    For Disney cruises, on a port day when the ship docks at 7:30am and all excursion begin before 8:30am, does small world nursery open earlier?

    Ahoy there, Amlivet! Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for sailing our way with your question.

    You can begin to make reservations for the "it's a small world" nursery! when your booking window opens. Based on the arrival date you provided, reservations would be available to book now. If you do not see an earlier time slot for the day you are interested in reserving, please speak with the Crew Members at the nursery shortly after boarding the ship to ask about the operating hours and reservation availability. 

    Disney Cruise Line understands that adults want to take advantage of nursery services for Port Adventures so I am hopeful that you'll find the opening hour to suit your needs. The Crew Members hope to make your travel with little ones as magical as possible. If you need to request a portable crib, diaper disposal unit, or bottle warmer for your stateroom, please speak to the Crew Members at Guest Services once you are onboard. 

    I recommend that you keep on the lookout for Open Houses for the youth spaces listed in the daily activity schedule. This schedule will be available to view once you are onboard the ship within the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. Open Houses are an excellent time for families to play together (no matter the age of the children... and adults too!) in the interactive youth spaces onboard. Your little one can feel like a big kid and get a peek into all the fun offered at Disney's Oceaneer Club.

    I hope this information helps point your compass toward an amazing Disney Cruise. Please visit us again if you have more questions. My pals and I are happy to help!

    Adventure is out there,
