    Hi Moms. We are going on the January 31st Magic sailing to celebrate my husband's birthday. How do I make arrangements for some special recognition magic for him? This is the first cruise I booked myself and usually our travel agent handles this.

    Welcome aboard, Anne! Only a few days from now, you'll be setting sail on the newly re-imagined Disney Magic. What a great way to celebrate your husband's birthday! I celebrated my birthday onboard the Wonder a few years back and it was one of the best ones yet!

    If you haven't already, be sure to let Disney Cruise Line know that you'll be celebrating your husband's birthday. If there is a note on your reservation about that, your dining servers will sing to him at dinner one night and present him with a special dessert. Also, stop by Guest Services and pick up a birthday button. If your husband wears it around, Cast Members and Disney characters will certainly go out of their way to wish him a happy birthday.

    If you'd like to do even more, take a look at the Celebrations packages available for pre-purchase on the Gifts and Amenities page of Disney Cruise Line's website. You can order a cake to be delivered to your stateroom or presented at dinner, or even have decorations waiting in your stateroom. Disney offers quite a few ways to make celebrating a birthday at sea even more magical, so check those out! 

    Finally, if you haven't already, do consider booking a dinner at Palo, the Adult Exclusive restaurant onboard the Magic. Reservations fill up quickly, so don't wait. Though it carries an additional cost of $25 per person, I promise it's worth every penny to enjoy the elegant atmosphere and top notch menu in Palo. My husband and I never miss the opportunity to dine there, and a birthday celebration is a great reason to try it out!

    Have a wonderful cruise, Anne! Enjoy every moment!
