Celebrating Special Occasions
Celebrating Special Occasions
We firmly believe there’s always something to celebrate... even if it’s just the fact that you’re going on a cruise! And, of course, there are always birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays to remember. If you are celebrating a special occasion while you’re onboard, be sure to let your Disney reservation agent or travel agent know when you book your cruise, or at least three weeks before you sail.
Bon Voyage Celebrations—Why not throw a party before you depart for your cruise? Invite your friends and family and make ‘em jealous! Or if you happen to know someone going on a cruise, surprise them with a send-off party or a gift in their stateroom (see sidebar below). And don’t forget about a celebratory drink when you board! Note: Only passengers are allowed on board or in the terminal, so parties with non-cruisers must take place before your arrival at the cruise terminal.
Birthdays—Let Disney know about your celebration in advance, and you’ll be serenaded by your serving team (no more cakes at dinner, though). You may also get a birthday pin!
Honeymoons—The Disney Cruise Line is popular with honeymooning couples—be sure to let Disney know you're 'mooning! Though honeymoon packages aren't available, Disney is happy to include a honeymoon cruise in one of its Fairytale Weddings (see page 563). There are also romance stateroom gift packages (see below), and you can request Honeymoon buttons from Guest Services.
Anniversaries—We celebrated Dave’s parents’ 50th wedding anniversary aboard the Wonder in 2001—it was magical! Again, tell Disney about your celebration ahead of time and you may get a surprise.
Holidays—Disney does the holidays in grand style, particularly on Christmas and New Year’s Eve—look for Santa Goofy, a three-deck-tall tree, holiday feasts, a New Year’s Eve party, and a New Year’s Day tailgate party. Starting in 2014, Halloween has been celebrated on all four ships in September and October. Guests enjoy Halloween-themed activities such as costume parties, games, special entertainment, and even a Pumpkin Tree in the lobby! Costume guidelines: Disney asks that guests choose costumes that are not obstructive or offensive. You may only wear full-face masks when you are standing still at character photo locations. No toys or props that resemble guns, knives, or other related implements are permitted onboard the ships.
Magnets on a door
Tip: Decorate your stateroom and/or stateroom door in honor of your celebration! You can order basic stateroom decorations from Disney (see “Stateroom Gifts” below) and they’ll put them up before you arrive. Or bring your own decorations from home. Another fun idea is to buy (or make) magnets with which to decorate your metal stateroom door (see photo)—please note that only magnets are allowed on the doors (no tape or glue).
