    Hi sailing on HOTHS: My booking window opens tomorrow--is that just for port of call excursions? Is there a pirate night on my cruise and if so, is there a separate "pirate makeover" activity that I could book? Do I need book the youth clubs?

    Hi there, Kimberly! Welcome back to planDisney. We are always happy to see a guest return to us with more questions.

    You ask some great questions about what you can reserve when your advance booking window opens for your sailing. If your booking window is open and your cruise fare is paid in full, now is the time to reserve adult-exclusive dining, book select spa treatments, make nursery reservations, schedule Port Adventures, and more onboard fun.

    It does look like your sailing includes a Pirate Night on the third night of your voyage. You can see if reservations are available for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on this day when the boutique transforms into Pirates League.  From the Disney Cruise Line website, sign into your account. Select My Reservations, then navigate to My Plans and find a reservation listed under Onboard Fun. 

    Reservations are not needed for youth clubs, but they are recommended for the "it's a small world" nursery and can be made once your booking window is open. The remainder of the youth spaces onboard do not require advance reservations. I recommend that on the day you step aboard your cruise, you drop by the youth spaces during an Open House. This is a time when the whole family can walk through the immersive spaces and take part in the fun. Open Houses are available throughout the sailing but are much more prevalent on the first day to give the kids an opportunity to get comfortable with their surroundings. 

    I hope that information helps as you plan for a spooky time at sea! Please return to planDisney if you have more questions. My fellow panelists and I are here to help. 

    Have a magical time!
