#DisneyCruiseLife at Home: A Pirate Life for You!

Ahoy, Mateys! Without a doubt, Pirate Night is one of the most popular events aboard a Disney cruise. This swashbuckling celebration is filled with exciting activities for the entire family, including a buccaneer-style feast, family game shows and special entertainment.

In today’s “#DisneyCruiseLife at Home” we are going to share tips and tricks to turn your “homeport” into a fun-filled pirate ship. So, assemble your crew and get ready to chart course towards adventure with your very own “Pirates IN the Caribbean” party.  

1. What be ye Goin’ to Wear?  Head to your closet and grab your boots, pants and your favorite striped shirt (preferably one with black, red or navy stripes) for a rugged swashbuckler look. You can also step it up a notch with a flowy white top, dark vest and pirate hat. If you would like to add a cool accessory to your pirate-inspired wardrobe, here are the instructions to create your very own pirate bandana, courtesy of our crafty friends at Disney Family
