My son wants to know if they will paint the scare on his hand rather than his face.... and yes, I realize this will wash off sooner... just askin'

Also - will they do partial looks? He thinks a black eye is ok, but is not keen on the beard.. and of course wants the scare on his hand... I have NO idea where on earth he got this picky thing from

Thanks!

Thank you SO much! One less thing to stress about for our trip.

My three boys will be doing the Pirates League on our trip... now I'm wishing that I had opted to do it, too.

Good and Bad News.

Unfortunately, the scar must be on the face, they will not draw a full scare any where but the cheek.

However, the beard is optional on the Jack looks (not optional on the Hook), so that will be fine!

Check the first post for current face options. There used to be different package options, but now everyone gets the same package, just the face changes.

The only girl focused option is the Empress, however, girls are welcome to get any of the looks. The Beard is optional for the 3 Jack Looks. In the first post, the Smokey Eye is actually a girl (yes, with the beard).

first slot of the day?

So 9:00 is the earliest appointment? I wish they could start at 8am so we could time it where he could get this done before the pirate scavenger cruise at GF. If I am correct, the cruise goes out at 9:30. We will be going in the summer...

Correct, 9 is the earliest. They've never opened at 8am.

This was given to me by a current TPL CM. We weren't sure when we would be allowed to say anything, but she mentioned that one of the Managers was talking about these upcoming changes with other Guests so she asked me to share it with you all!

The packages are all being adjusted in the coming months. Some of the changes are currently unknown, but its believed that the First Mate option will be losing the fake teeth and will be gaining something else.

The empresses is going through a complete makeover, to make it more piratey and less princessy.

The mermaid is coming back, in a slightly different look and package.

And a new package, based on Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates, will be created for pirates under the age of 3. It will not feature pirate paint, but will include other activities based on the TV show.

All of these changes will come with a slight price increse... rumor is that all packages will be increased by $5, making them $34.95.

I know you'll have tons of questions, but to be honest that's about all I know. Hopefully some of the other Pirate Masters will jump in to provide more info as it becomes available. I think the target is in December, but that's not confirmed.

Hi there. Just to be sure ... they never did extend the hours this year for the Halloween party, right? Trying to figure out how to juggle things and still make this work. There are so many fabulous things to do and you just can't do them all! Just over 2 weeks for us now!

Confirmed Price Hike!

IGNORE THE INFO BELOW, it is incorrect as my travel agent acknowledged that the cost she quoted was a "typo"!! SO SORRY

Thanks Berlioz, you have been confirmed, sadly! Today I got an email from my Dreams Unlimited TA with "Childrens Activities" in it and here's what it said about the Pirate's League - btw I am not a fan of the 40% price hike!

Pirates League
The Pirates League allows boys and girls to transform themselves into Pirates, and allows their dreams to come true as they join Captain Jack Sparrow's crew. Participants receive a pirate identity, are transformed into a pirate by a WDW Pirate Master, and have access to a secret treasure room. They are also able to unlock clues to additional pirate encounters in the Magic Kingdom.

First Mate Package: Includes bandana; choice of facial effects; scars; tattoos; fake teeth; earring and eye patch; sword and sheath;
pirate coin necklace; one 5×7-inch photo; and personalized pirate oath - $49.95 plus tax. No it's $29.95 (for now)

Empress Package: Includes bandana; shimmering makeup; face gem; tattoos; nail polish; earring and eye patch; sword and sheath;
pirate coin necklace; one 5×7-inch photo; and personalized pirate oath - $49.95 plus tax. No it's $29.95 (for now)


So apparently the appointment I booked for DS7 in March 2012 will now cost $49.95... I am ok with the actual fee, but I am seriously questioning what they are doing differently or more now to justify such a big price increase, a photo?

I realize it will be fun and "worth it" but am still surprised and a bit annoyed by the amount of the price change.

IGNORE THE INFO ABOVE, it is incorrect as my travel agent acknowledged that the cost she quoted was a "typo"!! SO SORRY!

When do these new packages and prices take effect? We're set to go in a couple weeks, and for 5 of us, that would be quite a bit more than I'd planned to spend.
