Guests Dressed as Pirates Gather Near Goofy's Pool at Night to Watch Fireworks Explode in the Sky

Pirate Night

Location: All Ships

Pirate Night
Available on select Disney cruises, Pirate Night invites landlubbers to embrace the pirate life with a thrilling celebration at sea! The excitement begins with a pirate-themed dinner and continues with a buccaneer bash—starring some favorite Disney Characters—and a spectacular fireworks display.

Dinner Party
Pirate Night festivities start at dinnertime when your servers, dressed in pirate garb, greet you and your family with an, "Ahoy, matey," and, "Arrr!" in one of the Main Dining restaurants. Once seated, unique offerings await, including:

  • A special bandana—tie it on for a little pirate style
  • A menu that resembles an old treasure map
  • Themed dinner options*

Deck Party
After dinner, venture to the pool deck for a treasure trove of Disney entertainment starring some of your favorite Disney Characters bedecked in pirate garb. Kick up your heels for a little line dancing and rock out to pirate-themed tunes.

Just as the fun is in full swing, black lighting, raucous music and skull-and-crossbones projections signal the arrival of Captain Hook, Mr. Smee and a gang of pirates—ready to take over the party. But they're no match for Mickey and his crew.

In a breathtaking finale—complete with awe-inspiring fireworks that can't be missed—Mickey and friends save day! They protect the ship from Captain Hook and his scurvy scalawags to ensure that it's smooth sailing for the rest of your vacation.


This spectacular fireworks display is the first one in the world offered by a cruise line. Please note that the fireworks show is weather permitting and may be postponed or canceled due to weather conditions, including high winds.

Please check the Personal Navigator—the Disney Cruise Line daily newsletter detailing all there is to see and do—while onboard for specific show dates.
