Bayou Pirates Adventure

Anyone do the Bayou Pirates Adventure out of Port Orleans? We got an email from Disney about this for our upcoming trip next week and thought our 4 year old son might like it. Thoughts? Cost?

My twin 6 year old boys did the Bayou cruise in Sept and loved it. It costs around $30 (not sure of the actual number) and they are gone for two hours in the morning.. They go to different "ports" and look for treasure. I think there is a stop at Old Key West and Downtown Disney. They eat a pb&j sandwich. At the end they get a goodie bag of pirate stuff. It was the highlight of their trip!

My DD-6 and DS-4 did the Bayou Pirate Adventure in May. They both absolutely loved it! They traveled to POFQ, OKW, SSR, and Downtown Disney before returning to POR. It gave DH and I some time to just relax and do some shopping without them.

Just be prepared to hear "ARRRRR" and corny pirate jokes ("What's a pirate's favorite restaurant? ARRRRby's") the rest of the day

My children have done the pirate cruise from The Grand Floridian and they really enjoyed it.

My ds is very outgoing and loves to play with other kids, however, I think I may be a little nervous about leaving my 4 year old in the hands of people I don't know, especially on a boat. As parents how did you guys deal with that. I mentioned the adventure to my ds and he said he would love to do it...

All the kids wear life vests and their guides are lifeguards. We did a split stay at SSR and my kids spotted one of their hosts working the SSR pool.

my 2 DD did this about 2 years ago and they loved it. i loked that the pirate booty wasn't a bunch of candy. and considering that they fed the kids lunch and DH and i got an hour and a half without them i thought the cost was definitely worth it!

I'm hoping our niece loves it. I've read great things about it. She's 7 and very outgoing.
