    Hi We are sailing on our first Disney cruise in 16 days and we are all very excited. I have heard from people who have sailed before that a lot of people dress in costumes for certain events on board we don't want to miss out!!

    Ahoy Vicki!

    A magical voyage awaits you and your family just 16 days from now!  Woo Hoo!  You should be ecstatic because from the moment you board the ship, you will be treated like Disney royalty!

    Dressing up on Pirate Night is very popular with many Guests of all ages.  Cruisers transform into buccaneers for the evening just like Pirate Mickey and his crew!  If you don't have pirate costumes, don't worry because the gift shops on board have pirate attire and accessories for purchase!  You can wear your costume to an evening of pirate festivities including a pirate-themed dinner, a pirate celebration on deck, a fireworks spectacular, and pirate dance party!  Sounds like a swashbuckling good time, doesn't it?

    If you have a princess traveling with you, she may choose to dress like her favorite Disney royalty while onboard.  Many girls dress-up for the Princess Gathering Meet & Greet as well as for dinner.  I have also see little princes dressed like some of their Disney favorites, Buzz Lightyear, Prince Charming or Peter Pan!Remember, it is Disney so be creative and use your imagination!

    I hope this helps with your planning!  As you countdown the final days until your sailing, please let me know if you think of any other last minute questions!

    Have a magical day and bon voyage!
