    I plan on taking a cruise with my 8 yr old twins out of Galveston to Mexico. Do I need to get documentation from the other parent that I can take them? Or do I just need to bring their passport?

    Hola, Jennifer! A Mexican getaway with your young ones sounds like a wonderful time! I am happy to help. 

    I think the anticipation of a Disney Cruise is almost as fun as the cruise itself. It’s a great idea to sort out your travel documentation before the big day! Disney Cruise Line doesn't require legal documentation from divorced parents or if one of the parents isn't traveling. During online check-in, you'll see a box asking, "Is a parent or legal guardian of this minor sailing on this cruise?" Simply answer yes, and you're all set!

    When you arrive at the port, make sure you keep everyone’s passports handy. They will be checked over one last time before you board the ship. With two eight-year-olds in tow, I recommend packing your swimsuits in your day bag so you can check out the pools and slides right after lunch. 

    Jennifer, I’m thrilled for you and your children to experience all the wonders of a Disney Cruise Line vacation. With its imaginative dining venues, engaging youth spaces, and family-friendly entertainment, your twins are in for an incredible adventure. Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab are perfect for junior sailors aged 3 to 10. I recommend visiting during Open House hours to meet the counselors and explore these interactive areas together.

    While your twins enjoy themselves in the kids’ clubs, you can unwind at the adult-exclusive Quiet Cove Pool. Here, you’ll find plush lounge chairs, whirlpool spas, and a nearby coffee spot and bar. Sipping a cocktail while watching the ocean pass by sounds like the perfect afternoon! 

    If you have any more questions before you set sail, please stop by planDisney and ask. 

    SEAS the adventure!
