    Hi, first time cruiser here, and I just had a question about the policy for weapons, I know I can't bring a real one to have with my costume for pirates night, and I can't have a "realistic looking" fake weapon, but I was wondering about a wooden sword, its about 34" long, and its not painted or anything and it looks like wood, but I wanted to see if anyone knew it was ok. Thanks for any help you might have :-)

    I'm guessing that as long as it doesn't seem to be something that could be used as a weapon, you'd be OK; but I don't know for sure.

    As an aside--how dressed up are you planning for pirate night? My DH and I have some pretty detailed costumes but are still trying to decide if it's more just kids that dress up rather than adults. pirate:

    Edit: I just checked the Disneycruise site, and it says that sports equipment, like pool cues, aren't allowed. Might be too close to be brought aboard?

    Hmm, yeah maybe.

    Well its my first cruise, but my parents have been on several and they've always dressed up to various degrees, and in some of the pictures I've seen there are people that get pretty dressed up. My boyfriend and I are going as all out as we can.

    It's not just for kids. I've seen some pretty intricate costumes

    They sell plastic swords in the gift shops, honestly, since they arent's expensive, I'd get one of those for your costume rather than hoping that DCL allows what you're bringing, then you know it's allowed! They aren't expensive either.

    Our friend who cruises and looks more like Captain Jack than DCL's Jack always packs his swords -- and they are not plastic or wood. He was called down to security in 2006 but has since cruised without issues, even on the Med & WBTA twice.
