    We are traveling on the wish in June for 4 days to the Bahamas and Castaway Cay. Our 10 year old granddaughter is traveling with us, will she need a passport, or would her birth certificate be sufficient?

    Welcome to planDisney Michael! June will be here before you know it! 

    Your granddaughter and everyone in your traveling party will need either a US passport or the original or copy of their state-issued birth certificate because you are cruising on a closed-loop sailing (beginning and ending at the same US port). Guests 16 years and older will also need to present a physical government-issued photo ID if they are presenting a birth certificate; digital/mobile state-issued IDs are not acceptable.

    If your granddaughter's parent or legal guardian is not traveling with you, you will also need to present an Authorization for Minor to Travel without a Parent or Legal Guardian form. This form, completed by her parent or legal guardian, authorizes you to retain her care, custody, and control during your cruise. 

    There are many things to do and explore while visiting Disney Castaway Cay, Disney's private island. There is snorkeling in the Snorkeling Lagoon beside the Castaway Family Beach. Look for some underwater surprises! You can rent snorkeling equipment from Gil's Fins and Boats or Flippers and Floats.  You can also enjoy a barbecue lunch at Cookies BBQ.

    Sail back to planDisney if you have any other questions.  

    Adventure is out there!
