    I'm sailing on the Wonder May 6th. I don't want to take up a reps time on the phone. I would like to know which night is Pirate night and which night/s are the formal nights. It would be nice to see in the my plans area of the app as well.

    Ahoy there, Elden - or perhaps I should say, "Aloha!" Thanks for sailing our way here at planDisney! I'm so excited that you and your crew will be taking a "Hawaiian Rollercoaster Ride" on the Disney Wonder in just over a month! The Hawaii itineraries are always such a special chance to island hop, and then bask in the majesty and beauty of the Pacific Ocean! There's something special about a sea day, and my family actually prefers them to port days since they can be even more relaxing - it's one of the reasons why the Disney Wonder is our favorite ship, our Panama Canal itinerary featured so many! 

    When it comes to your itinerary and the themed nights, It's important to note that while themed nights are definitely scheduled, the exact timing of each is subject to change! The morning fog is still clearing on the exact plans for your themed nights, but I have a few ideas from previous cruises that should help you prepare! 

    • The first night of your cruise is always Cruise Casual, which lets you settle-in and get ready for your adventure comfortably while meeting the incredible dining crew members that will be taking care of you every night for the next 10 nights! 
    • Once you embark, your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app will update and show you what nights are scheduled to be Pirate Night, your formal and semi-formal nights, as well as provide the schedule of all the activities, Port Adventures, Onboard Fun like Beverage Tastings, and more that are planned for your itinerary! 
    • Since Pirate Night and fireworks at sea go together like Captains Mickey and Minnie Mouse, I would expect Pirate Night to be either the night you leave Kauai, or the night after that! Now, this is always subject to change and is weather-permitting, but with so many sea days, if weather threatens to postpone your Pirate Night, there's always a backup plan! 
    • Your semi-formal and formal nights are usually spread out across the itinerary, but again, once you embark, you'll know with a quick look at the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app when to expect to dress to the nines! 
    One of my favorite parts of the unique itineraries like Hawaii, Southern Caribbean, and Panama Canal is the slight differences that crop up - so keep a weather eye open for anything special - or for something to take the place of something you're expecting! We had multiple formal nights on our Panama Canal cruise, which we ended up not participating in, but it was fun to see the crew in their Dress Whites again! 

    Whichever nights you decide to partake in, I hope you and your crew have an incredible time next month! Thank you so much for your question, Elden and if any others bubble to the surface, please drop us another line here at planDisney! 

    Mahalo and Aloha!
