    When there is an evening deck party, like Pirate Night, do I need to choose between that and dinner or that and a Broadway Style show? Or are they schedule so they don’t conflict?

    Ahoy there, Sandy!

    Arrrrrr you getting excited about your Disney Cruise? I hope so! Themed nights are such a fun part of cruising with Disney and I don't blame you for wanting to be sure you don't miss a minute of the amazing entertainment.

    Happily, entertainment is typically scheduled so that the major shows don't conflict with dining rotations or deck parties. On Pirate Night if you have the earlier dining time then you'd go to dinner, have the chance to see the evening show in the Walt Disney Theater, and then head up on deck for a Pirate-worthy party! With a later dining seating, you would enjoy the entertainment in the Walt Disney Theater before dinner, then eat a delicious pirate-themed meal before joining the crew on deck for the festivities. It's a busy day, but the swashbuckling finale is totally worth it!

    The shows in the Walt Disney Theater aren't your only option for live music! You can often find wonderful performers in the nightclubs and lounges on the ships. While you're on the ship you can use the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to keep track of all the events happening each day. Keep a close eye on the times so that you know where to be and when to be there! The app even allows you to save "favorite" activities (just tap the little heart icon) so that you can see all the things you're interested in together at once. I also love using the app when I'm still at home to countdown to my next sailing. The little countdown timer is so cute!

    You are already charting a course for adventure, Sandy! I hope your voyage will be full of treasures!

    Keep moving forward!
