- Hi! Have 22 month old twins and taking them to WDW for the 3rd time in Aug. Thinking of planning Jan trip and doing a cruise. How does the nursery work? Only allowed 12 hrs? Does cruise length change the limit? Better to wait until they r 3? Thanks

- Hi, Linda!
Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World (WDW) vacation -- you're starting your little ones off right by introducing them to the wonderful world of Disney very early in their lives! I think you should further their "knowledge base" by taking them on a Disney Cruise. I often tell my friends with young children that although WDW is a fun, active and magical vacation -- a Disney Cruise takes that magic and adds an element of "ooh-la-la"...especially for the grown ups!
In order to enjoy some of the adult areas on board or simply time to relax on your own, your twins will experience toddler-style fun at Flounder's Reef (Disney Magic/Wonder) or It's a Small World (Disney Dream). Open throughout the day and evening, the nurseries provide care for children ages 3 months to 3 years for a small additional fee. There is a limit on the amount of hours a parent can make nursery reservations, and I believe that the maximum is 15 hours. However, you can check with the Disney Cruise Line travel experts at (800) 951-3532 for the latest information on reservations and the stipulations on nursery stays.
I hope this helps you plan, and thanks for visiting me here on the Disney Moms Panel. I've included a video about Kid's Programs which gives you a sneak peek into those spaces. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.
