    I'm embarking on my first DCL cruise aboard the Dream soon to celebrate a birthday! ! know we can order room deco, but we have a special theme & will be bringing our own. How do we hang it inside the room? No adhesives, but do magnets work? Thanks

    Welcome aboard, Shannon!

    Spending your birthday onboard the Disney Dream is such a magical way to celebrate! I've celebrated two birthdays at sea with Disney Cruise Line and they were definitely the best ones yet!

    It sounds like you've got some really fun decorations planned! You're correct that Disney offers fun decoration packages for birthdays and other special events, which can be pre-purchased on the Gifts and Amenities page of Disney Cruise Line's website. These decorations are put up before the guests arrive in their staterooms. My friends surprised me by pre-ordering stateroom decorations for my birthday when my family and I sailed earlier this year. We were so surprised to walk into our stateroom for the first time to see all of the brightly colored decorations welcoming us aboard! What a treat!

    You're welcome to bring your own decorations too, if you'd like. Disney does not allow adhesives of any type to be used, as those can ruin the walls, doors, and ceiling, however, magnets are fine.

    Also, swing by the Guest Services desk to pick up a Disney Cruise Line birthday button! The Cast Members and Disney characters really go out of their way to make birthday guests feel special when they see them wearing the button!

    So, have fun planning and crafting as you get ready to head out to sea with Captain Mickey and his crew, Shannon, and have a very happy birthday!
