ORLANDO, Fla. —
Disney Cruise Line will require children ages five and up to be vaccinated before sailing after Jan. 13.
The mandate is an expansion of one that already exists for the cruise line, where it requires all vaccine-eligible guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Those who are not eligible because of age will need to have proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken between three days and 24 hours of their sail date.
Children who are between the ages five and 11 may complete testing instead of being vaccinated before sailings that depart on Jan 13.
