Location: Deck 5 Midship, Disney Magic

In the middle of Deck 5 aboard the Disney Magic, younger guests can visit the Oceaneer Club while right next door is the It's a Small World Nursery. While the two aren't connected (like the Oceaneer Lab and Club are) the transition from one to the next is very subtle, but needs to be explored!

Oceanner Lab and It's a Small World 

While the It's a Small World Nursery and the Oceaneer Club are for completely different age groups, the hallway between them connects the two in a very interesting way. In between, guests can find three groups of pictures. Closer to the Oceaneer Club are posters for the sections of the Oceaneers Club (Mickey Mouse Club, Andy's Room, Pixie Hollow, and Avengers Academy). Closer to the It's a Small World Nursery are a few pictures focusing around the 1934 Mickey Mouse short cartoon, Orphan's Benefit while in between the two groups of pictures from the 1937 Silly Symphony Cartoon, Woodland Cafe.

While looking at the three pictures close up there doesn't seem to be anything too special about the placement of pictures, you will see things in a different way once you take a step back.

As you can see, the pictures closest to the It's a Small World Nursery begin small and they get slightly bigger once we hit the Woodland Cafe pictures. Finally, the pictures featuring the locations for the Oceanneer's Club are the largest. So why the different sizes? It gives guests, and especially the young kids heading to the Oceaneer's Club a sense that they are becoming larger in the world while they figuratively travel from the It's a Small World Nursery (for little kids) to the Oceaneer's Club (for older kids). This isn't the only way Disney focuses on size on this deck, but we'll save that for another time.
