This is just a quick tip today. No matter where you travel, but especially on cruises and at theme parks, make sure that you let them know when you are celebrating anything (birthday, anniversary, wedding, divorce, etc.).
On our last cruise, I let them know that it was my birthday. I was really surprised when I found this in my cabin:
This was a free spa treatment (up to $50) and, it also included a certificate for a free picture, which I used so I do not have a picture of it.
When we checked into our hotel, on Disneyland property, I was given a button (like this one) with my name written on it. Everywhere we went to Disneyland that day, I was greeted with a “Happy Birthday, Louise”. This was not only from the Disneyland personnel but from the other tourists as well. When a little 5 year old wished me Happy Birthday, it made my day. We also went to the Blue Bayou for lunch and I was surprised by this: (at no cost)
So, this is just a reminder that no matter where you travel, make sure that you let those around you know when you are celebrating something. You never know what surprises await you.
See Ya Makin Memories!
