Disney Cruise Line has different spaces for all age groups. I’ll start out with Disney-themed activity centers where kids of all ages can participate in activities that capture their interests, Such as:

It’s a Small World Nursery-

 Ages 3 month – 3 years can enjoy a world inspired by the classic Disney theme park attraction and original artwork by Disney Legend Mary Blair, it operates till 1am & even has a door parents can sneak a peek at their child secretly (one way mirrored door) the nursery is located on the Dream & Fantasy or Flounders Reef Nursery– a mermaid themed nursery located on the Magic & Wonder (small fee required & advance ressies encouraged)

Disney’s Oceaneer Club-

It’s open to 3- to 10-year-old children. Before entering the kids first wash their hands in this real neat hand washer that actually drops the soap on their hands with water, they also have a “magic play floor” that interacts when they dance & when cast members story tell, so many hi-tech gadgets. (I want to be a kid again, so jelly)

  • EDGE for tweens & VIBE for teens
  • Character Greetings let kids come face-to-face with classic and contemporary Disney Characters.
  • Chill Spa  aboard the Disney Dream is a rejuvenating spa offering special     services—including facials, body treatments, manicures and more—designed for teens only.
  • Camp Out on the MAGIC & Pirates League so many things to choose from onboard all the ships. 

Families can enjoy these activities together or separate:

  • Arcade
  • Live Shows include original, Broadway-quality Disney musicals performed exclusively at the Walt Disney Theatre, starring some of your favorite Disney Characters daily. Like “Disney’s Believe” on Dream/Fantasy or Disney’s Aladdin—A Musical Spectacular.
  • Movies are shown in the nostalgic Buena Vista Theatre; some screened in Disney Digital 3-D—and on the jumbo television screen above Goofy’s Pool or Donald’s Pool.
  • Pools include the family-friendly Goofy’s Pool and Donald’s Pool, as well as Mickey’s Pool which features a twisting slide
  • Aquaduct– transparent tube water coaster located at Deck 12, Aft aboard the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy, definitely a family fun place to enjoy.
  • Disney Cruise Line deck parties are open-air music and dance extravaganzas they have a Sail-Away Celebration & Pirate Night deck party also exclusively on Alaskan Cruises aboard the Disney Wonder they have a Pixar Pals Party- musical meet-and-greet extravaganza starring some of your favorite friends from the Disney·Pixar films.

Couples or Adults can enjoy:

  • Senses Spa & Salon
  • Relax in the adult pool areas like Quiet Cove Pool or Satellite Falls
  • Nightclubs- with live music, sports bars, dance parties and karaoke at venues that cater exclusively to adults when the sun sets. Meridian & Pink, O’Gills Pub
  • You have exclusive adult dining options like Remy on Disney Dream/ Fantasy or Palo on all four Disney Cruise Ships
