    We are sailing on January 28, 2017 on the Fantasy for a 7 day cruise. My son's 13th birthday is the day we are at Castaway Cay. I would like to order a special birthday package. What is available and how would I order it? Thanks,

    Welcome aboard, Linzett! Sailing with Disney Cruise Line is always magical, but celebrating a birthday at sea is even more fun! I have been fortunate enough to celebrate two of my birthdays onboard the Disney ships, and they were the best ones yet!

    If you haven't already, be sure to add a note to your cruise reservation letting them know that you'll be celebrating your son's birthday onboard. The agents at Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 can do that for you. That information is passed on to your dining service team who will plan a song and special dessert for your son that night at dinner. You can also stop by the Guest Services desk to get a birthday button for him to wear. I know, he's 13, and he may not be "into" wearing a birthday button, but I promise that the Cast Members and characters around the ship really go out of their way to make birthday guests feel special, so encourage him to live it up and proudly wear that button!

    If you'd like to make his birthday even more special, I have a few ideas for you. First of all, you can pre-order birthday decorations to be put up in your stateroom so that when you open the door to the room that first day onboard, your son will be surprised with decorations from floor to ceiling. My friends surprised me by ordering those decorations for me when I sailed with my family earlier this year. When we opened the door to that colorful decor, it really made the beginning of the trip so much more magical! 

    Secondly, Disney Cruise Line offers specialty cakes as a pre-order item as well. You can choose between different options, and can choose if you'd like the cake delivered to your stateroom or served at dinner. Check out the Gifts and Amenities page of the website for pricing and ordering details for the stateroom decorations and the specialty cakes.

    Happiest of birthdays to your new teen, Linzett! Have a great cruise!
