And for triple checking clarity, the DCL website has now been corrected too:

For sailings aboard the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Wish and Disney Wonder, beginning September 23, 2022 (and aboard the Disney Magic beginning November 7, 2022), fully vaccinated Guests will no longer be required to submit COVID-19 test results in order to sail.”

I ended up with COVID when we disembarked off the Fantasy two weeks ago. I had very mild symptoms because I was vaccinated. In my personal experience, while stressful to test, I think the company was trying to do the right thing based on the info available. I’m not a Disney apologist by any stretch, I’ll call them out when need be (I’m looking at you Individual Lightning Lane). This is a fair compromise for now.

Yeah, does this now mean no more uploading of the vax information?

DCL now says you only need to register for sailings through November 13, 2022.

Haven't yet been on a Disney cruise. I now have more incentive to go on one.

DCL updated their COVID-19 testing information today for sailings beginning June 7. This is for US sailings - I didn't look at the policy for sailings out of other ports. I haven't received any e-mails about the change yet, but I would imagine that they'll be sending them out soon so they don't end up with a bunch of angry guests who only learned of the change when they arrived at the port.


Fully vaccinated Guests on sailings departing US and Canadian ports on or after June 7, 2022, must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result (paid for by the Guest) taken no more than 2 days before setting sail to be exempt from embarkation testing at the terminal. Pre-trip test results must be uploaded into the Safe Passage website by midnight prior to embarkation day. The test must be a rapid antigen test professionally observed by a medical professional or telehealth provider, a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), a rapid PCR test or a lab-based PCR test. Completing pre-trip testing prior to embarkation day enhances the efficiency of boarding and confirms that you are negative for COVID-19 prior to traveling to the terminal. Guests can purchase COVID-19 tests through our third-party vendor, Inspire Diagnostics, or obtain a test from any independent testing supplier. Beginning June 7, 2022, fully vaccinated Guests who do not upload pre-trip test results to the Safe Passage website by midnight prior to embarkation day will be tested at the terminal before boarding and will be charged for the cost of the test. The cost of embarkation tests for fully vaccinated Guests will be $74.00 (USD) plus tax for the initial antigen test, and, if needed, $125.00 (USD) plus tax for a confirmatory PCR test, charged at the time of service. For Canada sailings, the cost of embarkation tests for fully vaccinated Guests will be $95.00 (CAD) plus GST for the initial antigen test, and, if needed, $160.00 (CAD) plus GST for a confirmatory PCR test, charged at the time of service. Embarkation testing for Guests 4 years of age and under who are not vaccine-eligible because of age will be paid for by Disney Cruise Line.

Well, I enjoyed my one cruise! Glad I didn’t put money down on the next one while on board. I’ll sit back and watch how things go for a minute first. Hopefully this is all moot in a couple of years.
