    Hello Moms! We have a front & back copy of our 12 year old's birth certificate. His original was sent out when we applied for his passport for our Alaska cruise and won't have it back before our Bahama cruise. Are we good with a regular copy?

    Welcome back aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tammy!

    It is nice to "sea" you again with another great question about cruising with Captain Mickey.  I am so excited that you will be joining him NEXT WEEK!  The islands of the Bahamas are calling your name!

    I have good news for you!  U.S. Citizens that are 15 years of age and younger can present an original or copy of their state-issued birth certificate for itineraries that leave and return to the same U.S. port, so the copy you have should fulfill his travel documentation requirements.

    On embarkation day, bring a carry-on bag with you to keep all your documents and any medicine you may need with you.  I also like to keep room in ours for our swimsuits and sunscreen so as soon as we are onboard we can head for some fun in the pools while we wait for our stateroom and luggage to be delivered.  You can then use that bag to tote your beach essentials with you when you visit my favorite Bahamian port, Castaway Cay!  My family loves exploring the island by bicycle and snapping selfies at the observation tower with the ship in the background.

    Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail, Tammy!  Enjoy making memories together on your vacation!

    Bon voyage!  Angie
