    We are traveling on the Dream in Dec. I will be traveling with my daughters, but not their father. Do I need any documentation from their father to board the ship or will their passports be sufficient?

    Welcome back, Jennifer!

    Usually my whole family sets sail together for our Disney Cruise Line adventures, but I've taken each of my kids on special "Mommy and Me" cruises too and they've been such magical experiences. In fact, my daughter and I are getting ready to set sail this fall together for a girls' getaway with Captain Mickey and his crew and we just can't wait!

    Since you're their mother and legal guardian, you will not need additional documents from their father to set sail since you're all set with your daughters' passports. Children traveling with adults other than their own parents do need to have the Minor Authorization to Travel form completed, but this isn't necessary in your case. Have your passport ready too, and be sure to check those expiration dates! We had a close call once when my husband and I realized a few months before sailing that our passports were about to expire. Thank goodness we checked them early enough to renew in time, instead of realizing it as we arrived at port!

    Your Very Merrytime sailing with your girls this December promises lots of additional magic on top of what is already included in every Disney Cruise Line voyage, so I hope you're ready to enjoy all those magical moments! Have so much fun planning!
