    Samantha from MI Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Does DCL accept the Enhanced Drivers License in place of a passport? This is different than the Real ID and only 5 states offer the EDL. We are from Michigan and we’re advised this would be acceptable from Secretary of State Office.

    Hi Samantha, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question!

    The answer to your question depends on the type of itinerary that you’ve chosen for your Disney Cruise Line vacation. Although Disney Cruise Line does encourage Guests to carry a passport with them during their voyage, if your cruise is a Round Trip (or “closed loop”) voyage that originates from and returns to the same United States port, US Citizens in your travel party don’t need to have a passport in order to set sail. What you'll need instead would be an original or copy of your state-issued birth certificate AND a physical Government-issued photo ID. Even if you have an Enhanced Drivers License from Michigan, you’ll still need to have a copy of your birth certificate with you too; from what I understand, Disney doesn’t distinguish between the EDL and a “regular” license for travel documentation purposes

    If you’re on an international or other one-way sailing, you’ll likely need to have your Passport with you as well.

    If you have any questions about your specific situation, I encourage you to contact Disney Cruise Line either by phone or by email

    Have a Magical Day,
