    My granddaughter and I share a birthday which is March 23rd and we cruise on May 22 can we get a birthday cake and celebrate on board or does it have to be the exact date?

    Welcome back, Jan! And a big happy birthday to you tomorrow! Happy birthday to your granddaughter too! What a wonderful birthday gift you will both enjoy when you get to set sail in a few months with Captain Mickey and his crew! I can't wait for you to experience all of the magic of sailing with Disney Cruise Line!

    When you board the ship, be sure to get a birthday button from Guest Services. Cast Members, Disney characters, and even other guests seem to go out of their way to wish those who are celebrating a very happy birthday. Your granddaughter will especially love this special attention.

    Go ahead and add a note to your cruise reservation saying that you're celebrating both birthdays onboard. It doesn't matter when the birthdays were, Disney is happy to celebrate with you! Your dining servers will sing a special birthday song one night at dinner and present you each with a special dessert. If you'd like to order a specialty cake, you can certainly do that! There are some really fun options! They can be presented at dinner one night or even delivered to your stateroom. And did you know that you can pre-order birthday decorations for your stateroom? Last year, my friends back home surprised me by ordering birthday decor in my stateroom so when I arrived my family and I were greeted with a floor to ceiling celebration! What a great way to begin our cruise! Both the cakes and the birthday decor can be pre-ordered on the Gifts and Amenities page of Disney Cruise Line's website, so check that out!

    Have such fun, Jan!
