Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I see several activities for our 3 year old granddaughter to do but if she gets involved with them is that considered babysitting and is there a charge
- - Asked by RoseAnn from Indiana on 11/12/2013
- Welcome aboard, RoseAnn! It sounds like you have a magical Disney cruise coming up soon! Your three-year old granddaughter is going to have such a wonderful time on the ship!
There are activities all around the ship all day and night, so there is always something for everyone. Each day, you'll receive a Personal Navigator which lists all of the exciting events and activities for that day. As long as your granddaughter is fully potty-trained, she is able to attend the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab, the two Youth Clubs onboard for children aged three to 12. You'll check her in and out of the club, where she'll get to stay and play with the counselors and participate in exciting activities like Do-Si-Do with Snow White and Mouseketeer Training. What fun! This is all included in the cost of your cruise, as are all of the other children's activities you'll see listed for families together in your Personal Navigator each day, so no additional fees!
However, if she is not fully potty-trained, she'll need to head to the nursery if you sneak away for adult time. There is an hourly fee for kids up to age three in the nursery, and advanced reservations are required.
Hopefully she's fully potty trained (or will be by the time you set sail) so she can enjoy the fun in the clubs, RoseAnn! In addition, there will be lots of activities in which to participate together, including the Princess Gathering where four or five Disney princesses meet in the Atrium lobby to say hello, pose for photos and sign autographs for the little cruisers! If you want to attend, be sure to arrive and get in line early (45 mins to an hour ahead), to ensure you get a spot! The line can be very very long otherwise!
Have fun planning, and please let me know how else I can help, RoseAnn!
