    Hi moms! We are wondering about clothes and shoes for formal and semi-formal nights. Does husband need to wear a sport jacket for formal night? And would nicer brown sandals for son and sparkly sandals for daughter be formal enough?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Rebecca!

    It is great to hEAR that you will soon be sailing with Captain Minnie.  I hope you enjoy planning and preparing your packing list so your entire pirate crew can dress to impress!  I always find the time passes faster when suitcases are being filled.

    Formal night attire is completely optional onboard Disney Cruise Line.  I do love this option to dress the family up and enjoy a night out during our vacation!  Many families do participate and I've seen everything from cocktail dresses to ball gowns while onboard.

    If participating in formal night during your sailing, a sport jacket would be appropriate for your husband to wear during the evening.  A nice pantsuit or dress would be perfect for you.  For your children, find footwear that will be comfortable for them to wear throughout the evening with a formal feel.  Clean dress sandals would work well for both your daughter and your son.

    Since your family is dressed in their best, I recommend taking a moment to visit Shutters during the evening.  Shutters offers professional photography onboard Disney Cruise Line ships.  What better way to capture this evening than with a great picture?  As formal night can be very busy at the photography studio, I would recommend visiting them on embarkation day to schedule a time for pictures on formal night.

    Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any additional questions you have before you set sail.  We love to help you make some magic!

    Bon voyage!  Angie
