    How does the kids club make an only child feel comfortable? Do they provide assistance to children who need a little extra TLC?

    Ahoy, Maureen!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you're either thinking about or preparing for an upcoming Disney Cruise Line cruise! You and your little Mouseketeer will make so many memories traveling to exotic places while being surrounded by the magic of Disney each day.

    The Youth Clubs onboard each of the four ships are incredible! If your kiddo will need a little extra time to acclimate himself/herself, I have a suggestion. On embarkation day, as well as throughout the cruise, the Youth Clubs will have set hours for Youth Activities Open House events where parents are allowed to join their kids for activities! Your child might feel more comfortable once he/she experiences the Youth Clubs with you there, too. This will also be a great time for you to have a conversation with the Youth Activities counselors about your sweet buccaneer. Although the Youth Activities counselors can't provide one-on-one care, I do know that they will do a wonderful job facilitating a super fun and inviting atmosphere for your child to participate in!

    The Youth Activities Open House hours will be listed in the Personal Navigator newsletter or Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. The newsletter will be left in your stateroom each evening by your Stateroom Host/Hostess. I recommend downloading the app to your mobile device before setting sail!

    Maureen, if you have any future questions, please don't hesitate to sail back and visit us again!
