We are booked on the Disney Dream October 11-15. All are vaxxed–Me, DH and DS12. When Disney changed requirements that everyone 12 and over be vaccinated, I was excited. Newest update is everyone tests with a rapid PCR test before getting on board. That’s awesome, however, my vaccinated husband tested positive for covid on August 23. He felt like he’d been hit by a truck for about 3 days and still has a cough but the vaccine did it’s job keeping him out of the hospital. DS and I did not get it. Again, vaccine did it’s job.
My concern now is, I’ve read those who have had covid can test positive for up to three months after first being diagnosed. So now, I’m worried that he’s going to get to the boat, test positive and we all get the boot. I had my TA call Disney and ask with my specific question of, “if he tests positive even though he is not contagious and can show his positive test was back on August 23 can we still go on the cruise”. She spoke with a supervisor and the answer was “a positive test is a positive test”.
So now for the next 32 days, I’m going to worry about whether or not we can actually get on the boat. DH is going to schedule a PCR test next week to see what kind of results he gets. I’m going to have him test weekly leading up to the cruise if necessary.
I’m also trying to come up with Plan B. If we can’t go on the ship, we could just go back to Disney World but hotel reservations are limited. We are staying 2 days before cruise at ASMo and one night at GDT when we get back. I was just at Epcot in March of this year and DS, DD18 and I went to Disney in November 2020. I really hadn’t planned on hitting the parks again this soon and honestly, really don’t want to.
So, send all your positive vibes my way that he will test negative soon and we can go on our cruise.
