It's a Small World Nursery—located on Deck 5, Aft aboard the Disney Magic—is a nursery for children under three years, whose joyful, fanciful design is inspired by the classic Disney park attraction.

Available at an additional charge, It's a Small World Nursery lets adults take part in more grown-up adventures on and off the ship while their children are safely cared for by trained Disney counselors. Operating hours may vary while in port, so please check the Personal Navigator—the Disney Cruise Line daily newsletter detailing all there is to see and do—once onboard.

Reminiscent of the classic Disney theme park attraction "it's a small world," the nursery's décor is a stylized patchwork of colorful shapes from the "it's a small world" attraction that Disney Legend animator Mary Blair designed, providing a colorful and soothing environment that infants and toddlers are sure to enjoy.

It's a Small World Nursery is made up of 3 distinct areas:

  • An acclimation zone, designed to help youngsters adjust to the nursery
  • A main play area with a soft surface floor surrounded by colorful, kid-sized tables and chairs for toddlers to enjoy crafts, books and games, plus a 3-dimensional façade of the "it's a small world" attraction filled with hidden, interactive delights
  • A separate room for naps that is quiet and peaceful


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 craft projects, counselors are sure to keep your children grinning from ear to ear.

It's a Small World Nursery is available at an additional charge and must be reserved in advance. If you've already booked your Disney cruise, simply log in and retrieve your reservation to find out when you can begin making reservations in My Cruise Activities.
