    After our cruise online check-in we got this email: You are required to bring all identification documents submitted during the Online Check-in process with you to the port. Does this include the picture we submitted for online? Do we have to print it?

    Ahoy Molly,

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney with your question! I am happy to help you to think about your upcoming Disney Cruise Line sailing. 

    I have sailed recently with Disney Cruise Line, and I can let you know that I have not printed out and brought with us the photographs that we submitted of ourselves when doing Online Check-In. You will need to bring with you what you used as your identification document, which is a valid passport or other acceptable proof of citizenship. Also, be sure to check your specific itinerary for any specific travel guidelines and regulations.

    For the check-in process at the port, you should also have a copy of the Online Check-In Port Arrival Form that is created when you complete your Online Check-In. This form will get scanned a few times during the check-in and boarding process at your port.

    On check-in day, do be sure that you are keeping important items, such as medications, with you in your carry-on luggage. In addition, I like to throw a swimsuit and some sunscreen into my carry-on bag. You never know if you are going to feel like hitting the pool decks soon after boarding the ship, and you want to be prepared!

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Molly. Please feel free to sail on back if you have any further questions!
