    Do Kids have to carry their key to the world card with them on the ship?

    Ahoy, Michelle!

    On a Disney Cruise, in order for your children to gain access to your stateroom, they would need to have their Key To The World (KTTW) card with them. You can have them carry it in a lanyard around their neck, or a cute clip-on ID holder.

    If your children are Oceaneer Lab and Oceaneer Club age, 3-12, they will get a special "Mickey band" to use to check in and out of the clubs. Since an adult will need to be present to pick up the children from the clubs, they would not necessarily need to carry the KTTW card at all times, since you will have your own KTTW card. You can opt to let your older children have check-out privileges at the clubs, at which point they would most definitely need to carry their KTTW card.

    I suppose the quick answer is YES, they will need their Key To The World card MOST of the time.

    I hope this helps with your cruise planning! Please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again with more questions as your cruise gets closer.

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.

Meet the Panelist: Tracy, Illinois

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
