    Hello! My husband and I are looking into booking a Disney cruise. We are hesitant because we have little kids - they will be 5, 4, 2, and 1 when we want to go. What activities are available for kids this young? Would it be worth it to go at these ages?

    Ahoy, Claiborne!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's so exciting that you're thinking about planning a Disney Cruise for you and your pirate crew! I brought my little buccaneer on his first cruise when he was six months old and I'll never forget the first time he met Mickey and Minnie! They peeked into my son's stroller while we were walking on deck and my son's face lit up seeing their faces looking back at him! I'm so thankful for that memory and the pictures that go along with it.

    I can honestly say your four kiddos will have such a fantastic time while onboard! There are so many activities for kids (and adults) of all ages! Disney's Oceaneer Club and Disney's Oceaneer Lab are filled with fun and exploration for your 5-year old and 4-year old. Your smallest sailors will be perfect ages to enjoy "it's a small world" nursery! There are splashtacular pools and play areas on all four ships, too! Each voyage is jam-packed with deck parties, Character Greetings, Broadway-style shows and yummy food.

    Another benefit to taking kiddos on Disney Cruises is that you are always just steps away from your stateroom if the kids need a nap or a break in-between activities. When you have a moment, check out Traveling with Little Ones to see all the amenities Disney Cruise Line provides to make sailing with the smallest buccaneers fun and easy!

    Claiborne, I think it will be so worth it to take your family on a Disney Cruise! There is an ocean full of information on the Disney Cruise Line website. If you have any questions while navigating the waters, please come back and visit us again!
