    Hi, I will be cruising with my 5 and 8 year old. If they are too young for a shore excursion we want to do will the kids clubs be open on the ship? Is there an additional cost for kids clubs?

    Ahoy, Crystal!

    Thanks for cruising by with your question.

    I'm happy to hear you're planning to take advantage of all a Disney Cruise Line vacation has to offer, including the amazing Youth Clubs. My kids have enjoyed spending time in the clubs through the years - all the way from "it's a small world" nursery! up to Vibe, the teen club. Each club is specifically designed for a certain age group, with well-trained Youth Counselors that give the kids undivided attention!

    Your kiddos fall into the age category for the Oceaneer Club/Oceaneer Lab, which is provided free-of-charge during your sailing. Youth programming will be available during port days, so you are more than welcome to check them in while you and the adults in your sailing party enjoy a Port Adventure off the ship. Lunch is provided for the kids, so you won't need to worry about sending food with them during their stay in the club. You'll be able to relax and enjoy your time ashore, knowing your kids are safe, secure, and having a blast under the watchful eye of the awesome Youth Counselors.

    I encourage you to visit the Oceaneer Club/Lab on your first afternoon onboard, during Youth Activities Open House. It's such a fun space, and they plan some really great activities to keep the kids engaged and entertained.

    I hope this helps with your planning. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
