    I'm traveling with my 6 year old son on the Dec 15th cruise on the Fantasy and have a question about the kids club. I understand there is no need to sign up for a specific day ahead of time. But do they fill up quickly, i'm a little worried.

    Hi there, Chantal!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  You must be so excited for your upcoming sailing aboard the Disney Fantasy!  Prepare yourself for a week of more fun than you can imagine!  With so many onboard activities, entertainment – DO NOT MISS 'Disney's Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular', the Genie is hilarious -and a stop at Castaway Cay, be prepared for nonstop fun!

    Your six-year old is the perfect age for enjoying all that Disney Cruise Line has to offer, including the onboard Youth Clubs.  My two boys love spending time at the Oceaneer Club and Lab and I usually find myself having to bribe them when it’s time to leave!  I have learned that a promise of chocolate chip cookies (can be found multiple places onboard, including the snack stands) or pool time usually works for that.  They love participating in the organized activities as well as the free play time!  You do not need to pre-reserve time in the Oceaneer Club or Lab and there has never been an issue with them filling up.  We have never been turned away due to capacity in the Youth Clubs, so don’t worry about that!

    Be sure you download the Navigator app to your smartphone prior to your sailing ! On it you will have a detailed schedule of onboard activities including in the Youth Clubs.  If anything is a “must do” for your son, you can set a reminder on the app to alert you prior to the activity so you don’t miss out!

    As your planning continues, please feel free to come back with any additional questions you have!

    Happy Sailing!
