    Is being vaccinated optional to take a cruise!!! What medical papers do you need to board a cruise

    Hello there, Candy! Welcome to the planDisney panel. I'm so glad that you sailed our way with your question. I always aim to help my fellow guests chart a court for adventure on the Disney Cruise Line!

    Setting sail with Captains Mickey and Minnie is an extra special treat. The Disney Cruise Line delivers an amazing Guest experience with attention to detail, enchanting entertainment, delicious dining options, superb service, and incredible itineraries for every sailor that steps aboard. 

    In an effort to protect the health and safety of all of the Crew Members and Guests onboard the Disney Cruise ships, there are certain guidelines and policies in place in order to sail. At this time, Disney Cruise Line is requiring all vaccine-eligible Guests (based on US eligibility requirements) to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as defined by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at the time of sailing. This requirement is in place for all Guests ages five and older. If a Guest is not vaccine-eligible because of age, they must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken between 3 days and 24 hours before the date of sailing. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result is required for Guests ages 4 and under. Details about the test requirements can ve viewed on the Updated Experiences page of the Disney Cruise Line website.

    Prior to setting sail, you will be required to upload your proof of vaccination documents. If you have any Guests in your travel party that are under the age of 5, you will use the same system to upload the proof of a negative COVID-19 result.

    I hope that this clears up any questions that you may have in regards to sailing! If you have any further questions about planning for your upcoming cruise, please visit us again at planDisney. We are always happy to help!
