    We are sailing on the Disney magic on December 10 during the very merry time! I was wondering if we will still have a pirate night even though it's Christmas time?

    Welcome aboard, Cayla! Sailing on the Magic is always fabulous, but there is even more in store when you cruise on a Very Merrytime sailing. From the moment you step onto the ship and the Cast Members announce your family name and applaud your arrival, you'll be immersed in Christmas decorations, activities and events galore! But, that doesn't mean you will miss out on the best parts of sailing with Disney any time of the year - you get it all!

    Pirate Night will take place during your cruise too. Wow! Talk about an itinerary jam-packed full of fun! Be sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to your mobile devices before you arrive at port so you're all set to access the maps, texting feature, and schedule of events. My kids love Pirate Night when we sail. Some of my favorite memories of sailing with Disney are of the kids dressed up like pirates prancing around the deck at Mickey's Pirates IN the Caribbean Deck Party.

    I have a fabulous video of my son strutting back and forth on deck wearing a Captain Hook costume and each time he and this other little pirate passed each other, they'd both show their hooks and say "Aaargh!", make a pirate face, then boldly strut to the other end, turn around and do it again. They were four. This went on for a half hour before the party started on deck, and the two of them really believed they were pirates on the high seas, challenging each other to battle. This was all before the Pirate Party even began! We were almost in tears, it was so funny to see them really acting the part! The magical moments you'll experience - especially with kids - on the ship are so special and memorable, Cayla!

    Have fun planning!
