    What tips can you provide when it comes to a 9 year old girl and a 5 year old boy in terms of activities? Thank you!

    Hi Lori,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  The wonderful thing about the Disney Cruises is that they have something for kids of all ages to enjoy!  Each day of your cruise, you will be given a Personal Navigator, which details everything that is going on during that day.  It is broken down by the various categories such as Family, Adults, Movies, Characters, Teens, Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab.  It gives the timeline of the entire day with every activity offered.  I suggest bringing a high-lighter (a different color for each child), so they can mark the things they would like to participate in.

    For many of the events in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab, they are color-coded by the type of experience.  This highlights the activities based on a general theme.  For example:
    • Clubhouse Series - Focus on movement and feature content that appeal to younger children
    • Storybook Series - Designed with a strong connection to the Disney classic stories.
    • Jump Up! Series - Include large ground games and movement oriented activities.
    • Create & Invent Series - Have a tactile focus allowing children to create and admire their work.
    • In the Spotlight Series - Focus on children's stage presence with lots of activities and enthusiasm.
    • Solve it! Series - Less active, but will challenge children with problem/solutions-based activities.
    • Out and About Series - Are set outside the designated Youth Activity Spaces and consist of very active events.

    I have always been impressed by the variety of activities offered for the children - there is something to fit just about every personality!

    Have a great time!
