- I just booked our first Disney Cruise for May 2011. Kids will be 6 and 2. Anything I should know about? We are doing the 4 night Bahamian cruise. Thank You

Congratulations on booking your first Disney Cruise! I absolutely love taking the 4-night voyages with our young children; we really make the ship our vacation destination.
First of all I would highly recommend obtaining passports for everyone in your party. The U.S. Government passport regulations are continually changing so I think it is smart to be prepared for anything, and obtain your passports now. You can find more information about this HERE.
Your reservation confirmation that you receive in the mail will outline your final payment deadlines. I would be sure to write those down on your calendar, as you will not receive any notification that this date is approaching.
Your six year old is the perfect age to take advantage of the Oceaneer Club and Lab, and you are more than welcome to bring the two year old into the club as long as you accompany him/her. This is a great treat for the little ones that aren't quite old enough to participate alone, but want to check out this great play area.
If you plan on reserving space for the two-year old in Flounders Reef Nursery I would do so at your first available opportunity.
Now since you're traveling with a little one, you should be sure to check out the Babies Travel Lite service that is available to Disney Cruise LIne guests. This service allows you to pre-order supplies for your baby, which really cuts down on the amount of luggage you need to bring. Click HERE and scroll dow to the Babies Travel Lite section for details.
Hope this helps!
