Even though the CDC’s “No-Sail Order” has officially been lifted, it doesn’t look like Disney Cruise Line will be getting back on the water anytime soon.
As you can see in the Disney Cruise Line website screenshot above, the cruise operator has officially canceled all sailings through December 31, 2020.
However, all January and February 2021 itineraries have also been removed from the webpage. Previously, Disney Cruise Line Guests had the option to take numerous trips — out of multiple ports, including Port Canaveral, the Port of New Orleans, and the Port of Galveston — in early 2021.
This indicates that Disney does not expect any of their four ships — the Disney Dream, the Disney Fantasy, the Disney Magic, or the Disney Wonder — to obtain their conditional sailing certificates by February.
Among the canceled January and February sailings are Marvel Day at Sea and Star Wars Day at Sea itineraries. Disney Cruise Line officials have not announced if these special events will be rescheduled for later in the year.
Disney Cruise Line Blog shared some details regarding the January 2021 cruise cancelations:
Disney Cruise Line decided to cancel all sailings departing through January 2021. Sailings are cancelled on board the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder and Disney Dream through February 1 and the Disney Fantasy through February 6.
Guests booked on affected sailings who have paid their reservation in full will be offered the choice of a cruise credit to be used for a future sailing or a full refund. Guests who have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far. Affected Guests and travel agents will receive an email from Disney Cruise Line outlining details and next steps.
Disney Cruise Line Blog also rounded up the next available Disney Cruise Line cruises on each ship in the Disney fleet:

The CDC’s Conditional Sailing Framework includes regulations about how long cruises can be at this time — as a result, Disney has also removed sailings over 7-nights from their available itineraries.
At this time, little is known about exactly how Disney Cruise Line will operate once they get back on the high seas. Stay tuned to Inside the Magic for the latest news regarding upcoming DCL itineraries.
