What is travel insurance and do I need it?
When it comes to cruising, travel insurance is designed to protect you in the event you have to cancel your cruise at the last minute. Cruise Lines don't like last minute cancellations and will penalize you heavily. Most Cruise Lines offer cruise insurance to cover you in the event of a medical situation that would force you to cancel. With a Disney Cruise, All Seasons Travel offers you a choice between insurance companies. Disney Cruise Line's Insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions, except to offer a Future Cruise Credit. However, our third party provider, Travel Insured, does offer coverage for pre-existing conditions, and at a lesser cost. We highly recommend some form of travel insurance.
What Documentation is Necessary?
US and Canadian citizens need to bring an original, state issued birth certificate. Photocopies are not accepted. All adults must also present a picture ID. Driver's Licenses are fine. Passports are also accepted. All guests who are non-US citizens residing in the United States must present their Alien Registration Card (Green Card) and valid Passports. All other Guests must have valid passports and valid visas at time of embarkation. For the latest information on proper travel documentation for US Citizens, please visit the official website of the US State Department.
Any guest traveling without proper identification will not be permitted to board the ship and no refund of cruise fare will be given.
For all non-U.S. Citizens (Including Canadians) travel documents will be colleted at check in by a Disney Cruise Line representative and a passport/Alien Registration Card receipt will be issued for presentation to Immigration Inspectors upon return to Port Canaveral.
What about Florida Resident Promotions?
Florida Resident Promotions are available only to Florida Residents. To receive the promotional rate, one guest in each cabin must show proof of residency. A driver's license is acceptable. Without proper proof, Guests will be responsible for the difference in fare.

Should I bring cash? Credit Cards? Foreign Currency?
Transactions aboard the ship are in U.S. dollars. In The Bahamas and the Caribbean, U.S. dollars and major credit cards are accepted almost everywhere. But you won't need to bring much cash (except for shore side purchases), because Disney Cruise Line has a convenient 'cash-free' system on board the ship. When you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort or at the Disney Cruise Line Terminal at Port Canaveral, your signature will be requested for check-in. At this time you may also present a credit card which will give you charging privileges at both the Walt Disney World Resort and aboard the ship. Any purchases on the ship, including beverage services, spa, salon services, photography, medical and laundry services, purchases from our retail shops, gratuities, and any item or service of a personal nature must be charged to your room charge.
All charges must be settled before your resort departure and debarkation from the ship by cash, personal check, travelers checks, Disney Dollars, American Express®, MasterCard®, Visa®, or The Disney Credit Card. (Any other expenses are payable on demand.)
