    We are gearing up for our 6 night cruise next week on the Disney Wonder out of New Orleans! We will celebrate Mardi Gras and our son's 2nd birthday. What options are there for us to celebrate the birthday boy on board?

    Ahoy Greta!

    I am so happy to "sea" you again!  Thank you for cruising back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with another great question.  Can you believe you are less than a week away from your high seas adventure with Captain Mickey?  Your entire pirate crew is going to have a buccaneer blast celebrating your son's birthday next week!

    Before you set out for the Disney Wonder, contact Disney Cruise Line to let them know you will be celebrating onboard!  If you act quickly, you can also take advantage of the fun birthday stateroom décor offered by Onboard Gifts and Amenities.  It is too close to your cruise to order a cake, but all other orders can be placed up to three days before you set sail.

    Once onboard the ship, head to the Guest Services Desk and ask them for a special "I'm Celebrating!" button for your son to wear throughout your vacation.  It is also a great souvenir!  Then, during dinner in one of the rotational dining rooms on the first night, talk to your service team and let them know you are celebrating your son's birthday.  Tell them what night you want to celebrate and they will make sure to make it a special evening for you!

    For an extra pixie-dusted memory, why not consider a transformation fit for a prince (or maybe a pirate?) at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!  Capture this and every other memory you share with your entire pirate crew during this birthday voyage with a photography package and take home all the magic with you.

    Have fun blowing out the candles with your little one next week, Greta!  Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail.

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
