Adventures by Disney Vaccination Requirements Starting Jan. 12, 2022

All travelers who wish to depart on an Adventures by Disney vacation on Jan. 12 and after must be able to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

The CDC defines “fully vaccinated” as the following:

  • You have received a single-dose of an accepted 1-dose vaccine (i.e., Johnson & Johnson).
  • You have received the second dose of an accepted 2-dose vaccine (i.e., Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca).
  • You have received the full series of an active (not placebo) COVID-19 vaccine in the U.S.-based AstraZeneca or Novavax COVID-19 vaccine trials.
  • You have received the second dose of any “mix-and-match” combination of accepted COVID-19 vaccines (administered at least 17 days apart).

If your trip departs before Jan. 12, you may show a negative PCR COVID-19 test that was taken within five days prior to departure in lieu of vaccination proof. After Jan. 12, a negative test will no longer be accepted as an alternative and you absolutely must be fully vaccinated in order to travel.

What If You Want to Reschedule or Get a Refund?

If you want to modify your travel date or cancel your reservation because of the Adventures by Disney vaccination requirements, you can do so by Dec. 1, 2021, to receive a full refund. Any cancellations that happen on Dec. 2 and onward will be subject to standard cancellation fees.

If you’ve been dreaming of your Adventures by Disney vacation and haven’t found the time to get vaccinated yet, there’s no better time than the present!
