    Hi, please could you tell me what currency is used aboard the Disney Magic when it is in the Med? Our children want to know what to convert their pocket money in to. Are they able to use cash on the ship? Thanks.

    Welcome aboard, Stephanie!

    Countdown to the Med on the Disney Magic is right around the corner... I am so excited for you and your family. It will be a magical trip full of fun and entertainment. Try to squeeze in some relaxation in there -  I know that it will be tough with all the activities that you'll want to participate in, but just remember that the adults have a lot in store for them too when sailing with Disney.

    The Disney Cruise ships operate as a cashless operation on board. The currency used for all onboard charges will be US Dollars. All that you and your family will need is your Key to the World Card. All purchases on board will need to be paid for on the cards that you authorize charging privileges to. When you setup your Online Check-in, you can choose which of your family members will be allowed to use their card to purchase anything while on board. These charges will then show up on your stateroom folio. If you decide to give your children charging privileges, you'll want to share the account pin number with them (4-digit pin). Whenever they purchase anything from the shops, they'll be asked to swipe their card and enter the pin. They will also sign a receipt, which they can give to you later, if you need to do some accounting work or tally their expenses against their pocket money bank with you. Otherwise, you'll have to make the purchase for them on your Card, should you decide to not allow purchases on their card. You can visit Guest Services at the end of every day if you need to check your stateroom charges.

    I always find it helpful to keep your Key to the World Card in a lanyard. It makes the card easily accessible. You can choose to bring a lanyard, or you can pick one up on board. These can keep the card safe, and just around your neck. My kids have not lost a card yet - and they are now quite used to wearing the lanyard.

    If you have additional questions, Stephanie... please write back.
