    Hello Canadian Disney fans,
    My wife and I just booked a Disney trip for 2011. We will be bringing our 4 year old son.

    This will be our 5th trip (second with our son). We took him to WDW when he was 2 1/2.

    We are going from April 2 to 9 and will be staying at "All Star Movies." That should be fun since our son is into the "Toy Story" characters.

    We are about to start planning our Dining reservations (since we are now 73 days out).

    Here are some ideas we have so far:

    Mama Melrose in DStudios (with Fantasmic package)

    Cinderella's Royal table dinner (because we have an extra day meals for 7th day when we will be travelling)

    Chef Mickey's for Breakfast

    Disney family tour at Magic Kingdom (is this worth the $35, we have never done a tour)

    Thank you

    I have a question:

    My sons birthday isnt until July but when we are at WDW in April, would it be okay to mention that is our sons birthday?

    He will be turning 5.

    Thank you

    Certainly mention it. ; You can go to guest services building at the Magic Kingdom and they will a CM there with buttons and you can a button with Happy Birthday and his name on it.

    My girls birthdays' are a month apart - and we usually go right in the middle of both (March Break). I call it their birthday vacation. ; :D ; In the past, I've gotten them birthday pins, but had the CMs put their actual birthdate under their name and age -- because it wasn't their actual "birth week." ; The CMs in Disney really don't care though.

    They have "I'm Celebrating" pins too -- if you want, you can get that one and put "XXX's birthday trip" on it.

    We haven't eaten at the rest of them, but I would say you got some great reservations

    My IL's ate at tutto italia and were thrilled with it!

    Do you have your parks mixed up for april 4 and 5??

    No not really.

    We just made a plan of what parks to go to in the mornings, go to the resort for a swim mid afternoon, then back to a particular park where our dinner reservation is.
