    Hi, We are sailing to the Eastern Caribbean on a 7-night cruise. Can my daughter wear her Ariel mermaid costume (essentially a bathing suit with a tail wrap) to formal night in one of the rotational dining rooms? Thanks.

    Welcome back aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Elisa!

    What an honor to be sailing with mermaid royalty this summer.  I am excited for you to make so many magical memories with your daughter while onboard!  One way I love to pass the days before my family joins Captain Mickey on the high seas is planning our onboard activities and making our packing lists.  It sounds like you are doing the same!

    Formal night in the rotational dining rooms is an optional dress up night for guests during their sailing.  If your princess longs to be part of your world and join in the fun of this evening, she is more than welcome to dress up in her Ariel attire!  I personally find the dining rooms to be chilly at times, so you may want to bring a sweater for her to wear over her costume so she can be comfortable during the meal.

    If your princess needs a little assistance channeling her inner mermaid and would like some help working a dinglehopper, consider a royal transformation from the Fairy Godmothers-in-Training at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!  Available for an additional fee, these magical makeovers are my favorite memories with my daughter during our cruises.  Watching her face light up as she sees herself transformed into a princess never gets old!

    Dive under the sea and visit us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you sail, Elisa!

    Bon voyage!  Angie
