    Hello! Heading out on the Dream 12/20-12/23 which is only to Castaway Cay. Do we need our passport books or passport cards? Thank you!

    Hi Anissa!

    Ahoy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited that you stopped by with your question about your upcoming Very Merrytime voyage with Captain Mickey!  What a great start to the holidays you will have, and I am so excited for you and the memorable vacation you have planned!

    I am so glad you asked about necessary travel documents needed for your voyage!  The last thing you want to do is scramble at the last minute - or arrive at the port for embarkation only to find out that you are missing or without the necessary documents needed to board the ship!  Disney Cruise Line’s guidelines for travel documents needed are based on government regulations which are subject to change at any time and without notice. 

    As stated in the guidelines, when traveling round-trip from Florida to the Bahamas (including Disney’s Castaway Cay), Guests ages 16 years and older are required to present one of the following when they arrive for check-in at Port Canaveral:

    Original U.S. Passport
    Original U.S. Passport Card


    Original or copy of a state-issued birth certificate AND Government-issued photo identification.

    For Mouseketeers ages 15 years and younger, one of the above documents is required, but they do not need to present Government-issued photo identification.  So, if you are traveling with someone under the age of 16, they could travel with just their birth certificate.

    We have always traveled with our passports and locked them in our stateroom safe once onboard, only taking them out when needed for arrival at a port.  Announcements will always be made and reminders given to inform Guests as to what type of identification is needed when disembarking the ship at a port of call.   

    I hope this information is helpful in getting everything finalized and ready for your voyage.  If you have any other questions, please visit us again!  Wishing you a joyful and festive voyage!

    Happy Sailing!
