Traveling on Disney Cruise Line with MouseEarVacations
Disney Cruise Line - it's a small world Nursery

You need a vacation, but you have very young children and want everyone to enjoy it (including you.) The perfect vacation is on the Disney Dream! Everyone knows that Disney is "all about families" and families range from babies to centenarians.
It's a Small World Nursery on the Disney Dream cares for children ages three months to three years old. Trained counselors are provided for infants under one, with a supply of cribs and other baby equipment. Upon request the counselors will follow your nap or bedtime schedule. When you arrive to pick up a sleeping child, they provide special strollers to walk your baby back to your stateroom.
It's a Small World Nursery is open from 9am to 1am (except on embarkation day the hours are 5pm to 1pm). The rates are very reasonable at $6 an hour per child. You will have peace of mind knowing they can reach you anytime with a communication device - if they have any problems they will call you, and you may call and check in at any time.
The older toddlers have free play time on the soft-surface floor with plenty of interactive features such as horns, boats, and wheels that turn. Along with singing, arts and crafts, DVDs (such as Baby Einstein and Mickey Mouse Club House), plenty of other toys are available including books and games.
You may bring food with feeding instructions. The only restrictions are NO PEANUT products (as many children have severe peanut allergies), and no foods that must be kept warm.
You will feel comfortable leaving your little ones knowing they are receiving the best care while you are pampered at the spa, or relax at the adult pool. In the evening enjoy a quiet romantic dinner at Palo or Remy. For a livelier atmosphere, visit The District, an adults-only area with various lounges, dancing, shows, and games.
No need to haul all that baby equipment with you, Disney provides complimentary Diaper Genies, cribs, play pens, bottle warmers, sterilizers and strollers. Rather than drag boxes of diapers and other baby needs, they may be ordered ahead and delivered to your cabin. Your MouseEarVacations.com Travel Specialist will be happy to help you with this.
If you have older children, they have special clubs (at no charge) for other age groups. Oceaneer Club/Lab (ages 3-10): Edge for the Tweens; and Vibe is the Teens Club. Only problem - kids tend to love it so much, they don't want to leave!
It's time to take a family vacation that everyone will enjoy! There is plenty to do for all ages!
