    Hi, We are traveling on the Disney Wonder departing Sydney Australia on the 28th December. I was wondering if there will be a pirate night and a separate New Year’s Eve party? Also was wondering if there is a formal night. Can’t wait!

    Hello, Sarah! Thank you for visiting from Down Under!

    Sailing over New Year’s Eve aboard the Disney Wonder sounds amazing! While this year’s festivities haven’t been finalized yet, passengers last year celebrated the evening with a special dinner and a dazzling fireworks display. You will have one optional dress-up night. I can't say for certain if this will be New Year's Eve, but I’m sure you’ll see plenty of Guests celebrating in style. 

    I’m happy to share that you can expect Pirate Night on your sailing. Plenty of Pirate-themed activities will happen all around the ship, so pack those eye patches, bandanas, or any other pirate apparel. Download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to find all the treasure on board. You’ll be able to see your Rotational Dining details – including which nights are dressier or casual, as well as the daily activities and entertainment schedules.

    Pirate Night is one of many fun things happening on your sailing. Are you ready to unleash your inner hero with some of Marvel’s mightiest or Feel the Force with epic Star Wars Characters? How about enjoying delicious beignets with Tiana and her jazz-performing friends? Oh, Boy! Your itinerary sounds fantastic! With so many incredible days at sea, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the festive deck parties, outstanding dining, and memorable moments with Captains Mickey and Minnie. Be sure to follow @disneycruiselineaunz on Instagram for the latest Disney Magic at Sea updates.

    Sarah, I’m happy you came to planDisney with your question. If we can help with anything else, please stop by again. I hope the rest of the year is full of magical moments worth celebrating! 

    SEAS the adventure!
