    So I am on the dream with my mum on the 10th. She is in a wheelchair and she has decided to go all out and get a costume for Halloween to get involved in all the fun on board. Can someone tell me when the adults wear the costumes? Is is pirate night or one of the other nights? I don't really think she wants to enter a competition or anything but I wondered if any adults had costumes on at dinner like they do for pirate night? It's a big effort for her and I don't want her struggling to do it if it's only for an hour or so. We are not traveling with kids either so not sure what to do. Wondering if someone could enlighten me on what everyone else did on their cruise?

    How crazy was it in the lobby for the dance party and trick-or-treating?

    We just did a 3-night cruise on the Dream last week. Our Halloween/trick-or-treat was on our day at Nassau. The Halloween/trick-or-treating was at 4:45 until 5:15. Plenty of people dressed up, some quite elaborately. This was also the same day as the Pirate party. That took place in the evening, 9:45 I think, with fireworks at 10:30.

    Personally, I thought it was kind of much. The lobby was packed with people for the Halloween stuff. My kids got overwhelmed and couldn’t see anything so we went up to the 5th floor and watched from the balcony. It’s a Dance Party basically. If you don’t want to dance, I’d go right at the beginning, get some candy, then move up to watch the rest. It was geared towards young/preschool kids, imo.

    The Pirate party was on the pool deck. It was jam-packed. Bandanas are given to you, most people wore them. Some people were dressed as pirates all day, but I didn’t see many Halloween costumes after the halloween stuff was over.

    My kids dressed as pirates and my son ditched his costume after the halloween stuff because he was hot.

    I don't know about this year but in the past, when the adult costume contest was in the lobby, the actual judging took place up on the platform (I think it's the step to the Royal Palace restaurant). There was no ramp to get to the judging and I didn't see anyone in a wheelchair get picked for the judging - even if they wanted to.

    Presuming this is a 3-night (because it leaves on Thurs), pirate night and the halloween party will be the same night - night 2. I was told by shoreside concierge that the 3-night cruises have both parties the same night, and there are other threads about Halloween on here that are saying the same thing.

    The adult costume party is at 11:15, and it sounds like many adults wore costumes to dinner and then all night until the costume party. It's disney - no one will look at you twice if you wear a costume all night. ;)

    We're going to be on the Dream cruise on the 10th also-- just my wife and I. We plan on wearing our costumes from the afternoon through the end of the night.

    If you see Alice and the Mad Hatter, say hi. :-)
