No More Adult Covid Tests for Disney Cruise Line

WE FINALLY HAVE THE NEWS WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR! Regardless of your stance on vaccination and testing this portion of cruising Disney has left many completely stressed before their cruise.

An email was sent out today, 8/29/22, outlining the new policy. Starting September, 23 2022 fully vaccinated guests sailing aboard the Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and the Disney Wish departing from the USA will no longer be required to get a COVID-19 test prior to boarding. You will still need to upload proof of vaccination to the Safe Passage website prior to sailing. See below for the full announcement:


"Earlier this month, we communicated that beginning on September 2, 2022, for sailings departing U.S. and Canadian ports, Disney Cruise Line will only require Guests ages 12 and older to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at the time of sailing, as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


Additionally, beginning September 23, 2022, for Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and Disney Wish sailings departing the U.S., fully vaccinated Guests are no longer required to participate in COVID-19 testing. Unvaccinated Guests (ages 11 and younger) will need to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken 1-3 days before the sail date. Unvaccinated Guests will no longer be required to complete a second COVID-19 test at the terminal on embarkation day. Acceptable vaccines and testing information for Guests ages 11 and younger can be found in the Know Before You Go section of DisneyCruise.com."

All people ages 12 and older have to be vaccinated to sail Disney Cruise Line so if you qualify to sail as an adult you no longer need to submit to testing. Children ages 11 and younger that are not fully vaccinated will still need to get a Covid test 1-3 days before sailing. See below for more information on uploading Proof of Vaccination / COVID-19 Test Results:


"In order to sail, all guests 12 and older (who are required to be vaccinated), plus those under 12 that are vaccinated, must upload their proof of vaccination to the Inspire Diagnostics Safe Passage website by midnight prior to embarkation day. Unvaccinated Guests must upload a negative COVID-19 test result to the Inspire Diagnostics Safe Passage website by midnight prior to embarkation day. Uploading these documents is a requirement for adults and children, regardless of age. A parent or legal guardian will need to use their own account to provide this information on behalf of minors. To learn more about how to provide proof of your negative COVID-19 test result, please visit Before Leaving Home: Know Before You Go.


After appropriate documents have been uploaded and reviewed by Inspire, Guests should see the words “Clear to Arrive” or “Clear to Sail” in the Pre-Sail Screening section when they log into their Safe Passage account before arriving at the port.


It is also recommended that Guests bring a copy of their proof of vaccination or negative COVID- test result with them to the port. Guests who fail to upload proof of vaccination and/or COVID-19 test results may be delayed or denied boarding. If you have any questions about your Safe Passage registration or status, please contact Inspire Diagnostics at 877-250-5132."
