Friendly Pre-Embarkation Reminders from Disney Cruise Line – Preview of Safe Passage Website

As we sail closer to the restart date for the Disney Dream, Disney Cruise Line wants to make sure guests complete all the required steps leading up to embarkation. This includes pre-trip COVID-19 testing, embarkation COVID-19 Testing, Travel Insurance, COVID-19 Vaccination, Safe Passage Website/Registration, Online Check-In, and any transfers from OIA to the Port. Details on the various steps previously announced are highlighted below.

Pre-Trip COVID-19 Testing (if not fully vaccinated or unable to provide proof)

Guests must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test (paid for at the Guests’ expense) taken between 5 days and 24 hours prior to the sail date. 

Embarkation COVID-19 Testing (if not fully vaccinated or unable to provide proof)

Guests are required to undergo a rapid PCR COVID-19 test at the terminal prior to boarding. A $65 test fee will be charged to the folio of all Guests 12 years and older. 

Travel Insurance (if not fully vaccinated or unable to provide proof)

Guests 12 years or older must provide proof of a valid travel insurance policy that has a minimum of $10,000 per person in medical expense coverage and $30,000 coverage for emergency medical evacuation and no COVID-19 exclusions. Guests that purchase insurance from a provider other than Disney Cruise Line will need to provide proof of the insurance policy at the port, showing the name of each of the covered Guest(s) and a description of the coverage in the policy prior to receiving clearance to sail.

COVID-19 Vaccination

Guests who are fully vaccinated may choose to provide proof of vaccination in order to be exempt from the pre-trip and embarkation COVID-19 testing and travel insurance requirements. Fully vaccinated Guests who arrived from an international destination within the past 5 days must undergo the rapid PCR COVID-19 test at the terminal, paid for by Disney Cruise Line.

Safe Passage by Inspire Diagnostics Website

In order to sail, every Guest must individually create an account associated with their reservation (or reservations, for Guest with back-to-back, consecutive sailings) on the Safe Passage website by Inspire Diagnostics, Disney Cruise Line’s third-party partner for COVID-19 testing and vaccination verification. Parents and legal guardians may use their own accounts to submit test results on behalf of their children. An account cannot be created sooner than 33 days prior to sailing. If you have any questions about your Safe Passage registration or status, please contact 877-250-5132.

Online Check-in

If you have not done so already, you will need to complete Online Check-in prior to your sailing. You will need to submit the required citizenship documents as well as select a Port Arrival Time. All Guests, including our Platinum Castaway Club Guests, will need to select a Port Arrival Time. Guests arriving prior to their selected arrival time will be asked to return at the appropriate time. Online check-in can be completed or modified up to one day prior to sailing.

Transfers from the Orlando International Airport to the Port

For Guests with transfers included with their cruise vacation, motorcoach transportation from the Orlando International Airport to the port in Port Canaveral, Florida, will begin at approximately 11:30 a.m. on the day of embarkation. Resort Guest motorcoach transportation will begin at approximately 12:00 noon on the day of embarkation.

Disney Cruise Line is recommending Guests bring a copy of their negative COVID-19 PCR test result, or vaccination card showing the final dose was administered at least 14 days before sailing, as well as proof of travel insurance as supporting documents in the event there is a technical issue with Safe Passage.

    Does anyone know if they can do a PCR test on board? We are Canadians and, to travel home, we need a negative test three days before flying.


    My wife booked a cruise in September. I am taken aback by the stress over masking in the indoor areas on the ship for several reasons. The testing of non vaccinated individuals (at this point, if you are not vaccinated, you have made a choice that no one else should be responsible for), and the request for proof of vaccination to not have to undergo testing, should be enough not to muzzle up everyone in recycled air with useless masks that equate to trying to keep back mosquitos with a chain link fence.
    Also what perplexes me, since I have already been to Disney in June/July, where there were no temperature checks anymore, no masks for the fully vaccinated, where not only the phrase, “Fill in all available space”, was used constantly, we were also told in one queue to clap. When we clapped, we were told if we were able to clap, then we weren’t close enough together. We were pushed in like sardines in Disney again, smelling everybody’s “culture”. Funny enough, I have neither heard or read about anyone catching Covid-19 in amusement parks. At. All.
