Place to enter a celebration?

Hi, all! I just made a reservation through a TA and didn't mention we have two celebrations while on board. Is there a place to add these in the online check in process or in 'My Reservations'? I can always contact my TA later, but didn't know if I could do this myself. Thanks in advance, you're the best!

Not sure why it would be necessary to mention your celebrations on your reservation. We celebrated my birthday on a cruise last year, and DH told the waiters at dinner and they gave me a birthday button and a cake. i don't know that DCL does anything more than that (unless you order something and pay $$$ for it.) BTW, the cake didn't taste all that great, (and a lot of people here on the DIS share that opinion) but it was topped with a white chocolate scroll with a picture of the Wonder in darker chocolate on it.

When you first get on board, your family will be "announced." Similar to guests being announced at a royal ball? Anyway, when a CM asks for your name, you could hand them a card to tell them what to announce -- "the XXX family, celebrating XXX and XXX."

I had my DH's birthday noted on our reservation and our stateroom host made a birthday cake out of towels.

AFAIK, the question about whether you are celebrating anything is only on the reservation page when you make the your initial reservation.

You (or the TA, maybe) could call DCL and have it noted on your reservation now.

You can use "Contact us" on disneycruise.com. You will get an email back in couple of days confirming that celebrations have been noted on your reservation.

You can add it yourself by logging into your reservation on the DCL site:

Log in to My Reservations
Click "Reservation Summary"
Click "Modify"
Click "Special Requests"

You can add celebrations, bedrail requests, and certain dietary requests here.
