    Hi there! My family and i are going on the Disney dream and We have selected the late dinner seating but want to make sure we can make the pirate deck party with mickey and friends. Will we have enough time to dress up and make it for the entire show?

    Welcome aboard, Kristy!

    My family and I love Pirate Night on all of Disney's cruise ships! Put your pirate costumes and gear on in the late afternoon because the festivities take place throughout the day, leading up to the big Pirates IN the Caribbean Deck Party and Buccaneer Blast Fireworks at sea like only Disney can do! Even dinner is pirate-themed that night, and your dining servers will be wearing their own pirate best that night, as will your favorite Disney friends who will be out and about the ship for Meet and Greets in their swashbuckling wear!

    Since you have the second seating, you'll want to head to the pool deck for the pirate games and deck party which usually take place on the Dream in between the two dinner seatings, starting around 7:30 and ending at 8:15. Then, it's off to a pirate-themed dinner for you! Later, usually around 9:45 on the Dream, head into D Lounge for one of my family's favorite games shows, A Pirate's Life For Me. My kids love to be chosen for this interactive game show where two teams of pirate guests compete to win the most points. One time, my daughter was chosen as the pirate captain of her team, big pirate hat and all, and she played the part so well, we couldn't stop laughing! She was pointing and ordering around her crew using pirate slang and all! Too funny!

    It's not until about 10:30 that the Buccaneer Blast Fireworks will begin. Then,  if for some reason you haven't had enough food by then, you can enjoy the Pirate Night Buffet at Cabanas after the fireworks! Whew! What a night! Be sure to check your Personal Navigator or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App once onboard for exact times for these events on your cruise.

    Have a swashbuckling good time on your cruise, Kristy!
