    What are the weight restrictions, if any, for pelican plunge water slides? My teenage boys are the size of large grown men. My 17yr old is the size of an NFL linebacker. I would rather know ahead of time than they get embarrassed while there.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Beth!

    How wonderful that you will be sailing this fall with your pirates on the Disney Dream.  I hope your pirate crew enjoys all of the treasures offered on Castaway Cay

    As a mother, I can completely understand your concern that your young gentleman enjoy their time on the island.  You can rest easy knowing that Pelican Plunge does not have a maximum weight restriction, only that guests must be at least a minimum height of 38 inches to ride.  Guests do need to swim out to the platform, so as long as your pirates are able to swim, they should have no problems enjoying this fun slide!  While onboard the ship, your boys can also ride the AquaDuck, the best water coaster at sea!

    Be sure to check out Vibe, the onboard teen club for guests ages 14 to 17.  This space offers a haven for your boys during your sailing and an opportunity for them to cruise their way.  Vibe offers a comfortable space, entertainment and even a coffee bar for teens to relax and get to know their fellow cruisers onboard.  

    To keep in touch with your teens while sailing, have everyone download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App on their devices before you arrive.  While onboard, this app has a chat feature so everyone is able to communicate without wireless service.  The app also offers a schedule of onboard activities, details of your Port Adventures and dinner menus.

    Enjoy making memories on magical vacation!  Angie
