    My son will turn 10 while on our Disney cruise in January. Will the crew help us celebrate?

    Welcome aboard, Karen! Celebrating a birthday at sea with Disney Cruise Line is the absolute best way to celebrate! I've enjoyed two of my own birthdays while sailing with Disney and they've been the best ones yet! If you haven't already, be sure to add a note to your reservation letting them know that you'll be celebrating his birthday onboard. This information is given to your dining servers who will make your son feel very special that night. They'll sing Happy Birthday to him at dinner and present him with a special dessert! 

    When you arrive onboard, be sure to swing by Guest Services to pick up a birthday button for him to wear too! Any Cast Members and Disney characters that see him wearing that will go out of their way to wish him a happy birthday!

    Now, if you'd like to make the day even more special, there are additional birthday packages available for pre-purchase on the Gifts and Amenities section of Disney Cruise Line's website. Earlier this year, my husband and I were heading out on the Disney Dream for my birthday. My friends pre-ordered the birthday stateroom decorations as a surprise for me. When we opened our stateroom door that first day, we were greeted with a brightly decorated birthday-themed stateroom! What a wonderful surprise and a magical way to start our trip! I think your son might really enjoy that as well. There are even Star Wars stateroom decorations if he's a Star Wars fan! I know my son would adore those for his birthday! Additionally, there are specialty cakes available for pre-purchase that can then be delivered to your stateroom on a certain day or presented to him at dinner one night.

    I hope those details help as you get ready to hit the high seas for this big double-digits celebration for your son, Karen! Have a wonderful trip!
