Pirates Night at Sea Aboard the Disney Dream Ship

Pirates Night at Sea

On our second night at sea aboard the Disney Dream was ‘Mickey’s Pirates in the Caribbean’ night.

When we returned to our stateroom to change for dinner, three pirate’s bandanas were laid out on the bed for us. After dinner, they have a Pirate Celebration show with music on the pool deck, Deck 11, featuring Captain Mickey and his pirate crew including Jack Sparrow.

Disney is the only cruise line to shoot off fireworks at sea.

At 10:30pm, they wrap up the Pirate’s Celebration and launch into the Buccaneer Blast fireworks right off the top of the ship. All the other cruise ships from Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian are also stopped at sea nearby so their passengers can see the fireworks too. The newsletter says that the “fireworks remind the other ships who be ruling the oceans blue”.

This was also the night that they held the Officer’s Pin Trading event.

We bought trading pins with us from home and at 8pm the ships’ officers in their white uniforms started coming down to the event. Each of the officer’s lanyards is guaranteed to have special or unique trading pins and they did!

Caroline collected pins from all of the ports or countries that Disney sails to worldwide. She liked the Disney Alaska pin the best.

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.

Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
