    We are going on a cruise on September 8th to celebrate the kids birthdays but especially (which they recently had) to celebrate the end of my round of chemo for cancer. How do I make it a secial cruise?

    Ahoy, Rosemarie!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I got chills while reading your question! There is so much you and your family will be celebrating aboard Disney Cruise Line this upcoming September! Celebrating your kids' birthdays onboard with Captain Mickey will be unforgettable! I can't even begin to imagine the strength it took to get through your round of chemotherapy. You deserve this upcoming vacation with your family and I'm honored to help come up with some ideas to make it a truly magical one!

    It's very popular to design matching shirts to commemorate your Disney Cruise Line voyage. I think it would be extra special for each member of your family to have what they're celebrating put onto the back of their shirt and have the front of their shirt say the family's name and date of cruise! You can wear them on the same day and get a family photo taken by one of the onboard photographers!

    Another festive idea is to decorate the inside of your stateroom! Take a look at the Gifts & Amenities page on Disney Cruise Line's website at the different celebratory decorations you can order in advance and have "magically" set up upon your arrival! Your kids will be so surprised the moment they walk through the door! Be sure to call the agents at Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 to notify them that you're celebrating birthdays and the completion of your round of chemotherapy! They will make a note on your reservation of both celebrations and it will be given to your Serving Team in the Main Dining restaurants. There's a good chance they'll create a special surprise for you and your family one night during your voyage!

    Rosemarie, I'll be sending you pixie-dusted thoughts throughout your entire voyage next month!
