    Do children under 18 get issued a Sea Pass card when disembarking the ship in the ports?

    Hi Carol!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you're planning an unforgettable vacation aboard Disney Cruise Line! Captain Mickey is busy planning all the fun that awaits you onboard during your voyage. I can't think of a better way to explore exotic ports of call than by sailing on a Disney Cruise!

    Carol, I'm so sorry, but I'm not quite sure what a Sea Pass is. I'm happy to share with you what the process is like disembarking the ship for adults and kiddos at each port of call, though! For most destinations, the ship will dock right next to the pier so Guests can easily use the gangway towards adventure. (If the ship needs to drop anchor away from shore, Guests will tender to the pier.) All adult Guests will need to show photo identification as well as their "Key to the World" card to board and disembark the ship in each port of call. (The "Key to the World" card is your onboard identification, stateroom key and onboard charge card!) Children disembarking the ship need to be accompanied by an adult staying in their same stateroom and only need to bring their "Key to the World" card along with them. If they will be disembarking with another specified adult, a parent or guardian may sign a "Debarkation Authorization for Minors" form at the Guest Services Desk.

    If you haven't done so already, definitely check out the Port Adventures offered through Disney Cruise Line! These exciting excursions are an incredible way to see the culture and beauty of each port of call throughout your voyage. We love picking new Port Adventures (or repeating some of our favorites) during each Disney Cruise!
