    I have a question about Identification. For the Alaska Cruise, at this time, is an Enhanced Driver's License or Identification card acceptable, or is the passport required? Thank you for your help.

    Ahoy, J - welcome back to the Moms Panel!

    Having all your documentation in order before you cruise is a must! It really makes for a smooth transition in the ports, whether you're embarking on your vacation or disembarking at the end of a fantastic voyage.

    I've looked into the passport requirements for Disney Cruise Line Alaskan itineraries leaving from Vancouver, Canada. If you're traveling to or returning from Vancouver by air, all guests claiming U.S. citizenship (including children) must provide a valid U.S. Passport. U.S. Citizens traveling to Vancouver by land or sea will be allowed to present a valid state-issued Enhanced Driver's License. Guests under the age of 16 may present an original or copy of their state-issued birth certificate.

    Due to ever-changing government regulations, Disney Cruise Line recommends that all Guests travel with a passport. I encourage you to check out the Passport and Travel Documentation information on to help you make an informed decision before you travel. You can also visit the U.S. State Department's website at for up-to-date policies and government regulations.

    Hope this helps! If you have any further questions, please let us know. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
