    Is there a time limit in which a child can be in the Oceaneer Club/Lab? I have a 3 and 4 year old. Will they only be allowed in there for a certain amount of time?

    Welcome aboard, Stephanie! With a three and a four year old, your family vacation with Disney Cruise Line is going to be so memorable! They are at such great ages to enjoy all the magic that is in store!

    There is no set time limit for kids in the Oceaneer Club and Lab. They are welcome to pop in and out whenever you'd like them to. No need to sign up ahead of time either. Just check out your Personal Navigator each day. This schedule of the events and activities around the ship has lines dedicated to all the fun that will be occurring each hour in the clubs. Bring a different colored highlighter for each family member and mark up your Navigator each day so you know which activities are favorites and where to be to enjoy all the action. 

    Hopefully you and your husband can sneak away for some of the fabulous adult activities on the ship while your kiddos play to their heart's content with the amazing counselors and even some of their favorite Disney characters who stop into the clubs. I highly recommend booking a brunch or dinner at Palo if you get the chance. This Adult Exclusive restaurant is a favorite of mine. My husband and I never miss the chance to dine there. Believe me, your kids will be having the time of their lives in the clubs, so you won't feel guilty sneaking away for a romantic dinner alone! 

    But, there are all sorts of family activities for the whole family to enjoy together as well, so don't miss out on attending those together! You know, even the clubs have Open House hours when parents get to stay and participate with their kids in the activities. I love making Flubber with my kids in the Lab and we've also enjoyed baking cookies there together too! I can't wait for you to see that first Personal Navigator and all the things you have to choose from, Stephanie!

    Have fun planning your cruise!
