    We are planning to cruise on the Disney Dream this summer and wonder if there are any kids club activities our boys can do together (they will be 8 and 12). They are very hesitant to participate unless they can be together. Thanks!

    Hi, Becky! With all the coverage about Disney's Dream arriving at Port Canaveral, aren't you thrilled to be counting down to your summer vacation aboard?

    I understand your concern and dilemma about the age span of your sons and finding club activities to enjoy together. We face similar situations with our wide-range of children, too, and like yours, they enjoy being together.

    Here's what I suggest. Register your boys for where they are "suppose" to go -- the 8-year-old for the Oceaneer's Club/Lab and the 12-year-old for Edge. Once you come aboard, visit the two spots during the open house and let them explore. With as much time as you'll spend together as a family, you might be surprised that your boys choose their separate hangouts. However, if they still are hesitant, you can talk to the counselors and ask if the 12-year-old can go with his brother in the Oceaneer Club/Lab. (I would discourage you from requesting that the younger son hang out at Edge since he would be so much younger than the other guests.)

    That's how I would handle it, and I'm sure it's going to be less of a situation than you anticipate. Disney goes beyond expectations with all that is planned and designed for each of your sons' specific age and stage of life. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation! Bon voyage!
