    We're thinking of doing a Disney Cruise with our little ones, wondering if there is a kiddie/toddler pool area or splash pad on the cruise ships? Also, are there any Disney character meet and greets on the cruises? Thanks!

    Welcome aboard, Diana!

    Each of Disney's four pixie-dusted ships include a family pool, and Adult Exclusive pool, and a wet and wild splash area for both everyone and one for the littlest cruisers. The Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy both feature Nemo's Reef, an enclosed splash area for toddlers. I still have vivid memories of my son as a toddler giggling and squealing as he went down the Mr. Ray stingray tiny slide over and over! Now, he's a tween, and off to the AquaDuck, but I'll never forget those sweet moments in Nemo's Reef! 

    Onboard the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, you'll find the Nephew's Splash Zone or Dori's Reef, splash areas for the young sailors onboard with pop jets and geysers and plenty of wet and wild fun! Since the U.S. Public Health Service only allows fully potty-trained children in the main pools, these fun splash zones are the perfect place for those in swim diapers to still participate in the water fun onboard!

    Back inside the ship, you'll find Disney Character Greetings from sun up to sun down and even later into the evening! My family loves that the lines are much shorter than at the parks to meet our favorite Disney friends, and that all we do is check our Disney Cruise Line Navigator App for when our favorite Disney friend will be out to greet guests and head on over! Plus, Mickey and his pals wear different outfits each day! Beach outfits, formal wear, holiday attire, pirate gear, it's such fun! I have the most adorable picture of my son at three years old decked out in a tuxedo with Mickey in his tux! Priceless!

    As you consider this vacation at sea, please let us know how else we can help, Diana!
