    We are on the Halloween cruise through the Panama Canal in 3 weeks. We've just got our tickets but apart from Halloween dress up on Oct 31st, I can't find any information about formal nights. I've heard there is usually one a week?

    Hi there, Kathryn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  What an adventure you have awaiting you onboard!!  I have yet to sail on a Panama Canal itinerary, but I hope to do so someday – hopefully sooner than later!  I have heard from many Guests that their Panama Canal sailing was their favorite itinerary, and I am sure you won't be disappointed!  But, how can you be disappointed with anything when you are on the "Mickey Boat" for 14 nights?!?

    I checked with Disney Cruise Line for the schedule of nightly events for your sailing and you can expect the following, but please note it can change:

    Formal Night – Night 2
    Pirate Night – Night 7
    Semi-Formal – Night 9
    Frozen Deck Party – Night 10
    Formal – Night 12

    The schedule of the Halloween-themed events will be available once you get onboard, but will probably be throughout your entire time onboard making for a fun and exciting schedule of events! You will want to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to your smartphone to have access to the current schedule of daily events.  Also check out the Cruise Director’s "talk show" each day on the television in your stateroom where your Cruise Director will update you on the day’s events!  My family loves checking in on these each day at sea, and I have heard that on some of the longer cruises they sometimes even highlight expertly decorated stateroom doors each day!

    Have a WONDERful adventure on this incredible itinerary.  Wishing you many magical memories made!

    Happy Sailing!
