    My toddler will be just shy of 3 years old when we will be cruising. Would it be possible for her to join the youth club instead of going to the nursery?

    Hi there, Heidi!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Blog!  I know you are counting down the days until your Sail Away Deck Party as you set sail to sea on a great adventure full of fun and ready to make many magical memories!

    The Youth Clubs are one of my favorite amenity that Disney Cruise Line offers!  Not only do children LOVE them, but parents get a break and some time to explore and relax making it a true vacation!  Children must be AT LEAST three years old and fully potty-trained in order to attend the Oceaneer Club and Lab.  Any cruisers younger than three do need to utilize the“it’s a small world!” nursery onboard as their Youth Club.  So, your little Mouseketeer will need to spend her time at the nursery during this sailing!  You can reserve hours for the nursery prior to your sailing through "My Cruise Activities" or you can check for availability once onboard.

    The Daily Navigator will list the schedule for Open House hours in the other clubs.  During Open House hours, children can attend any of the clubs for open playtime and scheduled activities with an adult accompanying them.  There will also be special activities geared towards the toddler age which are always fun to participate in!  The Wake Up with Disney Junior Dance Party is always a favorite for us – even as my boys have gotten older, we still enjoy dancing and singing to our favorite Disney Junior songs!

    I wish you and your family a wonderful and magical vacation!  As your planning continues, please feel free to come back with any additional questions!

    Happy Sailing!
