    My husband and I booked an adult only first night dinner at Palo on embarkation day. When does the Oceaneer's Club officially open for the kids on embarkation day?

    Ahoy Vivian! 

    What I love about a Disney Cruise is that there are tons of activities we can enjoy together as a family. Whether it's catching a Broadway-quality show, meeting our favorite Disney pals, or just relaxing by the pool, there's always something magical to do. Plus, there are plenty of opportunities for us to have some alone time while our son enjoys his own adventure in the amazing clubs. It's the perfect mix of family fun and personal relaxation.

    Rest easy, Vivian. On the day of embarkation, the kids' clubs open their doors for an exciting open house. This is a great time to explore the incredible spaces together and ask the youth counselors any questions. Secure programming typically begins at 5:30 p.m., allowing you to enjoy a worry-free dinner at Palo while your kids have a blast in the clubs.

    Remember to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for your phone. The app transforms as soon as you reach the terminal and connect to the ship’s Wi-Fi! You can check out the hours when the youth clubs are open, see your dining rotation, and peruse the daily activity schedule. Since every ship has its own charm and sometimes a slightly different schedule, the app will keep you in the loop and help you make the most of your cruise experience!

    One last thing, Vivian: Keep in mind that they don’t serve food in the clubs, so you’ll want to feed your little ones before dropping them off. The quick-service food locations near the pool are typically open until 6:00 p.m. Another option is to take advantage of complimentary room service. For an extra special treat, I highly recommend ordering a round of Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars for your crew. It's the perfect way to add a sprinkle of Disney magic to your day!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney! I hope your cruise is packed with delicious food and unforgettable memories!

    SEAS the adventure!
