    My hubby and I have passports, but my kids dont. I know I can bring their birth cert., however, my oldest was born abroad and I dont want to bring the papers on the cruise. Can they board with just passport cards, without the birth cert or full passport?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Annie!

    I am so excited to hear that you and your pirate crew will be sailing with Captain Mickey on the Disney Dream this fall!  It is great that you are already starting to plan for your vacation.  For me, planning is part of the fun of going on a high seas adventure!

    To ensure you sail through check in at the port terminal, you will want to be sure you have the appropriate required documentation to travel.  When sailing from (and returning to) Port Canaveral, the required documents for U.S. citizens are either an original, valid U.S. Passport, Passport Card or Trusted Traveler Card.  These requirements are subject to change, so it is important to check and validate these are still the requirements closer to your sailing date.

    You can rest easy knowing that all your treasure can be kept secure in your stateroom.  Each stateroom does have a safe that can fit your travel documentation and other valuables.  You are able to set the secret passcode to keep any salty pirates from running away with your booty.

    Don't forget to bring your eye patches and swash-buckling pirate garb to celebrate your high seas adventure in style on Pirate Night.  This buccaneer bash hosts a spirited deck party, special dinner menu and unique character greetings!  Don't forget to make your appointment for your pirate transformation at the Pirate's League at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!

    Have fun making magical memories!  Bon voyage!  Angie
