    Disney Dream - May 2018. My son, who's 8, is interested in the kids club but does not enjoy participating in organized crafts, games etc? Are video games available throughout the day or does he have to participate in the organized activities?

    Hi there, Christine!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you stopped by with your question about your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation aboard the Disney Dream!  Disney Cruise vacations are full of magic and you will make so many wonderful memories onboard!  I am so excited for you!

    The Youth Clubs onboard are great fun for young Mouseketeers to enjoy spending time at; with such a variety of things to do in there – both scheduled activities and free play, there is something for everyone!  The Daily Navigator will list the scheduled events in the Youth Clubs, but BY NO MEANS is that the only thing to do in the clubs during those times!  Your son will definitely be able to have free play with the other activities!  He is welcome to participate in the scheduled activities or continue doing what he prefers to do!  He may be surprised - they usually have some pretty exciting activities going on, and he may find he wants to participate!  But, certainly optional for all!

    Also look for the Open House hours on the schedule in the other Youth Clubs.  During those hours, anyone can visit and enjoy the activities in the other clubs onboard!  My young boys like visiting the older kids' clubs to see what they have to look forward to as they get older or having us join them in the Oceaneer Club to show us their favorite activities and games!

    I am sure he will also enjoy taking a ride on the oh-so-fun AquaDuck!  Be sure to check out Shutters to see just how much fun you have on the watercoaster when they snap your picture mid-ride!

    Have such a fun adventure onboard and say hi to Captain Mickey for me!

    Happy Sailing!
