    We are so excited for our first Disney cruise to West Carribean on Fantasy in May! We tried to figure out which days pirate night, captain reception, and silver anniversary celebration will be? Also any chance we can get the limited edition art print?

    Ahoy Yiqin,

    Thank you so much for stopping by planDisney with your Disney Cruise Line question. Your cruise is coming up so soon - I can understand why you are getting excited! I am happy to help you with your questions about your upcoming sailing.

    I have found that the best way to find out when special nights are scheduled on your cruise is to call Disney Cruise Line. You can provide the cast member there with the specifics of your sail date, ship, and possibly reservation number, and they will be able to tell you what is scheduled for each night of your cruise. When you talk with this cast member, I am sure that they will let you know that these nights are all subject to change. Once you are on board the lovely Disney Fantasy, you can check your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App. This is the best place to find up-to-date information about the schedule of entertainment on your sailing.

    In terms of the special nights on board your cruise, Disney Cruise Line does provide suggestions for how to dress for each. These are all guidelines and are optional; however, I do find it to be very fun to dress up according to the evening! You mentioned Pirate Night, which is one of my favorite nights on a Disney cruise. I enjoy putting on my pirate skirt and long dangling earrings, braiding my hair, and heading up to the top decks for a rocking good time at the Pirates in the Caribbean party and fireworks at sea display!

    Finally, you are going on a special cruise. The Silver Anniversary sailings will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Disney Cruise Line. The website indicates that there will be special entertainment and treats to celebrate this anniversary! I believe that this Disney Parks Blog post about the Silver Anniversary has the limited-edition art print that you are referring to. In that blog, they mention that this limited-edition art print is for Castaway Club members. The Castaway Club is for those who are return cruisers on Disney Cruise Line, so they are coming back for a cruise after having completed at least one. Because you are a first-time cruiser, I do not believe that you are eligible for this giveaway. But after this first cruise, I bet that you will want to return again and again! Also, be sure to check out the Disney Parks Blog post about the Silver Anniversary merchandise that will be available for purchase. I imagine that there will be something in that collection that you might like as a souvenir of this special trip!

    I would love to help you plan more Yiqin; however, I am limited in the amount of space that I have to answer. Please do feel free to sail on back to planDisney with any further questions you may have!
