    Any ideas on how to surprise my husband and kids for his 60th birthday on the Disney Cruise?

    Hi Marissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Oooo! I'm so excited at the thought of your husband's 60th birthday celebration aboard a Disney Cruise! Sailing the high seas with Captain Mickey is so much fun to begin with, but when you add a birthday celebration it brings the fun to a whole different level! We've celebrated multiple birthdays aboard Disney Cruise Line. I'd be happy to give you some ideas of how to surprise your husband while onboard.

    The first stop I'd suggest making before setting sail is the Gifts and Amenities page on the Disney Cruise Line website. There you'll find birthday-themed decorations as well as celebration cakes that will "magically" appear inside your stateroom upon your arrival! He'll be so surprised when he opens the door to see everything decorated! Next, once you're onboard, stop by the Guest Services Desk and ask for a birthday button for your husband to wear throughout your cruise! Cast Members, Characters and Guests will give him well-wishes each day! Be sure to mention his birthday to your Server and Assistant Server at your Main Dining restaurant on the first night of your voyage. They will celebrate his birthday one night of your cruise! Finally, I recommend booking a romantic dinner for just the two of you at the adult-exclusive restaurant, Palo.

    Another way we've celebrated while cruising is designing matching T-shirts to commemorate the voyage for each person in my family and taking a family photo by one of the professional photographers onboard! Such a special occasion, like a birthday, deserves special matching shirts, right? Haha!

    I had so much fun answering your question! Please visit us again with any future questions before your husband's upcoming birthday cruise!
