Taking Infants & Toddlers (Disney Magic and Wonder)
Disney Cruise Line is very geared towards catering for infants and toddlers onboard - it is Disney after all!
Beginning March 15, 2009, families preparing to sail on Disney Cruise Line with little ones will have access to an online service that allows them to order baby supplies in advance of their cruise and have them delivered to their stateroom. The new service is exclusive for Disney Cruise Line guests and provided by Babies Travel Lite, an online retailer offering more than 1,000 brand-name baby products including diapers, baby food, infant formula and specialty travel items.
By visiting disneycruise.com, guests will be able to access a special section of the Babies Travel Lite Web site where they can create orders for familiar brands in quantities customized to the duration of their cruise.
Flounders Reef Nursery
The onboard nursery can look after babies and children aged from 3 months to 3 years. Trained counselors entertain children with a variety of toys, books, videos, crafts and games.
Flounder's Reef Nursery is open select hours every day during the cruise, allowing parents to explore adventures ashore or enjoy adult-only areas onboard the ship.
Guests sailing on seven-night cruises can enjoy some ‘together’ time with their little ones during Family Time Sessions at Flounder’s Reef Nursery. Families have the opportunity to explore the nursery and meet the team of counselors who supervise the children.
Also on seven-night cruises, guests can enjoy Toddler Time at the Oceaneer Club and at Mickey’s Splash Zone. Families can join their little ones and explore the world together as they participate in musical games and fine motor skills exercises led by Disney’s youth activities counselors.

Infants and toddlers who are still in diapers are not permitted to use the main swimming pools. However, they are free to use the special area for infants and toddlers - Mickey’s Splash Zone, a water playground inspired by The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Disney’s “Fantasia.” This extension to the Mickey Pool features star- and moon-shaped interactive fountains, a soft play surface and whimsical splash zones, creating an inviting environment for children not yet toilet trained and in swim diapers.
