    Ahoy! I have cruised before, with our older children, but we are doing a cruise next March on the Fantasy and neither child has cruised before. This is only my second cruise, not sure if lanyards are given, but if so, will all guests in our room get one?

    Hi Shannon!

    I love to hEAR that you are planning an adventure on the high seas onboard the Disney Fantasy! There are going to be so many amazing activities onboard, and I hope that you and your family plan on making many magical memories together. 

    As you know, Guests who have sailed before with Captain Mickey receive complimentary lanyards to store their Key to the World Card. This card lives up to its name as a key to everything on Disney Cruise Line! Guests can use it to unlock their stateroom door, make charges to their stateroom account, and it serves as their ship identification and photo card. Moreover, the Key to the World Card also shows the rotational dining schedule, table number, and muster station.  

    I have heard that it could happen one of two ways on your cruise. Either everyone in your stateroom gets lanyards because you have the highest Castaway Club category in the stateroom and you have cruised with Captain Mickey before. Or it could be that they only distribute lanyards to those in your stateroom according to their Castaway Club status. In that case, the kids would not receive lanyards. 

    So since it could go either way, I would suggest that you buy inexpensive lanyards and bring them just in case your two kids who have not cruised Disney Cruise Line before have a backup plan. You could always swap out the Disney Cruise Line lanyards and let them use those and recycle your  lanyards from previous cruises, too. Or you can purchase lanyards at the onboard shops. Just trying to think outside the box in the unlikely event that they do not receive lanyards for this voyage.

    There's so much more that I can pack in just one answer, so I hope you'll drop back by planDisney with any additional questions. Hope you have a FANTAStic cruise!

    Happy Sailing!
