- Dream-grandsons 7 & 9 yrs-can i get info for kids club-pre register, hours, how do we drop off, meals included. deposit for ID braclet? etc. I know they won't want to leave once they go in. They are not ones to sit long-so dining rooms would be limite

- Hi again, Denise! When it's time for your online check-in prior to your cruise, you'll be able to register your seven and nine year olds for the Oceaneer Club and Lab. You'll be able to fill out all the forms necessary online at that point, note who is allowed to pick the children up, and set a password for pick up.
Once you arrive at the port, your children can get their Mickey Bands which give them access into the club area. You'll sign a waiver stating that if you do not return the band, or it is lost, you'll be charged $50 for replacement. Hours will be listed in your Personal Navigator and are usually from 9:00 a.m. to midnight, including a wide variety of events and activities throughout each day. Bring a highlighter so you can mark on your Personal Navigator which activities look best!
When you're ready to drop the kids off in the club, simply bring them to the entrance where they will have their Mickey Band scanned by one of the counselors, send them in to use the really fun handwashing machines, and wave goodbye, knowing they're in for tons of fun, while you can sneak away for some adult time!
If you have the second dining seating, you'll enjoy that that seating includes Dine n' Play. Since it's a later seating, kids are served first and about 45 minutes into the seating, counselors from the clubs arrive at the entrance to each main dining restaurant to take children who are ready to go play. Then, the adults finish their meal at their own pace, and the kids can go enjoy some kids-only fun! In addition, lunch and dinner is served in the clubs at around 12:45 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. The meals are quick kid-friendly offerings, but do try to take the kids to the main dining restaurants for dinners at least a few times, and especially at Animator's Palate, as they'll really enjoy the show night there!
Have fun as you continue to plan, Denise!
