    We are cruising the Fantasy on Dec 6-2014. We know they are now having a christmas party but it is unclear whether it is on the same night as the pirate party? We want to make Palo reservations but do not want to miss the christmas party.

    Hey there, Preston!

    What an awesome treat for the holidays! How exciting to hear that you'll be cruising on a Very MerryTime Cruise to the Caribbean this December. The Disney Fantasy will once again be superbly decorated for the holidays, and the scent of gingerbread will welcome you to the atrium lobby on embarkation day! 

    Schedules may change, so please remember to check the Personal Navigator each night. It will list what the following days' activities are, and what the suggested attire at dinner will be. You can count on 1 Dress up night, a semi-formal night, Pirate Night and the rest of the evenings will be cruise casual. The Disney Cruise highlights their signature Pirates IN the Caribbean deck party on most of their cruises. It's very unlikely that they'll combine that with any other theme for the evening. 

    I would suggest going ahead and making your Palo reservations on one of the evenings that will work for you. On a 7-night cruise, I usually make Palo reservations on the 3rd or 6th evening. On embarkation day, you can check with guest services or one of the restaurant managers on any special holiday schedules on your voyage. If there is a conflict, then the restaurant managers will be able to make changes to your Palo reservation for you right there.

    Wishing you lots of magical moments on the Disney Cruise, Preston. Have an awesome MerryTime voyage and please do enjoy a chocolate soufflè for me at Palo! It's my favorite dessert!

    Happy planning!
