We love Disney Cruise Pirate Night! This is one of our favorite nights on board the Disney Cruise Line during Bahamas and Caribbean cruises.
During a Disney Cruise Pirate Night, you will find Disney Characters in costume, themed dinner, dance parties with pirates, and even fireworks at sea. It is a lot of fun for the whole family.
Disney Cruise Pirate Night
While you are practicing your “ARRRRR” for Pirate Night, let’s jump into all of the activities you will find during this special event on the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Wonder, or Disney Magic.
In the late afternoon, the Disney Cruise ship transitions to pirate-themed music. As you walk the halls and around the ship listen for pirate music. It immediately gets you in the mood for pirates. ARRRR!
The transformation continues as you start to see guests and crew members in pirate costumes. You can bring your own costumer or just an eye patch. We love ordering our costume during the after Halloween sale or through Amazon. You can find some great deals on Amazon.
If you did not bring a costume, never fear! Disney Crew Members (your stateroom host) will leave a Mickey pirate bandana in your stateroom. Each person in your stateroom will receive one. You can wear this pirate bandana, just in case you did not pack your own pirate costume. You also may find some chocolate coins. YUM!
If you want more of a pirate experience, you can book Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. During Pirate Day, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique salon changes to Pirates League. Kids and adults can book different pirate makeovers, including a buccaneer or mermaid. Our kids love this pirate transformation!
Disney continues the pirate fun with Disney characters in their favorite pirate garb. Mickey, Minnie, Chip, Dale, and Goofy will actually wear pirate costumes. There are meet and greets scattered throughout the day to get pictures and autographs with your favorites. You can even meet Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, and Captain Jack Sparrow.
You can even enjoy movies by the pool. Disney plays movies on the pool deck on the big screen all day long. You can watch your favorite Pirates of the Caribbean movies and then meet up with Captain Jack Sparrow later in the evening.
There are so many activities throughout the ship themed around pirates; including crafts, Pirates Life for Me (family-friendly game show), Buccaneer Blast Deck Party with a fireworks show, and Club Pirate (dance party). Be sure you check out the Navigator on the app or in your stateroom for all of the pirate activities.
