Disney appears to be dropping reservations for kids clubs. They have quietly updated the know before you go Youth Activities section on the website.
Children can find something to love at larger-than-life, whimsically themed kids clubs, thanks to a near endless range of activities, games and surprises with enhanced health and safety measures.
Dropping Off/Picking Up
Only one parent or guardian at a time can drop off or pick up kids at Disney’s Oceaneer Lab and Disney’s Oceaneer Club. In addition, parents are not allowed to enter the youth clubs when dropping off and picking up children.
Guests under 5 years of age who are currently ineligible to be vaccinated are required to bring and wear appropriate face coverings at all times while inside Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Disney’s Oceaneer Lab.
All children will be required to wash their hands upon entering and exiting the youth clubs.
With a focus on high-touch surfaces, youth clubs will be cleaned more frequently and surfaces will be sprayed with a non-toxic disinfecting mist each night.
Teen and Tween Clubs
Both Vibe for teens and Edge for tweens are open.
“it’s a small world” nursery!” is temporarily unavailable.
Before this update you were only able to book one 2.5 hour time slot for kids in the clubs. This change seems to be happening the same day masks are no longer required indoors on a Disney ship.
UPDATE** there are reports from recent cruisers that unvaccinated children under the age of 5 still need reservations. This group of kids is separated from the over 5’s vaccinated kids.
