    Hi! We have a 3 year old and 14 month old and we're going on the 4 day Bahama Cruise on Disney Dream. We're a little confused on the nursery and how/when to sign them up? Also, any tips on what would be fun with them?

    Ahoy, William!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Cruising with little ones is a blast! I couldn't wait to take my son on his first Disney Cruise as an infant. Your sea guppies will love playing in "it's a small world" nursery! with the fantastic Youth Counselors. How fun that they will be able to experience this amazing space together during your upcoming cruise!?

    Due to space being limited, I absolutely suggest booking Nursery hours when your advance booking window opens and your cruise has been paid in full. Your advance booking window is determined based on your Castaway Club member level. For example, if this will be your first cruise, you'll be able to book Nursery hours up to 75 days before your sail date. If you've already taken at least one Disney Cruise, check out when you can start making reservations online so you can schedule Nursery time as far in advance as possible! (That link will also give you instructions on how to register your kiddos once your advance booking window opens up!)

    If you're unable to reserve a specific time online, don't worry! There will be an "it's a small world" nursery! Open House on embarkation day where you can speak with the Youth Counselors, tour the Nursery and try to reserve any additional Nursery hours on a first-come, first-served basis that you couldn't grab online.

    If your toddlers are anything like mine, they'll love playing alongside Dory in the fountains while splashing around Nemo's Reef and dancing with all their favorite friends at the Disney Junior Pirate & Princess Dance Party! Keep checking the Personal Navigator newsletter you'll receive each evening in your stateroom for all the Disney Character meet and greets onboard.
