There are a few different ways to get the form to start the application process for a Canadian passport. You can find an application form at any Canada Post outlet or Service Canada Centre. You also have the choice of visiting a service location for passports in person, download and print off a form from Passport Canada or use their convenient Passport On-line option.
To obtain a Passport you will need two Passport photos taken of you either in black and white or color. Most places can do this within a matter of ten minutes. A guarantor must sign and complete the “Declaration of Guarantor” section of your application form and sign at least one of your photos. You will also need to complete all applicable sections of the application form including your personal information, proof of Canadian citizenship which can be in the form of a Canadian birth certificate or a Certificate of Canadian Citizenship. If you were born outside of Canada you must provide one of the following: a Certificate of Canadian Citizenship, Certificate of Naturalization in Canada, Certificate of Retention of Canadian citizenship or Certificate of Registration of Birth Abroad.
You will also need documents to support your identity which would include: Provincial driver’s licence, Provincial health care card, other provincial identification card, Certificate of Indian Status, Old Age Security card, other federal identification card, Federal, provincial or municipal employee identification card, or a previous Canadian passport. This proof for the Canadian citizenship and identification to support identity will be photocopied and given back to you if you are applying in person at one of the service centers or Passport offices. If you are mailing in your application form you may submit original documents or photocopies, but you must have your guarantor sign and date the photocopies to indicate the originals have been seen.
Once you have gathered all that information you are ready to submit your application. With Passport On-line you will find the link at Passport Canada. You will need to register with epass Canada which is basically creating a user name and password. Then with your epass login, you can complete the form online. If you don’t have time to fill it out all at once, you do have 60 days to come back and complete it. It takes approximately 20 to 40 minutes to fill it out. Then once the on-line portion is completed, print the form and sign it. Then have your guarantor sign the form and one of the two passport photos you have. You are then ready to go to one of the Passport service locations. Because you have filled out the application online you will have a better advantage than filling out an application by hand. Passport On-line will not let you finish unless the information is completed correctly so the officer’s know that your application is completed. From personal experience, if you do have access to a computer, this is a much faster and easier way to get through the lines and get processed quicker without spending your day at the service locations.
If you are applying in person at a Passport Canada office, the processing time will be approximately 2 weeks or 10 working days. If you submit to either a Service Canada Centre or Canada Post and Service Canada Receiving Agents Program processing time will take approximately 6 weeks. So it is best to get your passport sooner rather than closer to your trip and allow for extra processing time.
To obtain urgent, express or pick-up services you must apply in person at a Passport Canada office and provide Passport Canada with the additional documentation such as an airline, bus or train ticket, a travel itinerary which shows proof of payment or a written statement, if traveling by car (the validation of the statement is at the Passport Officer’s discretion). Passport Canada will then take the appropriate action on a case-by-case basis. The processing time for an urgent passport is within 24 hours. Express is approximately 2 to 9 working days after the receipt of the application or Pick-up is approximately 10 working days after the application has been submitted.
Yes, Disney offers specials on hotel rooms and tickets from time to time. If you are looking for a discount there are two places you can check, the first place is the DisneyMagic community site and the second is Mousesavers.com. The discounts are usually not available year round, so check back often. Your travel agent also has access to these discounts so feel free to mention ask about or the discounts you found when you book your trip.
A hidden Mickey is an image of Mickey Mouse found in a design of a Disney attraction. Hidden Mickeys started out as an inside joke among the Walt Disney Imagineers that have been involved in the design and construction process. It soon became a tradition and as the word spread, more and more Disney fans went searching for the Hidden Mickeys.
Hidden Mickeys can take many forms. Originally it took the shape of the classic tri-circle head with ears, but he can also be found in other images that include a side or oblique profile of Mickey’s face and head, a side profile of his entire body, a full-body frontal silhouette, a detailed picture of his face and body, or a three-dimensional Mickey. Sometimes, just his gloves, handprints, shoes or ears appear. Even his name or initials can be found in unusual places. It can be a fun challenge to spot the hidden Mickeys during your stay. From your Resort, to the parks, to the restaurants and other areas you will be sure to find one.
If the ride line up is too long, the FastPass will come in handy. Use your entrance ticket to the parks to get a pass with a designated time to the ride. Then go and enjoy another attraction and simply return within the time that is stated on the FastPass and enter the FastPass line to the ride. The times for the FastPass are listed on a sign so there is no guessing as to how long you will have to wait to get on the attraction. You cannot have more than one FastPass for the same time.
