We have our MNSSHP tickets, which means we can enter the park at 4 pm. Our PL appts are beginning just after 2 pm. So, to do this, we'd have to buy over $400 in extra park tickets for just our pirates league experience from 2-4pm or so, plus the cost of the pirates league. We're trying to decide if it's worth nearly $600 to do this. My heart is broken over it. If I do cancel, I'll post here and let you know, give a heads up for anyone needing an appt. on that day. And, either way, I'll post a photo of the pirate costumes I worked so hard on.
When you make your decision would you please inbox me? And if you do decide to cancel could you let me know before you do it? I have been trying to get two or three appts. for my children that day 2pm or later. I truly feel bad if you can't make it though! I hope that you are able to make the best decision for you and your family

has the process changed in getting names? we were there last year and my triplets were scheduled. well one chickened out..
as for the names yes it is surprising magical. they still ended up with the same last names!!

I requested a certain pirate(s) to do the transformation would you actually get them? im there Nov 16th for two out of triplets. DD wants pixi dust from the barber.

I'm betting that it wasn't you, then. My little one kept squinching up, but my older boy kept giggling every time his pirate master came close to his mouth with the black makeup... to the point that she actually had someone else come over to see if they could have better luck with his nonsense. This after the chore of him and his silly refusal to take his baseball cap off!

Again, sorry to the short, outspoken brunette pirate master that had to deal with him!

The process is still the same.

You are welcome to request a pirate... but sometimes it can take a little longer if that Pirate Master is with another recruit. Pirates do not paint everyday, so sometimes requests cannot be honored if they are performing a different role.

I have a 3 year old who likes Jake and the Neverland Pirates. She would like to be made up as a pirate. However, she is not into POTC at this age. Is Pirate's League something we should reserve for a future trip?

Thanks!
Stacey

Gonzo - when is your trip? A couple pages ago I talked about a Jake look coming to TPL, so depending on when your trip is, it may work out just fine.

Jake look

My daughter did this in May and still talks about it, so I scheduled appointments for her and her cousins for our trip in January. Unfortunately my youngest son is 2 and couldn't participate so I did not make him an appointment. After reading about the Jake package for kids under 3 I was wondering if I could go ahead and schedule an appointment stating his age as 3 so he could join in the fun. He loves Jake so I think he would have a blast!

Hello there, if the Jake package does come through then absolutely. I would make an appointment for him regardless. We are all very knowledgeable on Jake and NLP and have had many 2 year olds come in and get all the Pirate stuff just no pirate paint

Hi there. I just wanted to share the pirate outfits I finished for our family of 5 to wear to the pirates league and MNSSHP ... since it looks like none of the pirate masters may get to see or meet us now (frown). I hate to give up our reservations. I called the very day my ADR window opened. So, gfamluvsdisney, we will likely cancel all of our 5 appts for October 27th. They begin at 2:20 and are back to back. I will let you know in the next day or so. If only we could get in for our 2:20 appt. with the MNSSHP tickets ... or if only party hours would have been extended. We were REALLY looking forward to this (my two youngest boys LOVE pirates and getting their faces painted) ... but it's just too much $$$, I think for the one day we'll be in Florida. 5 extra park tickets for us for just the 2-4 pm length of our pirate makeovers (we already bought party tickets) is really hard to swallow. Though very tempting. Anyway ... here's what I made for us ...
