    Hi! We have 4 kids and are trying to plan onshore activities. Do my children need to be with a parent or guardian while on shore? Or are the activities (i.e. dolphin swimming) chaperoned with Disney personnel? Thank you!

    Hi Kristine!

    Thanks for sailing back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with another excellent question! You are at one of my favorite stages of the planning process prior to an upcoming Disney Cruise! I love looking through the list of Port Adventures and choosing excursions for each port of call. There are so many fun Port Adventures to choose from, it's always a tough choice!

    Your kiddos are so lucky to have the experience of traveling to exotic places with Captain Mickey leading the way! Children who are under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while on Port Adventures with the exception of any excursions that are specifically listed as "teen only." If your kiddos are excited to swim with dolphins, take a look at the "Know Before You Go" section under the Port Adventure's description for specific rules relating to that particular excursion. For example, children 10 years of age and older may participate in the dolphin portion of the Atlantis Dolphin Cay Shallow Water Interaction & Discover Atlantis by themselves, so long as a parent or guardian is booked on the Observer at Atlantis Dolphin Cay & Discover Atlantis tour.

    Kristine, I hope I was able to help you plan for your upcoming adventures ashore! If you think of any other questions, please come back and visit us again! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that you're able to book the Port Adventures you want at each port of call!
