    What time can you drop your child off at the oceaneer's club or lab? We have an early excursion and my 8 year old is going to participate, but my 4 year old is too young to come. Will I have to cancel my plans and try something else?

    Hi there, Jessica!

    Ahoy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Wahoo!!  You are going on a Disney Cruise Line vacation!!!  So much fun awaits you onboard and you and your littles are going to have the best time experiencing everything magical about cruising with Captain Mickey!

    Disney Cruise Line offers some fantastic Port Adventures, don’t they?!?!  We often struggle with which one to select because there are always so many great options to choose from.  The best part of choosing an excursion with Port Adventures is that you know that everything is already done for you and all you have to do is show up and enjoy the day.  Since many of them are restricted to older Guests, they will always have the onboard Youth Clubs open early enough to check-in any Mouseketeers that will be hanging out on the ship while you head off on your excursion.  So, no need to cancel or select a different Port Adventure because you will definitely be able to check in your four-year old to the Disney's Oceaneer Club or Lab before meeting up with your excursion group.  While you do not need to make any reservations for your little one in the Youth Club for that time, I do recommend informing the Youth Counselors (and maybe even your kiddo) that you will be heading off the ship when you check your little one in!  If you will be gone during lunchtime, they will offer food to your kiddo as well so no need to rush back to the ship if you are out and about enjoying yourselves!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable adventure at sea!  Please come back with any other questions you may have as you continue planning for your Disney Cruise Line vacation!

    Happy Sailing!
