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

    Is it no longer required that you need a covid test if sailing from Southampton UK we are sailing in August 2023

    Hello, Tania! Welcome aboard planDisney. It's great to have you sail our way. 

    You've got some exciting holiday plans for next summer and I'd love to answer your question as your prepare for adventure aboard the Disney Dream. A recent update to Disney Cruise Line policy states that beginning October 14, 2022, for sailings on the Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and Disney Wish and November 7, 2022, for sailings aboard the Disney Magic, only unvaccinated Guests ages five and older will be required to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken one to two days prior to sailing. 

    As your Disney Cruise embarks next summer, we may see a change in policy between now and then. I recommend that you keep an eye on the Guide to Updated Experiences section of the Disney Cruise Line website as your cruise date draws near. You will also receive updated communication from Disney Cruise Line via email if any changes will affect your sailing.

    As always, you can sail back to planDisney if you'd like clarification on anything. My pals and I are here to help! In the meantime, you can catch us at @plandisneypanel on Instagram with the latest tips and tricks for Disney destinations and aboard Disney Cruise Line. We even have a planDisney podcast with monthly episodes. 

    Be sure to have the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app downloaded to your personal device. You can check your cruise countdown regularly as you anticipate the fun! You can also use the app to reserve cruise activities when your booking window opens and to check in to your cruise 30 days before your voyage begins. 

    Thanks again for visiting planDisney and Happy Planning,
