    We are going on the Halloween Cruise from San Diego in Oct . We want to go horseback riding. But, I have a 5 yr old son who cannot go. Questions are 1.) Is there child care for the 5 yr old, or can my 13 and 11 yr olds go on their own while we wait?

    Ahoy, Anna!

    I love that you are taking advantage of having the Disney Wonder in your home state of California this October! Your family is going to experience a BOO-tiful sailing on your Halloween on the High Seas cruise. Festive activities and events will be sprinkled in to make it a very magical vacation for your entire crew! You'll definitely want to bring costumes along so you can take photos with your favorite Disney Friends wearing their adorable Halloween attire. It's always fun to see the Characters in unique outfits! 

    I'm glad you asked this question because your sailor will need to stay onboard and enjoy the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab while you experience the Horseback Riding Port Adventure with your older two. (An adult must accompany Guests under the age of 18 unless it's a "teen only" excursion.) Secured programming will be available, and your son will have an absolute blast playing in Andy's Room, exploring MARVEL's Super Hero Academy and engaging in games and crafts. If he's checked in during lunch, he will be able to eat his meal there. The youth clubs do adjust hours according to port arrival times so you should have plenty of time to drop him off before you'll need to meet for your Port Adventure.

    Anna, horseback riding is on my cruise Port Adventure bucket list. I hope your crew enjoys the picturesque scenery on your tranquil trail ride. It looks like the perfect way to see the Gold Coast.

    If you have any additional questions, please let us know.
