    What child care is available nursery care

    Hi there, Bobbie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you stopped by with your question.  Disney Cruise Line vacations are perfect for all ages, especially since they have such wonderful amenities for children!  

    The littlest cruisers (those UNDER three years old) can attend the “it’s a small world!” nursery which is an area where the littles can play, create – even take an afternoon nap – while the adults enjoy the amenities geared toward adults on the ship or on shore during a port of call excursion.  Reservations need to be made in advance or you can check availability once onboard.  There is an additional fee for nursery hours but it's definitely worth it to visit the spa, have an adult dinner or lounge by the pool sans kiddo!

    Disney Cruise Line makes it super convenient to travel with little ones.  You can request a pack and play and a diaper pail for your stateroom as well as a highchair for your table at dinner. Your server in the main dining room can ensure that your little one has pureed food or finger foods at dinner service as well. 

    I can assure you that you cannot go wrong with the excellent care your little one will receive at the nursery.  My boys spent many hours there as little ones and I always felt comfortable leaving them there and your onboard wave phone can be used to reach you if any issues arise with your little one, although those counselors are fully equipped to handle the littlest cruisers!

    I wish you ALL a wonderful and magical adventure at sea!

    Happy Sailing!
