    Hello, I would like to do a shore excursion that leaves early. Will I be able to check my 7 and 9 year old daughters into the kids club before 9am? Does it open at “guests ashore” time on port days? We will be doing the Mediterranean Cruise. Thanks!

    Hi there, Anne!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  You are going to have the most incredible vacation aboard the Disney Magic while sailing the Mediterranean!  My family sailed the same itinerary a few years ago and it was just beautiful!  Get ready for a busy, but incredible week aboard!  SO much to see and do – both onboard and onshore!

    The onboard Youth Clubs will be open prior to your Port Adventure meeting time so that you can drop off and check in your kids before you need to meet for your excursion onshore!  Check your Personal Navigator or Navigator app for the hours of the Youth Clubs, but you can certainly get them there and checked in prior to your scheduled meeting time.  They will have the best time in there; the counselors do such a great job of entertaining and playing with the kids, they won’t even know you’re off doing something fun and exciting onshore!  On a recent cruise, my boys requested to stay in the Oceaneer Club instead of exploring the port city with us because they knew how much fun they would have in there!  Needless to say, we were happy to oblige with that request and enjoy a few hours to ourselves!

    If you have not yet done so, go ahead and register your girls for the Youth Clubs when you complete your Online Check-In.  Then, when you get to the port in Barcelona for embarkation, they will receive their Oceaneer Bands and be ready go to!

    Have the best time on your MAGICal vacation in Europe, Anne!

    Happy Sailing!
