    Disney Dream cruise. Hoping to do early online check at 75 days out to board ship early, but my kids 15 and under are waiting on passports to arrive. Will I still be able to do online checkin without their passport info or can I use their birth cert.

    Ahoy Tara!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  You can finally see your cruise on the horizon!  How excited are you to begin finalizing your adventure when your advance booking window opens?  I cannot wait for you to experience all of the magic onboard the Disney Dream!

    When your online check-in becomes available 75 days before you set sail, you are not required to enter a Passport number to complete your check-in and begin to make your Port Adventure and onboard reservations.  Once your pirates-in-training receive their Passports, you can return to your online check-in and enter their Passport numbers at that time. 

    What is important is that when you arrive at the port, you bring your Port Arrival Form and the proper travel documentation.  U.S. citizens sailing from and returning to the same U.S. port can present an original, valid U.S. Passport or an original or copy of a state-issued birth certificate and a government-issued photo ID.  Your pirates-in-training 15 years of age or younger do not need to present a government-issued photo ID in addition to the other requirements.

    If your young sailors are planning on some time in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab, you can pre-register them during your online check-in, as well as make reservations for some "me time" in Senses Spa and Salon!

    After your adventure with Captain Mickey, you will become a member of the Castaway Club and receive all the benefits of being a returning cruiser, including early access to your advance booking window and new itineraries!  Check in to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions, Tara!
