    Hello, we are going on our first Disney Cruise in a couple of weeks. I have a 2.5 year old and a 4 year old. I was wondering if I should bring anything for pirate night, like actual pirate costumes. Also, any other tips would be appreciated.

    Ahoy, Sandra!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on planning your inaugural Disney Cruise Line adventure! Your first voyage with Captain Mickey is just a couple weeks away! I bet you and your pirate crew are bursting with excitement while preparing for your voyage!

    Arr, matey! Pirate Night is my favorite night on the high seas! I think you should definitely bring pirate-y apparel for not just the kiddos, but for the entire family! I've seen Guests in full pirate garb or just pirate-themed shirts. No matter what you choose, there's no better night to let your inner pirate out than Pirate Night! This would also be a perfect opportunity to get a family photo taken by the onboard photographers. You can all raise your hooks and grimace at the camera for an unforgettable group photo to commemorate your first cruise!

    Disney Cruise Line makes Traveling with Little Ones a breeze! Your 4-year old will love spending time in Disney's Oceaneer Club and Disney's Oceaneer Lab! You can book time (for a small fee) in "it's a small world" nursery! for your littlest sailor. For the adults in your travel party 18 years of age or older, a visit to Senses Spa & Salon is the perfect way to be pampered on your days at sea. Each evening, the entire family will enjoy the Live Shows & Entertainment offered, too!

    I'm wishing you a magical inaugural voyage!
