    We have a family cruise scheduled for October 2012 on the new Fantasy. How soon can we reserve babysitting services?

    Hi Laura!

    The Disney Fantasy is receiving its final dusting of pixie dust and will be ready for sea-faring Guests very soon!  October will be here before you know it, and it will be your turn to sail into the sunset!

    Having the option for safe, fun, and affordable childcare on Disney Cruise Line is one of many aspects that set it apart from other cruise lines.  Making reservations for It's A Small World Nursery can be done 75 days ahead of time for new cruisers.  If you are a returning cruiser and a Castaway Club member you do have the ability to book a little earlier.  Silver members can book 90 days prior to sailing, Gold is a 105 days, and Platinum is 120 days ahead of time.  When your time comes, log-in to your reservation at and click Planning Center.  You will be able to reserve times under "My Cruise Activities."  When my son used the nursery, we were able to book 10 hours online and then added more hours when we boarded.  We loved being able to drop him off while we enjoyed some of the adult-only activities onboard. 

    I hope you will let me know if  you have any other pre-cruise questions before your October departure!  I know you are going to have the most magical time!

    Have a great day!
