    I have just purchased a Disney Cruise for December 2022. I want to surprise my wife with it this Christmas. I saw somewhere on your Cruise website a link to produce an "Announcement" about the trip, but I can't find it now...

    Ahoy James!

    Welcome to planDisney. Aren’t you a sweet husband for wanting to surprise your wife with a Disney cruise! I always keep a Disney cruise on my Christmas wish list; it’s definitely a "one size fits all" kind of present! 

    I’ve combed all over the Disney Cruise Line website, but I don’t see anything like an announcement creator that you could use to notify her of this voyage. However, if you have the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app on your phone, it does have a countdown calendar that you could pull up and show her as a MAGICal present. Maybe that’s not the wow factor you were hoping for, so let’s come up with a few more ideas!

    Surprise her with a character call from Mickey, Goofy or Mickey and Minnie together! This call can be requested once you have logged into your Disney Cruise Line account and access your reservation. Scroll down to the “Get Ready to Cruise” section, and you can click on the "Request a Call" box. After selecting the character(s), you will provide the ship, sail date, destination, phone number, and when you would like to have them call. Wouldn’t that be a cool way to tell your wife about your plans?

    Currently, these character calls are available to residents of the United States, Canada (except Quebec), and the United Kingdom. Expect a confirmation email explaining what to do if you need to reschedule or if you happen to miss the call. I just set my character call for our sailing in December on the Disney Dream; can't wait to hear "Hiya pal!" from Mickey himself. 

    Additionally, there are some great YouTube videos showing how other Guests shared the good news with their families as well as posts on the Disney Parks Blog and Disney Rewards sharing suggested ways to surprise a loved one with this glorious news. 

    James, surprise us with more questions as you make your cruise plans. And let us know how she reacts to this amazing gift. It's going to be the best present ever! 

    Happy Sailing!
