    Can children stay on board at the kids club during excursions? If so, do the club's open early on this days?

    Hi there, Sherri!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you sailed by with your question about your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation!  I know that you are eagerly anticipating all the fun that awaits you onboard and let me tell you…. you have every reason to!  Get ready for non-stop fun and activities, exceptional entertainment and the best chocolate chip cookies because all that awaits you onboard!  Oh, I am just so excited for you to experience it all!

    The onboard Youth Clubs are one of my favorite things about cruising with Captain Mickey and I think my two boys would agree!  In fact, I know they would as they consistently respond that the Youth Clubs are their favorite thing about the “Mickey Boat” when asked!  We often have to bribe them (those chocolate chip cookies come in handy for this) to even leave because they are having so much fun and they are simply afraid of missing out on something!  On port days, children can be checked into secured programming in the Oceaneer Club and Lab while the grown-ups enjoy a fun excursion!  While opening hours vary from itinerary to itinerary, they will open early enough to check the kiddos in before you will need to meet at your designated location onboard for your planned Port Adventure.  They also serve lunch in the Youth Clubs daily, so if you are going to be gone during lunchtime you can be assured your littles will have food available for them!  The Youth Counselors do such a great job of keeping them busy and entertained your littles won’t even know you’ve left the ship!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable adventure at sea!  Say hi to Captain Mickey for me!

    Happy Sailing!
