    We are leaving this weekend on a 7 day Eastern Caribbean on Disney Fantasy. Our children are looking forward to the Oceaneer Lab. We were in Disney World last year and still have their magic bands - can we use those for the club or do we need new ones?

    Hi there, Vanessa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your trip is literally just around the corner!  I know you are getting excited for all the amazing adventures you will have aboard the beautiful Disney Fantasy!

    Your kids will most certainly enjoy the Oceaneer Club and Lab.  Not only are there open play options, but the Daily Navigator will list activities that go on in the club so they can pick and choose from a variety of fun options! We find ourselves having to bribe our children to actually leave the club…they just love it so much!  Note: chocolate chip cookies are a GREAT bribe.  

    If you have already registered your kids for the Youth Clubs through "My Online Check-In", your kids will receive an Oceaneer Band when you arrive at Port Canaveral for check-in.  If not, you can get one from the clubs onboard.  An Oceaneer Band is similar to a Magic Band, but not the same and they will need to wear the Oceaneer Band while onboard to allow them access to/from the Youth Clubs.  So, go ahead and leave those Magic Bands at home and save them for your next trip to Walt Disney World!  

    I am so excited for you to experience all that Disney Cruise Line has to offer – make sure you don’t miss the nightly live entertainment and maybe sneak away for an adults only dinner at Palo or Remy while the kids are enjoying themselves (and their own dinner!) in the Oceaneer Lab. 

    Vanessa, I wish you and your family a wonderful and magical vacation!  I know so many memories will be made during your week at sea!

    Happy Sailing!
