    How do the children's clubs work? Do you need to sign up for specific times or just drop the children off when they are interested during the day or evening? Is there ever a limit to how many children are in the club? Thanks!

    Hey there, Maureen -

    Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question. Disney Cruise prides itself with awesome Youth Programs that every parent appreciates. I've had my kids go through all the Youth Clubs now, and I'm amazed at how everything just turns out special each and every cruise we take. It just never gets old!

    All kids participating in the Youth Clubs will need to be registered. You can get the registration process started while you're still at home via the My Online Check-In. Once you register them and complete paperwork, you just need to drop by the club once you are onboard.

    • For the littlest cruisers, they can spend a certain amount of time at the Nursery. All nursery hours need to be reserved and have an additional hourly cost.
    • For the Oceaneer Club and Lab, kids aged 3-12 years old can stay all day if they want to - there's no limit and no additional costs. Kids come and go between the hours of 9am til midnight. I usually have had my kids play there or join an activity, or we pick them up to spend time at the pools or do other activities. There are busy times, but Disney watches the child to counselor ratio to make sure there is enough coverage all the time.
    • The Edge and the Vibe will have options for self check-ins, so kids usually hang out there as they please.

    Check the Personal Navigator for Youth Club hours daily. Schedule of activities will usually be there too.

    I hope this help, Maureen. Happy planning!
