    what paperwork needed to bring a grandkid onboard?

    Ahoy there George!  I'm happy that you stopped by with your question.

    If your grandchild is under the age of 18 and at least one of his or her parents or legal guardians will not be traveling with you, an Authorization for Minor to Travel without a Parent or Legal Guardian form will need to be completed and brought to the port with you.  Along with that form, he or she will need citizenship documents such as their US Passport.  If you are going on a closed-looped sailing (your cruise itinerary begins and ends at the same US port), an original or copy of his or her state-issued birth certificate is also sufficient.

    Disney Cruise Line offers so much for Guests of all ages.  There are great activities for you to enjoy together such as watching movies on Funnel Vision while eating ice cream by the pool. I know you will make magical memories with your grandchild.

    If you have any other questions, sail back to planDisney and we will be happy to help.

    Happy Planning!
