Disney Cruise Line’s Edge is a hangout and play space for guests ages 11 to 14. The age range for Edge overlaps with that of Vibe (ages 14-17). Families with 14-year-old children may choose Edge or Vibe. Once you select a club, you must stick with it for the duration of your sailing. A family might choose one club or another due to the child’s maturity or temperament or because they are sailing with siblings/cousins/friends that are restricted to one age group or the other.

Hours at Edge vary depending on the ship’s location each day, with longer open hours occurring on sea days and shorter hours on port days. At a minimum, you’ll find Edge available from at least 10:00 a.m. until midnight. Kids registered in Edge may come and go as they please; there is no need for a parent to sign them in or out.

Adults who want to see what happens in the club may visit during Open House hours. Check the onboard DCL Navigator app for open times during your sailing.

The Edge club always has board games, craft projects, video games, and books available. Scheduled organized activities might include trivia games, mini talent shows, scavenger hunts, movies, visits to the theaters or Hero Zone, drawing classes, card tournaments, and more.

There is an Edge on each of DCL’s five ships. This is a photo tour of the version on the Wish, Disney’s newest vessel. On the Wish, Edge is located on Deck 5, aft. The entrance is to the left as you’re facing the Enchanted Sword Café.

The decor in the Wish Edge is eclectic, with seating of various shapes, sizes, and colors.

The center area of the room includes a bar for serving soda or smoothies. (Refreshments may not be available or permitted during the COVID era.)

The shelves are filled with “flair” that will seem old-timey to today’s tweens. You know, ancient stuff like land-line telephones, Polaroid cameras, typewriters, and Vinylmations.

A particularly welcome addition to this version of Edge is the library of real books that can be pulled off the shelves and read – as opposed to decorative books that are glued down and only for show.

  • what’s the Edge on the Disney Wonder like?? My 11 year old is wondering as she also wants to try out the Oceaneers.

    • Hi Emma,

      Since the Wonder is a smaller ship, with fewer passengers, than the Wish, the space allotted to the Wonder’s Edge is smaller. The decor has a more nautical feel. The activities in the youth clubs are quite similar across all the Disney ships. The cast member counselors are all trained the same and often rotate among the ships, so you’ll have the same fun atmosphere and engaged staff regardless of which ship you’re sailing.

  • Is there any wiggle room on the age? My girls will be 13 and 15 at the time of our sailing. They are excited to be in the teen space but will not be separated from each other.

    • Kerrie, There is wiggle room for 14-year-olds who may choose either Edge or Vibe. But 13 and 15 year old are generally required to stay in their age appropriate club. You can talk to the cast members once you’re on board the ship, but in my experience, they’re quite strict with the age groupings in the teen clubs.

      If your girls choose not to separate, there are still things they can do together onboard: movies, swimming, trivia, craft sessions, etc.

  • When do kids need to choose which club to go to? I thought maybe my 12 yr old might want to check out the oceaneer club too.

    • You can decide once you’re on board. All the clubs typically have open house hours from boarding time until the completion of the muster drill (usually around 4:30). You can stop by both places – see the space and chat with some of the counselors – and then decide which place is most appropriate for your family.

  • This Edge definitely looks bigger than others. We’ve been to Edge at the Fantasy and the Dream and my kids didn’t like it because the space felts so tiny, almost claustrophobic.

    • Yep. It definitely feels larger and more open than Edge on the other ships.
