    Quick question about our upcoming first Disney cruise. I've seen this pirate night referenced several times, but no mention of where to get pirate gear. Is this bring-your-own or is there a way to rent/buy gear on board?

    Ahoy, Mara!

    Arrr! Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on booking your first voyage aboard Disney Cruise Line! You're asking about my favorite night on the high seas: Pirate Night! I can't wait until your pirate crew experiences this fun night aboard your Disney Cruise!

    I highly recommend letting your inner pirate out and dressing up in pirate garb! Typically, Guests will bring their own pirate paraphernalia along with them from home. With that being said, there is pirate gear for purchase in the shops onboard if you'd rather buy it during your cruise. We were just sailing aboard the Disney Dream and saw pirate costumes for kids, eye patches, hoop earrings, adult-sized shirts and other pirate-y items for sale. I suggest bringing your pirate attire from home because merchandise sold onboard is always subject to change and you'll be guaranteed to have everything pirate-y you want to wear!

    You can likely look forward to your Stateroom Host/Hostess leaving each member of your family a Disney Cruise Line bandana to wear for Pirate Night, too. My family of buccaneers enjoys wearing matching Mickey pirate T-shirts with our bandanas tied around our heads or in our hair. No matter what you decide to wear, be sure to stop by one of the onboard photographers in order to get a family photo!

    I'm wishing you a swashbuckling good time aboard your inaugural Disney Cruise! If you have any other questions before setting sail, please don't hesitate to come back and visit us again!
