    I am traveling with my 7 year old daughter later this month. I am divorced and her 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? Thanks!

    Hi Westley,

    How exciting to be traveling with your daughter on a Disney Cruise Line vacation! Thanks for sailing by planDisney with your questions; we are here to help.

    As long as you have your daughter's passport and it is valid for the length of your cruise, you do not need to bring a birth certificate or other identification for her. That is one of the great benefits of traveling with a passport.  

    Children traveling with at least one parent do not need an Authorization for Minor to Travel without a Parent or Legal Guardian. So, as long as you are traveling with your daughter, according to Disney Cruise Line policy, you are good to go. 

    I hope you plan to take a little "me" time during your cruise. While you enjoy a Senses Spa & Salon experience, an adult-exclusive activity, or just a peaceful moment at Quiet Cove Pool or settle in with a good book at Cove Café, your daughter will enjoy fun activities at Disney's Oceaneer Lab or Disney's Oceaneer Club. It really is a win-win!

    I hope you have an amazing vacation, Westley. Please sail by again with other questions!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
