    Considering a 5 or 7 day Disney Cruise with my 8 & 10 year old daughters. I have watched the DVD and it looks like there is plenty to do for the 7 year old and younger set, or the 13 year old and over set, but what about kids in the 8 -12 range? Than

    Hi Lesa!

    This is about the time I wish I could post my pictures so you could see my kids enjoying the youth clubs at different ages.  If I remember correctly, my son was 5 when we started sailing with Disney Cruise Line.  My daughter was 8.  They are now 11 and 15 which means that between the two of them, they've enjoyed several of the different youth clubs.  Your children are the perfect age for a Disney cruise.  My kids never wanted to leave at night, and would beg us to let them stay until closing.  My husband would end up waiting until the clubs closed to get the kids and bring them back to our room. 

    Kids ages 3 to 10 go to Disney's Oceaneer Lab, and that is amazing!  The kids love many activities and so much to do there.  My kids baked cookies, made Flubber, and searched for Tinkerbell's stolen pixie dust.  They had a blast!  Kids ages 11 to 13 go to Edge, where they can surf the web, play video games and participate in really awesome group activities that are scheduled daily.

    Trust me, your kids will all have an incredible time and so will you.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.  Bon voyage Lesa!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
