    We are going on our first Disney cruise in April for four nights on the Dream traveling to Bahamas and Castaway Cay. Do we need passports or are birth certificates and driver licenses alright? Our boys are 10 and 13. Do you suggest any excursions?

    Hi Marianne!
    Welcome to the Moms Panel, and thanks for stopping by with your question. Your April cruise will be here before you know it - I'm sure you're looking forward to warmer weather after the winter we've had here in the South! Just imagine about all the fun you're going to have aboard the Disney Dream - think warm, happy thoughts!

    At this time, U.S. Citizens are allowed to travel this itinerary with a valid Government-issued I.D. and an original or certified copy of your state-issued Birth Certificate. However, Disney Cruise Line strongly recommends traveling with a passport. Government regulations are subject to change at any time. Check out the Passport and Travel Documentation tab in the "My Reservations" section on the Disney Cruise Line website for the most updated information, and so you can make the best decision for your family before you set sail.

    On our first cruise, we traveled with birth certificates and I.D.s. It was a lot of important paperwork to keep up with, and I worried about not having a passport in case of an emergency. We've since gotten passports, and I just rest a little easier when we travel!

    For information about obtaining a passport before you sail, you can visit . I hope this information helps! Wishing you a most magical voyage aboard the beautiful Disney Dream!
