    We are going on a 4-day cruise in February on the Magic and my son will be turning 2. Do they offer any birthday celebration options onboard?

    Welcome aboard, Josie! Enjoying a birthday at sea with Captain Mickey is the best way to celebrate! I had a magical birthday earlier this year aboard the Disney Dream, and I just know that your son will have such a special day on the Disney Magic in a couple of months!

    If you haven't already, be sure to add a note to your reservation that lets Disney know that you'll be celebrating his birthday onboard. Your dining servers will sing a song and present him with a special dessert at dinner that night. Of course, there are lots of extras that you can plan to make the birthday even more special! Swing by Guest Services to pick up a birthday button for him to wear. Cast Members, and even other guests, really go out of their way to make birthday boys like your son feel special when they see them sporting that pin!

    Check out the fun options you can pre-order for his birthday on the Gifts and Amenities section of Disney Cruise Line's website. Specialty cakes can be delivered to your stateroom or served at dinner. But, my favorite are the birthday stateroom decorations! My friends back home pre-ordered those as a surprise when I sailed over my birthday earlier this year. My family and I opened our stateroom door that first day to be greeted with ceiling to floor birthday celebration decorations! What a fun way to begin our cruise! I'm sure your little guy would be thrilled to walk into a sea of birthday décor just for him too!

    Have so much fun onboard, Josie!
