    Hello, we are in the beginning stages of planning a 5 night west caribbean cruise in Jan 2016. we have a large group of people (20+) with several young children 18mo- 10 years. Is there enough on board the Magic to keep our active LOs happy?

    Ahoy, Kelli - 

    It makes a world of a difference to parents knowing that their kids are engaged and entertained during a trip. To me, it equates to Mom, Dad, Grandparents, Uncles & Aunts having a great time on their vacation too!

    When you go on a Disney Cruise -- adults can take full advantage of their vacation by pairing family time with maximizing the use of the awesome Youth Clubs. For your 18 month old to 3 year old cruisers, they'll find a fun and comfortable themed space at It's a Small World Nursery. I can still remember my 2-year old niece wanting to play longer, since she was still "shopping" as she was slowly pushing a toy shopping cart with a new friend. There are different activities planned each day, and even Disney Characters make their visits to play with the kids or join them for a story. 

    For your bigger kids who are 3-12 years old, their hot spot will be the Oceaneer Club and Lab. My kids practically grew up there - and it just never got old through the years. They would still prefer to stay there til midnight every night! The activities change throughout the day. My kids still remember making goo, and even baking bread. They enjoyed all the fun parties and games with the characters - and having meals with their friends. Walking around the ship was very memorable for them too since they got to see the sports deck and explore the ship. Your lucky little ones will have an awesome time at the pools too! There's also fun to be made at the lounges throughout the day as well as characters meet & greets.

    Get ready for fun!
