    Hi we will be traveling may 20-24, 2019 and my sons birthday is on the 24th. Can we preorder a cake or something to celebrate his birthday on board? Thank you

    Welcome aboard, Jackie!

    It's almost time to set sail with Disney Cruise Line to celebrate your son's birthday! I've been fortunate enough to celebrate two of my birthdays at sea with Disney, and they've been some of the best 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. Your dining servers will talk with you about that the first night to choose a night to celebrate and they'll present him with a special dessert. You can also stop by Guest Services to pick up a birthday button. Whenever a guest is wearing one onboard, the Cast Members, Disney characters, and even other guests seem to go out of their way to wish them a happy birthday! That certainly adds to the magic!

    Disney offers all sorts of other ways to really pump up the celebrations onboard, so I'd also encourage you to check out the Gifts and Amenities page of Disney Cruise Line's website. There you can view all sorts of celebration packages, including ordering a specialty cake, birthday room decorations and more! On one of my recent birthday cruises, we were surprised with floor to ceiling birthday decor in our stateroom! My friends had surprised me by pre-ordering this so that my family and I would be able to enjoy it as we first opened our stateroom door! Your son would love this extra special touch too!

    Have so much fun planning, Jackie!
