Pirate Party at Sea

On select nights aboard Disney Cruise ships, Guests may enjoy a Pirate Party. The night before the party, each Guest receives a fun Mickey themed pirate bandana in their state room.

Guests are invited to dress like a pirate and enjoy a fun evening full of hearty feasts, live entertainment, fireworks right off the side of the cruise ship, and a dance party that even the roughest pirate could not join in dancing a little pirate jig.

Sweet Mermaid Treats

To end your great pirate feast, enjoy a sweet treat from the beauties of the sea. These Mermaid Tail cookies will be a great treat for all pirates to enjoy.

Here is a list of the ingredients that you will need to make these adorable cookies:


  1. Print the template and cut it out. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 1/4″ thickness then use the template and a knife to cut out mermaid tail cookies. Bake the cookies according to the package directions and let them cool.
  2. Working with one cookie at a time, spread cooking icing on the tail fin. Then spread more icing on a 2-inch section of the tail, just above the fin and gently press candies into it, arranging them close together to resemble scales. Continue frosting and decorating the rest of the tail a section at a time until you reach the top. Or, you can simply sprinkle colored sugar on the icing in place of the candy.
  3. Set the cookies aside until the icing hardens. Then use food decorator pens to embellish tail fins with colorful lines if you like.

Helpful hint:

“if the store-brand of dough is too soft to hold the cookie shape during baking, you can knead in extra flour to stiffen it before rolling it out.”
