Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- We are looking at booking for Oct 2011. My daughter will be 2 yrs old. We are unable to book daycare until 75 days before departure. How quickly does the center fill up? My fear is we book now and then will not have availability for adult time.

- Hi, Christy! Congratulations on considering a Disney Cruise for your family! For ours, there's no better vacation than spending time together as well as being able to invest in our marriage without our children always with us.
I understand your concern, but please know that these things have a way of working out. You can make your reservation up to 75 days in advance for Flounder's Reef (Magic or Wonder) or It's a Small World (Dream) nurseries -- while simultaneously making reservations for adult entertainment, activities and dining like excursions, spa experiences and Palo. You at least can be certain that your reservations match up for those times.
The nurseries do tend to stay booked with some guests booking even the day of embarkation. However, since cancellations are usually accepted up to 12 hours prior to a reservation, you can always check back for a particular time either on the day you board or throughout your cruise. This will allow for some impromptu adult time, too!
Additionally, you may want to bring a small umbrella-type stroller on board since little feet can get tired of walking throughout the ship, and you'll want to pack a few entertainment toys or games to play in case your little princess joins you for dinner one evening. (The waitstaff are fabulous about keeping even the youngest guests entertained and catering to every need!)
Have a beautiful day and a magical vacation! Bon voyage!
