KTTW cards and children

Ok, newbie with a few questions....

Normally at WDW my DS 11 carries a KTTWC. I recently gave him charging privileges and he likes to unlock the door when we get back to the room. Other than opening the stateroom door and making purchases, what are the KTTW needed for. I'm also asking for myself--like what other id do I need to carry walking around the ship. Do my other children need them (6 and 9)?

Secondly, when registering for activities online, they mentioned children's activities. Does this include registering them for the kids clubs or is that done onboard?

Lastly, if I wanted to purchase a rainforest package for my MIL and mom, can I do that online?

Thanks for all your help!

The KTTW card is used as a room key and for purchases onboard (gift shop, bars/lounges, photos). And can be used to load the arcade cards. Be aware that there have been reports of older kids in the arcades getting younger kids (with charging still on their cards) to load up the older child's arcade card.

They are also used when departing and re-boarding the ship in port. As well as ID onboard. Everyone needs their KTTW card and those 16 and over will also need a photo ID (drivers license or passport, for example). Onboard, you will need your KTTW card to purchase items at the gift shops, bars, photos, when signing up for things like tastings, mixology, etc.

You can pre-register your child during your online checkin process. Or wait and do it onboard. It does take some time, so it's generally better to do it ahead of time - one note, when selecting your "secret password" remember it. There have been reports of people, once they actually get on the ship, forgetting what the password was they used to register the child several months earlier.

Great. So when leaving the ship, I will need the childrens passports and their KTTW cards. I don't carry the two younger childrens cards while at Disney. Sounds like I should have these on me at all times.

Thanks!

You won't need the children's passports, unless they are 16 and over. Only their KTTW cards.

If they are under 18, you only need the KTTW card getting on/off the ship. You may certainly take their PP if you wish but it is not necessary.

Since your DS is 11, there won't be an option for you to be able to check him into the club online. If you want him to go to the lab, you can register him in the terminal or at the lab after you board. If they will be going to Edge, you don't need to register them at all. The kids can come and go on their own without checking into the area.
