Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • I would like to go on a Disney Cruise for a graduation present for my 18 year old. Can she still visit Vibe and do the Wild Side Teen Adventure??
  • - Asked by Barbara from Massachusetts on 12/25/2013
  • Welcome aboard, Barbara! What a graduation gift that would be! A cruise on one of Disney's pixie-dusted ships always brings with it lots of magic!

    Unfortunately, once your daughter turns 18, she is considered an adult and not eligible for Vibe and The Wild Side Teen Adventure on Castaway Cay, as these are strictly for those aged 14 - 17. 

    The good news, however, is that she will then be able to enjoy so many of the exciting adult activities onboard. Relaxing by the Quiet Cove Pool, enjoying a spa treatment at Senses Salon and Spa, partying late into the night in the nighttime district and being entertained at one of the adult exclusive cabaret style shows are only a few of the new experiences that she'll be able to enjoy, having just turned 18. But, my favorite is the Adult Exclusive dining onboard at Palo or Remy. These restaurants are reserved exclusively for those 18 and older, and what treat it would be to have a special graduation celebratory dinner or brunch (or both!) there while onboard! 

    And at Castaway Cay, while she won't be able to join in on the Wild Side Teen Adventure, there is an entire area of the island dedicated to adults 18 and over called Serenity Bay.

    There are also get-togethers each day listed in the Personal Navigator for Club 18*21. Young adults aged 18 - 21 get together with the Cruise Staff team for lunches, outings around the ship, games and trivia and other fun events. While there isn't a dedicated club area for this group like there is for Vibe, and there are only one or two scheduled events each day, it's still a great way to meet others of similar age, especially the first few days on the ship, and then meet up with them for other get-togethers the rest of the sailing.

    I hope that helps give you a bit more insight into what awaits your new graduate, Barbara! Happy planning!
