I emailed DCL about their new tween area aboard the Dream. I have a daughter who is 11, in 5th grade, but very uncomfortable with new situations. On our Wonder cruise, she did not go to the kids club at all, even with coaxing from the counselors. Afterwards she regretting not trying out, so was all set to try it out this next cruise..... til.... she found out she is 11 and would not have a pager and they now have a tween club. I was hoping to maybe sneak just an hour of mommy time to maybe go to Palo. So I emailed DCL to ask if she could go to the 10 and under club with her very social to be 9 year old sister. This is my response. Dear Amy, Thank you for choosing another Disney Cruise Line vacation! I would be happy to assist you. The youth activities onboard have been designed for children to participate in age appropriate groups, which allow them to interact both socially and comfortably with peers of their own age and size. However, we realize that a parent may want the child to participate in a different age group. Once on the ship please meet with one of the Youth Counselors to discuss your request. This will give you the opportunity to discuss which area of the youth activities will be best for you and Mattisyn and Mackenzey. Please be assured, there will be adequate space in whichever group is assigned. Mattisyn does not have to be registered with Youth Activities to participate in the Edge activities; however, the counselors will check to make sure they are the correct age for the location. Also, you will not need to register her for the Disney's Oceaneer Club/Disney's Oceaneer Lab prior to boarding. I hope this information has been helpful. Should you require further assistance in planning your visit, please contact your travel agent. We look forward to sailing with you! Have a Magical Day! So by that I am taking she will be able to go to the 10 and under club? as I can't see her going to the Edge(she has already said she won't try the Edge). she is in the 5th grade and most of the kids in her class are just 10, she just missed the cut off with school, so she is one of the oldest. any opinions? thanks.
