    Hey Moms! We will be heading to our very 1st cruise in 3 weeks! This is our way of celebrating my son's 11th BD (Sept 7) without him missing too much school. Is there anything we can plan for his BD even though it wont really be his birthday?

    We once cruised with Disney two weeks after my son’s official birthday.

    First, I ordered a Stateroom Celebration package which included having our stateroom decorated with a birthday banner. When our son opened the door to the cabin and saw the decorations, he was so excited that Mickey remembered his birthday. Then, he noticed the cake waiting for him on the table! It was worth the extra cost, however, you could also bring your own decorations.

    Also, let Disney Cruise Line know about your child’s birthday. Have it noted on your reservation! At dinner, the birthday boy will receive a cake presented by singing servers. Do not hesitate to remind your Head Server about the celebration.

    Also, you may want to arrange a surprise shore excursion such as a day at Atlantis Aquaventure. If your son enjoys fishing, consider Castaway Cay’s Bottom Fishing excursion.

    Disney inspires families to celebrate special occasions. Your family can enjoy your son’s birthday during your entire cruise or choose a specific day for his birthday surprises. Start the day by ordering In-room cookies or a Mickey Ice Cream bar - for breakfast. Your son is sure to realize that it’s a special day!
