    We are so excited about our upcoming 3 night cruise on the Dream, but are apprehensive about leaving our sons in two different nurseries/clubs. They will be 22mos and JUST TURNED 4. Is there any way to have them both cared for at the nursery?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel, Elizabeth!

    In just another month, you will be sailing along the Atlantic Ocean enjoying all that the Disney Dream has to offer!  I understand being apprehensive about leaving your boys in two different places, but I think you will find that they will both be happy as clams in their own spaces!

    Your toddler will love the inviting space at It's A Small World Nursery!  Not only will there be games to play, books to read and crafts to create, but many of the components of the room are interactive!  Around the facility, your little one will find horns that will honk, wheels that will spin and buttons that can be pressed!  But remember reservations are required for the nursery, and there is an hourly charge with a two-hour minimum.  Even though this area is very engaging for the younger set, your four year old will be ready for a bit more.  

    The Oceaneer's Club and Lab is located on Deck 5 just down from It's A Small World Nursery.  This space is absolutely amazing, and I think you will have a hard time getting your son to leave!  Whether he is playing in Andy's Room with the life-sized Mr. Potato head or climbing around at Monster's Academy, there are lots of opportunities for fun in this area.  Unlike the nursery, this youth activity space and all the fun-filled activities is included in your cruise fare. 

    When you embark on your cruise, head up to Deck 5 and have a look at these incredible spaces and talk with the childcare providers about your concerns.  I am sure they will put your worries at ease.

    Please let me know if I can help in any other way!
