    It's my daughter's birthday I want to surprise her, and I want the room decorated. How do I go about it

    Ahoy there, Folasayo! Welcome aboard!

    Oh my goodness, it's so exciting that your daughter gets to celebrate her birthday onboard one of the incredible Disney Cruise Line ships. That's a total bucket list request for me - all of my birthdays onboard a Disney ship

    Folasayo, I'm going to recommend that you get in touch with Disney Cruise Line right now about decorating your stateroom for your celebration. There is indeed a total package that will give your stateroom a birthday overlay, but in-room gifts and amenities like this must be ordered at least three days prior to your sailing. You can find the Birthday Wishes Stateroom Decor by entering your reservation number for your upcoming sailing.

    I also recommend notifying the Cruise Line either by phone or email right away that you'll be celebrating. They can often plan some special acknowledgment during one of the meals in the dining room during your sailing. While the recommended time to notify them is three weeks prior to departure, I would still give them the information about your upcoming birthday celebration. You just never know where pixie dust may fall, and they might be able to at the very least put a candle in a dessert to make the evening a little more special, even at the last minute.

    I hope you have a magical, memorable sailing, Folasayo.
