    Traveling on the Disney Magic Merrytime Cruise, sailing on December 14 and I was wondering if there is a formal or semi-formal night and if so on what days? Also what special events do you recommend to attend? Thank you!!

    Hi there, Natasha!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your Disney Cruise Line vacation is literally just around the corner and I know you must be so very excited!  Just a few more sleeps and then you will be on your way to a Very Merrytime adventure with my favorite captain, Captain Mickey!

    Your five-night voyage will include three cruise casual dinners, one Pirate Night dinner and one optional “dress up night”.  On the optional dress up night, you will see Guests in a wide variety of attire – from super formal to cruise casual, so plan what works best for you and what you are most comfortable in.  But I highly recommend packing some pirate garb to dress up and take part in the Pirate Night festivities onboard!  Costumes are completely optional and not necessary to participate, but it’s definitely one of my family’s favorite nights onboard!  If you are traveling with little buccaneers, they may enjoy a Pirates League makeover in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique where they will be transformed into swashbuckling pirates complete with an earring and eyepatch!

    You will find that there are so many fun activities to do while onboard and while you will want to do it all, you may find yourself having to pick and choose!  Some of my favorite must do activities include the sail away party, Pirate Night and the nightly entertainment, especially “Tangled: The Musical” – you DON’T want to miss that!  Additionally, I highly recommend that you consider an adult-exclusive dinner at Palo and while there, order the chocolate souffle; you won't be disappointed!

    Wishing you the most MAGICal of adventures at sea with many memories made!

    Happy Sailing!
