Ports & Port Adventures Excursions – Frequently Asked Questions


Does my child need to be accompanied by an adult to go ashore?


In general, Disney Cruise Line security guidelines require children under the age of 18 to be accompanied by an adult Guest traveling in the same stateroom.

However, a parent or guardian may allow their child to go ashore either unaccompanied by an adult or with another specified adult Guest by completing the “Traveling with Minors” section of My Online Check-In. Or, once on board, you may sign a Debarkation Authorization for Minors Form at the Guest Service Desk, located at Deck 3, Midship. Please note: Unaccompanied minors require a Key to the World card and original government issued photo ID when going ashore in all ports except Disney Castaway Cay, where only a Key to the World card is required.

Children participating in Port Adventures must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, unless participating in a teen-only tour.
