COVID is still with us, unfortunately, but that means Disney continue to go above and beyond with their health & safety measures on the ship. All adults must be fully vaccinated, and children require a PCR test 2-5 days prior, and all guests must pass a rapid flow test before boarding.
I know what it's like having your holiday cancelled due to COVID (twice for me, but I know some of you have had more), so there might be some hesitancy booking anything. If you're interested in a staycation cruise with Disney (and you should be) you don't need to worry. Disney has a "book with confidence" policy to reassure guests they can book without having to be concerned about COVID-related matters.
What the "book with confidence" policy contains;
Guests can change their sail date without amendment fees up to 7 days prior to departure.
Final payment is not required until 30 days before sailing, and can be cancelled for any (non-COVID related) reason prior to that with no charge, 15-19 days before sailing you will receive 75% of the cost refunded. (For Concierge, more than 30 days prior to sailing, you lose only your deposit, and if cancelled for a non-COVID reason, 100% of the booking price will be lost.)
Within 14 days of the sailing, booked Guests with qualifying COVID-19-related concerns can receive a full refund without Disney-imposed cancellation fees or apply their cruise fare toward a future sail date. Qualifying scenarios include Guests who: have symptoms of COVID-19, have a temperature of 38c or greater, have had known exposure to a person with COVID-19 within the previous 14 days, have tested positive for COVID-19, are unable to travel due to government-imposed travel restrictions
Guests who experience one or more of the qualifying scenarios above on the day of departure, or tests positive on the rapid flow test (twice), will not be able to sail and will receive a full refund without Disney-imposed cancellation fees.
If you are unfortunate enough to be exposed to COVID, actually catch COVID and test positive, or even just show symptoms, you can cancel the Magic At Sea Disney Cruise staycation for a full refund, or move your balance to another cruise date. (You'll want to do the latter, you won't want to miss this.)
