    My husband, kids: 4&1 years are going on the Disney Dream 4 night cruise in Feb.I need some advice re: babysitting times bc I don't want to miss the sit-down dinners or shows in the evening, but I would also like some "adult" time with my hus

    Ahoy there Lindsay!

    It is almost February and almost time for you to step onboard the extraordinary Disney Dream. 

    Disney has made it so easy to escape for a few hours for some adult time onboard by providing the best childcare and youth activities at sea!

    Your four year old will not want to leave the Oceaneer's Club & Lab!  The youth counselors have many fun activities planned each and every day.  The hours run from 9:00am to midnight, and you can check-in and out as much as you like between those hours.  My two can't get enough of the kids' activities while on board!  The youth programming at the Oceaneer's Club & Lab is included in your cruise fare.

    It's a Small World Nursery will be your childcare facility for your one year old.  Reservations are required to keep a low child to counselor ratio.  You are allowed to reserve 10 hours prior to boarding and can request more time once onboard.  There is an hourly fee with a two-hour minimum required.  It is usually opened from 9:00am-1:00pm and then again from 5:30pm-midnight.  Times due vary depending on whether the ship is docked or at sea.  Your Personal Navigator, which provides a detailed listing of all the ship's activities, will have times listed for each day.  It's a Small World Nursery is conveniently located on Deck 5 close by the Oceaneer's Club & Lab.

    Have a wonderful cruise and Bon Voyage!
