We are going on a Disney Dream cruise October 29, and in our family we have a 22 month old girl who IS POTTY TRAINED... Will I need a doctors note stating that she is potty trained in order for her to swim in the pools? wanting to be prepared. Thank you

Congratulations on your upcoming cruise on the Disney Dream -- she is a spectacular ship!
The United States Public Health Service requires that only children who
are toilet trained be permitted to enter swimming pools and spas onboard
cruise ships. Young children who are not toilet trained are welcome to
enjoy the fountain play areas. They are designed exclusively for the
enjoyment of children wearing swim diapers.
However, if the child who is traveling with you is completely bathroom trained, I am assuming she will not be wearing a swim diaper. Therefore, she is welcome to enjoy the pools and spas. You will not need any documentation. My daughter also was trained early, and I always felt like I needed to reassure other pool patrons that she knew not to "go" in the pool. I did get a few funny looks so I would just offer up that she was trained before anyone asked.
Let me know if you think of more questions before you sail. I included a video about the kids spaces for your information. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.
