Can't wait to do this! My BFF, her kids and I will be joining the ranks in September. I've had the ressie since May and they gave us different times, about 30 mins apart. Still, it's going to be so much fun!

Now I am just looking for an appropriate pirate/jolly roger t-shirt to wear.

It's a way for them play their 1676 character and help them sound confused, but they should not be mean or condensing (which I know they do sometimes).

I know this will not make up for your visits, but thank you for sharing your comments so the pirates can work on those characters for the future.
Thank you, Berlioz, for saying something. I do appreciate it. I would hate for another little girl to feel badly about her makeover because of this bit.

Question:

We have a ressie for 3 on the 11th of October (a party night).

That's probably going to end up being for 2 because of some extenuating circumstances that have cropped up with my parents (who are not coming along, it sounds like, now).

Should I call and modify? Or should we show up the day of and just let them know at the desk?

I don't want to lose our booking for my son and I but don't want to inconvenience the League, either.

If you cancel at the desk you will be charged; so I recommend canceling in advance, the others on the board will appreciate it!

Thanks!

My worry was that, like ADR's, you have to cancel the whole reservation and rebook...which I don't want to have to do.

As long as I can just modify the existing reservation, and keep the "2"....that's what I'll do.

You should be able to cancel just one, we do it all the time for scared kids who still have siblings that want to go through.

Since you have a group of 3, I'm guessing you've got one double and one single reservation (since you cannot book 3 in one party). Just have them cancel the single.

Yup, 2 doubles, one single.

We'll call tonight to cancel, probably.

Is anyone looking for a ressie on the afternoon of Oct 11th? If so, let me know. I can "coordinate" so we cancel and you can call.

Sorry if this has been asked before, I just cannot go through almost 700 posts...

Is the Garb shift always available for purchase? We wouldn't want to arrive expecting to be able to buy one and find that it is not available. My grandson is age 10, if size is an issue.

Thanks

Hey Berlioz, do you sell this shirt at PL? My son saw it on the Disney Store website and really wants it to wear for his appointment. I notice it says Disney Parks Authentic. That must explain the $24.95 price tag. I would never pay that price for a shirt unless I was in the park. However if it's something you sell I may go ahead and order it because he would be crushed if he got there and you didn't have it. He wants a Jack Sparrow hat too but I have less of a problem with him waiting for that one since the one on the site shows the dreads, I would prefer he try it on and see if he still wants it.

I have an apt. for 11:50 for my son and noon for myself on sept. 13 th. Could not get later. He wants the cursed pirate look. Since we are going to MNSSHP that night, I wanted to head back to hotel after so my 4 year old could get much needed rest before the party.
Do you think his makeup will last?
Also do you think we can be seated one next to the other?
I bought him a skeleton glow in the dark PJ from old navy for $14. He is so excited to become a cursed pirate.

Yep, they sell it. I agree, buy it in advance!

Sleeping in a cursed? No, I can't imagine it would last. The white comes of pretty easily with water, so I wouldn't trust it.

You can request to sit together, but be warned, it can greatly increase your wait time. They cannot hold chairs, so if one opens they have to fill it. So they would have you wait until two open at the same time, and that gets more difficult.

It may be easier to have him get started and then you request to wait until one of the chairs near him is open for yourself. Again, it varies based on the specific chair and how busy it is.
