With the pandemic, travel has been incredibly difficult for many, especially if you were planning on traveling out of the country. For those looking to visit the Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort from out of the country, the rules and regulations have made that quite difficult.
Although Guests from Canada and Mexico have been able to fly over to the United States, the land borders have remained closed for a year and a half. In September, we learned that the United States would ease travel restrictions for certain countries, and now, we can see that Canada and Mexico have joined the list as the land borders are set to reopen in November to fully vaccinated Guests!
As reported by CNN:
The new rules, which are similar to those announced for international air passengers, will be rolled out in a phased approach. The first phase, kicking off in early November, will allow fully vaccinated visitors traveling for nonessential reasons, like visiting friends or for tourism, to cross US land borders. The second phase, starting in early January 2022, will apply the vaccination requirement to all inbound foreign travelers, whether traveling for essential or nonessential reasons.
Many Canadians have limited their travel because the land borders have been closed even though air borders remained open. With this change, we will likely see a lot more Guests traveling inbound to the United States, and with that, the Disney Parks as well.
It should be known that those traveling to the United States from Canada must have a negative COVID-19 test present before boarding the plane and when traveling home, another negative COVID-19 text must be presented. These are appointments that Guests traveling to Disney World and Disneyland should be sure to plan ahead of time so that the added requirements do not post as a stress to travelers.
With the borders reopening just as the 50th anniversary celebrations have begun at Disney World, there has never been a better time to visit!
