    My son will be 8 on 3/23/16, our cruise on the Dream is 4/11/16, can we still have birthday accommodations? I also saw a Dream ship figurine online that I would love to get for him, can I purchase this on the ship for the same price? ($32.95)

    Welcome Back, Janice!

    One of the best part of a Disney Cruise is that you can always be celebrating, and it doesn't cost you anything! If you head to the Guest Services desk, they can give you a "Happy Birthday" button for your son. If you note the celebration on your reservation, you might be surprised at dinner by your servers with a birthday cupcake or special dessert, as well as a choral collaboration of "Happy Birthday" by your servers and some of the nearby servers as well.

    If you would like your stateroom to be decorated upon arrival, you can order the Birthday Celebration Package in the Gifts and Amenities section on the Disney Cruise Line website. For around $52, you will get a birthday banner in the room, a Disney Cruise Line bed runner, a birthday card, and a large Happy Birthday magnet on your door. This will all be in your stateroom when you get there on your embarkation day.

    You can also order a celebration cake, if you wish. These are available to be ordered in the Gifts and Amenities section as well. As far as the Dream ship figurine, I have seen it available on the Disney Dream, but if you see something you love, it might be a better idea to order it ahead of time to be sure that you actually can get it.

    I hope this helps with your cruise planning, and you are able to make your son's eighth birthday completely DREAMy!

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.
