Disney Cruise Line Could be Last Disney Experience to Re-Open

Disney Cruise Line Could be Last Disney Experience to Re-Open

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

We are finally starting to hear some possibility of hope for when parts of Disney will re-open. Disney’s CEO spoke out about Disney Cruise Line and its potential re-opening. Read on to find out more.

The last couple of days we have heard information about possibilities of Disney locations re-opening and how they might look. We have heard about Shanghai Disney and a plan in the works for Disney World.

Shanghai Disney announced that they will be re-opening May 11th. They will be opening with limited attendance and accommodating social distancing through the park in places such as restaurants and queues.

The Chief Medical Officer of Disney also spoke today about plans for re-opening Disney. This brought such hope to returning to normal even if it is a new normal.

New precautions that she said be included in the re-opening are phased re-opening, physical distancing and capacity measures, increased cleaning, and staff training.

I do believe that it is good we have now heard something official from Disney about their plans of re-opening. We all know they are working hard to get the parks back open, but it was comforting to hear something today.

But what about Disney Cruise Line?

It seems like Disney is gearing up and is continuing to work on plans to get Disneyland and Disney World back up and running. Hopefully, we will get more insight of when that will happen soon.

Disney’s CEO Bob Chapek stated in the quarterly conference that “cruises will probably be the last of their travel-oriented business to come back online.” Even though many people have said that they can’t wait to return to cruising, Chapek also stated “cruises likely won’t be sailing for several months.

Currently, all cruise departures are canceled for the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy through June 18, 2020. The Disney Magic is canceled through July 2, 2020.

What do you think about Disney Cruise Line possibly being one of the last pieces to open? Are you looking forward to cruising? Will you go on a Disney Cruise once they are cruising again? Let us know on the Kenny the Pirate Facebook page. Don’t forget to join the KtP crew page too!

Carnival won't be sailing till August 1st and there's just no way that DCL will have any ships moving before then. From people I know in the travel/cruise industry, it would seem that Disney won't be sending Mickey and crew to sea until September. For anyone with a cruise planned before that, chances are they'll cancel those sailings... but on the bright side you'll get a 125% cruise fare to apply to your next trip.

We're booked for a late June sailing on the Disney Fantasy. I want to hear what Disney has planned to keep us safe aboard the ship. We're nervous about going but we've been on a few Disney cruises and Disney does a great job of keeping the ship clean and sanitary. Much better than any other cruise ship I've seen. If Disney has a reasonable plan for health and safety that's above as and beyond what they're already doing we'll feel much better about going. But I cant imagine what else they can do.
