    Hello, we are going on a 7 night Disney Fantasy cruise. I was wondering which night is the optional formal night? I can't seem to find that information. Thank you!

    Hi there, Erica!

    Ahoy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your FANTAStic Disney Cruise Line adventure is just around the corner!!  You are going to have the most magical and memorable time during this Very Merrytime voyage…don't get me wrong...all Disney Cruise Line vacations are memorable, but there is something extra special about a holiday themed itinerary and I am so excited for you!

    Onboard your seven-night voyage you can expect to have four cruise casual nights (always the first and last nights onboard), one formal night, one semi-formal night and the ever-fun Pirate-themed night!  Now, of course, pirate garb is completely optional, but it is so much fun to dress up as swashbuckling pirates for the themed dinner and the Pirates IN the Caribbean deck party at night!  Oh, and if your particular voyage has the late-night Pirate Buffet, definitely make a point to go!  Since it usually is later than my boys’ bedtime, my husband and I will often get them to bed and then sneak up individually to fill a plate of delicious snacks to bring back to our stateroom and enjoy!

    While onboard entertainment and schedules are always subject to change, currently Formal Night is scheduled for Night Two, Pirate Night is Night Five and Semi-Formal Night is Night Six.  Once you get onboard, the Navigator app will have it all laid out for you so you can check the daily schedule (and weekly schedule, too!).

    Erica, I hope you have the most magical adventure at sea with Captain Mickey and make some incredible memories!  Please come back with any last-minute planning questions you may have!

    Happy Sailing!
