    I am completely overwhelmed sorting through the excursions for my 7 and 9 yo daughter & son. We're hitting Key West, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. They want to zipline, but I don't think they are old enough for the one I found. Any recommendations? Thank

    Welcome aboard, Cherise!

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel. Sounds like your kids are just like mine... brave, active and raring to go on a new adventure every day. I'm sure they keep you busy and you have the big task of keeping up with them - and their ultra high energy. Makes every day lots of fun, right? When my kids were 7 & 9, they too, wanted to do all the big kid stuff. As you know, the excursions have very strict age restrictions enforced by Disney Cruise Line. Unfortunately, they won't be able to participate in the zip line activity included in the Adventure Park excursion at Cozumel. Kids have to be at least 10 years old to sign up for this particular port adventure. I know that the kids will be disappointed - mine went through this phase, but we all really enjoyed doing the sight seeing tours too. Most are very educational, and the adventure guides who accompany you on the tours are very knowledgeable and fun.

    There are a couple other active choices to check out for Port Adventures. When you click on this Port Adventure link, you can customize your search. Click on the ports you are visiting and choose 4-7 years old or Family Adventures. That will allow your search to identify excursions that will fit their age group together. if they are comfortable in the water, the Xel-Ha Park & River Tubing adventure might be something you can check out. Or maybe an adventure with Stingrays or Dolphins? Or an awesome adventure in a Secret River? And kids seem to be mesmerized by ruins and the stories (or legends) that accompany them.

    I hope this helps, Cherise. In a couple more years, both of them will be able to do more of the active/moderate excursions and they'll have something to look forward to. No matter which excursion you choose, I'm sure you'll all still have a blast! ~ Dolly
