Documentation Reminder for Disney Cruise Line® Guests
The U.S. Government has proposed federal
regulations that would require all travelers to have valid passports
when entering or returning to he the United states from the Americas,
the Caribbean (including the Bahamas) and Bermuda.
This proposed travel initiative is
scheduled to be implemented along the following timeline:
December 31, 2006 - Passport or
other accepted document required for all air and sea travel to or from
Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda.
December 31, 2007 - Passport or
other accepted document required for all air, sea and land border
crossings in the Western Hemisphere.
With the proposed timeline, all guests
(including children) sailing with the Disney Cruise Line beginning
December 28, 2006, must have a valid passport to board the Disney Cruise
Line vessels, as they will be returning to the U.S. on or after the
December 31, 2006 implementation date. To avoid any
disappointment the Cruise Line has ask that you provide them with your
sailing party's passport numbers at least 90 days prior to your vacation
commencement. Due to these U.S. passport regulations, guests
without a valid passport after the implementation date will be denied
