    Hi my daughter will be 5 yr old we sail and she has Autism, sensory struggles and will likely not be toilet trained. What will she be able to do I know no oceanears club as won't work for her, no swimming which she loves.

    Hello Sian! Welcome back to planDisney. Thank you so much for cruising to us with your question. 

    I'd love to help you as you plan to set sail aboard the Disney Wonder next year with your daughter! It sounds as if you are aware that children must be toilet trained to check in for youth activities in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab. I'm happy to share that both the Club and the Lab offer Open House times in which the entire family can experience and play in these interactive spaces together.

    If your daughter enjoys water play, I recommend splashing around in the AquaLab, a water playground that the whole family can enjoy. In addition to those activities, you will find there to be several offerings that will appeal to guests of all ages. My crew enjoys dance parties with Disney Characters, dazzling deck parties, enchanting live shows, movies by the pool (always with ice cream!), and more. 

    Your entire activity schedule will be available to view once you step onboard via the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. In the meantime, I recommend that you review the available Services for Guests with Disabilities, to determine if you would like to make any special requests for your sailing. The Information for Guests with an Autism Spectrum Disorder may also be helpful as you plan for your voyage. 

    I wish you a magical sailing with a side of extra happy memories! Please return to planDisney again if we can be of further assistance. It's a pleasure to help.
