    My daughter turns 16 on our cruise date. Can i bring her to dinner at Palo to celebrate even thou shes not 18??

    Hi, John! Welcome to planDisney. My pals and I are happy to have you on board with us. 

    Happy soon-to-be Sweet 16 to your daughter! There is no better birthday gift than a Disney Cruise in my opinion. How lovely that you will be able to celebrate together onboard. Unfortunately, the age requirements for Palo are such that children under the age of 18 are not permitted to dine in this adult-exclusive restaurant. I do have some suggestions, however, to make her birthday an extra special one. 

    I recommend browsing through the Onboard Gifts page of the Disney Cruise Line website. You may want to purchase room decor, flowers, or a cake to be delivered for her birthday. It's also a great idea to let Disney Cruise Line know you will be celebrating a special occasion onboard. If your daughter likes pampering, consider booking a treatment at the Chill Spa, (onboard the Disney Wonder, Magic, Dream, and Fantasy) exclusively for teens. Treatments can be booked once you board the ship, so head to Senses Spa on embarkation day if you are interested. If you'll be sailing on the Disney Wish, consider reserving a pampering experience at Untangled Salon. This luxury salon pays homage to the adventurous princess, Rapunzel. This space is filled with charming details and offers a variety of treatment options. 

    I hope your daughter has the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER! While onboard, consider booking a placeholder reservation within the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. A placeholder booking can be used to secure a sailing at a discount within 24 months of the date it is booked. That way you could return in two years for a birthday celebration at Palo if you so choose. 

    Have an amazing voyage and please sail back to planDisney any time. It's a pleasure to help!
