Disney Cruise Line has started sailing again this summer!
The COVID-19 testing policies for guests who are sailing with Disney have changed a few times as local government policies are adjusted. Now, policies for all of Disney’s cruise ships have been updated once more with adjustments made to the COVID-19 test policy and vaccination requirements.
There have been changes made to both pre-sail COVID-19 test requirements and embarkation day test requirements.
Guests who are sailing with the Disney Cruise Line are required to make an account on the Safe Passage website, which is associated with Inspire Diagnostics (Disney’s COVID-19 test provider). This is where guests will submit their negative COVID tests prior to going to the terminal. Previously, this account could be made 33 days out from sailing. Now, guests can make this account up to 15 days before setting sail. On this website, guests can request test kits as well.
Another change to the policy is for COVID-19 testing. Previously, guests aged 11 and younger needed to submit a negative COVID-19 test that was taken between 5 days and 24 hours of sailing. Now, that window has been reduced, and guests need to provide a negative COVID-19 test that was taken between 3 days and 24 hours of sailing. As a reminder, this needs to be a rapid PCR or lab-based PCR test.
The last change is that starting tomorrow, September 3rd, all guests 12 years and old MUST be vaccinated to sail to any destination. Guests 11 years old and younger will not be required to be vaccinated, but must provide proof of a negative pre-trip test. For Panama Canal sailings, all passengers must be vaccinated.
