IMPORTANT: Authorization Forms for Minors 18 and Under Traveling with Adults Other than Legal Guardian
The following two forms must be completed for minors under age 18 traveling without their parent or legal guardian in order to sail aboard the ship and to go ashore at any port of call.
Minor Authorization Form – must be presented along with all other required documentation (i.e. passport or other allowed travel documents, etc.) when checking in for the cruise.
Minor Ashore Form – to be returned to the Guest Services Desk, located on Deck 3 Midship.
Travel Documents Needed
Proper travel documentation is required at embarkation and throughout the cruise for all guests. Even though a guest has completed the cruise line’s online registration, it is still the guest’s responsibility to present the required travel documents at the time of embarkation. Any guest without proper documents will not be allowed to board the vessel and no refund of the cruise fare will be issued. Disney Cruise Line, Focus on the Family and its agents/affiliates assume no responsibility for advising guests of proper travel documentation.
Disney highly recommends all guests travel with a government-issued passport that is valid for at least 6 months following the return of the cruise. Although a passport is not required for U.S. citizens taking cruises that begin and end in the same US port, travelling with a passport may help to expedite your Customs and Border Protection (CBP) clearance upon return to the US. Additionally, passports are required in the event you need to fly from the U.S. to a foreign port should you miss your scheduled port of embarkation or need to fly back to the US for emergency reasons.
You may also use a valid U.S. Passport Card as proof of citizenship – this option can be more convenient and less expensive than a passport book, and will allow entry into the United States at land border crossings or sea ports-of-entry from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda. However, it cannot be used for international travel by air.
For more information about travel documents for your cruise, please follow this link.
Disney Cruise Line requests that you provide your passport number after you receive your Booking ID# – 3 to 4 weeks before sailing. Simply add the details to the Guest Information Form found in Disney Cruise Line’s “My Online Check-In”.
Non-Custodial Adults traveling with minor children
If you are traveling with minor children (under 18), and you are not their legal guardian, two authorization forms must be filled out in order for them board the ship, and to disembark at ports of call. Access forms: Minor Authorization Form and Minor Ashore Form
Guests with Disabilities, Special Needs, Equipment or Special Requests
Guest with disabilities, special needs, equipment or special requests (medical and dietary) should review the available information Disney’s website at https://disneycruise.disney.go.com/guest-services/guests-with-disabilities/, complete a Request Special Services Form at https://disneycruise.disney.go.com/special-services-information-form/ and contact the Disney Cruise Line Special Services team at 407-566-3202
Arrange for the Celebration of A Special Occasion
We recommend you let us know about your special occasion—such as an anniversary, birthday or honeymoon—at least 3 weeks prior to sailing so we can make arrangements for your celebration in one of the dining rooms. Please contact us with your request at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Disney Dream also offers a variety of flowers, chocolates and more that can be delivered to your stateroom, as well as special themed packages, such as the “Family Reunion.” Browse the complete selection of In-Room Gifts and Amenities available for your cruise itinerary.
