    Taking our 1st ever cruise next year! We are looking into Christmas. Do they still do pirate night over holidays? Are all meals holiday meals or just on Christmas day? Does AP still change colors through service or is it changed into holiday themed?

    Ahoy, Amanda!
    Christmas is an extra magical time to set sail with Disney Cruise Line! The Very MerryTime sailings will definitely put your crew in the holiday spirit! The Grand Lobby Atrium will be decked out in the most beautiful shimmering decor with a 24-foot Christmas tree and a life-sized Gingerbread House as the focal points! 
    You will be happy to know that extra festivities will be planned along with the traditional experiences like Pirate Night. Christmas Day will have a special feast planned in the main dining rooms along with cookies on Christmas Eve, holiday themed towel animals in your stateroom and caroling for the kids and crew! When we sailed on a Very MerryTime Cruise a couple of years ago, Animator's Palate did not incorporate the holiday into this one-of-a-kind meal experience. Some of our favorite memories from that cruise were the characters in their festive attire, the tropical holiday decor on Castaway Cay and seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus onboard! Disney Cruise Line never disappoints when it comes to celebrating the most magical time of the year! 
    Thank you again for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with all your cruise questions, Amanda! 
    Have a magical day!
