My DS7 is so excited to do PL for the first time. We arrive on 10/7 at 9am and I booked PL for 1pm. is there only one parade in the afternoon or are there 2? I saw an earlier post about a 2pm parade.

When the Brigade first started it was at 2, but when the hours changed earlier this spring the Brigade moved to about 4:10ish after the League closed. I'm not sure when they plan to host the parade on MNSSHP days as it's gets very packed at 4:00 once the party people enter.

Thanks for the info. I'm hoping for an earlier parade because I would like to be out of MK that day around 4:30. Hopefully others will post their PL experience on MNNSHP days.

Pirate Tutorial Daily Schedule?

We just got back from an August trip, and I caught the tail end of this show. It looked really cool, so I am hoping someone here can fill me in on how it works. We are going back to WDW in March 2011, and I would like to take my 2 boys (11 & then 10) and niece (then 4) to the Pirate League and hopefully get them to participate in this show.

Is it like the Jedi Training Academy? Is there a line/queue for sign ups it or is it randomly chosen children from the crowd? Is there multiple daily shows or is it only a one shot deal?

Thanks in advance for answers. My youngest son has autism so I have to plan ahead and check to see what is a good fit for us to try and what to avoid mentioning. I was thrilled that the Jedi switched to the queue/sign up format since this gave us an opportunity to do it. My youngest would never have understood not getting to particpate in a lightsaber show so we avoided it. I'm thrilled he got the opportunity to do it, and he did so without our assistence (aka my hovering LOL).

I think all 3 would enjoy this as well! It looks like loads of fun.

Pirate Tutorial is typically performed 6 times a day. When I worked there the schedule was 10:15, 11:20, 12:25, 2:15, 3:20, 4:25 (I assume it's still the same now).

It is not as popular as JTA so they do not have advance sign ups. Mack will choose 4 pirates per show, and will typically choose right from the front row. Even if the kids in your group are not picked to fight, he'll select an addition 10 or 15 kids to go up on stage to take a version of the Pirate Oath. Again, he'll pick the kids from the front row, so I'd recommend getting their early and go right up to the stage area.

Thanks so much! That gives me an idea of when to be in the area and how things work. That show was great! Not only were the kids interacting and having a blast, their whole families were into it and then the crowd was joining in-so much fun.

I'm definitely looking forward to some piracy in March 2011!

Thanks Again for the info.

This thread has been a great resource. I just booked this for DD3 for December! She'll love it. She's on a pirate kick lately, and to hear her say "Arrrrr Matey!" is just adorable... so this is right up her alley!!

Ok. Maybe not. Thinking about September 2011. How about sending us a code, Disney?

I have an appointment booked before a MNSSHP. I am always worried about being late for things (though we rarely are). How long will they hold our appointment before declaring us a no-show?

Both my boys did the Pirates League in january and had the time of their life.
The pirates were great to them, as they dont speak english, i was translating what i could to both of them and the oath they just had to say yay after each statment. They still talk about it, and would like to do it again.
BUT, and that is a big but, i havent read this thread till today, and only today i discovered about this parade, certificate and gems. Im sure they would have liked it, but noone in the Pirate's League told me about it. NOT a single pirate, not the one in the reception, not the one that spins the wheel for the name, not the ones (2) that made the makeover, not the one inside Jacks room, not the photographer, not the cashiers.
Im really disapointed.

They'll wait awhile... however... if you show up late, you go to the end of the list, which means your wait will be much longer. A lot of people do not understand that, but they can't keep chairs open waiting for someone to show up. Also, wait times for MNSSHP were sometimes about an hour (with an appointment) so take that into consideration.

The parade was tested in December and was on and off until February. It's very likely they did not have it on the day you visited in January. The gems were not added until after that. Just a couple weeks ago they actually stopped doing it, but a lot of Guests were asking about it so they just brought it back.

Did anyone visit TPL yesterday?

Some of the Cast Members I talked to said there would not be a parade on MNSSHP dates, just wondering if anyone had any news.

I was just wondering if I indeed need a comb. They said he'd need one, as BBB needs one. They don't even touch the hair do they? DS has super short hair, doesn't comb it regularly. lol

No, you don't need a comb. Even if you bring it, they don't use it.

PS - Guess who's going back to the League? I am returning to The Pirates League for two weeks in December (5th-18th). I have to return in order to keep my skills up so that I can stay trained in the location.

If you see me, feel free to say hi!
