a "Happy Birthday" along the way.  If you are not staying at a Disney Resort, you can also request these buttons at any Guest Relations window in any of the 4 Parks.  Cast Member keep their eyes open for those pins. I've warned you! 

    For your group, I would strongly consider booking a VIP fireworks cruise to view Illuminations at Epcot or Wishes at Magic Kingdom.  You can even have the boat decorated and order a birthday cake!  Although this link says the cruise is for up to 10 people, they will go up to a maximum of 12 people if you have a mix of adults and kids.  Be sure to mention this if you decide to book.  

    I hope you son has an amazing birthday, and I wish you a MAGICAL vacation!
