    We will be going on a cruise in Nov, We sail out on my daughters birthday. Any recommendations? She will be turning 3.

    Welcome aboard, Talita! Your daughter is about to celebrate such a magical birthday at sea with Captain Mickey and his crew! I have been fortunate enough to celebrate two of my own birthdays at sea with Disney Cruise Line, and they have been the best ones yet!

    If you haven't already, be sure to add a note to your reservation that lets Disney know that you'll be celebrating your daughter's birthday onboard. Your dining servers that night will make her feel very special with a song and special dessert. Stop by Guest Services to grab a birthday button when you board the ship that day too. The Cast Members and Disney characters go out of their way to give extra attention to birthday guests!

    You may want to book a princess makeover for your birthday girl in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. My daughter was magically transformed into Snow White by the Fairy Godmothers-in-training on the Disney Fantasy, and it was such a magical memory! Seeing her dance and twirl her way through the halls after her makeover was so special, and when she met Snow White, dressed just like her, Snow White took her hand and the two skipped around together while I watched with tears in my eyes! My daughter was elated! Your little princess will have the birthday of her life with a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover!

    There are additional birthday treats available for pre-order on the Gifts and Amenities page of Disney Cruise Line's website. I loved when my friends surprised me with birthday decorations in my stateroom. They had ordered them from home, and we opened our stateroom door to a brightly decorated birthday stateroom! What a treat! Specialty cakes are also available, along with some other birthday packages. 

    Have fun planning, Talita!
