BECOME A PIRATE IN THE PIRATES LEAGUE IN THE MAGIC KINGDOM

We had gone to Disney World a couple times before hearing about the Pirates League in Adventure Land at the Magic Kingdom.  It felt like a hidden treasure the first time we went, we had known all about becoming a princess and a knight at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, but this wasn’t of interest to my boys.  However, the Pirates League was a perfect attraction for my Pirates of the Carribean fanatics!
If you have a Jack Sparrow or Jake and the Neverland Pirates fan, this is a must do while in Walt Disney World!  The boys had so much fun, and their faces throughout the entire experience were priceless.

WHERE IS THE PIRATES LEAGUE

The Pirates League is located right next to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Adventure Land at The Magic Kingdom.  It felt as though it was tucked away when we first visited, however, the check-in desk is located outside of the door which helped us figure out where to start our pirate journey.

HOW TO BECOME A PIRATE AT THE PIRATES LEAGUE

I highly recommend making reservations before getting to Disney World by calling (407)WDW-STYLE.  Both times we have visited The Pirates League they were booked up completely, and very thankful we had made the reservations in advance.  Once you have your reservations, simply arrive at your scheduled time and head to the check-in counter where you will pick your package and makeup style.  Then you will be brought inside to a uniquely cool pirate world, where you will be given a new pirates name, sign the declaration, and begin your pirate transformation.

OUR EXPERIENCE AT THE PIRATES LEAGUE

We checked in outside and chose the pirate package we wanted,  During our first visit, it was a cold January day so we added the pirate costumes to our package.  However, when we did The Pirates League again during the summer months, the kids didn’t want to wear the costumes because it is so hot in Orlando in August.  If you’re visiting during the hotter months I would say save your money and go for a smaller package that is just as adorable! 

The first year, I was also planning a princess and pirate-themed birthday for the twins so the costumes got a lot of love even after we left Disney World.
For this experience, they had us set up in a changing room before meeting our Pirate, so the boys could change into their cool new uniforms.

Next, the kids received their official pirate names and signed the large pirate book.

After the little pirates where named, we got to move along into where all the fun begins.  Our stylists introduced themselves to the boys and got to pick the pirate faces they wanted.  Anthony wanted a complete pirate transformation.

Aidan, on the other hand, is not a fan of face paint, the idea of it usually causes a complete meltdown.  However his pirate stylist was amazing with him, she took it very slowly, really connected with him and he ultimately agreed to a little cut on his cheek, which he was very proud of.  He kept asking to look at it for the rest of the day.  These are the types of memories autism moms dream of when planning Disney vacations.

Once the boys looked the part it was time to take their Pirate Oaths, which they both agreed was hilarious!

After your pirate transformation, and you’ve taken the pirate oath, you are able to enter the “secret” room to learn about a hidden treasure and get the boy’s pictures taken.
Once the boys were official pirates and new all about the pirate’s secret treasure, it was time to check out, where the boys received their Pirates Pledge with their pirate names on it.  This is an adorable keepsake, that the kids loved showing everyone.

Pirates Special Treatment

This was so much fun and like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, the fun doesn’t end after the makeover!  On all the Disney buses they played a special announcement saying there was a pirate on board and all the cast members called them Pirate’s throughout the day.

The Pirates League is another one of those incredible Disney experiences that are unique and cool, which make memories that last a lifetime!

    Your kids surely must have had a lot of fun! Everything was very realistic, and even the make-up seemed real. They must have definitely felt like pirates for a day! Nice idea for a dress up party. Thank you!
