Recently, Disney Cruise Line updated their Know Before You Go website with details on Ports of Call and restrictions for unvaccinated children now that the ships are expanding out and visiting ports other than just Castaway Cay. Before we go any further discussing the debarkation policy’s unvaccinated children statement it is important to know that the restriction does NOT apply at Castaway Cay based on additional information that was shared with travel agents – I still haven’t found this statement on DCL’s Know Before You Go page, however, I was able to confirm via DCL’s live chat.
Disney Cruise Line’s requirements for guest going ashore is based on CDC guidance. All Guests are required to be vaccinated in order to explore ports of call at their own leisure, except at Castaway Cay. Guests who are vaccinated and wish to disembark the ship with unvaccinated children will need to purchase a Disney Cruise Line Port Adventure, except when at Castaway Cay.
The port of call debarkation policy referenced above is based on the details published on October 13, 2013. As we all know, the policy could change at any time so please always refer to DCL’s Know Before You Go pages as well as direct communications specific to your sailing for the most up to date and accurate information.
