    We are looking into a Disney cruise. We will have 2 3 year old boys. We have been looking at the Youth club for the 3 year old boys. Do they have to go all day every day or can they go for specific activities? Does it cost extra or included?

    Welcome aboard, Katie! My kids love the Youth Clubs onboard all four of Disney Cruise Line's pixie-dusted ships. In fact, sometimes we have a hard time getting them to leave the fun activities in the clubs!

    My son was only three years old, like your boys, when we first set sail with Captain Mickey and his crew. I was a bit worried about leaving him in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab, but quickly found out that it was such a treat for him to go there for the fun and educational activities and entertainment. The counselors there are truly amazing and really get the kids involved and engaged. There is no extra cost for the clubs for ages three and up, and as long as your little sailors are fully potty-trained, they're welcome to join in on the fun!

    Different activities are going on all day and night, and kids are welcome to pop in and out whenever they or their parents would like. Most of the time, the club has secured programming time when parents simply drop off the kids to participate with the counselors. Other times, there are Open House hours when parents stay with their kids to join in on the fun. No need to plan when they go, as you may simply check your Personal Navigator each day or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App, to find the activities that sound like "must-do's" for your boys, then bring them by. Or, if you're planning a date night out at one of the Adult Exclusive spaces onboard (I highly recommend dinner reservations for you and your hubby at Palo, it's my favorite!), then drop the kids off for fun while you go enjoy some adult fun of your own!

    Disney is super flexible that way because this is your cruise after all! You should be able to do the activities you want when you'd like, and that goes for the kiddos too! Have such fun planning, Katie!
