    Can I have the Authorization for Minor to Travel without a Parent or Legal Guardian notarized now, 4 months before our Disney Cruise with our grandchildren, or should I wait until it's closer to embarkation?

    Ahoy Barbara, and welcome to planDisney!  I like that you are planning ahead to prepare the documents needed like the Authorization for Minor to Travel without a Parent or Legal Guardian form.  

    Good news! This form no longer needs to be notarized.  That is one thing you can take off of your to-do list!  You do want to make sure that you have the completed authorization form along with the required travel documentation for you and your grandchildren in your carry-on bag when you arrive at the port.  If you add them to your checked luggage, you will not be able to access them once you give your luggage to the porters.  

    A magical vacation aboard Disney Cruise Line with your grandchildren is going to be a memory maker.  A great way to capture those memories is by utilizing the professional photographers on Disney Cruise Line.  When my son was younger, I always pre-purchased the Unlimited Digital Package to receive a discount on the package.  This must be booked after you are paid in full, within your booking window, and at least 3 days before your sail date.  Disney Cruise Line Photographers will be in the rotational dining restaurants, character meet and greets, and around some of the iconic ship locations.   I took advantage of every photo opportunity I could find!

    If you have any other questions, sail back to planDisney.  We will be happy to help you get ready to make memories.

    Adventure is out there!
