    Is it true that children must be potty trained to go into pools?

    Hi there, Gennie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you sailed by with this question about cruising with Captain Mickey!  A Disney Cruise Line vacation is a wonderful and magical vacation for all ages – from the littlest of Mouseketeers to those grown-up kids, there, is something for everyone onboard!

    My family has been sailing with Captain Mickey and Disney Cruise Line since both my boys were itty bitty!  And while a lot of people questioned why we would cruise with such little ones, we simply could not come up with a reason NOT to!  We have so many memories from each of our voyages and as our boys get older, we are able to experience a whole new adventure!  We always look forward to our next trip on the “Mickey Boat” and are always actively counting down until we set sail again.  Disney Cruise Line makes traveling with little ones so easy and convenient by providing necessities for your stateroom and even having a special place just for the youngest of cruisers onboard.  Unfortunately, policy is that children who are not fully potty-trained are unable to go into the swimming pools onboard.  But, don’t worry – for those little Guests, there are splash pad areas that they are permitted to go into with a swim diaper!  My boys loved splashing around in the splash pad areas and I liked it because they were “contained” in an area that was perfect for their size!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable adventure at sea with your little one!

    Happy Sailing!
