Disney Cruise Lines has just announced that they will no longer need Proof of a Negative Negative COVID-19 Test to sail regardless of your vaccination status.
This applies only to Disney Cruise Line ship departures from the United States and this applies to sailings from November 14, 2022, onwards.
Whilst this will be welcome news for some it will not be to others and therefore Disney has recognized this by updating their cancellation policy for sailings through January 31, 2023.
If you are booked on a sailing departing from the US from November 14, 2022, through January 31, 2023, may modify or cancel your sailing by November 13, 2022, without any Disney-imposed cancellation fees.
Whilst Disney Cruise Line will not impose cancellation fees if you meet these criteria you may be charged change and cancellation fees imposed by third-party suppliers, such as airlines and hotels, as well as travel insurance, are not refundable.
This is the email that is going out to guests:
