Nemo's Reef on the Disney Dream is a whimsical water play area designed for children. It is located on Deck 11, Midship, adjacent to Mickey's Pool. Featuring fountains, bubblers and pop jets, this fun-filled splash deck stars some of your favorite characters from the hit Disney•Pixar movie, Finding Nemo.
Nemo's Reef is where children 8 years of age and younger can splash around, cool off and make new friends with other kids their own age. Based on Finding Nemo, this 1,500-square-foot venue features character figures from the hit film that move and spray water in a variety of unique ways. In addition to Nemo, Dory and Marlin, this splashy spot includes a mini-sized water slide shaped like Mr. Ray, a water curtain that moves back and forth mimicking the East Australian Current, and Pearl the octopus who "inks" herself with a mist of water.
Nemo's Reef is surrounded by a glass enclosure, with a main Guest entrance and a wheelchair-accessible entrance. The area is also shaded for protection from the sun and features a soft wet deck surface for safety and comfort.
Young Children at Nemo's Reef
The United States Public Health Service requires that only children who are toilet trained are permitted to enter swimming pools and spas aboard cruise ships.
Children who are not toilet trained are welcome to enjoy Nemo's Reef and Mickey's Splash Zone, where they must wear swim diapers. Please note, swim diapers are not permitted in the pools, hot tubs or spas, the AquaDuck and the AquaLab.
Coast Guard personal flotation devices (PFDs), water wings and flotation sewn into bathing suits can be brought onboard and are permitted in Mickey's Pool. However, floats, rafts and fun noodles cannot be brought onboard and are not permitted in the pools.
As a courtesy, complimentary pool vests are now available on the pool decks aboard all ships. These vests can only be worn by children in the swimming pools to help with flotation, and must not be taken ashore at ports of call, including Castaway Cay. Please note that pool vests are not a substitute for the lifejackets located in Guest staterooms, nor are they a substitution for adult supervision.
Please note that snorkel equipment and swim goggles are not permitted in pools, hot tubs or water-play areas.
