    Are there special treats/activities for a birthday child? Ours will turn 4 on embarkation day.

    Hi Christine!

    Thank you for stopping by with your question about your VERY special Disney Cruise Line vacation!  Anytime someone turns four it’s a reason to celebrate, but going on a Disney Cruise ON your fourth birthday…well, that’s for the memory books!  What a special day and way to celebrate your little one!

    First off, make sure that your Disney Cruise Line reservation is noted that you will be celebrating a birthday onboard.  You can do this on your My Reservations under “Special Requests”.  This will alert the Cast Members onboard that there is a special celebration during your time at sea so they can help you celebrate onboard.  Usually they will sing at dinner and bring out a special birthday dessert making it fun and exciting for all to share in the celebration!  Also, once you embark, stop by Guest Services to pick up a “Happy Birthday” button for your little one to wear so everyone onboard knows there is a celebration happening!

    For some extra in stateroom fun, check out the In-Room Gifts available; there are some wonderful options that you can pre-order to have in your stateroom for the birthday boy or girl making it even more memorable for them!  Or, perhaps make a reservation at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to help them celebrate during their time onboard!  Reservations can be made through My Cruise Activities once your onboard booking window opens (ranges from 120 days prior to sailing for Platinum and Concierge Guests to 75 days prior for first time Guests).

    I know this will be a birthday your little one won't forget and I am so excited for all the magical memories that will be made on this vacation!

    Happy Sailing!
