Safe Passage and Disney Cruise Line

One of the requirements to sail with Disney Cruise Line in these uncertain times is that everyone who is five years old and older needs to be fully vaccinated. Checking all of those vaccine cards before boarding would slow down the overall process. There is a simple way to make sure that Disney Cruise Line has the right information, and that is through the Safe Passage website.

Disney Cast Members do not check the vaccine cards. Safe Passage is a third party company that takes care of the process.

It is easy to do. Your cruise will be eligible for the Safe Passage review 15 days before your vacation, but you do not have to upload your information immediately. We would recommend not waiting too long, though, in case there is a problem.

Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Take a picture of your vaccine card. Double check to see that all of the information is clear and that your birthday is correct on the card. If the date on your card does not match the date on your reservation, your card will be rejected.

Next you will need to create your Safe Passage account. Each member of your reservation who is over 18 needs to have his or her own account with Safe Passage. Under 18 will need to be created by a parent or guardian.

You’ll add your cruise reservation number when you register. You will then answer a few simple questions, such as the type of vaccine you received and the date or dates. Again, it is important that the information you add matches your vaccine card.

The next step is to upload the picture of the card. That’s it! You should receive an email that your information is in the system.

Once someone from Safe Passage reviews your card and the information, you will receive an email. This could take a few days.

In the email, you’ll be instructed to sign in to your account, which will then say either “clear to arrive” or “not clear to arrive”. The information is not in the email, you will need to sign in to your Safe Passage account.

Remember, you will need to have your vaccine card with you when you travel, even after you have been cleared. Happy sailing!

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
