    We are thinking of booking a Disney cruise. We will have a one year old at the time we are looking to sail. What do you think about bringing a one year old on a cruise? Will she be able to enjoy herself and will we?

    Hi Cheryl!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am SO glad you sailed by with your question about planning a Disney Cruise Line vacation with a little Mouseketeer!  My family’s first Disney Cruise Line vacation was when my oldest son was seven months old and we haven’t stopped!

    A Disney Cruise Line vacation is a memorable vacation for any age and there are activities and entertainment geared towards all ages, even the littlest cruisers.  You will love seeing your little princess’s face light up when she sees Mickey and friends for the first time and while she won’t remember her very first Disney Cruise Line vacation, you most certainly will.  Disney Cruise Line makes traveling with little ones so convenient by providing pack and plays and diaper pails for your stateroom and each Disney Cruise Line ship has an onboard nursery that is reserved just for the little ones!  My husband and I took great advantage of the nursery onboard when our boys were little because it gave us an opportunity to explore the ship’s adult-exclusive spaces or even enjoy an adventure on land.  We knew they were being so well cared for in the nursery and that we were easily reachable if needed!  There are even activities that are geared towards the little cruisers – our favorite was always the “Wake Up with Disney Jr.” dance parties which were conveniently scheduled for early mornings since my boys have always been early risers!

    Oh, I hope you plan a magical voyage and come back with all your other planning questions once your adventure is booked!  This will be a vacation filled with magical memories you will never forget!
