    Going on Fantasy in 3 days w/ another couple & their 6/8 yolds. Both couples' 10 anniversary & our 5 yo has 6th b-day on last day. I want to make these special occassions! Ideas at this late date? No room avail at the Palo. :-( Maybe massages? Than

    Welcome aboard, Madora! In just a couple days, you'll be setting sail on the Fantasy! How exciting!

    I'm sorry you couldn't get a reservation at Palo, but that doesn't mean you are out of luck altogether. Guests could cancel, so I'd highly suggest checking once you're onboard to see if there are any open reservations. You might just luck out! If you can get an open time, go for it. Palo is my favorite Disney Cruise Line restaurant! It is certainly worth the extra cost! Check out reservations for Remy, too, as it is spectacular, and the perfect place to celebrate a 10th anniversary!

    You might give Disney Cruise Line a call to check about availability for a makeover in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for your five-year old. If you have a little princess, she'd love to be pampered and turned into her favorite Disney princess for the day. Or, if your five-year old is more the pirate type, he or she might just get in for a pirate makeover on Pirate Night. Those times usually book fast, and at only a few days out, you may not find a time slot still open, but it's worth a shot. Again, check once onboard to see if there were any cancellations.

    While you're on the phone with the agent, be sure to ask them to note your celebrations on your reservation, both the anniversary and the birthday. Disney Cruise Line's Cast Members love to go above and beyond to recognize those who are celebrating special occasions, and while I can't promise anything specific, your little one might have a special birthday song at dinner.

    Usually you can find open times for massages and other relaxing treatments, even once onboard, including couples' treatments at Senses Spa, so stop there the first day to check on availability. Their spa villas are wonderful private retreats for couples, included with certain treatments.

    Have a wonderful cruise, Madora! You will adore the Fantasy and have a fabulous sailing, I'm sure! Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel!
