    My children ages 1, 2, 6, 7 and My spouse and I will cruise The Magic on the Mediterranean Sept 2017. Can I leave my two 1 & 2yr old in the nursery on board while I'm on an excursion with my other family members? For how long?

    Ahoy, Bradley!

    What a crew you have cruising the Mediterranean this September! I know a boatload of magical memories will be made on your vacation with Captain Mickey at the end of the summer. 

    I'm sure you can't wait to venture ashore to experience the amazing ports of call when the Disney Magic docks in the European ports of call on your sailing. If you decide to leave your littlest sailors onboard while you venture ashore, "it's a small world" nursery! will be available. I reached out to Disney Cruise Line to check on current polices and was told that there are not any restrictions on time limits. You will need to communicate with the counselors that you are disembarking while your Mouseketeers are checked in. The nursery will open early if tours are scheduled before normal operating hours. 

    Nursery hours are first-come, first-served so you'll want to plan accordingly because advance reservations are strongly suggested.  For 7-night cruises, you can book up to 18 hours in advance and can add more hours once onboard if available. I suggest stopping by the first afternoon with your little ones so you can all check out the space together. Open House hours are offered the first afternoon, and you'll be able to speak to the counselors about any questions you may about the nursery. 

    Bradley, it's going to be an exciting few months as you countdown to your European sailing with Disney! Please feel free to visit us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any additional questions about your vacation!
