Are you planning a trip to Walt Disney World as an international Guest? You will want to check out the new change for Inbound International Travel that has just been issued by the CDC.
Visiting Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World has remained opened to Guests since July 2020. This has been great news to Guests able to travel to Florida. Unfortunately, Disneyland remains closed. Yesterday we shared that Disneyland has now ended their Annual Passholder program.
While Disney Parks overseas have experienced temporary closures due to rising cases, Disney Fans from the West Coast and also from overseas have looked to Florida for their next magical Disney vacation.
New Order for International Travel
On January 12, 2021, the CDC issued an Order that now “requires all air passengers arriving to the US from a foreign country to get tested no more than 3 days before their flight departs and to provide proof of the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight.”
Beginning January 26th International guests will now have to be tested no more than 3 days before their flight departs.
This Order will go into effect beginning January 26, 2021 and has no ending date in sight at this time. This is to help reduce the introduction and spread of new variants of SARS-CoV-2.
The Order applies to ALL air passengers 2 years of age or older traveling to the United States. This even includes US citizens and legal permanent residents.
Documentation of a negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 are required before boarding a flight.
Walt Disney World annually welcomes International Guests. This new Order issued by the CDC will need to be shared with our friends across the pond as they plan their next visit to “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”
How does this affect your next trip to Walt Disney World? Do you think Disney Parks may require such documentation to enter their Parks? Share your thoughts with us on our Facebook Page.
