    Leaving tomorrow on my first cruise (Fantasy) for 7 nights. I have a 11 month and 3 yrs old (not potty trained). How can I get more than 18 hrs per child at the nursery? Pleeese :)

    Hi there, Alexandra!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  WOW!!  Your Disney Cruise Line vacation is HERE!!  I am so excited for you and the amazing time that awaits you onboard the beautiful Disney Fantasy!

    My family has been sailing with Captain Mickey on the “Mickey Boat” since my boys were both under one, so we have definitely utilized the onboard “it’s a small world” nursery! on many occasions!  We were always so very comfortable leaving our boys in the excellent care of the nannies in the nursery and our boys were always had smiles on their sweet faces when we picked them up, so I know they had a great time in there too!  Since nursery space is limited and they keep a close eye on the caregiver to child ratio, Guests are allotted a certain number of hours to pre-book during their sailing to ensure all Guests have the chance to utilize the space.  Once you get onboard you can certainly go to the nursery and inquire about getting additional hours for your littles in there, but that is not guaranteed.  I recommend stopping by soon after embarkation to familiarize yourself (and your littles) with the space and you can inquire about the additional hours at that time.  Please note that there is a fee associated with utilizing the nursery that will automatically be added to your stateroom folio.

    Have the most FANTAStic adventure at sea, Alexandra!  Wishing you nothing but magical moments!

    Happy Sailing!
