    Hi! We are going on our first Disney Cruise this January to the Mexican Riviera. My kids are 8 and 10 and we would love to go on the Canopy Adventure in Cabo San Lucas. Can my 8 year old daughter handle the day? she is 53 inches tall so that should be ok.

    Hi, Kristin!

    About a month ago, my family and I sailed on the Disney Wonder to the Mexican Riviera, and as a surprise to my 11-year-old son, we booked the Cabo Canopy Adventure for just the two of us. He is an adventuresome kind of guy, and a big guy for his age at 5' 3." He was the youngest guest in our group, and I started to worry whether he could hang with all the grown ups. As it turned out, he did fine, but at times, the course was challenging to him -- physically and mentally.  The rock climbing was a bit more than we had anticipated. The guides were fantastic, and they were encouraging and helpful. Yet, I wondered if he wasn't able (or willing) to do some of the activities whether or not there was an alternative plan for him.

    My recommendation is to read the Port Adventure description thoroughly. It's a fantastic opportunity, and I'm very thankful that we had that experience together. However, I was certainly glad that my 7-year-old son was not there! You know your child best, and you'll make the best decision for your family. Yet, I wanted to make sure you were fully aware of the course before you booked.

    Have you thought about the Mexican Outback and the Camels?  Or the Cabo Dolphins?  Or a beach getaway?  Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
