    In the check in instructions, it states a security photo will need to be provided of each person in your travel party. Does that mean a photo separate from the photo that is found on your passport? In other words, a security photo plus your passport photo.

    Ahoy Sandra,

    Thank you so much for coming to planDisney with your question. I am happy to help you with your question about Disney Cruise Line online check-in!

    You are correct, Sandra. When you check in online, you will upload a photo of your passport or other valid proof of citizenship, and you will be asked for a separate photo of each guest. While these photos are much like a passport photo in that they are one person, essentially a photo of your face with no one else in the photo, they actually cannot be your passport photo. But do not worry about it too much! A simple photo of each person captured quickly on your phone will be perfect. I actually checked in online recently for a sailing and the process was very quick and easy.

    Do be sure that you check the documentation you will need for your specific itinerary, Sandra. You can also learn important information before your sailing for various itineraries.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you as you prepare for your magical voyage, Sandra. Please feel free to sail on back with any further questions!
