    Do i need a birth certificate if I have a passport

    Ahoy, Rebecca! Thanks for sailing back to planDisney for some help before your magical voyage!

    I love it when my countdown dips below thirty days. I bet you’re starting to plan your outfits and think about all the fun you'll have onboard. If you haven’t already done so, now is a great time to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. Once you reach the terminal, you can start exploring all the fun activities right away!

    When you arrive at the port, Disney Cruise Line representatives will scan your Port Arrival Form and citizenship documents before guiding you through security and onto the ship. For closed-loop sailings, U.S. citizens can present a U.S. Passport OR an original or copy of a state-issued birth certificate along with a photo ID – no need for both, which is great news!

    Remember to bring a photo ID and your Key to the World Card or DisneyBand+ during your port stops to reboard. I usually take my driver’s license and stash my passport safely in my stateroom. And don't worry about the little ones – kids don't need a photo ID to return to the ship. 

    One of the best things about DisneyBand+ is its hands-free convenience. With the band, you can breeze through boarding, access your stateroom, and make onboard purchases. The light-up features are also a fun touch! You can preorder yours now or pick one up on the ship. 

    Wishing you an unforgettable voyage filled with magic and memories! Feel free to stop by and see us again if you have any last-minute questions.

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
