The nursery is open from 9:00 a.m. to midnight and offers an age-appropriate playroom, a quiet area with cribs, rocking chairs and swings.)
Disney Oceaneer Club (for kids 3-12 yo; open 9 am - 12 pm, 4 play areas with themes from different Disney films – Andy’s Room/”Toy Story”, Monsters Academy/”Monsters, Inc”, Pixie Hollow/”Tinkerbell”, and Explorer Pod/”Nemo”; has computers, video games, TV screens, 1 huge screen for movies, napping mats. In the Infinity section kids will find ten gaming stations, each with 2 controllers. The life-size Infinity gaming station is where guests become the game pieces and can control the outcome of the competition with body movements. Children work in teams of 2 to rack up points and beat the highest scores. The Star Wars play area is Millennium Falcon-themed and features a replica of the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon, complete with 2 chairs where children sit to "fly" the aircraft via simulations. The control room has many lights, buttons and levers. A likeness of Falcon's common room, situated to the right, serves as a seating area. Parents can visit the Oceaneer during select hours.)
Disney Oceaneer Lab (kids 3-12 yo play area for games, experiments, culinary classes and other interactive stuff; has a stage; themed rooms here are: “Media Room”/movies, video games, reading; “Animator’s Studio”/animation studio for creating characters and art; “The Wheelhouse”/computers, 1 huge plasma screen; “Sound Studio”/recording studio; and “Craft Studio”/hand-made arts and crafts. The Oceaneer Club and Lab are connected so kids can easily go back and forth, thus doubling their space at any given time. Though Club activities appeal to younger children and Lab for older ones, Disney's approach of allowing access both clubs means siblings can hang out together and all kids can pursue their interests.)
NOTE: all kids enrolled in the Oceaneer Club/Lab and the nursery, for which they have to sign in and out with a wristband, will be charged US$12.95 for the band. When it is returned at the end of the voyage, the charge is removed.
