    My daughter will turn 11 while we’re on the cruise, can she enjoy the oceaneer clubs and the edge?

    Ahoy Gina!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  How exciting that your daughter will be celebrating her birthday with Captain Mickey!

    As your princess will be ten years old when you set sail, you can register her for the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab.  If your daughter would also like to experience Edge, you can speak with the Youth Counselors to see if space allows for her to spend time in this club during your cruise. 

    When we sailed last May, my son chose the Oceaneer Club initially, but ended up making friends who were spending time in Edge.  After talking with the Youth Counselors, he was able to switch.  I cannot guarantee this will be an option on your sailing, but it never hurts to ask!  I recommend you use your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to find open house times to ask the Youth Counselors and find all the events happening in the youth clubs during your high seas adventure!

    My own daughter has made some magical birthday memories sailing the high seas as well.  Your princess will truly feel like royalty as she celebrates her special day during your vacation!  Some memorable ways my daughter and I have celebrated her birthday onboard included a royal transformation at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, a tea party with the princesses during the Royal Court Royal Tea and special cakes ordered through Onboard Gifts and Amenities.  No matter how you celebrate, I am certain it will be a birthday she never forgets!

    We hope to "sea" you again as you continue to plan your epic vacation, Gina!  Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail.

    Bon voyage!  Angie
