    What documentation is needed for a foster child traveling with his aunt who is not his legal guardian?

    Hello, Carrie and a warm welcome back to planDisney!

    How wonderful that there will be many magical memories to be made soon on a Disney cruise, and I am glad that you reached out to planDisney for pre-planning.

    In addition to the current Disney Cruise Line – Authorization for Minor to Travel without a Parent or Legal Guardian form which must be completed and presented at the port according to the Disney Cruise Line – Travel with Minors details, I would also highly recommend that the child’s social worker and/or case manager be consulted with what may also be needed from a legal perspective for the child as a ward of the court, as state laws may vary from state to state. As well, please ensure that the Disney Cruise Line – Port Arrival Form and Other Documents are completed for presentation at the port. The Port Arrival Form can be printed out, but can also be added to a digital wallet on a mobile device, by selecting the Online Check-In Status option via the Online Check-In link beneath the Already Booked tab. The option to add the Port Arrival Form via Add to Mobile Wallet should be available once the Port Arrival Form has been completed.

    Downloading the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App will present many convenient planning features before and during the sailing including accessing the Port Arrival Form.

    Please refer to the current Disney Cruise Line – Know Before You Go resource in preparation for the sailing, especially for health and safety measures and all necessary protocols.

    Disney Cruise Line’s – Onboard Activities will enhance everyone’s voyage, especially the enriching and fun Youth Clubs.

    It was my pleasure offering a little advice, Carrie, and I wish everyone a most magical sailing, thank you so kindly for stopping by planDisney!
