    I plan to cruise with my minor grandchild without his parents. Is there any extra documentation, beside passport, that I will need?

    Ahoy, Nora!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! What a special sailing you have planned for 2020. There will be so many things for you to experience with your grandson to create unforgettable memories on your vacation. It may be meeting the world-famous Disney Characters, watching a favorite Disney movie by the pool, participating in a hilarious game show, or indulging in a delicious ice cream cone (or two!). The fun never ends when cruising with Mickey, and I am certain your time onboard will be treasured by the two of you for yEARs to come. 

    Nora, I know you want to ensure a smooth check-in at the cruise terminal by having the proper documentation ready to go. Since your grandson is traveling without a parent, you'll need to bring the Authorization For A Minor To Travel Without a Parent or Legal Guardian Form. Please print this form and have his parents fill it out for you to present during the check-in process at the port. This will be all you need for him along with his valid U.S. Passport. 

    Thank you for reaching out with your question. As you think of others, please keep us in mind. Also, don't forget to go ahead and download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for your mobile device. It's free and has been recently enhanced, so you can access all the planning tools before you go! While onboard, you can navigate the ship using the deck plans, keep up with the daily activities, check dining menus, and more! You'll love having it at your fingertips. 

    Have a magical day!
