Disney Cruise Line continues it’s phased approach as the relaxation and modifications of various health and safety protocols which were required upon the industry restart. Beginning today, April 1, 2022, Disney Cruise Line is rolling out updated health and safety measure for sailings embarking from the United States.
Some onboard products and experiences that were paused due to physical distancing protocols will resume in a phased approach. Protocol updates, among other, include lifting physical distancing across DCL ships and resuming self-service buffets. Face coverings are optional in most places on the ship including Walt Disney Theater. Port Adventures will return to their traditional format where possible.
At this time, the Sail Away Celebration, the Pirate’s Night deck party, and up-close character interactions continue to be paused.
