Can parents stay with children in the kids clubs on the cruise? I want her to experience it but don't want to leave her without knowing anyone (she's 5) in the kids club area. Thanks

Hi, again, LaShawna!
You are welcome to accompany your child in Disney's Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab -- especially during the Open House on Embarkation Day and during designated family times (indicated on the daily Personal Navigator/newsletter). However, you may find that after spending time with your daughter in the youth spaces during these times -- you may be "slowing her down" by hanging around. Remember, most every kid comes on board without a friend but makes countless ones by the end of the journey through the imaginative and interactive spaces, activities and amazing counselors in these areas.
My encouragement to you is to escort her in and introduce her to one or two of the counselors she can identify each time she's in there and who can introduce her to other girls her age. Before you know it, she'll be playing dress up or games, singing songs and dancing to tunes and making crafts with children and counselors she'll adore by the end of the voyage together. I speak from first-hand experience!
I hope that your vacation is absolutely magical and meets and exceeds your expectations. It's been a pleasure helping you plan. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
