    I am traveling with my daughters later this month (ages 6 and one). I am divorced and the other parent is not joining us: 1) I have her passport, do I need to bring a birth certificate? 2) Does the other parent need to fill out an authorization form? Thank

    Hello, Yaneisy! Welcome to planDisney.

    A Disney Cruise is perfect for families of every age and size because there is so much to do onboard together and plenty to enjoy separately, too! I took my son on a mother-son cruise two summers ago, and he still talks about how much fun he had. I’m confident your daughters will feel the same. 

    Disney Cruise Line does not require an authorization form to travel with one parent. When I was completing the online check-in for my son, I noticed it asked, “Is a parent or legal guardian of this minor sailing on this cruise?” If you answered yes, you're good to go. As your daughters' parent, you can set sail with them worry-free.

    It sounds like you're all set with the necessary travel documentation. As U.S. citizens, you'll need to present a passport or birth certificate for your daughters. Since you have passports, you can keep their birth certificates at home. Hopefully, this information helps ease your mind so you can focus on creating unforgettable memories.

    While there are so many fun activities you can do together, one highlight is definitely the youth clubs. Disney's Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab are fantastic spaces for your six-year-old to explore. If you're interested, your pint-sized princess can play under the guidance of expert Disney counselors in the "it's a small world” nursery! 

    Disney Cruise Line offers helpful amenities for guests traveling with babies to make their journey as comfortable as possible. Your Stateroom Host can provide essentials like a diaper disposal unit and a portable crib. Plus, high chairs are readily available in all the dining rooms.

    Yaneisy, you and your girls will surely be treated like royalty by the crew throughout your journey! Thank you for trusting us with your vacation planning questions.

    SEAS the adventure!

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!
