    Can my 3 1/2 year old stay with my 5 1/2 year old in the child watch area? In other words, is the nursery my only option for child watch?

    Welcome aboard, Norma! Disney Cruise Line offers the most fabulous Youth Clubs at sea! They are not plain old childcare, but pure entertainment and fun! My children beg to go to the Youth Clubs and we have a hard time getting them to leave! From making slimy goo like Stitch to baking cupcakes and pizza, to crafts with Tinkerbell, Toy Story Boot Camp, a Piston Cup Race, and Pluto's Pajama Party, there is always something exciting happening in the clubs!

    Both of your children are old enough to attend the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab together. These clubs are for young guests ages three to 12. However, children must be fully potty-trained, so as long as your three year old is potty trained, you're good to go! There are amazing counselors in the clubs that guide kids in the activities and entertainment once the parents check them in. In addition to these secured programming times, there are also a couple hours each day that are Open House in one of the clubs or the other, when parents and guests of any age can stay and play with their children. So if you get jealous of the fun they're having, bring them during Open House when you can join in the fun!

    Have such fun planning this magical adventure at sea, and please stop back with other questions before you set sail. We're happy to help!
