    While at ports do we have to stay the whole time on the island or can we board the ship whenever we would like? With two small children im not sure they will last all day on the islands. Thank you!

    Welcome aboard, Hiley!

    How exciting to hear that you will be sailing with Disney Cruise Line and enjoying the Halloween on the High Seas voyage in October. You and your young cruisers will have an awesome time onboard the Disney Magic.

    When you are visiting a port or if you are docked at Disney's Private island, Castaway Cay -- you are more than welcome to come back onboard throughout the day. A lot of families with young children will enjoy their morning on the family beach on Castaway Cay, and then head back to the ship to freshen up or take a short nap. It's less than a 10 minute walk - depending on how fast you go. Or you can take the tram to and from the ship. If you decide to disembark in the afternoon and enjoy another stroll back on land, you can do so too. Just make sure that everyone above 18 years old has their Key to the World cards and a Photo ID when disembarking. Your little ones will also need their Key to the World cards since everyone is accounted for. And don't forget, you'll need to pay close attention to the All Aboard time :-). If you decide to leave your 2 small children at the Youth Clubs onboard for the rest of the day - you can do that too! You can spend some adult time on land for the rest of the afternoon. It's all up to you on how you want to spend your day at the ports.

    I hope this information helps, Hiley. If you have any other questions, please do send in any and as much questions that you'd like. We're always happy to help!

    Happy planning!
