This morning the Disney Cruise Line website was updated to note that beginning January 13, 2022, the Disney Cruise Line will require the Covid-19 vaccine for all guests ages 5 & up.
You can see the official announcement here:
“Currently, Disney Cruise Line continues to require all vaccine-eligible Guests (based on US eligibility requirements) to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as defined by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at the time of sailing. This will be a requirement for all Guests (US and international) ages 5 and up for sailings beginning on or after January 13, 2022. Guests who are not vaccine-eligible because of age must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result (paid for by the Guest) taken between 3 days and 24 hours before their sail date. Guests ages 5 through 11 may complete this testing requirement in lieu of being fully vaccinated for sailings that depart before January 13, 2022. Guests 4 years of age and under must complete the testing requirements. The test should be a NAAT test, rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test. Rapid antigen tests are not accepted.” – Disney Cruise Line
Previously guests 12 and up had to have the vaccine. With children age 5 & up now allowed to get the Covid-19 vaccine, it isn’t surprising the cruise line has updated its policy.
