You can now upload your passport, a photo, etc when you do your online check in to skip the line.

At the port you will be required to undergo a rapid test at the cost of $98 PP if you either do not upload your vaccination card or are not vaccinated.

Thanks for posting this! Do you know if the fee applies to kids too?
DCL will only charge the embarkation day testing fee for those 12 and older.

A negative pre-cruise (5 days to 24 hours prior to sail date) PCR test is required for for those under 12, those not vaccinated, or those that don't want to provide their vaccine status.

NOTE: DCL is not accepting proof of vaccine for non-US citizens sailing from FL. Pre-cruise and embarkation day testing is required.

Is this for US sailings only or for European ones also ?
These are specifically for cruises out of FL. The UK staycation cruises have their own protocols.

Full details for FL cruises can be found here: https://disneycruise.disney.go.com/why-cruise-disney/experience-updates/us/

  • Pre-Trip COVID-19 Testing: Guests must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test (paid for at the Guest’s expense) taken between 5 days and 24 hours prior to the sail date. Disney Cruise Line has secured a special rate of $98.33 per PCR test (which includes a 3.5% processing fee) through our third-party vendor, Inspire Diagnostics. Guests may also obtain their PCR test from any independent testing supplier. Guests who are fully vaccinated may choose to provide proof of vaccination instead of undergoing COVID19 pre-trip testing. To learn more about how to provide proof of your negative COVID-19 PCR test result, please visit: Before Leaving Home: Know Before You Go.
  • Embarkation COVID-19 Testing: Guests are required to undergo a rapid PCR COVID-19 test administered by Inspire Diagnostics at the terminal prior to boarding. Guests with positive COVID-19 test results, as well as those in their travel party, will be denied boarding. The $65 test fee will be charged to the folio of all Guests 12 years and older. Disney Cruise Line acts as the paying agent for Inspire Diagnostics and will remit the entire cost of the COVID-19 test to Inspire Diagnostics. Guests who are fully vaccinated may choose to provide proof of vaccination instead of undergoing COVID-19 Embarkation Day testing.
