    Hi, I want to book a Disney cruise, but my son turns 3 one day after our cruise ends. He is currently potty trained and I have a 4 yo daughter. What is the possibility my son would be allowed into the toddler club vs. Nursery?

    Ahoy there, Christina,

    Thanks for dropping anchor here at planDisney! I’m glad you brought up your question before boarding your Disney Cruise Line adventure.

    Your little buccaneer must be three years old to participate in Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Disney’s Oceaneer Lab. Children who turn three during the cruise may register for these clubs on or after their birthday. So, I encourage you to pre-register for the “it’s a small world” nursery! when your activity booking window opens since availability is on a first-come first-serve basis. There are plenty of activities offered for children in the nursery that cater to the various ages and stages of each child. 

    Christina, here's a tip for you! If you book an activity for yourself while your son is at the nursery, book his nursery time 30 minutes prior and 30 minutes after your event to allow for time for him to settle in and give you time to arrive and return from your event.

    Now, more good news for your toilet-trained tot, he will be able to use the swimming pools and the splash zones onboard! Depending on his height, he might be able to spin down one of the water slides, too. Be sure to check his height and the attraction requirements before you board to avoid disappointment.

    No matter where your little guy spends his time during your cruise, I know your family will enjoy your time aboard Disney Cruise Line. To get the excitement started while you are still on dry land, download the My Disney Cruise Adventures booklet!

    Thanks, again, for bringing your question to me, Christina. Please sail by any time with other questions you may have!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
