Imagine setting sail on a magical journey with your six-month-old baby aboard Disney Cruise Line. Our guest, Alex from the blog Second Dad to the Right, did just that and he’s here to share his experiences and top tips for cruising with a tyke in tow. From early dinner seatings to comprehensive childcare options, he unveils the secret strategies that make a Disney cruise with a baby a smooth sailing experience.

Dive into the colorful world of Disney’s unique accommodations for babies – how about pureed gourmet meals from the menu or a personal visit from Mickey Mouse? We also delve into the wonders of the ocean air kids club, the intriguing reason why babies aren’t allowed in the ship pools and the joy of splash pads. And wait till you hear about the hilarious and memorable Jack Jack’s Diaper Dash experience!

Finally, we tackle the practical side of cruising with family. Alex provides insider knowledge on booking roomy state rooms, extra amenities provided, and the convenience of room service. He also shares the advantage of a veranda for keeping an eye on a sleeping baby and the option of split rooms for extra space and privacy. As a grand finale, get ready to giggle as we recount Alex’s son Asher’s ‘April Fools’ Unibrow’ family picture story. So, hoist your sails and join us on this rollicking DCL cruise journey!”