The Key to the World card is just that. It acts as your hotel room key, your identification as a Disney Resort guest and your resort room charge card (if you use a charge card to check-in to the resort). Depending on what options you have purchased on your Magic Your Way tickets it is also used for you theme park admission or your Disney Dining Plan credits card. Every guests registered to stay in the room receives a card that is personalized with the dates of your stay, name, account numbers and acknowledgement of the Disney Dining Plan.
When using the Key to the World for theme park admission each member must use their own card to enter. The first time you use it at the turnstiles, you will get your fingerprint scanned which will record your biometric data. If anyone else uses you card, it will not work. You can also use the Key to the World to get FastPasses in the park if you have your theme park admission on the card. If you have the Disney Dining Plan credits on the card, you will need to present the card to the server to redeem your credits. The card is needed to show your resort ID when approaching the guardhouse at the resort in a car. You will need the card when you are entering the parks for early morning Extra Magic Hours or evening Extra Magic Hours. The other great thing about the card is you can charge anything at any theme park to it. Once you check-out of your resort room you will be given a bill with all the charges that will directly be charged to your credit card. No need for cash any more.
On selected days of the week, guests will be able to take advantage of a selected theme park to be open one hour earlier in the morning or typically three hours later in the evening beyond regularly scheduled operating hours. This option is only offered to guests staying at the Disney World Resorts, the Swan and Dolphin Resorts, Hilton Resort at Downtown Disney and Shades of Green.
Morning Extra Magic Hour happens one hour prior to regularly scheduled park opening. If the park is scheduled to open at 9 am, the Extra Magic Hour begins at 8 am. Transportation to the park with the scheduled Extra Magic Hour will begin 30 minutes earlier than the opening time. Your Key to the World Card will need to be shown at the park’s turnstiles.
Evening Extra Magic Hour extend three hours beyond a parks’ scheduled closing time. There will be designated locations in the theme park that will be handing out wrist bands approximately two hours prior to park close. To obtain one you will need to show your Key to the World card. Then enjoy the extra time in the park.
If you are interested in printing out one of the maps on our site, simply click the link to that particular map. Then click the File menu at the top left hand of your screen and then print. Don’t forget to set up your printer options if they already haven’t been. You will then get a bright and colorful or black and white copy of the map depending on if your printer prints out black and white or color copies.

Magical Gathering is an innovative program with new products and services designed for larger travel groups planning a vacation at Disney World. Magical Gathering vacations are designed to make vacation planning easy for larger parties to travel together. Whether you’re bringing together friends from across the country or family members, plan a great vacation for everyone by taking advantage of the tools that Disney World has to offer.
First thing you will need to do is choose the favorites you’re going to see and do. Organize and save everything into your own personal itinerary. You can get free, full color, keepsake-quality customized Park maps delivered right to your home. You will receive helpful planning tips and reminders. You will get the Backstage Pass which is your monthly source for news, features, special offers, fun games, downloads and more. You can also add flight information for Disney’s Magical Express Service. Start now by ordering a Vacation Planning Kit for members of your party.
Next decide the best time for everyone. Plan your gathering around the days that are special to you and your family and friends. You may want to choose one Resort hotel for your entire group. This way, no one’s ever far away and it’s easy to gather everyone in the morning or after a day in the parks. Or choose hotels that fit different tastes and budgets. It’s best to book as early as possible so room arrangements can be made to fit all your needs.
Now you’ve got the people, you know the time and the place, so book online or simply have the planner in your group call (407)WDW-MAGIC or your Travel Agent to get started on planning your Magical Gatherings vacation.
If you know what day you want to go to the meal, it is best if you use the Advance Reservation. This is a system that Disney World uses to manage the restaurant seating flow. A table will be reserved for you at a particular time and the advance reservation guarantees you the next available table.
Contact your travel agent, Central Reservations Office at (407) 934-7639 or WDW Dining at (407)393-3463. You can also make an Advance Reservation at any Resort Lobby Concierge desk.
