Birthday cake
 
I want to order a birthday cake for my son on our cruise in August. Has anybody ever done this before? Anybody have tips, suggestions or pictures? Thanks in advance.

on the disneycruise.com web sight got the Planning Center Icon. Select the In_room Gifts and Shopping. You can click on the celebration packages and hit the filter results button.

Have done both the Celebration Cake and the Birthday Celebration Package on differnt occasions.

My DBF ordered one for me on our last cruise. The cake was good but with all the other desserts and offerings on board we each only ate one slice. I think there is the option to have it delivered to your MDR but we went to Palo for my birthday and I was not giving up my soufflé. My DBD knew this so opted to have it sent to our room.

This is for my son who is turning 12. What does the celebration cake look like?

We had the celebration pkg with cake for my son's 3rd birthday.

Thanks so much for the pictures. I wasn't sure what to do - the celebration cake or the Mickey cake. And I'm still torn on whether I should have the cake in the room or at dinner. Hmmmmmm.

You can order a regular cake to be delivered in the MDR. Someone at our table did that one cruise but was upset because it wasn't brought out until after everyone had already ordered and eaten their desert so not much was eaten. It was too big to put in the fridge in the room.

I had read somewhere that they give a small complimentary birthday cake in the MDR. I plan on doing that for my son's 10th birthday on the Fantasy. But of course if you want a fancy cake or have more in your party, I'd order a cake. It'll just be 4 of us so the complimentary cake should be perfect for us.

They don't serve comp. cake on board now, they serve a single serve chocolate mousse type dessert.

The celebration package that is listed on the website for cruises leaving out of Port Canaveral does not list the cake anymore.

Very sorry to hear that. Guess I'll need to look and order a cake now. Don't think my son will like the mousse. Thanks for the info!

Do they still offer the cake of the day via room service?

shburks 06-24-2013 07:43 PM
