    Sarah from MT Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Since the CDC has changed their recommendations to include children from 6 months to 5 years of age for COVID vaccines will Disney also change requirements? If my child is vaccinated do they follow the adult guidelines for testing/masking?

    Hey there, Sarah! Welcome, and thank you for your question.

    Disney Cruise Line has closely monitored global health situations and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control since cruising restarted. As it becomes necessary to make changes based on the ever-evolving suggestions for cruise line protocols, Disney Cruise Line will update the Know Before You Go page of the website, so the latest information will be available for you.  

    As of today, if you look at the Covid-19 vaccination requirements, you'll see that all guests ages 5 and older are required to be vaccinated, per CDC recommendations. Definitely make sure you've downloaded the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App, which will allow you easy access to information pertaining to your sailing. 

    Children who are vaccinated will follow the same rules as adults regarding masks and testing. Again, with your sailing still a few months away, keep an eye on that Know Before You Go page, just in case there are changes.

    Don't forget, Sarah, when you do your online check-in, you can pre-register your kids for the Youth Clubs onboard. Once you get to the terminal, you'll just visit the youth club counselors for wristbands and information, and your kids can drop into the club anytime they want. 

    I hope you feel shipshape and ready to sail, Sarah. If we can help with anything else, just sail on back.
