    My kids 6 & 9 are sailing w/us for the 1st time. I want to go to Atlantis, look around resort at our own leisure & hang out at the beach. I know you have a Port Adventure for the day but I am wondering if it may be better to get a taxi?

    Hi Erica!

    Thank you so much for visiting the Moms Panel. How exciting to hear that you are beginning to plan your kids' very first Bahamian voyage on the Disney Cruise. Your 2 buccaneers are going to have a blast at the Oceaneer Club and Lab, and I won't be surprised if they end up spending most of their time there. There's a myriad of planned activities at the Youth Clubs, and most kids will engage and may be difficult to peel away. I'm sure you'll have an earful of stories each night about the fun and adventure that they've experienced that day.

    Nassau for the 1st time might be enjoyed more by taking advantage of one of the port adventures offered by the Disney Cruise. These are well planned and family-centric day trips that allow you to just enjoy the day with the kids, and not have to worry about what and where to go. The Atlantis Beach Day and Discover Atlantis port adventure is a hassle-free excursion that my family and I have enjoyed. The price of this tour includes transportation, Atlantis property access and even lunch. You'll even get a quick tour of Nassau on your way to Atlantis. It's a comfortable and convenient way to get from the ship to Atlantis and back. The guides will escort guests from the ship to the motor coaches at the port, and you'll be whisked away to your days' adventure.

    If you choose to explore on your own, you'll need to plan out your transportation (taxi ride) to Atlantis. There are day passes sold at the resort, based on availability and daily occupancy rates. You run the risk of passes selling out, especially if you go on a busy day or at peak season. I hope this helps, Erica! Happy planning. ~ Dolly
