    We are sailing with our boys(18/15). We have 2 adjoining rooms. We had to book my husband and I in each room with one of the boys b/c our oldest wasn't 21. We plan to have the boys in one and us in the other. Curious about getting the key cards change.

    Hi Amy, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Oh boy, I'm so happy to hEAR you have a Disney cruise on the horizon. I know you all must be incredibly excited about sailing with Captain Mickey and his friends.

    I'm a mom to two teens myself, so I can SEA why you want your boys to be able to access their stateroom using their Key to the World cards even though the reservation has to have one adult named in each stateroom. 

    Your Key the World Card can unlock so much magic for you while onboard: merchandise purchases, identification, and stateroom doors. In your situation, the card will not open both stateroom doors. However, since you have two adjoining rooms, you could leave the adjoining room door open. Practically speaking, all four members of your pirate crew can move about between the two staterooms. My girlfriends and I choose to do this when cruising together so we can all chat as we get ready for rotational dining or our Palo reservation. 

    Currently, the other option is to have some of your cards rekeyed. Since you and one of your sons are booked in a stateroom together, both of your Key to the World cards need to be changed. As soon as you board the ship, I'd suggest visiting the Guest Services Desk (Deck 3, Midship) to have them recode those two cards. This way, both your sons will be able to access their stateroom during your sailing...and then there's no need to leave that adjoining stateroom door open. You and your husband still have to stay listed on each of the staterooms, but Disney Cruise Line knows how to sprinkle the pixie dust so everyone has a stateroom key that corresponds to where they are sleeping.

    Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any other questions as you chart your course for adventure on the high seas.

    Amy, have fun making magical memories onboard with your crew! Happy Sailing!
