    How can I make a birthday special onboard?

    Hi Julie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Celebrating a birthday onboard a Disney Cruise Line vacation is just the best!  I was fortunate enough to celebrate MY own birthday while onboard earlier this year and it was super special and very memorable!  In fact, can I do it again next year?!?!  

    First things first, if you haven’t done so yet, make sure your reservation is noted that someone will be celebrating their special day while onboard!  You can do this by contacting Disney Cruise Line or simply selecting the celebration on your “My Reservation” account.  This will notify the Cast Members onboard that someone will be celebrating during the voyage.  Birthdays will usually be celebrated during dinner service one night during your voyage but if there is a specific night you want it celebrated, be sure to communicate that with your dining room server.  You can also arrange for an In-Room Gift which is a fun and exciting touch to make the celebration even more exciting!  If you are celebrating the birthday of a little Mouseketeer, a makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is always a way to commemorate the special day!  If a big kid is celebrating their birthday, an adult-exclusive dinner at Palo or Remy would be an excellent way to celebrate!

    Stop by the Guest Services desk when you get onboard and pick up a special “It’s my Birthday!” button for the Guest of Honor to wear on their special day – or even ALL week long…because celebrating a birthday is a BIG DEAL and worth celebrating for more than just one day!

    Wishing you a magical voyage with many memories made!

    Happy Sailing!
