    We are surprising our granddaughter with a 2023 Very merry Time cruise in November to the Carribean, other than a passport card do we need any other documents for her?

    Welcome to planDisney, James! Cue the holiday music because we are halfway to the holidays! 

    Oh, what fun! I can’t wait for you to board the Disney Fantasy and see the gorgeous atrium adorned with garland and a beautiful sparkling Christmas tree. What a wonderful surprise you have planned for your granddaughter. Very Merry Time Cruises are my favorite way to celebrate the holidays. There’s a sleigh full of magic aboard. I’m happy to share the travel documentation needed for your merry celebration.

    You can sail with an Original US Passport Card for closed-loop sailings as long as you are a US Citizen. All documents must be valid for the entire length of the voyage. During online check-in, you will submit a picture of everyone’s Passport Card and present this documentation at the port upon arrival. I always recommend checking the Passport and Travel Documentation page on the Disney Cruise Line website for the most up-to-date information. 

    You’ll also need to bring with you the Authorization for Minor to Travel without a Parent or Legal Guardian form. This form must be completed for minors traveling without a parent or legal guardian and needs to be notarized by a Notary Public. A Port Representative will ask for the signed form upon arrival at the port.

    I hope you have a winter wonderland of fun at sea! Even though it’s ninety degrees in Florida today, I have my Christmas sweater and cup of hot cocoa standing by as I anxiously await Disney Parks Blog Halfway to the Holidays special announcements, sneak peeks, and holiday treats starting this week! Follow along as they share new delights for Disney Cruise Line. I can’t wait! 

    James, please send any additional questions our way. We are happy to provide a stocking full of tips for your cruise.

Meet the Panelist: Tracie, Florida

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
