    I have a 13 year old daughter and don’t feel comfortable leaving her alone while me and my husband go to dinner. Can I leave her at the kids club with her ten year old brother

    Hello, Naveen! Welcome back to the planDisney panel where my pals and I are happy to be answering your questions. We just love to help chart a course for fun and adventure with the Disney Cruise Line!

    Naveen, I have children that are a similar age to yours, and my husband and I enjoy an adults-only dinner at Palo every time we cruise. While the younger one can check in for activities in Disney's Oceaneer Lab, this space is just intended for sailors ages 3-12. So what's a tween to do? Spend time with cool counselors and fellow friends in their age range!

    Edge is the spot just for guests ages 11-14. This is where your daughter can find a range of games to play and counselor-led activities to take part in. At Edge, tweens can come and go as they please and check out what's happening. Once you have stepped aboard the ship, you can take a peek at the guided activities in this space via the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. I always recommend that tweens and teens head to the "getting to know you" style activities that usually take place on the first night of the voyage. There will be some icebreakers and a chance to meet new friends! 

    Just for your planning purposes, please keep in mind that Edge is not a space where tweens check in and check out with counselors like the younger guests do in the secured Oceaneer Lab. If you'd like your daughter to stay in Edge during your dinner, please let her know of your expectations and share your plans with the counselors as well. 

    One final tip for your sailing... did you know that all of the youth spaces onboard schedule Open House times throughout the cruise? This is when guests of all ages (yes, even the adults!) can go and enjoy the unique and immersive spaces usually reserved for the kids onboard. With the age range of your children, it will also be a fun opportunity for them to spend time together in their respective youth clubs. You can find the Open House times listed on the daily activity schedule in the... you guessed it... Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. 

    It's one super helpful app, so please be sure to download it before you set sail. You can even log in to the app from home to add cruise activities, check-in for your cruise (30 days prior), and celebrate the countdown till your voyage begins! 

    Please cruise to planDisney the next time we can be of service to you. Happy Sailing!
