First, I wanted to say hello to everyone. I've posted to the Parks forums in the past but this is my first post in the cruise forum. We just decided to take a cruise to Alaska in July 2013. I'm totally inexperienced when it comes to Disney's cruises so am hoping you all will be able to help us over the next year and 1/2 while we wait for our cruise. We're trying to figure out which week in July and was wondering if anyone has been on a Disney cruise during 4th of July. Do they have any special fireworks to celebrate? Also, are the fireworks a nightly event or just part of the Pirates party. And that brings up another question. Is the Pirate party on board ship a nightly thing or just certain evenings? Would appreciate any help anyone can give us. Thank you in advance.
