    First time cruise for May 2017 and I know I can book the nursery 75 days before sail date but know would i know if there will be room left for my daughter to have a night out?

    Welcome aboard, Essence! How exciting that you're looking forward to your very first sailing with Disney Cruise Line! It sounds like you're already planning all the fun extras that you can begin booking once your online check-in opens at 75 days prior to sailing.

    When you log into your reservation online at that point, you'll be able to view "My Cruise Activities" where you can add extras for each day, including Port Adventures, Spa Treatments, Adult Exclusive Dining, and yes, the It's A Small World Nursery reservations. There you'll be able to view the remaining available time slots for nursery reservations each day for your little one under three years old. Children ages three and over (and potty trained) can attend the Oceaneer's Club and the Oceaneer's Lab. Those clubs require no additional cost and no reservations are necessary. Parents can bring their children to those clubs whenever they'd like, and the kids can stay and play for however long they'd like. Believe me, there are times when my kids beg to stay and play longer, as they're having too much fun! We love the Youth Clubs on the ships!

    But, it sounds like your daughter is a young cruiser who will be in the nursery. There is an additional hourly cost, and it's a great idea to make a few reservations before you set sail for her to enjoy the nursery, as some hours do sell out. But, please know that once onboard, you're welcome to stop by the nursery to ask about additional open hours if you'd like to add more play time for her there while you sneak away for some adult fun in the adults only areas of the ship.

    I hope those details help as you continue planning, Essence! Let us know if you have other questions before you set sail! We're happy to help!
