    We are sailing on the Disney Fantasy on April 23, 2022. Will there be a pirate night? Do you know which night it will be?

    Ahoy there, Kate! Welcome to PlanDisney!

    Or should I say, AVAST, AN' SHIVER ME TIMBERS! There be pirates here...or there...or there WILL be... 

    By the powers, while it's true pirates have been kept at bay as of late on sailings shorter than 4-nights, the Disney Fantasy be a ripe target fer plunderin' with its 7-night itineraries bein' the norm. It all be pointin' to the fact that ye best be prepared - and ye be warned! 

    If "AYE" were you, I'd be countin' me lucky stars that you've got time to be preparin' - the last surprise pirate boardin' caught the crew unawares...a frightful sight that Jolly Roger was indeed...and if not fer some quick thinkin' by Captain Mickey, the Fantasy may still have been sailin' under a pirate flag! 

    Now what good would knowin' which night the pirates be chartin' a course to intercept the Fantasy's course do ya, scalawag? Hmm...if ye must know, I'm fresh out of magical spells from the sea witch, but I hear tell about a magic-imbued piece o' shine known as a Disney Cruise Line Navigator App...What? Ye have heard of it and all it be doin' is countin' down the days 'til yer cruise? Don't dare impugn me honor - its secrets will be revealed in time! Once yer crew is aboard the Disney Fantasy, her hulls be a burstin' with that moment, ye'll be able ta gaze into the Navigator app an' see its prediction for Pirate Night mayhem! HAHAHAHAHAHA. 

    Sorry, I be gettin' carried away - too much time on land, makes me a bit landsick, savvy? 

    No matter the night, when the moon rises, yer crew will be treated to the transformation begat by the moonlight - pirates emerge, menus change, and ye best be memorizin' the Pirate's Code and practicin' requestin' "parley..."

    All that to say, the pirates are fickle sort, and their involvement could be greater or less depending on how the tides take keep a weather eye out on that scroll called the Guide to Updated Experiences to see what they be plannin'...those pirates have been known to be disinclined to acquiesce to certain requests. 

    I hope that prepares ya for the fate that could befall ya on the Disney Fantasy, Katie, and thank ya fer askin' what I'm sure most of yer crew is thinkin'!  If ye have any other need of a tale or two as you and your quartermaster provision for yer sailin' be sure to send another message my way - lately I'd suggest a message in a bottle, savvy? 

    Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!
