    Hi Is there a fee for childcare while on board a disney cruise ship? My little girl is 4, we are traveling November 30- December 7 on the Disney Magic. Thank you

    Welcome aboard, Jaime! November is here and that means that you'll be setting sail on the Disney Magic very soon!

    Disney Cruise Line's amazing Youth Clubs for ages three to 17 are included in the cost of your sailing. There is an additional hourly fee for the nursery for children three and under. But, since you've got a big four-year old, she gets to hang out in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab, both of which are included and do not require reservations.

    Each day your family will receive a Personal Navigator. This is a listing of the activities and events happening all around the Magic. You might like to bring a different colored highlighter for each family member so you can highlight your "must-do's", and plan out your day! My kids love to look ahead to the activities in the Club and Lab and decide when they want to go play. Your daughter might like the princess story times that may take place there, as well as making Flubber in the Lab, Toy Story Boot Camp, an early night pajama party, and some of the other super fun activities that are happening day and night!

    If you haven't yet done so, be sure to complete your online check-in, where you'll also register your daughter for the Youth Clubs. Once you arrive at the port, pick up her Oceaneer Band which she'll wear throughout the cruise to allow her entrance into the clubs. She is going to have such fun! Perhaps you and your husband can sneak away for some adult time while she enjoys the clubs. My husband and I love dining at the adult exclusive restaurant Palo. There is an additional cost to the meal there, but it is worth every penny! Check it out! Have fun on your cruise, Jaime!
