    Pirates and Princesses party

    So I am new here and am getting married next month. We are going to WDW for our honeymoon! I got us tickets to the Pirates and Princesses party because I am basically a giant 4 year old. haha. So heres my question, do adults dress up too? I really want to, but I don't want to look like a freak!

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you! Might you know where to get a hold of a nice costume without spending a boat load of money?

    I'd suggest "thinking outside the box". Create a "princess" outfit by wearing a sparkley top, a filmy skirt, some sparkley sandels, and a crown/tiarra. Your "pirate" can wear ragged black cut-offs, a striped shirt, eye-patch, and sew small plush parrot to his shoulder. I always go comfort over costume no matter what. Of course if you want the full "look", check a goodwill type shop near you. Unless you know someone from whom you can borrow costumes, it's probably going to cost you....and do you want to give up suitcase space for an uncomfortable costume that you only need for several hours?
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    Adult daycare for the kid inside you.

    I agree with Mini-V, don't spend a bundle on a costume that you are going to sweat to death in at the parks because you want to go to the attractions and ride the rides.

    I am going in 11 days and Pirates & Princess is our first night there. I am wearing a pink top, a skort, a tiara, and a Princess sash! My husband is going to wear a Pirates t-shirt we bought from Disney online which has his name on it.

    We dress up for Mickey's not so scary halloween party as well! The more simple the costume, the better!
