    Hi There, My husband and I are taking my step daughter on the Disney Wonder, Aug 18/14. She will be turning 11 in November and I am wondering if it is possible for her to be part of the tween club Edge?

    Welcome aboard, Melanie! Your step daughter must be so excited to get to head out to sea with Captain Mickey and his crew! Believe me, she is in for an amazing vacation experience and so are the two of you! Disney Cruise Line knows how to cater to families, and besides the kids activities, the adults have so many spots onboard just for them! I hope you're able to sneak away for a date night or two on the high seas while you sail, Melanie!

    The Tween Club onboard the Disney Wonder is Edge, and it's a fabulous space for kids ages 11 - 14 to hang out and enjoy time with their peers and the counselors who are there to lead games, activities, and outings around the ship and help the kids get to know each other and have the most amazing cruise ever! While technically, the ages for this club begin at 11, most of the time, a 10-year old who is very close to turning 11 and has parental permission, is able to join in on the fun there. When you board the ship that first day, stop by Edge during Open House hours when you can chat with the counselors there about the possibility of your step daughter doing just that while you sail. 

    The good news for her, even if she does end up hanging out in Edge, is that there is still a lot of fun to be had in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab. She'd be lucky to be able to go back and forth between the Club and Lab and Edge. Each day you'll receive a Personal Navigator which will list the events and activities scheduled around the ship, including in the Youth Clubs. She can check out which event sounds best to her and head to that spot. I would suggest, however, that if she does plan to hang out in Edge, that she go there the first night for the ice breakers. During that time, the tweens get to know each other, and it's always better to go in when everyone is new, versus joining in when others have already gotten to know each other.

    Have so much fun planning over these next couple of weeks before you set sail, Melanie!
