    I would like to add a magic band for my husband. Another question, will I need a passport on my fantasy cruise to the carribean ?

    Hi there, Cheryl!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your FANTASY at sea is fast approaching and very soon you’ll be heading to sea for fun and adventure!  I know you are eagerly anticipating it and excitedly preparing for it!  

    Disney Cruise Line does not utilize magic bands onboard.  Instead you will receive a Key to the World card upon Embarkation that is used on the ship and at Castaway Cay.  It will serve as your key to your stateroom and will be your necessary to have in order to get on and off the ship at your ports of call.  You will also use it to charge any onboard purchases such as bar service or items from the gift shops on board.  Since you want to have it handy throughout your trip, I recommend bringing a lanyard to keep it in.  If you are traveling with little ones, I recommend hanging on to theirs so they don’t get misplaced.  Any young cruisers who are registered for the Youth Clubs will receive an Oceaneer Band that will be their pass in and out of the Youth Clubs.  

    All Guests, 16 years and older, are in need of a valid passport for travel on a Caribbean itinerary.  You will want to ensure it is valid and current prior to your trip and have it handy when you complete your Online Check-In.  

    Prior to your sailing I recommend downloading the Navigator app to your smartphone to have access to a complete schedule of onboard activities and entertainment, menus and a chat feature that can be used to communicate with other Guests while onboard.
    I wish you a magical adventure at sea!  

    Happy Sailing!
