    We are booked for a 3 night cruise on Dream during Halloween on the high seas. Will there be both a Pirate night, and a Halloween party? Want to pack and plan accordingly.

    Boo to you, Adriane! How exciting to be planning for a Disney Cruise Line Halloween on the High Seas voyage! These special Halloween-themed cruises just happen to be my very favorite and I would LOVE to help you prepare. 

    The Disney Dream will be decorated in some not-so-spooky decor and the entertainment onboard will be ghoulishly delightful. You can expect that one of the evenings will include Mickey's Mousequerade Party (likely offered twice that evening) and an opportunity to do some onboard trick-or-treating. This is the day you'll want to don your Halloween costume if you have packed one. There is also a Halloween party for the adults-only crowd later that same night and it includes a costume contest. Even if you don't want to join in as a contestant, it's a very entertaining time! 

    With your sailing being three nights, there will not be a Pirate Night. Pirate Night entertainment is generally offered on sailings that are four nights or longer. The exception to this is that the Disney Wish offers Pirate Night entertainment on three-night voyages, but this does not include a special Pirate-themed dinner menu. I hope that information helps as you plan and pack! If you'd like a packing checklist, Disney Cruise Line offers one on their website

    Please be sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app before setting sail. You can even use it to check in to your cruise 30 days prior to your sail date. That's coming up soon! Once onboard, the Navigator app will be what points your compass in the direction of all of the fun on the ship. You can view the daily activity schedule and click the heart icon next to any activities that you don't want to miss. The app will send a gentle reminder when the fun is about to begin. 

    I hope you have a spooktacular time! Please cruise our way again if you have further questions. My pals and I are always excited to help. If you'd like, you can even listen to or watch the third episode of the planDisney podcast. I had a chance to chat about Halloween on the High Seas voyages with some fellow panelists from INSIDE the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. I hope you find the information to be helpful! 

    Have a magical vacation,
