    Do I need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to sail on a Disney ship?

    Hi there, Adrienne! Welcome to planDisney. It's great to have you on board with us. 

    I'm so happy that you are planning a Disney Vacation at sea! Disney Cruises really are the best. The magic onboard is available for guests of every age. I can't wait for you to discover it all. At this time, Disney Cruise Line recommends that guests are vaccinated against COVID-19, however, it is not a requirement to sail. For more information, please review the Guide to Updated Experiences page on the Disney Cruise Line website. 

    When it comes to preparing for your Disney Cruise, there are a few important dates to keep in mind. Your activity booking window is the date that you can begin to book Port Adventures, Spa Treatments, Nursery Reservations, and Adult-exclusive dining reservations. If this is your first Disney Cruise, this will be 75 days before your sail date. If you are a returning guest of Disney Cruise Line, welcome back! Your booking window will depend on your Castaway Club status. 

    Online check-in for your cruise will open 30 days before sailing. This is also when complimentary tickets for the Royal Gathering onboard are available to reserve. The Royal Gathering is a chance to meet with several Disney Princesses in succession. If you are interested but unable to reserve a spot for the Royal Gathering before you board, inquire at the Guest Services Desk after you board to see if additional times are open. 

    I hope those tips and important dates are helpful as you prepare for your adventure with Captain Mickey and Captain Minnie! It's going to be an incredible vacation. Please sail our way again if you have more questions. My pals and I would love to help. 

    Happy Planning,
