Disney cruise from Vancouver

We are hoping to cruise on Disneys Wonder this summer. We live in WA, and wanting to know if an enhanced drivers license will work to get on the boat. No passport and hoping not to have to get one. Has anyone used an EDL to cruise from Vancouver before or lately. Thx!

It works fine as long as you're arriving by car. It's on your land and sea crossings that it works the best

I thought that you would need a US passport to re-enter the US from Canada post cruise? Unless you have a passport you could not take any of the longer White Pass & Yukon Railway trips from Skagway but could still take the one to the top of the Pass and back down again as that is all in Alaska. Over the Pass and you enter BC and then on into the Yukon.

Frommy, not always. States and provinces now have other alternatives for Canadians and Americans.

From the Homeland Security site.

"State-issued enhanced drivers licenses (EDLs) provide proof of identity and U.S. citizenship, are issued in a secure process, and include technology that makes travel easier. They provide travelers with a low-cost, convenient alternative for entering the United States from Canada, Mexico or the Caribbean through a land or sea port of entry, in addition to serving as a permit to drive."

from Disney Cruise site.

"U.S. CITIZENS

All Guests claiming U.S. citizenship must present the following as proof of U.S. citizenship:

A valid U.S. Passport

A valid U.S. Passport Card

A valid state-issued Enhanced Driver's License - this is a special type of license that provides proof of identity and US citizenship; not all states offer Enhanced Driver's Licenses - please visit http://www.getyouhome.gov for more information

A valid Trusted Traveler Card (NEXUS, SENTRI, FAST)

Government-issued photo ID along with one of the following:

Original or copy of their state issued birth certificate

Consular Report of Birth Abroad issued by the Department of State,

Certificate of Naturalization issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Guests under the age of 16 may present one of the following:

Original or copy of their state issued birth certificate

Consular Report of Birth Abroad issued by the Department of State

Naturalization Certificate issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services"

Thanks for clarifying that for me rustproof. It is just that this question comes up all the time in relation to Skagway and the advice from the Alaska locals is a PP.

It could depend on the company. If the locals say that company insists on a passport then I would go with that, or contact the company directly since as we know airlines insist on Passports.

You need a passport only if you're entering the US by air.
