    Can you leave the boat while your kids are in the nursery and oceanears clubs?

    Welcome aboard, Rebecca!

    Disney Cruise Line features the most amazing Youth Clubs at sea, just wait until you get to set foot in those yourself! Swing by during Open House hours that first day onboard so your kiddos can explore the spaces and you can see them too. After that, besides a few other Open House hours, the clubs are for kids only, no parents allowed! You may drop your children off in the clubs anytime you'd like, though the It's A Small World Nursery does require advanced reservations and an additional hourly cost. The clubs for the older kids are included in the cost of your cruise, no reservations needed, so feel free to bring the kids by whenever they'd like! 

    Parents are welcome to head off on their own while their kids are playing to their hearts' content in the Youth Clubs. If you'd like to sneak away for a Spa Treatment, Adult Exclusive Dining, or yes, even off the ship on one of Disney Cruise Line's Port Adventures, your kids will be in great hands. If you are leaving the ship, please be sure to tell the counselors in the clubs when you bring the kids there, as well as leave a cell phone number and the name of your Port Adventure. They are then able to contact you or the vendor if you're on one of Disney's Port Adventures, in the unlikely event that they would need to contact you. Onboard and at Castaway Cay, they can contact you via the provided Wave Phones.

    Be sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App so you're ready to use it once you board the ship to check out the schedule of events and activities onboard, Rebecca!

    Have a wonderful cruise!
