    Hi! We are traveling on the Disney Magic next month with our 4 year old and 17 month old. I see that I can request bed rails for our 4 year old. Are the bed rails for the bed that pulls down from the ceiling or the couch bed?

    Hi there, Lindsey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Get ready for a MAGICal and memorable vacation with your little ones!  I am so excited for you as the Magic was the first ship we took my little ones on so it is very special to us.

    The bed rails that you can request are used on the couch bed.  The top bunk that pulls down from the ceiling has a metal rail that is affixed to it.  Each evening, your stateroom host/hostess will service your room and set up your pack and play and make the couch into a bed.  If your youngest is going to be sleeping in a pack and play, then I would recommend putting your four-year old in the couch bed with rails.  We have traveled many times with this arrangement and it has worked out very well for us.  The pack and play will be set up in front of the couch bed.  There is a fabric divider between the couch/pack and play sleeping area and the double bed.  We like to bring clothes pins to keep that area closed off and dark for the littles to sleep!  A travel sound machine is also incredibly helpful to block any outside room noises.  

    You can register your littles for the Youth Clubs when you complete your Online Check-In and also reserve time in the “it’s a small world” nursery! for your youngest.  We liked using nursery hours for afternoon nap times to ensure little one got his rest and we were still able to enjoy some time on the ship or spend some one on one time with our oldest.   

    I know you are going to have a wonderful vacation with so many wonderful memories made!  I wish you the best time onboard!

    Happy Sailing!
