Disney Cruise Line Kids Clubs

Disney Cruise Line offers complimentary, themed kids’ clubs filled with Disney activities and entertainment. 

And they offer some of the longest operating hours at sea.

Disney offers special programs for babies/toddlers, kids (3-12), tweens and teens.


 Each program is  designed to engage the specific age groups.

Each Disney ship offers a nursery with whimsical play areas, for children 3 months – 3 years, that are watched over by caregivers (additional fee for this age group).  The space is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot after your final payment, before you leave for your cruise.

Some more great new for little cruisers is that baby supplies can be ordered ahead of time to be delivered to your cabin.  Items like Diaper Genies, cribs, playpens, bottle warmers, sterilizers and strollers.   And do you know what?

They are free.

Holy Moly Mickey Mouse!  That means less packing for you!

Inside your stateroom you will find an additional perk worth mentioning: two Wave Phones.  

Wave Phones are a  Disney Cruise Line signature service that allows you to call and text both onboard and at Disney’s Castaway Cay (their private island).

While aboard the ship and on Castaway Cay, reach out to your fellow travelers via Wave Phone, offering extra peace of mind.  This allows you to text and call without using your personal cell phone. From your Wave Phone, you can call any shipboard phone, stateroom phone or other Wave Phone, making it easy to connect with your travel party or new friends.

Now, let’s breakdown the Youth Programs aboard Disney Cruise Ships.

Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab is for kids 3-12 years old and is designed with spaces just for them.   Kids activities are designed to be as flexible as possible so your child can join in on what interests them the most.

Choose from 6 activity tracks that appeal to different interests.  Things like:

  • Piston Cup Challenge – Drivers build and race cars using bars of soap, ensuring lots of good, clean fun.

The Edge club (for tweens ages 11-14) and Vibe (for teens ages 14-17) lets kids sail with some of the coolest counselors around in separate, private spaces designed just for them.  They will find music, video games, big screen TVs, cool lounge areas, onboard social intranet site, and loads of fun like:
