The beard is optional on most looks, except the Captain Hook. So they'll start out planning for the full look and if he cannot finish then the Pirate Master just stop where s/he is at.

No need to show your GAC card (that's more for Attractions), but when he gets to his chair, just whisper to the Pirate Master that he has autism and they'll adjust as needed.

He's usually out between 10ish-6ish (except for when he's in the parade). He is not affected by parties - Goofy will change his costume and appear differently at MNSSHP.

No extending hours. At least, no pirates are working the parties... so you can just sit in a room and stare at the wall?

Correct!

You can request a certain pirate gender (many of our girls prefer lady pirates)!

So sorry Becky - my days of piracy are over.

I still visit TPL often to stay connected, but there are other pirates that are now incognito on the boards and they've been offering great tips as well!

In other news - it was originally thought that the Mermaid would return in time for MNSSHP, but since hours are not being extended this year they are going to hold off releasing the updated mermaid until the end of the year.

Berlioz70,

Thanks for the info. I was really hoping PL would extend their hours until 7pm on party nights.

Thanks so much for responding, I feel so much better. I'm sure my little guy will LOVE this!

See you in a few weeks!

I am going to cancel our barbershop appointments on 9/27 for 11am and 11:30am (4 kids total) if anyone wants them PM me and we can arrange a time for me to drop them. I know that the Pirate League is difficult to get this week so the barbershop is a nice back up plan.

For those of you who purchased custome and took them with you were your kids able to change there or did you have to do that before you arrived?

YES!! It is best to change into the costume before checking in. If the league is slow then they may allow you to use the Powder Rooms, but if it's busy they will not. There is no time to change between the pirate paint and the portrait.

We are going to Disney on September 23rd and I got one appointment for my youngest son for the PL on September 26th. My older son has a costume (boney pirate) but I havent gotten him an appointment (all booked up!!). I was thinking about painting his face myself, but it would sure save me some time and effort if I could get his face painted in MK. Do any of the face painting booths in MK do a pirate's face similar to the boney pirate at PL?? Plus, the face paint at the World doesnt itch--when a lot of times the face paint you buy at a halloween shop or something itches like crazy. Any advice that anyone could give me would be GREATLY appreciated!!

We had an amazing experience last week at PL. Our pirate master was exceptional and I would like to file a formal compliment with someone official.
Any idea how to do that?

In a nutshell, this pirate master was working with an older boy and was intense and fun and really into character with him. But when it was DS4's turn, the same pirate master read my son's aprehension perfectly and toned it down to a level that DS4 was not intimidated by and although it took a while, my son started to open up and get more into the spirit of it. (he's usually very outgoing, but i think a little overwhlemed by the experience at first).

I was very impresed by the priate master and his ability to read his "clients" and adjust ... it was really appreciated and I want to let someone know!

thanking in advance for any suggestions on how to get a compliment lodged with the right people!

Tia!

Unfortunately, there are no other face painting locations at MK - it closed with Toontown in 2010.

Send a letter to:

Walt Disney World Guest Communications
P.O. Box 10,400
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830


If you can, provide the Pirate's name. CMs receive special recognition when a Guest takes the time to write a letter about them personally. Additionally, if you feel comfortable sharing his name with me, I can send him a compliment as well. But really the best thing is to send a letter.

Thank you so much! I will send the letter in the morning!
His name was Jason from Memphis, TN and he was working on 9/13.
He was just great and I would be thrilled if you could pass on my graditude. But I will be sending the letter for sure!

thanks again!
