    Do we take a covid test at the port or a few days before? And does it charge?

    Hello again, Sonia! My pals and I are glad you are utilizing the planDisney panel as you prepare for your adventure with the Disney Cruise Line. 

    I'd love to share with you the current requirements for pre-cruise testing. I want to let you know that the requirements may change between now and your sail date this fall, so it's important that you keep an eye on the Guide to Updated Experiences page on the Disney Cruise Line website for up-to-date information regarding your sailing. The requirements have changed a few times and they may change again. So please check the website as your cruise approaches. 

    As of today, fully vaccinated Guests on sailings departing from U.S. ports need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than two days prior to their sail date. The test must be one of the following tests:

    - A rapid antigen test professionally observed by a medical professional through a medical facility or telehealth provider
    - Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT)
    - Rapid PCR test
    - Lab-based PCR test

    These tests are to be paid for by the Guest and the results must be uploaded to the Safe Passage website by midnight prior to embarkation day. If you are unable to upload a test result within the necessary time frame, you will be required to be tested at the port and will need to pay the testing fee.

    The Safe Passage website will also be the site you use to upload your proof of vaccination as you prepare to set sail. I have found it to be easy to use. In preparation for my most recent cruise last month, I received email notifications from Disney Cruise Line reminding me about the steps I needed to take concerning the most recent health and safety protocols. So between checking your emails regularly and keeping an eye on the Updated Experiences page of the website, I'm sure you'll be in the loop. You can always drop us another line if you need clarification on anything. 

    One last thing, be sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app if you haven't done so already. From home, you can log in to your reservation and begin reserving activities when your advanced booking window opens (75 days prior to your sail date if this is your first Disney Cruise). You can also use the app to check in to your cruise 30 days prior to your embarkation date. I personally love opening the app frequently to view the countdown showing exactly how many days, hours, and minutes are left till the adventure begins! When you are on the ship, the app will be your navigator on board to show you when and where to find entertainment, activities, and much, much more. 

    Sonia, thank you again for reaching out to planDisney with your questions. I wish you a wonderful voyage filled with magic!

    Bon Voyage,
