One thing the new price includes that the old price didn't is the photo....we just did the Pirates League 2 weeks ago and we paid extra for the photo. The pirate Leaque experince really was worth it, I thought that the $29 a child I paid was a good deal for what we got. Of course we paid the extra for the photo!

I hope we will have the option to buy or not to buy the photo. I wasn't planning on it. If they did a group photo of the 5 of us, I would get one for sure. But not 5 individuals. We're only going to the MK for one day, for the MNSSHP. So, without extended party hours at pirates league, it will be costing us about $650 just to get in, park tickets plus party tickets, before adding on pirates league costs. We're excited to do it, but it does add up.

NO Confirmed "price hike"

Hello, today my TA emailed me back and said that her email had a "typo" in it regarding the cost of the Pirate's League. I apologize, I assumed that the TA would have the correct costs in her email.... I am annoyed

TA said the following:

There’s a typo in the email I sent you. The current price for the Pirate’s League (always subject to change) is $29.95.

So sorry for the panic about the increase - esp to you ewerstruly!!

My DS7 will be doing the PL for the first time. He is so excited about doing this and has already picked out the face he wants.

I'm happy to read that I will be able to take pictures while he is getting all done up. I also know that he will want to buy the photo at the end.



In 12 days my son will be transformed into a cursed pirate....oh boy

My son and nephew did the Pirates League on 10/8 when it was pouring rain outside. They both wanted the cursed pirate and were told this may be a bad idea because of the heavy rain. In fact, they told us we could cancel at no charge because the rain was so heavy. We almost did cancel but the boys really wanted to do it.

So we went ahead with the cursed pirate and it was worth every penny! The people working there are outstanding and the experience alone is worth the money. My sons face washed off after a few hours in the rain but that was okay. Jack Sparrow and another pirate made the rounds for photos while we were there. My son was thrilled about this. Jack told him he already had a right hand man so he could be his left hand man. It made my sons day.

They did have a problem with the photos that day. We were told we could return later to purchase it for $10 instead of $15, but by the time we made it back around they were closed. I'm a little bummed about that, I would have loved to have that photo. Despite that little hiccup it was an outstanding experience and I highly recommend it to anyone that has Pirates fans in the house.

Actually - what your travel agent is seeing is not a typo - it's INCREDIBLY old. When TPL opened, it was 49.95 for about 10 months (it included the photo, which is now an add on). The price changed in January 2010. My concern is that your travel agent is looking at other old info.

Quick question:

My son and I have PL appts for 1:50 today. It's a party night.

Anyone had issues going in costume, into the parks, that early on a party night? Or are the CM's pretty understanding?

My darling fiance had this done back in July and he chose the cursed pirate and he LOVED it (granted he's 23 years old lol) and had a blast!!! Wish I still had pictures of us all done up but alas my photopass expired and have no way of getting those photos (which truly is a bummer).

You'll be fine. CMs know it's a party night and understand that it's not possible for all Guests to leave and change to come back.

Thanks!

Gerard Warloather (my son) and Benjamin Chipcutter (me) had a GREAT time! The party went off like gangbusters, too.

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.
This is exciting news! I just wish the target could be moved up to late November! I have appointments made for my 4 kids on nov 22! This is a surprise trip for them, I know my 4 yo daughter and 8 year old son are going to love this. I was unsure about booking ressies for my two oldest daughters who are 13 and 15 but I decided to go for it since they are huge POTC fans. Keeping my fingers creased that the mermaid makes an early reappearance!

New guy on the block questions

Berlioz-

I've been reading a lot of posts here since we made our plans to go to WDW, and thought I'd ask this odd question.

Our family will be at WDW in early Nov and was wondering if there was any chance of a "walk-in" during the "less crowded" times the first week in Nov? My nephew is shy and it's sure if he wants to do it. Also, do you have many "big kids" (say around 44!) do the PL?

Thank you in advance for your time and help.
