    I'm trying to plan a cruise for my grandchildren ages 8,6,and 3 we would be celebrating my granddaughters 4th birthday, What would you recommend?

    Ahoy there, Lorrie! Welcome to planDisney and thank you for cruising our way.

    What lucky grandchildren you have! A Disney Cruise provides so many opportunities to celebrate and the best part of it all is making magical memories together. I can't wait for the celebration to begin. 

    Now, a Disney Cruise is an incredible birthday gift on its own, but if you are looking for a few ideas on how to take the celebration up a notch, there are plenty of options! To begin, make sure that you communicate with Disney Cruise Line that you are celebrating a birthday onboard. To do so, log into your reservation on the Disney Cruise Line website. Then, scroll down below the area that displays your stateroom information to the "Special Requests" section. From here, you may indicate that you'll be celebrating a birthday! I'd also be sure to mention it to your dining team once you are onboard. 

    Disney Cruise Line offers an array of Onboard Gifts that can be pre-ordered to mark the special occasion. You can choose from special birthday decorations for your stateroom or select a decadent birthday cake to enjoy. Stateroom decorations are always a big hit for my sailing crew! 

    If your granddaughter is into all things princess, a fairytale makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique onboard might be just the thing to pixie-dust her big day. Reservations can be made online or via the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app when your onboard booking window opens prior to sailing. The Royal Court Royal Tea experience is another enchanting offering for little ones and an adult to have tea in the presence of princesses while being showered with special gifts. It's a birthday present fit for royalty. 

    Lorrie, I hope the upcoming birthday celebration voyage is one for the memory books! Please cruise back to planDisney if you have any further questions as you plan ahead. We'd love to help with anything. 

    Happy planning and happy celebrating!
