    I booked an excursion on my cruise that disembarks at 7:45 am. Will the oceaneer club be open? I have scoured the internet and the earliest opening time that I have seen is 8:30 am.

    Ahoy, Romana!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You've come to the right place to find the answer to your cruise question. If you are already booking Port Adventures, your cruise must be right around the corner. It won't be long now before your vacation dreams become a reality!

    Disney Cruise Line understands that sometimes parents like to venture ashore without their sailors so youth programming hours are adjusted to accommodate early excursions. You can ask about specific opening times once you are aboard or wait until you receive your Personal Navigator, the cruise newsletter, the night before your adventure. These earlier operation hours should allow you plenty of time to drop off your Mouseketeers in the Oceaneer Club or Oceaneer Lab before meeting with your tour group onboard. Breakfast will also begin earlier or you can pre-order room service to enjoy in your stateroom before you head out. Lunch is served to those who are checked in during mealtime (usually around 12:00 p.m., but check your cruise newsletter the night before for exact timing). 

    I'm so glad you cruised by with your question, Romana! Please don't hesitate to reach out again if you need further assistance. We are always happy to help.

    Have a magical day!
