Unfortunately the mermaid look is not available right now. They are working on re-releasing it in the future. The crew is taking a lot of time out to try to really work the mermaids into the pirate experience. The look will actually be different though.

Right now I'd say look for it closer to early 2012 or maybe December of this year.

thanks for all the wonderful info! ds is finally getting this done on our trip at christmas! hes done the knights package in feb but decided on a pirate this time.

now the down side....were booked for new years eve dd has bbb at 1, ds pl at 2. i know for a fact hers is going to run long-she got that pink spike hair look last time, and i know how badly the bbb runs behind. how much time should i gauge for ds's makeover? im sure new yrs eve will be crazy anyways and if you guys run a little behind i wont be shocked. i am a little concerned about our ressie at 425 for crt tho.

in the mean time ds is over the moon to get to do this! he loves pirates of the carribean(okay i may have had something to do with that), ride and movie, enjoyed scaring terrance in feb when he showed off a pirate shirt to him too. yeah thats my twisted son. we snagged him a pirates costume a few weeks ago at costco and he's set!

I am attempting to read this entire thread, but after 200 posts I've decided to jump on in with a question and hope it's not redundant...

I have an appt for DD7 in Nov and would ideally get a black tee with a blinged out skull and crossbones or similar and maybe even add "Pirate Princess" in bling as well. I realize this probably needs to be a custom order, but I'm just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for something like this?

She's done BBB twice and she definitely leans toward girly, loud (a.k.a tacky) and the more bling or sparkle, the better! I'm not sure I want to invest in yet another costume for $100.00 + and was hoping if I did the tee with maybe a skirt, skull and crossbones leggins (which I did find at Spirit Halloween thanks to an earlier post) and high black boots...that I could get away with reusable separates for less $.

Hi,

DD got a pirate costume that she will be wearing for her PL appointment in Sept. The costume came with a bandana(head scarf) that she would like to wear...will they put her bandana on during the make-over if we choose and just give her the one that comes with the package to take home or is that a no-go? She will be getting the Empress look.

Thanks!

The craft stores by me have TONS of sparkly iron on patterns like this. Check JoAnn Fabrics, Michaels etc.

Hi I have a very different question and I think its probably one that is unlikely to apply to anyone else so I am hoping noone minds me asking on this thread. Last trip I asked on the disabilities board and the answer made me cancel my ressie but people on here seem to have more of an ide of how PL works!

Anyway here goes -
My ds is 10 and lost his eye after a diagnosis of eye cancer he has had many issues which means that he cant wear an artificial eye and the side of his face has a noticeable difference. Would this cause issues in pirates league or would the pirates just paint his face without questions??
He is very self concious about it and I think it would ruin the whole experience if he had to explain why he was missing his eye.

Thanks in advance for any information.

I am guessing they would be great with your son. Maybe you could even make an excuse to get away for a minute and go ahead of him and explain the situation and how self-conscious he is about it. They were pretty great there!

So I completely forgot about this and that I told the kids I would make reservations for them for our trip in September. So I called and checked 9/30 & 9/27 and they are completely booked. I hope someone cancels but I doubt I will get lucky. I hope the kids aren't too upset.

Just back and our kids did the Pirates League. It was by far well worth the cost and was so much fun for them as well as us to watch.
The results were amazing!! After they were "official pirates" they got to walk in a "parade" and got front row at the pirate show they have.

We will totally do this again!!!!!

I think if you let them know prior to your son going in they will recommend what would be the best scenario. It's a ton of fun and I think he will enjoy it. I don't know how your son feels about wearing a patch, but the do give each child a bandana, eye patch, sword and sash...he can wear the patch over his problem eye if they don't put the eye makeup on it.

absolutely. as long as she tells her pirate master that she wants to wear hers, it will be just fine.

Don't be surprised if PL is running behind too. 2 o'clock can be busy sometimes without it being a holiday. However, a 425 at CRT should be fine. Guests are usually told that the experience takes 45 minutes. Include at least a half hour of waiting before the reservation. Maybe more because of the holiday.

Of course, we would paint his face without questions. Our pirates come in many shapes and sizes and we are willing to accomodate anyone. Maybe take a look at the faces with him ahead of time so that he knows what he wants when you arrive, keeping in mind that the cursed pirate and multi-eyed jack looks would require painting in the eye area on both eyes.

I realized that I had forgotten to announce that Pirate Goofy did return, and has replaced Angelica.

I've updated the first post.
