    We're planing Disney cruise with friends, (including their kids age 6 and 8). My older daughter's birthday falls during the trip and I want to celebrate her day while ensuring the other kids feel special too. Any tips to balance both?

    Hi Nafeesa, 

    Welcome back to planDisney and thank you for asking us another question, my fellow Canadian! 

    If you’re looking to make your daughter’s birthday feel even more special, you truly can’t go wrong with a Disney Cruise Line birthday trip. There are lots of activities that you can plan to include everyone in the fun, and you’ll have lots of choices depending on your party’s tastes and interests. The first idea that came to mind was a fun Port Adventure, especially if your daughter’s birthday falls on a port day. I’m not sure what type of sailing you’ll be on, but you can filter all of the activities by itinerary (Caribbean, Bahamas, Mediterranean, etc.) and then filter even more based on the types of experiences you’re looking for, activity levels and port of call. 

    If you’d rather celebrate onboard your spectacular Disney Cruise Line ship, you can also book the Royal Court Royal Tea for all of the little princes and princesses in your party. It’s an unforgettable experience for the little Disney Princess lovers in your group and would definitely make all of the kiddos in your party feel special. 

    Of course, if you want the birthday girl herself to feel special, don’t forget that you can deliver some pretty awesome birthday treats as Onboard Gifts or even book a princess makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

    As always, please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. If you have some more information about what your eldest daughter likes/doesn’t like and her age, we’d be more than happy to help you with some more ideas for creating her perfect Disney Day at sea!

    Have a Magical Day,
