We just signed on for the cruise! This will our first Disney Cruise so we are super excited but keeping it a secret from the kiddos. We signed up for the FE with Becca and ordered our extender. My husband thinks I'm crazy but I enjoy all things Disney.

Oceaneer's Club Question

I know during Open House hours the kids ages 3-12 are combined into one of the clubs, but does anyone know during regular hours what ages I can expect to be in the club with my just turned 3 year old?

Also, do you know if they counselors try to keep the really young ones separated in different area with different activities?

Thanks!

My guess is it's one big club with activities divided by age. If you look at the navigators from past trips you'll see some activities have age recommendations.

Cruise Ship Calendar

Just checked the cruise ship calendar for our cruise and looks like we are the only ship in all ports except for Key West. That day Majesty of the Seas will be in port with us. I noticed on the webcam the last time the Magic was in port with another ship in Key West, the other ship was docked in front.

The Magic will be back in Galveston tomorrow...I think we may have to watch her sail through the harbor again tomorrow afternoon. We are getting so excited about this trip (less than 2 months now), but I have to get on the ball about FE gifts before I run out of time!

Excitment Building

We are a family of 4 also going in May. I cannot wait!!

THe ports are great, but honestly I have read so much negativity about Key West. Who knows, maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks!
The following is a reply I got back from Disney Mom's to my questions about the Kid's Club:

"On the Disney Magic, the Oceaneer Club is the youth area geared towards the littlest sailors age three to seven. Older cruisers (up to 12) can also be checked in, but most eight and over spend time in the Oceaneer Lab. Each day you will receive your cruise newsletter, the Personal Navigator, which will list all the planned programming for these spaces. I'm sure your daughter will enjoy activities like parachute games, Captain's Closet Dress-Up Fun, Play Doh Creations, crafts, Pluto's PJ Party, and Do Si Do with Snow White. The trained youth counselors do a great job of keeping the kids engaged and involved in these types of events. "

Magic is just pulling out of the port on the webcam. Looks like a beautiful sail away. Hope ours is as great!

Galveston Cruise Webcam

The Magic is back in Galveston this morning. I had this idea & decided to send co-workers a meeting invite for Friday 5/10 @ 4:30pm with the link to the Webcam...meeting says you are invited to watch me sail away on the Disney Magic. Geeky I know, but I fun!
