Has anyone else been following Chase's amazing fight and recovery. He is quite a little boy. Captain America, they call him.

We have a 3 year old son. I saw a couple of other 3 year olds too!
Those of you with young kids...do you plan on using the kid programs? Last year I just kept him with us the whole time.

We definitely plan on using the kids program (ours are 4 & 6). That was how I convinced my husband to take the cruise--time for us as a family and time alone as a couple. This is our first cruise, so we'll see how it goes. Our kids are very social (the opposite of DH and me), so I think (hope) they'll enjoy it.

Considering the sad news of what just happened on a Carnival ship, this is some relief. Parents still need to watch their kiddos at all times though.

I do follow his story. What an amazing little boy! I admire his strength as well as his family's!

Yes! My kiddos (10 and 6) LOVE the Club/Lab! My oldest spent most of her time there (and in the pool) when we were on the Fantasy last fall. My youngest is a little on the shy side, so she was nervous about going last year, but quickly warmed up and enjoyed all the activities! They have been talking about their favorites and can't wait for the club on the Magic. Of course, we spend time together as a family each day.

We always look through the Navigators together and see what activities are "must dos" for them at the club and we make sure they are there. A lot of times there are multiple things going on at the same time that they want to do and they have to make a choice. There are times when DH and I have adult time planned and the kids know that they have to go to the club. They've never complained.

Even though DCL is a little more expensive than other cruise lines, their kids club can't be beat and that is usually the deciding factor for us.

Disney's kids clubs are beyond compare! There are the best I have encountered and they do a phenomenal job with kids of all ages.

One thing I just discovered were these "fish extenders". How cool is that? Does anyone have more information and is anyone planning on doing this?

We joined too late as well to be part of the FE group this time, but I was going to do a couple of treats for my kids to put in for them. I am sure I will have a few extras and will spread the magic where we can.
