Following recently updated guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Disney Cruise Line is updating its face covering requirements for sailings originating from a U.S. port of departure.
Beginning March 11th, face coverings on Disney Cruise Line will become optional in most indoor locations throughout its ships.
Guests ages 2 and up, including those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, will still be required to wear face coverings in the Walt Disney Theatre. Guests under 5 years of age who are currently ineligible to be vaccinated will be required to wear face coverings in Youth Activities spaces and in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique; and, while not required, Disney Cruise Line will continue to strongly recommend that these guests wear a face covering in all other indoor locations.
It’s important to note that face coverings may be required in ports of call based on local government requirements, including in some areas at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island in The Bahamas. Masks should also be worn in the cruise terminal during the boarding and screening process, as well as during disembarkation.
