    Do we need MagicBands on a Disney Cruise? I read somewhere that the kids need them for the Oceaneers Club.

    Hi there, Erin!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you sailed by with your question about your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation!  It appEARs that you have a FANTASTic adventure planned complete with a Star Wars Day at Sea!!  I am so very excited for you and the fun that awaits you onboard this epic voyage to sea!

    Disney Cruise Line does not utilize MagicBands onboard, but any Mouseketeers that are registered for the onboard Youth Clubs will receive a Oceaneer Band when you arrive at Port Canaveral for embarkation.  The Oceaneer Bands look very similar to the MagicBands used at the theme parks and are used to check children in and out of the Youth Clubs.  When you complete your Online Registration, you will have the option to register youth for the onboard clubs and once this is complete their bands will be ready for them!  Your children will have such a great time in the Oceaneer Club and Lab; my boys always look forward to spending as much time in there as possible…and I can’t say I blame them!  With activities, games, new friends and incredible counselors waiting to play, who wouldn’t want to be there?!?  Be sure to stop by with them during the scheduled Open House hours to play alongside them and join in on the fun!

    Make sure you’ve got your calendar noted at the 75-day mark when first-time Guests can complete their Online Check-In and book onboard activities such as complimentary character greetings tickets, adult-exclusive dining reservations and port excursions!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable adventure at sea!  Please come back with any other planning questions you may have!

    Happy Sailing!
