Mother's Day

Just realized my Disney Cruise will be over Mother's Day. Pretty cool! Has anyone been on one over this day? Do they do anything special?

We did Father's Day on the Fantasy. It was a sea day. All they did was bring the Dads another dessert at dinner - it was an apple dessert. They did have a beautiful sheet cake that was decorated, but they never cut it

I imagine Mother's Day might be similar.

Yep., Mother's Day was similar. They had a beautiful sheet cake, but it was never cut. I don't even remember getting an extra dessert. Our Mother's Day was a CC day, so it was still a great day!

In 2011, I was at Disneyland for mother's day. I got a carnation.

In 2012, I was at Epcot. I got a carnation.

This year I will be on DCL going through the Panama Canal. Not sure I'll even see the carnation!

It was a special dessert prepared by the chef, not ordered by anyone, not on the menu & it was just brought special to the fathers at the table. You are right, not extra, but it was a little something different.

Our first cruise started the day before Mothers day. I don't remember anything special happening onboard. But, then I wasn't really looking for it. Mothers day we were at Castaway Cay.

We left on Saturday, so it was the day after (a sea day). It was a nice gesture.

i'm wondering if being out to see on the day has something to do with it- maybe the chefs have more prep time???

on our cruises Mothers Day was the day we left...

We've had embarcation day on Mothers Day a few years ago and Fathers Day in 2012. I think we got a rose at dinner for Mothers Day and there were photos in the MDRs that night that had a special 'mothers day' printing on it. There was nothing special on our 5 night Magic for Fathers Day.

In 1999 on Magic they gave the mothers roses and made a little announcement at dinner wishing the mothers Happy Mother's Day.

This year I will be disembarking on MD
