- Andy’s Room: Your kids will feel like a toy in this mega-sized play area.
- Pixie Hollow: Inspired by Tinker Bell and her friends, this is the imagination hub with stations for dress up, creative play and arts and crafts.
- MARVEL’s Avengers Academy: Super heros-in-training assemble! Your kids may even get the chance to meet an Avenger!
- Mickey Mouse Club: Wacky play spaces and ear shaped tables that even adults will love.
Parents should know that the Oceaneer Club and Lab are connected by a secure “secret” hallway. Children can safely move between the two areas to participate in programming in each space.

Did you know that modern ships only need one smokestack? Then why do the Disney ships have two? On the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder, the Forward Smokestack isn’t a smokestack at all. It is home to Vibe, the teens-only hangout for kids 14 to 17. (On the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, it is home to Edge.)
No matter which kids club your kids experience, they will have a magical time!
