There is a new price increase for Disney Cruises Nurseries. Child care for 3 and over is free on Disney cruises but there is an extra charge for nursery facilities on Disney cruises for younger children. The Disney cruise nurseries on each ship take babies and children aged from 3 months old to 3 years.
The new charges for Flouder’s Reef on The Disney Wonder, It’s A Small World on the Disney Magic, Dream and Fantasy are:
$9 per hour for first child
$8 per hour for second child
The previous prices were $6 for the first child and $5 per hour for the second, so this is a big percentage increase.
This change comes shortly after the Disney Castaway Cay Cabanas Price Increase as well as other price increases for excursions and rentals on Castaway Cay.
These prices increases for Disney cruise nurseries come into effect on January 31st on the Disney Magic, February 1st 2014 on the Disney Dream and February 2nd on the Disney Wonder and Disney Fantasy.
Guests who have already pre booked nursery time on a Disney cruise will still be charged at the lower rate.
You can still make cancellations up to 4 hours before the reservation is due to start without paying a penalty. Space is limited so if you have a child under 3 and you are sailing on a Disney cruise you will want to make reservations before you sail.
Here is the booking schedule for online reservations in advance of your Disney cruise sailing:
120 days in advance for Concierge and Platinum Castaway Club Guests
105 days in advance for Gold Castaway Club Guests
90 days in advance for Silver Castaway Club Guests
75 days in advance for First Time Disney Cruisers
