When I asked Joey where he would celebrate his birthday if we were in Walt Disney World, without hesitation, he said Chef Mickey's. Chef Mickey's would probably be tops on the character meal list for my children. The character interaction, the food and being able to watch the monorail pass by every once in a while just can't be beat in the eyes of an eight year old, or so I thought!

After sharing his memories of the character interactions he had that day, he told me how nice it was of Pluto's friend to say she would talk to Pluto if we had missed him. Then he said, that is why I like Chef Mickey's because everyone is so nice. So in the end, it wasn't just the characters or the food or the monorail sightings, it was this particular cast member who saw one sad little boy, lifted his spirits and now her kindness and how it made Joey feel are part of the reason he loves Chef Mickey's and would choose to celebrate his birthday there.
So, a very happy birthday to my Joey,
absolutely one of the kindest, sweetest kids I know (even though I "may" be a little bias!)
