    I'm going on a cruise to the Bahamas, and we are leaving from Florida. Do I need a passport?

    Hello there, Brandon!

    I am glad you have sailed back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  How thrilling to hEAR you will be sailing with Captain Mickey to the Bahamas!  The Bahamas is home to my favorite port, Castaway Cay.  I hope you enjoy this magical island paradise as much as my family has each time we have visited.

    When sailing to the Bahamas leaving from a Floridian port, each guest must provide the required documentation when you check in at the cruise terminal.  Each adult guest is required to present either an original valid U.S. Passport or their state-issued birth certificate and a government-issued photo ID.  Guests who are fifteen years of age or younger must present either an original valid U.S. Passport or their state-issued birth certificate.

    Now that you know what documentation to bring with you to get on the ship, be sure to check out the Disney Cruise Line suggested packing lists to ensure you have everything you need while you are on the ship! 

    Before you arrive at the cruise terminal, take some time to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App on your phone or device.  This app is great to use while sailing as it provides details on showtimes, character greetings, dinner menus and even a chat feature to stay in contact with your pirate crew while onboard!

    Enjoy making magical memories!  Bon voyage!  Angie
