    We want to plan a trip for July, but we want to know if we need to get covid tested before we get in? What about my two year old son will he have too?

    Hi Isabel! Welcome to planDisney.

    I am counting down the days to my family's Disney trip, and I am beside myself with excitement! Cooling off with Mickey-shaped ice cream treats, adventuring with pirates, happy haunts, and Wookiees, and laughing with my family all day long - bring on summer vacation!

    The most recent Update on Disneyland Resort Operations outlines the current health, safety, and operational guidance for Guests planning their visits. Effective June 15, 2021, the state of California's guidance is that Guests should be fully vaccinated or receive a negative COVID-19 test prior to entering the theme parks. When making your Theme Park Reservations for your visit, you will need to attest that you are aware of this guidance and in compliance. Since your two-year-old cannot be vaccinated, the decision to test your child is at your discretion, and I recommend making the decision based on advice from your doctor. 

    Unvaccinated Guests ages 2 and older must wear face coverings in indoor locations (except when dining) and on bus transportation. Please carefully read the Update (linked above) to ensure you understand the guidance and know what you are agreeing to when you make your plans. As a mom, I'm of the mindset that measures like testing, face coverings, and hand washing that are aimed at keeping my kiddo and other Guests safe are good ideas, and I plan to fully comply during our upcoming vacation. My vaccinated tween is on board too!

    I hope that helps as you determine whether July is a good time for your visit. For all the latest news and updates, keep an eye on the Returning to a Land of Magic webpage and the Disney Parks Blog.

    Have a great Disney day!
