So when we got back to the boat, we removed our muddy clothes and started to get ready for the night's events! If you hadn't guessed...it was Pirate Night!!

It took a while because DH didn't think he'd want to dress up until he was on the boat! So we had to get down to the shop to get him a hat.

First, though, i needed to met pirate Minnie!


Then we headed up to say goodbye to Saint John.



Duffy was all ready for the party as well!



After watching our departure for a little we headed in because it was getting rather chilly. Our guide had told us we might see whales...but it was just too cold. We were told later that you couldn't see any.


I was impressed at how good this Jack was. It was a fun interaction.

I also really liked meeting Chip and Dale...


They had a specialty drink station, so I treated us to some with special light up cups! Mine was a pineapple mixture and DH got a sangria.






We then headed to play a Disney song guessing game. It was really fun! I wish there had been more games like this. They played small bits of songs and you had to guess them. We did pretty well, but def didn't win!


We headed back to the lobby to meet more characters!




Then DH's favorite...Stitch!



We had no interest in the evening's Walt Disney Theatre show whatsoever (it was the same comedian magician who didn't impress us on the first night), so we went to Studio Sea to play A Pirate's Life for Me.






Duffy was playing too!


It was fun but completely geared to children. This was the first game show we found that was like this. So, it was fun to watch but we didn't stay the whole time because it became boring.

We hung around and got ready for pirate dinner at Lumiere's.



Our awesome waiter!





For my main I got The Buccaneer's Sun-Ripened Pineapple - fresh island pineapple with a coconut covered banana and orange glaze.


This was really fresh and a nice start. I really enjoyed it.

DH got Pirates Golden "Pot Stickers" - oriental pork "dumplings" deep fried and served with a tamarind-ginger soy sauce and pickled vegetables.


These looked awesome even to me! Yum yum!

For my main I got Tiger Lilie's Savory Pancakes - stuffed with tofu, spinach, and lashed to the deck on a pool of pepper coulis

This was not the best choice. I really didn't enjoy it. It was very...mushy. But I think it was just a bad choice on my part. Someone else probably would have liked it.

I can't seem to find exactly what DH got anywhere. It was tempura veggies and I think boneless ribs.

I know DH liked this a lot better then I likes mine! Ha.

Angel Food Cake - with strawberries and whipped cream.
Mine

I must've just kept picking badly because this was a very blah dessert. Not nearly enough strawberries and cream to go with the cake.

DH got the Sweet Temptations - a trio of fruit cobbler, floating island and chocolate cake.

This is what I should have gotten! It was so good...DH shared!

We didn't stay too long because we wanted to go have fun!

When we got up to deck 9, it was freezing. Thankfully the more people who came out, the warmer it got.


DH took the photos as me and Duffy danced!

Then came....


And..











Then Mickey came to save us from the bad pirates..






Fireworks!!!





It was so amazing to have fireworks off the ship!!! So cool.



Then Peter came out!!


It was so cool for him to come out and dance.

We loved the pirate party! This is a must do!!! The characters even came out to dance with some groups. The energy was so great and everyone was having fun. So amazing to think it was all going on out in the Atlantic Ocean!

After the party I headed down to the theater to see the Avengers. DH went to the room to relax and watch some TV. I really liked the movie. It was packed though, because pirates was playing on the Funnelvision but it was too cold to watch.

Gotta love Pirate Night! Your pictures are awesome, and Duffy looks so cute all decked out for the evening.

I have to agree, the Sun-Ripened Pineapple and Coconut Toasted Bananas are incredible! Has to be one of my favorite appetizers on any of the DCL menus.

Just catching up. I just got off the magic on Saturday. We had Peter too, but I am pretty sure he was in pirate gear....I haven't gone through the epics yet. I love yours. I am pretty sure you got better shots.

Thanks so much for reading! I'm sorry I never finished. Life just got away from me. I'll try and find time to post the rest of the photos, though the details are probably fuzzy. haha
