Disney Cruise Line Requiring All Guests 12 and Older Be Vaccinated and Tested for COVID-19 Regardless of Destination

Disney Cruise Line has clarified their vaccination requirements to include all sailings regardless of destination. They previously were requiring all guests 12 and older be vaccinated against COVID-19 when sailing to the Bahamas but have expanded to include all sailings now that the Disney Wonder will resume sailing to Mexico.

In addition to being fully vaccinated, all guests 12 and older must take a COVID-19 test upon embarkation. Guests 11 years and under are not required to be vaccinated but must take a rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test between three days and 24 hours before their trip as well as a rapid test upon embarkation.

Rapid antigen tests are not accepted. Disney Cruise Line has secured a special rate of $98.33 per PCR test (which includes a 3.5% processing fee) through our third-party vendor, Inspire Diagnostics. Guests may also obtain their PCR test from any independent testing supplier. To submit your test results or to order a test kit, visit the Safe Passage website by Inspire Diagnostics. In order to sail, all Guests (adults and children, regardless of age) must upload their proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results on the Safe Passage website. A parent or legal guardian will need to use their own account to provide this information on behalf of minors.

  1. They word that in a confusing way. Are they charging all guests for an extra covid test at the terminal? Or is the $98.33 only for those 12 and under who are taking it prior to the cruise?

    It makes sense that it would be no additional cost if they’re requiring it at the terminal and through Inspire Diagnostics. The fact they mention the cost with the 12 and under pre-cruise test, makes me believe that’s the case.

  2. This seems excessive. I’m already vaccinated but now I have to get tested at the terminal? I just worry about what happens with false positives or false negatives. I could travel all the way to Florida and not be able to get in the boat if a test comes up positive? Even with a vaccine? Or someone who has it and comes up negative because it’s too early to test can get on anyway?

    I’m not saying we should throw caution to the wind here but you’re already requiring vaccines and masks. The test seems like too much with too many factor that could go wrong.
