    interested in planning a cruise for my mom's 90th birthday (March 2024) for a large family group.

    Ahoy there, Donna,

    Welcome aboard planDisney! First things first, I’m wishing your Mom so many special birthday wishes! I’m sure she is going to be so thrilled to celebrate this milestone birthday with a Disney Cruise Line vacation.  You and your family will be able to surround your Mom with magical moments during your vacation celebration, so let’s see what we can dream up! 

    Disney Cruise Line vacations are a wonderful way for multi-generational families to travel together. Of course, a Disney cruise offers multiple entertainment and activity choices with everything from Broadway-style shows to rousing games of trivia. There is something for everyone!

    If your family is like mine, you will enjoy that Disney Cruises delicious Rotational Dining means that there are fewer decisions to make regarding where and when to eat and yet you still have choices. To make your Mom feel extra special, consider booking one of the amazing Adult Dining options that are sure to make her feel extra special. 

    One of the benefits of a Disney cruise is that the ships are relatively easy for older adults to navigate. You may want to consider a cruise itinerary aboard the Disney Magic, which is one of the smaller ships, which makes getting from place to place on the ship even easier. Also, many of the Disney Magic itineraries include stops at Disney Castaway Cay or the new Lighthouse Point, which are wonderful places for families to spend time together. Another added benefit of these private island ports is that you never leave the Disney “bubble” and you know that your family will be well cared for the entire time. I also appreciate the flexibility of being able to return to the ship at any time if anyone needs to take a break during the day. 

    Donna, I hope this information is helpful to you as you plan this special celebration. Please sail back by if you have other questions or if you would like more tips to make the most of your time on board. We are here to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
