    We are planning for our cruise in January 2021! And we were looking at details regarding the Key to the World card. Since we are first timers, will we receive lanyards for the cards when we check-in for do we have to purchase them prior to boarding?

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, John!

    Thank you for sailing by with a great question as you get ready to sail with Captain Mickey next year.  I am so very excited for you to experience all of the magic waiting for you on your very first Disney Cruise Line vacation!  It is great that you have already done some research as you cruise closer to your sailing date.  With your careful planning, I can see smooth seas ahead of you!

    After your first sailing, when you officially become a member of the Castaway Club, you will receive a lanyard from Disney Cruise Line on all future cruises.  However, on your first cruise, you must bring your own lanyard if you'd like one to wear during your vacation.

    Before our first cruise, I ordered lanyards from ShopDisney.com that had a card holder for everyone in my pirate crew.  These worked great and we used them to hold our pins for pin trading as well!  Right now, you can even order a Disney Cruise Line lanyard if you'd like!

    I hope I have steered you in the right direction, John.  Please cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions as your advance booking window approaches and you get ready for your adventure!

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
