    can children use youth bands as keys to their stateroom? can they put money on their band to purchase things on the boat? can you customize your youth band and when will they get their bands ?

    Hi there, Vineet!

    Your Disney Cruise is just around the corner and I know you must be excited for all the fun that awaits you onboard!  Before you know it, you will be celebrating on the deck while you head to sea with Captain Mickey for fun in the sun!

    When you check in at the port for embarkation you will receive a Key to the World Card which will be your stateroom key and will also be used to purchase anything onboard in the gift shops and any other onboard purchases.  All Guests will receive a Key to the World card and you can grant purchasing privileges (or remove the privilege as well) to the cards for your children.  Any young Mouseketeers that are registered for the onboard Youth Clubs will receive an Oceaneer Band at check-in that is used to check them in and out of the onboard Youth Clubs.  They are not customizable but are all the same for each registered youth.  They can be returned at the end of the week or kept as a souvenir for an additional fee.  I recommend bringing a lanyard with you for all Guests so you can keep your Key to the World card handy.  They do sell them in the onboard gift shops, but if you have one go ahead and bring it with you for use.

    Your kids will love the onboard Youth Clubs…it is always a highlight of my young boys’ trip!  They love visiting for free play or the scheduled activities – and my husband and I love getting a little bit of time to enjoy the pool sans kiddos!  The Daily Navigator or Navigator app will have a detailed schedule of events and activities along with Open House hours where you can join your kids in the fun!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable vacation at sea!

    Happy Sailing!
