It's a Small World Nursery— located on Deck 5, Midship aboard the Disney Fantasy—is a delightful daycare center for children three years and under, whose whimsical design was inspired by the classic Disneyland attraction. This nursery is available at an additional charge.

Open throughout the day, It's a Small World Nursery invites parents to enjoy more adult-oriented adventures during the cruise while their children are safely cared for by trained Disney counselors.

Inspired by the classic Disneyland attraction—"it's a small world"—this nursery provides a relaxing atmosphere that infants and toddlers are sure to enjoy. The nursery's décor is a stylized patchwork of colorful shapes associated with the attraction that Disney Legend animator Mary Blair designed.

The facility consists of 3 distinct areas:

  • An acclimation zone, designed to help youngsters adjust to the nursery
  • A main play area, with a 3-dimensional façade of the small world attraction that's filled with interactive features and hidden delights
  • A separate room for naps that is quiet and peaceful


The main play area also includes kid-sized tables and chairs where toddlers can enjoy crafts, books and games are also present.

Activities at It's a Small World Nursery are unscheduled and vary depending on the mood of your child. However, with programs like movie time, story time and nap time, counselors are sure to keep your children grinning from ear to ear.
