Best Way to Register Kids for Clubs?

We have always registered our kids ahead of time and gotten them checked in/gotten Mickey Bands at Port Canaveral before boarding. We're cruising in a few months from Miami, and are wondering the best way to get the kids registered for the kids clubs. This cruise we don't have OUR kids in our cabin - we're cruising with 2 other families and have one child from each family in our cabin, and one of ours in each of theirs (to maximize discounts). We'll switch the kids around once we board. Does it make better sense to just wait to register the kids for the Club/Lab until after we've done this onboard? What time does the club open for registration on embarkation day? Is it a pain to handle onboard instead of in port before boarding?

I've done both and found it much easier and quicker to register them onboard at the clubs. There is no line and its the exact same as standing in line at the terminal.

Unless you are standing around in the terminal with nothing to do (waiting to be called for boarding), it is easier to wait and do it on board.
