I am taking my grandchildren ages 11 & 6 on a cruise in May. Do I need passports for them? Or any other documents to show they are in my care?

Passports are preferred–that will make your check-in process much smoother and will be a lifesaver you have an emergency while on the cruise. If you don’t have passports you will need a birth certificate with raised seal. You will also want a signed letter from the children’s parents stating that you are allowed to take them out of the country. I would recommend contacting Disney Cruise Line to get more information so that you have everything in order when you arrive at the Port.

About Sarah Chapman

I am a long time Disney fan since I was hooked on Walt Disney World with my first trip in 1987. Since that time I’ve tried experiencing everything I can in the parks, with a total of 30 visits and counting (I’m always planning my next trip) to Walt Disney World—not to mention Disney Cruise Line and even (shhh!) Universal Orlando and Sea World. I’ve turned my Disney obsession into a profession helping others plan their magical vacations as a Dream Vacation Maker at LBAC Travel. I am a work at home mom to three wonderful boys, and each one has been properly indoctrinated with all things Disney. Walt Disney World is definitely our “Laughing Place.” Look for me on Facebook at for updates, discount announcements, tips, tricks and planning advice for your next vacation.
