    Hey there! We are setting sail on June 2, 2017 and are so excited!!! If you and your children (under the age of 16) have passports, do you need to bring birth certificates as well or will the passports suffice?

    Hi Constance!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your cruise is right around the corner! Eeee! I can hear your excitement through your question and am equally so excited for you! Before you know it, you and your family will be setting sail on a magical voyage aboard Disney Cruise Line! It sounds like you're starting to get everything ready for your cruise.

    If you have a valid passport for each person in your family, you will be good to go! You will present each passport to a Disney Cruise Line representative during check-in at the Cruise Terminal. You'll also need to present them while going through U.S. Customs upon returning home from your voyage. All Guests (including kiddos) will need their "Key to the World" card when disembarking the ship to go ashore. The "Key to the World" card acts as your cruise identification card, stateroom key and onboard charge card. Each Guest 18 years of age or over will need a government-issued photo ID along with their "Key to the World" card when leaving the ship at different ports of call. I suggest taking a peek at the passports and travel documentation information on Disney Cruise Line's website before setting sail.

    Have you started thinking about what to pack, yet? Even though I've sailed on multiple Disney Cruises, I love referring to the Packing List for Disney Cruises, just to make sure I don't forget anything!

    Thanks so much for sailing by with this excellent question!
