Hey there, Disney Cruise fans! Are you ready for some news that will impact your next family adventure on the high seas?

Whether you’re planning your first Disney cruise or you’re a seasoned sailor, these changes are sure to impact your experience!

What’s New with Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Lab?

Disney is always listening to feedback from their guests, and they’ve made some adjustments to the age ranges for their youth spaces. This is news for families with kids who want to make the most out of their cruise experience.

Starting from sailings that depart on or after December 21, 2023, Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Disney’s Oceaneer Lab will have a revised age range. Previously catering to kids aged 3 to 12, these clubs will now be exclusively for little sailors aged 3 to 10. Additionally, they’re introducing specially guided activities for the tiny cruisers aged 3-4 years old. Imagine the fun and learning your little ones will have!

Edge: The Perfect Spot for Tweens

But what about the tweens, you ask? Well, Disney has thought of that too! Children aged 11 and 12 can now join the fun at Edge. This space, which continues to welcome kids aged 11 to 14, is the perfect hangout spot for tweens. It’s a place where they can meet new friends, enjoy activities tailored just for them, and have a blast away from the younger crowd.

Vibe: A Haven for Teens

And let’s not forget the teenagers! Vibe remains the go-to spot for guests aged 14 to 17. It’s a unique area where teens can connect, chill, and enjoy activities designed just for them. It’s the perfect balance of independence and fun, tailored to the tastes of today’s teens.

Why These Changes Matter

These updates to the Disney Cruise Youth Clubs are more than just a shift in age brackets. They’re about creating spaces where kids and teens can thrive, make new friends, and enjoy activities that are just right for their age group. Disney Cruise Line is committed to ensuring that every family member has an unforgettable experience, and these changes are a big step in that direction.

So, whether your child is a curious toddler, an energetic tween, or a cool teen, there’s a special place for them on a Disney cruise. Get ready for an adventure where every family member finds their own slice of magic!

Remember, these changes kick in for sailings departing on or after December 21, 2023. So, if you’re planning a Disney cruise, it’s the perfect time to become familiar with these changes to the youth clubs. Bon voyage, and get ready for an unforgettable journey with Disney Cruise Line!
