    Our Daughter won't be old enough to go on some port adventures for our cruise in May. Can she stay onboard at the Oceaneer's club while we're on shore? We've only been on one other cruise and she wasn't with us. Thanks

    Welcome to the Moms Panel site, Michelle - 

    So nice of you to drop in and send a question.  That's one of the great things about being on the Disney Cruise… kids and parents can all enjoy themselves, no matter what activity they choose.  You are more than welcome to have your daughter stay onboard, while you and your husband enjoy a port adventure.  The Oceaneer Club will have lots of planned activities for kids the whole day.  During our first cruise, I was actually hesitant to leave my kids on board while my husband and I went on a Port Adventure.  But, we realized that they wouldn't enjoy the activity as much as we would.  So, we did the plunge and left them all day!   We came back later that afternoon, and our kids didn't even want to leave the club with us.  They just wanted to hang out there with their new friends!

    The cast members and youth counselors really do a wonderful job of keeping the kids occupied.  They even feed them meals & snacks throughout the day, and take pictures during character visits or activities.  It's amazing to hear the stories that the kids share about their day -- I'm sure you'll see the delight in their faces as they share their days' adventure with you at dinner time.

    Have an awesome adventure at the ports during the day, and enjoy the magic on the ship when you're back onboard!

    I hope this helps.  Do let me know if you need any other planning help.  :-)
