    What strategies do you have while being on the Disney cruise for naps? I will be bringing a 4 year old and a 1 year-old on the cruise. I am concerned that the little noise my toddler makes when getting up from nap may wake my baby? Any tips would be great

    Ahoy Stephanie!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  How exciting that you will soon be departing on your high seas adventure!  With so much magic included when you cruise with Captain Mickey, you are sure to make some incredible memories with your pirates-in-training next month.

    Disney Cruise Line offers a lot of great amenities to ensure smooth sailing when traveling with little onesStaterooms are also designed with families in mind!  Most staterooms are equipped with a curtain that divides the room.  This is one way you can create peace during nap time and avoid any salty sailors.  Your toddler can nap in the larger bed on one side of the curtain and your baby on the second side.  This should help minimize the noise if your toddler awakes before your baby.

    You can also take advantage of the great youth spaces onboard like the Oceaneer Club and "it's a small world" nursery!  If you are traveling with another adult, once your toddler awakes (or while your baby is napping) one of you could take them to enjoy some time in the Oceaneer Club or any of the other amazing spaces onboard.  You could also make reservations for your baby in the nursery during their regular nap time and they can sleep peacefully in this space.  Reservations in the nursery are available for an additional fee and are very popular, so be sure to reserve your time early!

    Download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App for the most up to date information on the youth clubs during your vacation!  Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail!
