    Hello, we are taking our two grandchildren, age 7 and 5, on the Disney Magic on Jan 7, 2018 from Miami. This cruise has the Marvel day. Is there pirate night or just Marvel night? Do we need to reserve in advance to meet any of the charecters on board?

    Ahoy, Dianne!

    Your crew is in for an epic time of your Disney Magic sailing out of Miami this January! I'm sure your grandchildren can't wait to experience all the Marvel-themed fun Disney Cruise Line has planned. Do they have their costumes ready to go for this MARVELous day on the high seas? I know it will be a highlight of this very special vacation! 

    Not only will you get to enjoy all the activities and events planned with your favorite Marvel heroes and villains, but you'll also get to party like a pirate when the Disney Magic celebrates Pirate Night! You can bring along your own pirate garb or reserve pirate makeovers at the Pirates League, which transforms from Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for the swashbuckling festivities. Reservations open up when your online booking window becomes available after you complete your Online Check-in. 

    Dianne, there are two Disney Character Meet-and-Greet Experiences you can reserve during the online booking window I mentioned above-the Princess Gathering and Frozen Friends. The times and dates available will appear when you are able to book these events online. When I sailed on one of the Star Wars Day at Sea sailing we were able to meet-and-greet some of the Characters on the day of the celebration. We received a card in our stateroom on embarkation day where we were given the opportunity to rank our choices. We turned our card into Guest Services, and we received our meet-and-greet times and locations the night before the big day. This may be the same process they use for the Marvel Day at Sea Character experiences. 

    Thank you for sending in your question, Dianne! Please write back if we can help you further with your magical plans.
