    My wife has her maiden name on her passport. Should I call and change her reservation to her maiden name?

    Hi, George!

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so excited that your Disney Cruise Line voyage is just over the horizon. It will be such a wonderful adventure!

    Yes, you should definitely make sure that the names on your reservations match your travel documents, such as a passport. You can contact Disney Cruise Line directly to make sure that your reservation details match your identification. I would recommend calling, just to get everything taken care of quickly! If you booked your air travel through Disney Cruise Line make sure that you ask about the names on those reservations when you call as well.

    With your cruise sailing away soon, I recommend you take a look at the packing lists provided by Disney Cruise Line! We've cruised many times, but I feel like I always forget something and these lists are a great reminder.

    One last tip for you: if you think you might want to swim first thing on your cruise then you should pack a day bag with your swimming suits because your luggage will be delivered to your stateroom but it won't be ready right when you board. But you can change into your swimsuits in a restroom and hop right into the pool if it's available. My kids insist on doing this, even if it isn't very warm!

    Sending you lots of pixie dust for smooth sailing and a magical cruise, George!

    Keep moving forward!
