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. Both the Oceaneer Club and Lab feature interactive Magic PlayFloors. These electronic wonders are 20 by 20 feet and are used for storytelling sessions and games. Daytime activities include Magic PlayFloor time, science experiments, scavenger hunts. Nighttime activities, free for all kids, include pirate-themed events and pajama parties.
