Dining at Disney's Oceaneer Lab

Children can enjoy lunch and dinner at Disney's Oceaneer Lab—a pleasant convenience for parents looking for some alone time at Cadillac Lounge or WaveBands. For those not wishing to dine with us, activities will be available during meal times.

Registration and Check-In

Registering your child for Disney's Oceaneer Lab can be made at the terminal or once onboard the ship.

Upon boarding the ship on Embarkation Day, both children and parents must check in at the front desk at Disney's Oceaneer Lab on Deck 5, Midship. During this confirmation process, parents will fill out final paperwork and children will receive a wristband indicating that they are part of Disney's Oceaneer Lab. Only children that are ages three through twelve and completely toilet trained will be able to participate in secured programming.

During the registration process, parents are invited to tour the facility, meet the counselors and learn more about the many activities offered.

Children with Special Needs

Children with special needs are welcome at Disney's Oceaneer Lab. While we cannot offer one on one care for your child, families are encouraged to speak with our Special Services team pre-arrival to discuss any questions or clarify participation guidelines.

Activities at Disney's Oceaneer Lab
Children are invited to partake in a wide range of delightfully themed activities available at Disney's Oceaneer Lab. While some activities are recommended for certain age ranges, participation is based on a child's interest level and maturity—not age. As a result of this, siblings and friends ages 3-12 can play together without restriction.

Although subject to change, activities at Disney's Oceaneer Lab may include:

  • Ratatouille Cooking School
    Join a specially trained cookie chef, and learn how to make chocolate chip cookies fit for Remy himself. Have fun helping friends, adding lots of different ingredients and, in the end, creating your very own cookies straight from the Ratatouille restaurant magic oven.
  • Animation Antics
    Kids explore the history of animation and learn animator secrets as they draw one of their favorite Disney characters and create their own flipbook to take home.
  • Stitch's Great Adventure
    Help Stitch as he tries to capture Dr. Jumba's experiments that were set loose in the Oceaneer Lab before they cause all sorts of trouble!
  • Piston Cup Challenge
    Drivers run a clean race as they build race cars using bars of soap, ensuring good clean fun and lots of laughs for all.


Check the Personal Navigator for specific dates and times of these—and all—activities while onboard.

Parents should note that children have the ability to move back and forth between Disney's Oceaneer Club and Disney's Oceaneer Lab during operating hours to experience activities. Youth activities counselors will be on hand to direct children.

"Youth Activities Open House"
Open House is an opportunity for all guests to come and participate in a variety of exciting activities in the Oceaneer Club and Lab throughout the cruise. During these times the Oceaneer Club or Oceaneer Lab will still be available for those looking to check their children into care.

Fun Facts & Tips

Kids 8 to 12 years of age can check themselves in and out of Disney's Oceaneer Lab—at their parents' discretion.

You can "Meet Your Counselors" on the large wall boards at Disney's Oceaneer Lab. Each counselor has his or her very own picture for you to see!
