    Our first Disney Cruise embarks on March 17 - When using the Key to the World, when in a lanyard, do you have to remove it to scan it? If not - would a more "substantial" leather or fabric lanyard with clear window also work? Thanks!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Julie!

    I am so very excited to hear you will be taking your first cruise with Captain Mickey!  Only one short month until you step onboard and hear your name announced as you start your high seas adventure.  It looks like you will be sailing on the Disney Magic!  Our very first Disney Cruise was on the Disney Magic as well, and I am so glad we had the opportunity to experience this amazing ship first.  I love the Disney Magic because it's small and has an intimate feeling all while offering so many amenities and onboard activities that there is always something to do.

    Your Key To The World Card will unlock all the magic onboard.  It is great that you are planning ahead to have a lanyard as I find this is the easiest way to make sure everyone in my pirate crew has their card on them at all times.  The cards can be scanned while in the plastic holder attached to the lanyard.  You need to be sure the entire card is visible or you may be asked to remove it.  

    Disney Cruise Line's Key To The World Card also serves as your "payment method" for any extras you may purchase while onboard.  If you spend an evening at Keys listening to live music and decide to get a drink, just present your card and the charge will be made to your stateroom.  If you grab some popcorn before the evening's show in the Walt Disney Theater, don't worry about bringing your purse!  Just show the Cast Member your card in your fabulous lanyard and off to the show you go.  

    Enjoy unlocking the magic and making memories!  Bon voyage!  Angie
