    Hi. What kinds of activities are geared toward the older (8-10 yr) kids in the oceaneer club/lab on the Disney Dream? Sailing in April and worried that the activities described seem too "babyish" for my 91/2 year old. Thank you.

    Ahoy Shelly!
    Welcome back to the Moms Panel!  My daughter just turned 11 and experienced the Oceaneer Club and Lab as a nine and ten year old.  What I have learned from our past sailings is that the Oceaneer Lab is geared for the older kids so when you check your daily cruise newsletter, the Personal Navigator, be sure to check this row first. Some of the activities your son or daughter may like to participate in is the Wii Challenge, Super Sloppy Science, Interactive Tables, Marshmallow Olympics, and Animation Cells. Although there is always planned programming, free time is also an option and the lab space is overflowing with things to do!  Off the main area you will find the Animator's Studio, the Wheelhouse, Craft Studio, Sound Studio, and Media Room.  My recommendation is to visit the youth areas on the first afternoon while they are offering Open House hours and then let your son/daughter check-in for secured programming that evening.  I think you will find the space and activities just right for your young cruiser!
    Thanks so much for the question, Shelly!  If you think of anything else, please let me know!
    Have a wonderful day!
