    We will be on the Very Merrytime Cruise December 9-14 on the Disney Magic. What day will the Princess Gathering be? And also the Pirate Night? I cannot make my reservations until this Friday so I’m trying to plan ahead! Thank you!

    Hi Sarah!

    It’s so exciting that your Online Check-In and onboard booking window is so close!  I know that every time that day arrives, it makes it all feel so real!  Once I am finally able to get everything scheduled, I can finally relax and just wait for the sail date to arrive!

    At the stroke of midnight (EST), you will be able to sign onto your My Reservations page and begin reserving onboard activities!  FYI – you do NOT need to complete your Online Check-In prior to reserving activities, so make those plans and then go back to complete your Check-In!  Do make sure you’ve set up your account ahead of time, so you are ready to go when the clock strikes twelve.  

    Currently for your sailing, Pirate Night is scheduled for your third night onboard (the day you visit Cozumel).  The schedule of specific activities such as Princess Gatherings and Character Breakfast are not available to see until your window opens.  But, once it does, you will be able to search each day under “Onboard Fun” to see what fun activities await you!  Just remember that if you are unable to get something initially, don’t get discouraged!  Check back frequently as other Guests’ plans can always change and definitely check once onboard if something does not open up before you embark!  Also, be prepared to reserve any excursions that you may want to do while at port.  Port Adventures offers lots and lots of great experiences – and they do all the work for you!

    The countdown is on and I am so excited for the MAGICal adventure that awaits you at sea!  Wishing you a memorable cruise!

    Happy Sailing!
