    We are so excited !!! We just booked our First Disney Cruise !! Disney Magic on Nov 27,2016 celebrating my little Princess Bianca 4Th birthday. Any tips of how can I make it a very special day. Last year we celebrated at Disneyworld, she loved it :)thanks

    Welcome aboard, Rita! An adventure at sea with Disney Cruise Line is a magical birthday gift in itself for your sweet princess, but there are so many opportunities to make the trip even more special for your birthday girl! I celebrated my birthday at sea with Disney Cruise Line earlier this year and it was one of the best ones yet!

    Be sure to add a note to your reservation about celebrating her birthday onboard. This information is given to your dining service team so that they can recognize her at dinner that night with a song and special dessert! Then, swing by Guest Services to pick up a birthday button for her to wear. The Cast Members and Disney characters onboard (and other guests, I've found too!) really go out of their way to make birthday guests feel very special!

    Check out the Gifts and Amenities section of Disney Cruise Line's website where you can pre-order special decorations, cakes, or gifts to be waiting in your stateroom when you arrive. My friends surprised me by ordering birthday decorations for my stateroom when my family and I sailed a few months ago. When we opened the door that first day, I was greeted with colorful birthday decorations hanging from the ceiling and all around the room! What a wonderful start to my birthday cruise it was! I'm sure your daughter would delight in the decorations just for her too!

    Finally, as you begin online check-in, see if you can schedule an appointment for her at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for a princess makeover! My daughter had the time of her life being transformed into Snow White there and it's something she'll remember forever. That would be the ultimate birthday memory for your little princess!

    Have a wonderful cruise, Rita!
