    We will be celebrating our 11th Anniversary and my sons 10th birthday while in board. How do I have something special planned for these? Or what are the options?

    Welcome aboard, Heidi! Happy early anniversary to you and your husband, and happy early birthday to your son! Double digits - that's a big one! Setting sail on a Disney Cruise Line vacation is the perfect way to celebrate these big occasions! I've spent two of my recent birthdays at sea with Disney, and they've been the best ones yet. Disney offers so many ways to make the celebration extra magical.

    If you haven't already, be sure to call the agents at Disney Cruise Line to add a note to your reservation letting them know you'll be celebrating those two events onboard. One night at dinner, your dining service team will sing happy birthday to your son and present him with a special dessert. The same for your anniversary if you'd like! You can also swing by Guest Services to pick up a celebration button to wear. Your son will especially get a kick out of the fact that wearing a birthday button around garners all kinds of extra attention from Cast Members, Disney Characters, and even other guests! It'll be a hit!

    Now, if you'd like to make the celebrations even more magical, there are all sorts of extra options you can add from stateroom decorations to specialty cakes and more. Check out the Gifts and Amenities section of the Disney Cruise Line website for pre-cruise ordering details. During one of my birthday cruises, my friends back home surprised me by pre-ordering birthday decorations for my stateroom. When my family and I opened the door for the first time on embarkation day, we were greeted with floor to ceiling decor! What an amazing way to begin the trip!

    Have fun planning these celebrations, Heidi!