Professional photographers are stationed around Disney World and are waiting to capture your family’s vacation memories. They can be found throughout the four Theme Parks, in both Water Parks as well as the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. At your first picture taking session of your vacation, the photographer will hand you Disney’s Photopass card. This card is free of charge, but the photos that you want printed need to be purchased. Present your PhotoPass card to the photographer each time you have your picture taken. The Cast Members will organize your photos digitally and keep them for a period of time.
You can then go on-line and enter the ID number that is on the back of your PhotoPass card. This will give you access to view the personal photos of your trip. You then have a choice to purchase high-quality 5x7, 8x10 and wallet-sized prints. For a fun way to share your memories with others, you can purchase other products such as Photo greeting cards and PhotoBooks. Make the memories even more magical by enhancing the photos with exclusive Disney borders. If you do not have internet access, no worries, you can still go to one of the stations found around the theme parks and view your photos there. You then have the chance to purchase the prints and other photo products. This is a much more convenient way than what it used to be. The photographers used to give you paper id for every picture that they took, then it seemed like you would be standing in line throughout the day to choose if you wanted to print the photos off or not. The PhotoPass cards have made the lines shorter to view them while at the theme parks or if you want to enjoy your trip and not worry about the photos until later, you can view them in the comforts of your own home.
Magic Your Way is a program that will allow you to customize your vacation based on what you want and can afford. This applies to both one-day and multi-day passports and begins with a ‘Base Ticket’ (also known as a ‘Starter Pass’). Start out by choosing how many days you want your Base Ticket for. The Base Ticket admits you to one Disney theme park per day. There are three add-on options that are offered with the Base Ticket, each at an additional cost.
Adding the ‘Park Hopping’ feature allows you to visit more than one theme park per day and you are free to hop from park to park if that is what you want to do. If you want to start out in Magic Kingdom in the morning and end up at Epcot in the evening you can do so. Adding the ‘No Expiration Date’ option to your ticket means that unused admissions to the theme parks will never expire. If you added this option to a Ten-day Base Ticket and used only four days this year, the remaining six days could be used for admission at a future date. The ‘Water Park Fun and More’ option are single admissions to Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon, DisneyQuest, Disney’s Wide World of Sports, or Pleasure Island. The number of admissions per ticket is tied to the number of day’s admission you buy. If you have a Ten-day Base Ticket and only want to visit the water parks twice, it may be more economical to buy an individual admission at any of those minor parks.
Yes there are lockers available and can be rented for a small fee per day. There will be a sign clearly marked as to where you need to pay for the lockers and where they are located. Once you return your key you do get a small fee back for the key deposit. If you are visiting more than one park in a day and still want a locker in another park without paying a locker fee, just make sure you get a receipt. Then in the next park present the receipt and only pay the key deposit.
The answer is a huge YES! Most attractions, resorts, restaurants, shops and shows are accessible to all guests. In some cases, guests may need the assistance of a member of their party to fully utilize these areas. At some attractions guests using wheelchairs may need to transfer from their wheelchairs onto the ride systems. Cast members are not permitted to physically transfer guests, but if you are traveling with someone that will help you, that is fine.
Disney World has put together a Guidebook for Guests with Disabilities. This provides a detailed overview of the services and facilities available for guests with disabilities and is available at Guest Relations locations within all four Parks as well as the Resorts. Outlined in the guidebook are the services and facilities available for guests with disabilities, information about parking, restrooms, auxiliary aids, telephones, transportation facilities and specific attraction entrance and boarding procedures. Additionally guests with specific disability concerns can visit Guest Relations at any of the theme parks for additional information and assistance. The Cast Members are always happy to speak with you and will help you in any way they can.
There are many great benefits to staying on-site at Disney World property. With your Key to the World Card you will be able to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours. Disney’s Magical Express Service will be available to you as soon as you step off the plane. It is a complimentary service that shuttles you and your luggage from the airport to your Resort.

Disney World and Expectant Mothers
First and foremost, the DisneyMagic community would like to congratulate you on your pregnancy. Now down to business; you found out you are pregnant, however you have plans to visit the most wonderful place on Earth…Disney World! No need to change the plans, there is still many wonderful things that pregnant women can do at Disney World. Precautions will need to be taken and you will need to listen to your own body, but it can be done.
When to Go
When deciding to go to Disney World, you will want to consider how far along in the pregnancy you will be. Most women feel best from the fourth through to the seventh months, sometimes longer. If there is going to be any concerns or difficulties with the pregnancy, normally they are either during the first or third trimester. In the third trimester, you may be getting uncomfortable doing normal activities because of your growing belly. You may have travel restrictions closer to your due date. Please check with your doctor to receive his or her recommendations as well.
