Infant Amenities on Disney Cruises
Disney Cruises offers several infant-friendly amenities. Among these:
In-Room Baby Supplies
You can borrow a complimentary stroller from the Guest Services desk on the ship. Meanwhile, your Stateroom Host will be happy to provide diaper disposal bins, a playpen / pack-n-play, and bottle sterilizers / warmers for the room. When it’s time for bed, your Stateroom Host is also able to set up a crib or bed rails during your nightly turndown service.
Freshly-Made Baby Food
There’s no need to find space for tons of baby food in your bags when you’re packing for your Disney cruise. The onboard galley kitchens are happy to puree fresh vegetables for your infant to eat.
This service is primarily provided in the main dining rooms, so it may not be available at some quick-service locations you visit. But don’t worry — you can always get it through room service, which is available 24 hours a day and is included in the cost of your cruise.
One further note for meal time: complimentary high chairs are available at all restaurants on the ship. If you don’t see them, just ask!
Fun in the Sun
Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay, offers another way to make traveling with an infant easier: you can borrow a complimentary wagon to make it easier to get your little one around to everything there is to do on Castaway Cay. It’s SO much easier than trying to plow those sandy beaches with narrow stroller wheels!
Upon boarding, be sure to check and make sure that an infant life jacket has been provided inside your stateroom — if not, let your Stateroom Host know right away!
Buy Last-Minute Needs Onboard
Don’t fret over whether you’ve remembered everything — or worry that you’ll suddenly run out of an essential item. You can buy most of the basics onboard the ship if needed — diapers and pull-ups, rash cream, formula / bottles / baby food, pacifiers, and toiletries such as baby shampoo / lotion / powder.
Disney Cruises Activities for Infants
While you might be disappointed to have to pay a fare for infants on your cruise, you’ll be pleased to know that you get access to a number of special amenities for infants and toddlers.
Each of Disney’s Cruise ships offer a water play area that’s made especially for the tiniest cruisers. Toddlers do not need to be toilet-trained, but swim diapers are required.
You’ll find Nephews’ Splash Zone on the Disney Magic, Dory’s Reef on the Disney Wonder, Nemo’s Reef on the the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, and Toy Story Splash Zone on the Disney Wish.
Worried about safety? You’ll be comforted to know that Disney Cruises have lifeguards on duty.
The character meet-and-greet is one of the best parts of sailing on a Disney Cruise Line. It is a magical moment that all ages will enjoy.
While some character meet-and-greets are available to all, others take place on a more private basis. The characters present are different for each ship and cruise. Your little one might not remember meeting the Disney characters, but photographs of the event will last forever.
Deck Parties and Live Entertainment
There’s always something going on onboard, from dancing deck parties to live shows. And while not everything might be ideally suited to a young infant (you know best whether your child gets fussy in a theater setting or just takes a nap), you’ll usually find something to keep them entertained.
