Pirate Night on a Disney Cruise

by Kristi on September 17, 2012

Pirate Night on CruiseOne of the things that make a Disney cruise unique is their Pirate Night!  Pirate night is a chance for you to channel your inner pirate by getting dressed up and partying Disney-Pirate style on board the ship. If you are wondering what Pirate Night is like aboard a Disney Cruise ship, here is what you can expect:

Disney Cruise Pirate NightWhen the steward makes up your stateroom, he/she will leave you a Disney Pirate Bandana for each member in your party. If you didn’t bring pirate attire with you, you will be able to purchase it on board, but realize that you will pay a premium and the selection will be somewhat limited as to what you can find.

Traditional menus will be replaced with a treasure map menu featuring some deserted island favorites.  Parents  will also have the chance to purchase a souvenir pirate cups that lights up for $4.99.

Get there early to grab a seat up front or find a great viewing spot from the balcony.  During the interactive stage show, you will spend some time dancing, singing and will get a chance to see your favorite Disney characters dressed up in their Pirate Outfits.  While this show is upbeat for the most part, smaller children might get a little frightened by the fight between Captain Hook & Mickey or by the sounds of cannons launching and hitting targets.

Pirate Night on a Disney Cruise will end will a beautiful firework display over the ocean. It is the only one in the world offered by a cruise line!  To say that it is magical, is an understatement.

Wow this looks like fun. I have wanted to take a Disney cruise. I didn’t realize they had so many fun things to do on board. BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog. It’s always nice to see new faces.

Do they do this on all cruises? We will be sailing on the Wonder for a 5 day 4 night and I’m really looking forward to it, but don’t know if they will do it for our cruise. Having some trouble figuring it out so if anyone can tell me I’d appreciate it.

DCL also offers pirate activities in the kids clubs on the day of pirate night, as well as family activities like pirate trivia contests. And there are lots of photo ops with Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain Hook, and Pirate Mickey and Minnie.
