Just wondering if this Magic Kingdom fast food restaurant has been open lately? It was closed last summer. I adore their tacos. Just curious. :)

I like the tacos and nachos there too -- Can anyone help us out with info about the "Pirates" resturant:teeth:

It was open at Christmas. My husband missed it when it was closed last summer as that is his favorite too. A taco sald there and a citrus swirl for dessert is a ritual for us each visit :)

We were just there at the end of February and El Pirata was closed. We were very disappointed. This made for long, long lines at Pecos Bill's where we don't like the food nearly as well.

I'm hoping this is only a temporary thing. The MK brochure said El Pirata was open 'seasonally'. Boo. Hiss.

Was not open in Jan or Feb when we were there

It is too bad since it had some of the healthier choices at MK

We were there 12/16-12/24/04. It was closed 12/16-12/19 and reopened 12/20. I guess they close during value season (less busy periods).

I can't recall the last time I saw them open.
Tonight in the MK, a CM told us in around a week the parades will be on nightly. So wondering if El Pirata will start opening. (larger crowd theory) :confused:

We also love the Pirate and Parrot--it hasn't been open in either of the last two years we were visiting. We are usually at WDW the late 2nd and all of 3rd week in June. We've missed it! It was also closed when my husband and son were there in April 03.

It was closed while we were there at the end of Feb, however when we picked up a times guide for Feb 29-March 6th, it showed it being open over the weekend that was coming up. As I understand it, it's basically only open during peak seasons when the crowds are expected to be heavy. We were disappointed, as we were pretty sick of the hot dogs/hamburgers that everyone else has in that park.
