    I will be sailing out in April with a BUNCH of family It's a surprise cruise for my niece's birthday. My sister and I want to know if you think that we could get a Disney princess to surprise her at the room for a sleep over we were going to plan

    Ahoy Shannon –

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you so much for your fun question! We absolutely adore birthday surprises and what a nice birthday your niece will have on her Disney cruise! I like the idea of a slumber party and even better having a slumber party at sea. You can definitely get in the mood by visiting Gifts and Amenities to order birthday décor for your stateroom as well as a cake if you would like. Make sure that you have noted a birthday celebration in your reservation so that Disney Cruise Line is aware.  Also, visit Guest Services on Deck 3 Midship to get your niece her special birthday button so that cast members and other pirate guests can share in her fun.

    I will admit that I have never heard of a Princess visiting a stateroom for a birthday.  I have seen them in their Meet and Greet locations and at their special Princess Gathering, so be sure that you sign up for a ticket for the gathering on embarkation day. I know that some Princesses visit the Oceaneer Club and the Nursery during the day so they are around quite a bit, but given their many greetings during the day, I would say that it is unlikely that a Princess will be able to visit during the slumber party. Perhaps you could arrange a “Magical Moment” by surprising your niece with her Princess at a time when they are out and about, perhaps before one of the gatherings? I advise that you check with Guest Services on embarkation day and see if that is possible. If not, then definitely have her wear her button when she goes to the Princess Gathering for some extra time and recognition with them. Shannon, happy planning to you and please come to see us again soon!
