Does this make sense? How long does the experience take? How earlier do we need to be there?
That should be plenty of time for Tomorrowland at RD, you can check in up to 15 minutes early (and 10 minutes late). See the first post for information on times.

A lot of families wear matching shirts or pirate themed shirts! One note, you'll get your pirate name during the experience so the name on your shirt will not match your official name for the day.

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.
Pirate Goofy does not come out until 10:10, and he does typically have a PP.

Subscribing -- I know it sounds a little goofy but my DD and I both are participating in the Pirate's League before the MNSSHP. We are going to be a familyof pirates that night for the party. It will be a new experience for us at WDW. We usually go to Disney in the middle of summer but this year we wanted to plan our trip a little later in the year.
I am looking for some great costumes for My DH, DD and I that won't break the bank - any great ideas anyone?

Have a Disney Day, Renee

We LOOOOVE The Pirate's League! It is wonderful! Our DS joined the League while DD did her BBB make-over! We went a few months after they opened! He was 4 1/2 at the time and they make such a fuss over the little guys!! He felt soooooo special! Afterwards, he recieved twice as many compliments throughout the park than our "jasmine" did (DD)! We are going back to WDW for DS's 6th Birthday and the PL is all he can talk about!!! DD even wants a pirate make-over this time instead of a princess make-over (AND she is VERY girly!!!.... that is just how VERY cool it is!!!)

Here are a few pics from our last visit:

DS will be turning 3 in September and we're going in December. Do you think he'd enjoy it or should I hold off until October 2011 when he'll be 4? I don't know if he'd get much out of it now. Let me know what you think! Thanks!

I posted a simular question a little while ago. My DS turns 3 at the very end of Sept and we are going to the Very end of Nov/ early Dec. Everyone encouraged me to go for it. I have made the appt and have been talking about it with him. He is sooooo excited. That is all he can talk about some times. I am glad I made the appt and I think he will be fine.

When I called to make the reservation the CM told me, if I could, take him by the day before or before his appt. Let him look around a little. If he seems scared we can just cancel. Its not the same as a no show.

YES!!

Some 3 year olds are great and then the 9 year olds are too scared, it really depends on the kid. That's why you are not charged for scared kids! I say better safe with the appointment than being sorry if it's full and they do not take walk-ins.

I LOVE your photos! We are going in December and My youngest DS (3) wants to do this but my oldest DS (5) is not so sure about it. I guess if he chickens out I will have to do it instead.... I think it looks like so much fun! I will be more than happy to take his place, but I want him to do it SO BADLY!

YES.... I think you will be pleasantly surprised with a 3 year old! Granted my son was 4 1/2 the first time he did it, BUT the CMs still treated him very differently than even the 8 and 9 year olds. They were soooooooo good with him! They kinda tested him out on each phase of the make-over before jumping in with both feet. My husband sat with him the entire time. DS had a hard time repeating the entire oath at the end, but they went nice and slow and worked him through it! DS was SOOOOO proud that he did a "big kid" (in his eyes) thing. He still talks about being a "member" of the Pirate's League! Like others have said as well... you can always feel him out by stopping by the day before and see if he shys away from it all. I think you both will love it though! There were lots of kids coming and going in this preschool age group!

ALSO.... if your little guy has a melt down throughout the day and the make-up gets messed up... NEVER fear! You can take him back for a touch up before the pirate parade in the afternoon! Our DS had a melt down with tears and all after lunch. His skeleton pirate face (see pics in pp) was a mess. We stopped back for the parade and the guy that did his make-up came up to him and said "I used to know this little pirate! Would he like a touch up?" So we got one FREE OF CHARGE! We tipped them well of course though! Just an FYI! :-)

Question

What time is the pirate parade? We our doing our Pirates League makeover in the early evening so we will be ready for MNSSHP at 7pm that night. Will we miss the parade altogether. As you can tell, we are totally new to the Pirates League. We've done BBB three times but our DD decided to go pirate this year.

Thanks for all the replies! I went ahead and booked for my DS and DH. I don't know which one is more excited! DH even suggested that I get it done too, so I called back today but since they can't add me to the reservation, I'll be going at 3pm and they're due at 3:10. I figure that way DS can see what all they'll be doing and it might reassure him in case he's having any doubts. THANKS!

The CM told me it happens at 4pm and that's why the last appt. is at 3:30 for the day. HTH

As mentioned, it is at 4:10ish. Due to other activities, I doubt the parade will be pushed back on party nights even though the League is open until 8.

Check it everyone together and they will try to get you all in about the same time. The system only allows two people per 10 minutes in order to keep the chairs rotating all day, but of course it's a not a computer doing the check in process. The pirates try to keep paying groups together because then it's just the one bill at the end, which is easier for everyone.

After reading this thread, I decided to go ahead and book my older two kids for the Pirate's League. They are going to be super excited. Thanks for all the great info and pictures!

Actually on MNSSHP days, they stay open later. Our appointment is at 5:20pm. I wonder if we will miss the parade altogether?
