My husband and I are taking our 4 year old on his first Disney vacation in 4 weeks!! This is also our first visit in about 12 years, so I am sure some things have changed...we want to do something special for him, but not break the bank. Any suggestions?

There's nothing more special than a child's first visit to the happiest place on Earth!
The first thing you can do is pick up a complimentary "1st Visit" button at Guest Services as soon as you arrive at any of the Theme Parks. It's a wonderful souvenir, cast members and sometimes even guests will congratulate him on his first visit. And you never know when a little extra magic will come his way just because he's wearing his 1st visit button!
You should consider a character dining experience. Although these meals can get expensive, try to book a breakfast buffet. Chef Mickey's
is my favorite!
At his age, characters are usually the most exciting part of the whole experience. Just to be sure that you don't miss any of your sons favorite characters, pick up a Times Guide to find out when and where you can find them.
Have a magical vacation and a wonderful first visit for your son!
