    Hi! My family will be embarking on our first Disney Cruise through the Mediterranean in August. Our daughter will be 3 by then and we were wondering if we could book her into childcare while the ship is in port so we could do Port Adventures for Adults?

    Ahoy, Robyn!

    Wow! The Disney Magic in the Mediterranean sounds amazing and an incredible journey for your first Disney Cruise vacation. You will love waking up in a new and beautiful European port of call each day and being able to unpack only once! When you get back to the ship after your onshore explorations, you'll be able to enjoy delicious cuisine, tons of activities and the best entertainment on the high seas. Your princess will see her favorite Disney Pals and love all the activities scheduled in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab.

    The Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab are opened during port hours for Mouseketeers who want to enjoy the planned programming or exploring the themed areas like Pixie Hollow and the Mickey Mouse Club. As long as your sailor is potty-trained, she is welcome to stay onboard while you venture ashore to experience some of the adult-only Port Adventure offerings. No reservations are required as long as she is registered for the programming, so you'll just bring her to the Oceaneer Club or Lab when you are ready to disembark. You'll be happy to know that hours are adjusted to correspond with all ashore times. Lunch is served for those sailors checked in during mealtime, but you'll want to feed your daughter breakfast before arriving to check her in. She'll have an absolute blast while you enjoy your time ashore! 

    Robyn, thank you for sailing by with your cruise question. Since you are embarking on your first adventure with Disney Cruise Line, please keep us posted if you need further help with your plans.

    Have a magical day!
