    Hi, my name is Victoria and my family and I are going in our first cruise. I made reservations for dinning for my husband and I at night, is there any babysitting available? or what am I suppose to do with my kids?

    Welcome aboard, Victoria! Congratulations on booking your very first cruise with Disney! There is so much magic in store for everyone in your family because Captain Mickey and his crew truly offer something for everyone, no matter their ages!

    The answer to your question is yes! While there is no babysitting per se, there are fabulous Youth Clubs for kids of all ages, so your little ones can hang out there to participate in entertainment and super fun activities with the Youth Counselors and new friends while you and your hubby sneak away for an Adult Exclusive dinner at Palo or Remy!

    If your little ones are ages three through 12, they have two clubs to enjoy: Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab. My kids love playing in Andy's Toy Story Room, sliding down the Slinky Dog slide, dressing up in Pixie Hollow, learning superhero techniques from the Avengers, Disney Junior fun in the Mickey Mouse Club, and so much more, all depending on which ship you're enjoying. No need to make reservations, as the kids can be dropped off whenever you'd like or whenever they see something that they just can't miss on the activity schedule, and believe me, that will be often!

    Tweens, ages 11-14 hang out in Edge, and Teens in Vibe, the club for 14-17 year-olds. Now, if you have kiddos younger than three, there is a spot for them too! It's A Small World Nursery caters to the tiniest cruisers, but don't think they miss out on the fun. There are amazing age-appropriate activities, character encounters, entertainment, and nap rooms. It's A Small World Nursery does require advanced reservations and an hourly fee, so be sure to sign up for that online at the same time you make reservations for your Adult Exclusive Dining, as times do fill up.

    Have such fun, Victoria!
