    Are there life jackets or puddle jumpers for 4 year old available on the cruise ?

    Hi there, Melissa!

    Ahoy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your FANTAStic voyage with Captain Mickey is just a few days away and I KNOW you must be so very excited!  And, believe me…you have every reason to be!  From that first step onboard to that final swipe of your Key to the World Card at the end of your week onboard you will have so much fun and make the best memories!

    Go ahead and leave that puddle jumper at home freeing up extra space in your suitcase for all the souvenirs you will acquire during your voyage because you will find complimentary life jackets (in a variety of sizes) for Guest use at the pools – and on Castaway Cay!  So, unless you (or your Mouseketeer) have a strong attachment or comfort-level with a puddle jumper, you can leave that behind and use one of the life jackets available onboard.  Then, when you visit Castaway Cay, you can pick up a life jacket near the lifeguard stands at Castaway Family Beach and while they are plentiful, I do recommend getting a life vest as soon as you get to the island to ensure you have the proper size needed for your day on the beach.  And, another hint…as you disembark the ship, try to grab a complimentary wagon to use for the day; they sure do come in handy when carting towels, bags, and kiddos to the beach!

    Melissa, as you continue packing for your adventure at sea, make sure you’ve looked over the recommended packing list!  Some things that I never leave home without include clothespins (to keep your beach towels affixed to your lounge chairs), Ziploc bags (PLENTY of uses for these), some large trash bags (for wet and sandy swimsuits) and lanyards (if you are a first time Guest) to keep your Key to the World card in!

    Wishing you the BEST vacation ever with many memories made!

    Happy Sailing!
