Three Generations Aboard Ship

    Kris from MI Asked

    I have 3 dd's, will be 11, 8, 3 at time of cruise. I'm wondering if I should bring a stroller. Also wondering about the kid's clubs. My kids are a little shy, don't know if they will go. Should I still sign them up and do I have to know times when I do?

    Welcome Aboard, Kris!
    Looks like you'll be traveling with a gaggle of little princesses soon - what fun! What great ages to enjoy the magic of a Disney Cruise Line vacation - there are so many fun activities and experiences just for them!

    When cruising with a preschooler, a stroller sure can come in handy! Umbrella strollers are easiest to navigate around the ship, and fold easily for storage in your stateroom. My daughter was two on our first cruise, and we were so glad we brought a stroller with us. She was able to rest in the stroller while we waited to meet characters, and it was also super-handy when we disembarked to explore the ports.

    The Youth Clubs onboard are fantastic, magical areas where kids can play, learn, and interact with kids their age. The good news for you is that all of your girls fall into the age range for the Oceaneer Club, so (as long as your littlest cruiser is potty-trained) they can all  hang out together!

    The Youth Counselors are incredible, and can make even the shyest little buccaneers feel welcome and comfortable. You won't have to schedule specific times for them to visit the clubs - they're welcome any time the club is open during your cruise (typically 9am-midnight). I encourage you to visit the club with them on your first afternoon onboard for an Open House - a great time to meet the counselors and see the awesome space! Each day, you'll receive a Personal Navigator - a detailed schedule of activities happening throughout the day. You'll be able to easily see what's happening in the Oceaneer Club/Lab, so your daughters won't miss a fun activity!

    Hope this helps! Wishing you and your princesses a magical Disney Cruise vacation! - Diane W.
