Before you go on a Disney Cruise Line cruise you need to be aware of the updated COVID 19 test guidelines prior to sailing.

Those guidelines have now been updated with the type of tests that are acceptable:

Between 3 Days and 24 Hours before setting sail

Guests 11 years of age or under must take a pre-trip COVID-19 PCR test (performed at Guest’s expense). The test should be a NAAT test, rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test.  Rapid antigen tests are not accepted.  Learn more about Pre-Trip testing options available from Inspire Diagnostics by visiting Before Leaving Home: Know Before You Go.

Upload your pre-trip COVID-19 PCR test results or proof of vaccination to the Safe Passage website by Inspire Diagnostics to ensure your account indicates those in your travel party are clear to arrive at the port. A parent or legal guardian must use their own account to submit test results or proof of vaccinations on behalf of their children under the age of 18 before sailing.

Keep this in mind if you are cruising in the near future.
