    I will be going on a cruise in December 2019. We are doing it as a combined birthday for my nephew whose birthday in September, my daughter whose birthday in October. Since their birthdays are not within a month will they still celebrate on board?

    Hi Nicole!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited for your family’s upcoming celebratory Disney Cruise Line vacation!  You will have just the best time onboard the beautiful Disney Fantasy – with so much to do, your biggest hurdle will be how to fit it all in!!

    In my opinion, there is always something to celebrate when on a Disney Cruise Line vacation, but onboard is an extra special place to celebrate a birthday!!  Celebrating onboard is ALWAYS a good idea and your cruise definitely doesn’t have to fall on the exact day – or month even – to celebrate the special occasion!  I do recommend contacting Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 ahead of your sailing to have them note your reservation or you can make this notation on your “My Disney Cruise” account under “Special Requests” so that arrangements can be made to celebrate the special Guests!!  Celebrations usually happen in the main dining room during dinner service one night, so if you have a particular night you would like to celebrate, discuss with your server ahead of time!  It’s also fun to stop by Guest Services to pick up a celebration button for the birthday kiddos to wear so everyone knows there is a celebration!!

    Since they may not be expecting it, another fun surprise could be to arrange for a birthday package from In-Room Gifts & Amenities!  How fun would it be to surprise them with a decorated stateroom?!?  Or a special makeover for Pirate Night at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique??  No matter what, though, this will be a birthday celebration that they won’t forget!!

    Wishing you a wonderful celebration onboard!

    Happy Sailing!
