    We’re taking our daughter on her first Disney cruise in November, and she’ll be turning 1 while we’re on it. I saw they do open houses for the kids club.. is there an age restriction for that too? We’d love to just be able to check it out with her!

    Ahoy, Ali!

    I can't think of a better way to celebrate your daughter's first birthday than on a Disney Cruise Line vacation! I can only imagine how cute she will look while onboard and the adorable pictures you'll be able to capture. My son was just over a yEAR on our first Disney Cruise, and those are some of my favorite vacation memories, and although he doesn't remember, he loves to hEAR the stories and see the pictures from that special sailing. 

    Ali, I have some great news for you about the Open House hours that are offered at the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab. All ages are welcome when these are available, which is typically at least once per day. I know your princess will enjoy being able to explore these imaginative areas with you! I also recommend checking your Personal Navigator and Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for events for the youngest sailors onboard like Wake up with Disney Junior and Toddler Time. Some of my favorite memories of my son were his interactions with the Disney Characters! You'll love all the meet-and-greet opportunities that will be available throughout the cruise beginning in the cruise terminal. 

    Ali, I'm so excited for your daughter's birthday celebration with Mickey! Be sure to pick up a birthday button at Guest Services as a special keepsake and have your daughter's birthday noted on your cruise reservation so your dining team can acknowledge it. If you'd like to order a cake or room decorations, look under "Onboard Gifts" under the "Already Booked" tab on the Disney Cruise Line home page. And if you have any other questions, please let us know! We are always happy to help.

    Have a MAGICAL day!
