    Is it possible to arrange a child baptism in a Disney Cruise? We have a reservation for August 10th, 2023 on the Disney Magic and we are planing my 3 year old niece to be baptized around the same time.

    Ahoy there, Nora! Thanks for cruising on over to planDisney with your question. Welcome!
    I’m so excited for you to experience everything a Disney Cruise Line vacation has to offer. From incredible dining rooms, beautiful ports of call, and family-friendly entertainment, there’s magic for Guests of all ages on board. I have no doubt that you’ll come home with memories to last a lifetime. 

    It looks like you’re hoping to add a celebration to your cruise. Unfortunately, baptisms are not performed aboard the ships; however, let’s see how we can honor your niece’s special day. I recommend calling Disney Cruise Line and having your special occasion noted on your reservation. When we took my brother on a cruise before he entered the Navy, I added his entrance into the military to our reservation. One evening our dining room servers surprised him with a small cake and lots of congratulations. While magical moments are never guaranteed, you never know when a little extra pixie dust might come your way! 

    Since you’re celebrating a special occasion, I think marking the event with a photo is a wonderful idea. Photographers are set up in the atrium each night to capture your family's smiles. You can purchase pictures individually or as part of a package. I really like the Unlimited Digital Photo Package because all the images are included, from character photos to formal portraits and even candid goofy poses. After a picture in her fancy dress, you can head to the gift shop and let her pick out a keepsake souvenir. 

    Nora, I know your cruise will be both memorable and magical because you’re spending it with your loved ones. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with before you board the Disney Magic

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
