We're getting our pirate makeover on 10/11, which is a MNSSHP day. I had heard that the Pirate's League is open later on MNSSHP days, but when I called to make a later reservation for DS, they said the last appointment was at 3pm, like all the other dates? I was hoping for a later appointment (after naps) like around 5pm given it was a MNSSHP night, but was told that wsn't the case.

So which is it??

Our DD's appointment is at 5.30pm on 3rd October (an MNSSHP night).

I'd try calling back.

Whew - I was able to move our appointment to 5PM. I think he'll do much better with that...and so will we. That way we can spend our time in the morning on the rides and such, and then get the pirate makeover after naptime. Much better scenario!!

Thanks!!

I'm glad you were able to get a better appt. time. Sometimes the people on the other side of the phone do not get information as quick as people on the DISBoards!

I've been two days at the phone with the Pirates League, or rather without. Do they ever pick up the phone??? I just keep getting all this info about rides (which I don't need thank you, I've joined the DIS forums... )

Are you calling 407-WDW-CREW?

The number is one of several that will connect you to the Disney Reservation Center; it is the specific line that typically involves other general reservations (non-Dining). The actual TPL phone numbers are not released to Guests as they do not make reservations at the physical location.

I want to do this while we are at WDW but my DS3 hates even putting on chap stick so doesn't look like we'd be able to do this. I guess when he's older.

We went to WDW back in May. DS9, DS3 and grandpa experienced the Pirates League. We had an excellent experience. Here are few pictures of our pirates. The boys loved every minute of it.









If you would like to see a full report on the Pirates League, you can click on my TR link below. It was well worth the money for this adventure. Would certainly do it again!

Glad you got a more suitable time sorted out. Over the years, I have found that if you get an answer from a reservations CM that you are unsure about, wait a little while and call back!

All your pirates look awesome, but I especially love your DS3's look of concentration while he's making his "hook".

I finally got a reservation for my two little ones I'm sure they'll love it.

The time is 10:30. Is that too early (as in taking precious time for morning rides? ). I'm planning to be in the park at RD that day, do Tomorrowland and then head to the PL (by the railroad), and then hit POTC and other Adventureland attractions after the kids are made up. Does this make sense? How long does the experience take? How earlier do we need to be there?

hstrickland, your pirates look GREAT! I guess July would be too hot for those costumes... they look fantastic.

Sweet!

We have had the pirate league booked FOREVER! AND the pirate cruise that night!!

However, it suddenly occured to me that if I made my Canadian girls wear costumes in the Florida August, there might be a mutiny!

So we ended up ordering matching pirate tshirts that our black but in our "styles" - black sleeveless (man), black vneck (me!), black tshirt (my tomboy) and black tank (my princess) - with our pirate names in cursive on the back (ie King Chris and Lady Morgan ...

Has anyone else done anything like this?? I can't even envision pictures - share!! :D I had my heart set on costumes and had them picked out, but then common sense struck me. And I don't want no mutiny on my ship.... Arrrg....

I am slightly torn.. and Im not sure if there is a solution. DD has an apt at BBB for the castle package with photoshoot at 810am. DS's apt at PL is at 9am. I am hoping to go get some pictures of him before he is done. Then I read that Pirate goofy will be there for pics (I am hoping PP photographers will be there) cuz I will have the camera, and dh will have the vid camera. After DD's apt we want to try and beat the lines and get to the princess and the frog meet and greet at 10.
I should assume I wont make it down to POTC between right? Hmph. I could always bring DS back to the POTC area to get pics later on in the day... Trying to plan it without taking up our whole day so we do rides. (hopefully it wont be too hot this day... never been down there in Oct.)

Pricey but fun, enjoyed it far more than the Dessert Party!
