BREAKING: Face Coverings Optional in Most Indoor Locations on Disney Cruise Ships Starting March 11

Staring March 11, face coverings will be optional in most indoor locations aboard Disney Cruise Line ships. Read the announcement from Disney Cruise Line below.

Following recently updated guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we have updated our face covering requirements for sailings originating from a U.S. port of departure. Beginning March 11, face coverings on Disney Cruise Line will become optional in most indoor locations throughout our ships.

Guests ages 2 and up, including those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, will still be required to wear face coverings in the Walt Disney Theatre. Guests under 5 years of age who are currently ineligible to be vaccinated will be required to wear face coverings in Youth Activities spaces and in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique; and, while not required, we continue to strongly recommend these Guests wear a face covering in all other indoor locations.

Face coverings may be required in ports of call based on local government requirements, including in some areas at Disney Castaway Cay. Masks should also be worn in the cruise terminal during the boarding and screening process, as well as during disembarkation.

SeaMail about this change will be sent to Guests on the following sailings beginning at 1 p.m. today:

  • Disney Wonder – March 11 to April 17, 2022
  • Disney Magic – March 11 to May 8, 2022
  • Disney Fantasy – March 11 to May 28, 2022
  • Disney Dream – March 11 to May 30, 2022
