If staying at a Disney resort, it follows the same 180+10 rule as dining reservations, but if you are staying off site, you can make it 180 days from the date you want the appointment.

Bandana is sold in the front part of the shop - so that's no problem. I would just ask the Pirate Master for your DD3 about the tattoo... they don't sell them, but I know I've personally given out a few free ones. The PM might even put it on for her!

Berlioz,

We have a 3 p.m. appt in June. Any chance they will open up later appt times? I was really hoping to take an afternoon break.

Thanks,

Stephanie

The Pirate League is only open 9am to 4pm. At 4 there is a parade through the Pirate store for all the kids that had an appt that day.

They release all appointments at the same time, so if there's nothing available now then it's just trying everyday in the hopes that someone cancels. Sorry!

Just a question about how many people can do the league at the same time.? Am planning on taking my son, nephew, three nieces and myself my sister-in-law says she wants to do it too with the kids. Can they do big groups or do you have your appointments back to back.

Also anyone have experience taking an autistic child? My son is autistic but loves pirates especially Jake and his gang. Thought he would enjoy the experience but don't know how the cm would react to him as he doesn't have much language. He has had his face painted before so am not worried about that.

Check the first post regarding how the League handles big groups.

As for the child with autism, Pirates get several children daily that have a variety of things that make them special. They are prepared to work with them and most never even notice a difference between the experiences. You may want to mention it at the check in desk, some of the Pirate Masters are more equipped than others and they will try to pair the child up with the perfect Master. Have fun!

I called at 180 days and got a 3 and a 3:30 pm I was just hoping they would add later appts for the summer months. Do they add any past 3:30 during the summer or only for MNSSHP?

Thanks!!

Only MNSSHP. 3:30 is the last appointment during regular operating hours.

Not sure if this has been asked or not, can this be paid with a Disney gift card? I booked today for my Ds and would rather use a gift card since I have some saved already. This way I can leave my cash for non-Disney things like in DTD.

Yep. I paid for our makeovers and photo packages with gift cards, but I did give cash tips.

So I hope no one takes this the wrong way (Im not trying to be rude) but is it customary to tip at PL? We never do table service, so hardly tip in the parks. I might not have thought of that. Thanks for the heads up! What amount do most people tip?

I'm not sure if everyone tips or not, but I tipped $5 to each of our pirates. Wasn't quite 20%, but it was nice and easy to just have a couple of $5 bills to hand off.
