    Hi! My family and I are getting ready for our first cruise in a couple of weeks. I just found out it is a Halloween themed cruise. Does this take place of Pirate night? Trying to figure out how many costumes we need...it's only a 3 day cruise.

    Welcome aboard, Lauren! Disney Cruise Line's Halloween on the High Seas sailings are so much fun! With all sorts of extra spooky fun activities and events, plus the ghostly decorations that adorn the ship, your family is going to make some really magical memories!

    Your three-night Halloween on the High Seas sailing on the Disney Dream will include Mickey's Mouse-querade Party, most likely on the afternoon of day two. During this party, guests get dressed up for a costume party and of course, Trick-or-Treating! During last year's sailings, these parties took place twice that day: once around 3:15 and again around 4:45. Because on the three-night sailings, this night is also Pirate Night, guests then either chose to wear their Halloween costumes to dinner or changed into pirate gear for the swashbuckling festivities at dinner and later that night. If your family wants to wear pirate costumes to the Halloween party, go ahead! Then you don't have to pack two costumes! But, many guests will wear their traditional Halloween costumes for the party and change into pirate gear later. It's really up to you. You can't go wrong either way, because it will be a fabulous night of fun!

    That same night around 11:00 p.m., there will be an adult costume contest and dance party in Evolution for the 18 and older crowd. If you plan on dressing up for Halloween onboard, don't miss this party! It's so much fun to see the creative costumes, and your Cruise Staff team makes this party lots of fun for the guests!

    Have fun as you plan the last details and begin to pack for your cruise, Lauren! Enjoy every magical moment!
