    We are celebrating my daughter's 7th Birthday while cruising on the Disney Magic in January. The Itinerary says we will be at Castaway Cay on her actual Birthday. What sorts of fun things can we plan to make this Birthday extra special?

    Welcome aboard, Beckie! Setting sail with Disney Cruise Line is always special, but what makes this trip even more magical is celebrating a birthday onboard! I celebrated my birthday last year on the Disney Wonder and it was one of the best ones yet!

    If you haven't already, be sure to let your travel agent know, or call the agents at Disney Cruise Line at 800-951-3532, to have them add a note to your reservation that you'll be celebrating this big day for your daughter onboard. Your servers will be made aware and will make a really big deal out of her that night, singing "Happy Birthday" in the dining room and delivering a special treat. Be sure to stop by Guest Services to pick up a birthday button too. Cast Members, Disney characters, and even other guests, love to go out of their way to wish those wearing those buttons a happy day!

    You might consider some additional celebration packages as well. Check out the Gifts and Amenities page of Disney Cruise Line's website where, under Celebration Packages, you can view what is offered. Everything from special stateroom decorations to specialty cakes are available to pre-order. You might also consider booking a special Port Adventure as a birthday gift. Check out the fun ones that are available on Castaway Cay. Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure is a really popular one that allows you to get up close and personal with the resident stingrays around Castaway Cay. My kids loved feeding the stingrays and snorkeling around the crystal clear waters! This adventure is only an hour long, so you'll still have the entire rest of the day to explore and relax on Disney's private island. 

    Have fun as you plan and stop back again if you have other questions before you set sail in January, Beckie!