Flying or long car rides while pregnant have some additional considerations for your comfort and safety. Besides the normal pregnancy swelling, there is an increased risk of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT), a rare condition where blood clots form in the leg and pelvic areas, due to being seated or immobile for long periods of time. To help avoid discomfort, drink plenty of fluids before and during your trip, walk and stretch whenever possible, keep your feet on the floor and avoid crossing your legs or feet, and wear loose clothes.
Where to Stay
There are many cheap places to stay outside of the Disney World Resort area; however this may be a great time to splurge for a resort on the Disney property. With convenient access to the parks and back to the room for naps, staying at a Disney resort is hard to beat. Another benefit is the larger array of activities and amenities at the deluxe resorts. If you are not feeling up to going to the parks, there is still plenty to do, see and eat without leaving the resort. Room service can be a bonus when you just can’t stand the smell of food cooking. The counter service and sit-down restaurants can be very accommodating to special requests so don’t be afraid to ask. The large queen-size beds are a great plus for getting comfortable or you can certainly ask for a king-size bed in the moderate resorts. Another perk, housekeeping will be more than happy to bring you extra pillows and blankets.
Tips for the Parks
The heat and humidity of Florida can be tiring for anyone. When you are pregnant extra care and caution must be taken to keep yourself hydrated and not overdo it. Consider drinking lots of water, putting your feet up whenever possible, and stopping whenever you start to feel tired.
For keeping yourself hydrated, you will find it less expensive and easier to bring your own water bottles. A quick stop at a supermarket or store before you arrive will save you the $2.50 per bottle charged on the property. You will be able to keep drinks cold in your room in the moderate and deluxe resorts. When booking a room, check to make sure there is a refrigerator in your suite.
Of course with all the water you will be drinking, it is especially hard on pregnant bladders. Busy times of the years, those long lines are everywhere, including the ladies washrooms. Carry a map and don’t wait until nature calls. If you know you are going to be waiting in a long line up, go before you start standing.
Bring light-weight breathable fabrics in lighter colors for maximum comfort. You will also want to pack a light sweater as the air conditioning can get uncomfortably cool. Comfortable shoes are a must for everyone. If your feet tend to swell, bring an extra pair that may fit you if that happens. Depending on how far along you are, you may find that a pregnancy belt that supports your belly helps prevent backaches too.
Don’t forget your swim suit as well. Hot tubs and saunas are usually prohibited by your doctor, but a quick dip in the resort pool and be cool and refreshing. The buoyancy of the water will lighten your load at least temporarily. If you were told no pools at all, there are always the fountains that the kids splash in to cool you down.
Other things to consider packing are your doctor’s phone and fax numbers, your health insurance card, prenatal vitamins, and any other prescriptions or medications you may be taking. If you are using a special pillow at home, bring that along too. Pack some crackers or other snack foods and a water bottle in your purse or carry-on in case of delays or sudden bouts of hunger or nausea.
Rides that you will need to avoid
Magic Kingdom: Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Tomorrowland Indy Speedway
Epcot: Body Wars, Mission: Space!, Test Track
Animal Kingdom: Kilimanjaro Safaris, Kali River Rapids, Primeval Whirl, Dinosaur, Expedition Everest
Disney-MGM Studios: Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, Star Tours
Water Parks: Water slides are off limits to pregnant women. Although those might be off limits, there are still the wave pools and floating creeks that are great for getting the weight off your feets.
Tips from Expectant Mothers that have vacationed at Disney World
- Go over your Disney Vacation plans with your doctor before your trip.
- Be prepared to do a lot of walking. Get in shape by walking at home, gradually building up endurance and distance.
- Get as much rest as you need, even if you have to sacrifice some time at the theme parks.
- Eat properly. Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
- Use in-park transportation whenever available to cut down on walking.
- Stay in Disney World resorts if possible. It will make it easier to return to your hotel for rest.
- Pace yourself at the parks.
- Invest in a maternity bathing suit and during your breaks, spend some time in the pool at your hotel.
- Don’t let the ride attendants be your guide on going on rides. If you aren’t sure about a ride, send a family member on it first to hear what there opinion on the ride is.
