    We are on the Disney Dream Very Merry Time out of Fort Lauderdale on the 23rd of December for 5 nights - do we have a formal evening?

    Hi Tina, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question!

    I’ve seen pictures of the fabulous new Disney Cruise Line port terminal in Fort Lauderdale and I’m truly excited to sail out of that port soon. The Disney Dream will always hold a special place in my heart, so you’re making me want to book another voyage on her very soon… 

    One of the things that I love about Disney Cruise Line itineraries is how flexible the dress code can be. Although there are no specifically designated “formal” nights on board a 5-Night sailing, there is typically an “optional dress up” night on the second or third evening. This allows people who want to get dressed to the nines to do so, while others can take a more relaxed approach to their attire for the evening. Based on my calculations, your optional dress up night should be on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, which is a perfect excuse to don your holiday best for dinner and take advantage of the photo opportunities available at the onboard photography sessions. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. I hope that you have a lovely Very Merrytime Cruise this December!

    Have a Magical Day,
