It looks like a glitch in the reservation system. They have still not decided if they are going to be open late for parties, but the system is allowing DRC to book reservations. I think they would like to stay open, but at this time there is not enough staffing to do so. It'll probably be awhile before a final decision can be made.

I made a reservation yesterday for 5 p.m. on Oct. 7...a party night. Will someone let me know if it gets canceled? I will try to get him an earlier reservation if so...but we will be so sad. It seemed like a perfect set-up for right before the party.

I should add that the CM making my reservation said there was a note on her computer that said the league had extended hours on specially ticketed nights...or something like that. At first she didn't think she could make one past 3:30 and was surprised she was able to and then read that note to me and said she was glad to know it.

OK, I just HAD to come on here & post about our experience at the Pirate's League. Last year, we did BBB on our trip & my youngest daughter really wanted to go back, but since my son went to BBB & got the "Cool Dude" last year, I thought it was only fair that we do the pirate's league this time. My oldest daughter & my son were totally excited about it, but my youngest daughter cried. Well, after their experience, even my youngest daughter said that the Pirate's League was her favorite thing from the entire trip & was much, much better than BBB.

The CMs here are so amazing - so nice & sweet to the kids - in character the entire time & so funny. The girl who checked us in & got the kids their "pirate names" decided how to match the kids up with the CMs & she was spot on - my oldest daughter got the "crazy CM" & my oldest is such a ham herself that she totally loved this. My youngest is a girly girl & was matched up with the sweetest CM. My son is SUPER shy & his CM joked around with him the whole time but was also very aware of how shy my son is & so he didn't come on too strong, but was just very sweet & silly with him. My son didn't say a lot during the experience b/c he is so shy, but he can't stop talking about it ever since. Also, ALL of the CMs made a big deal about the fact that he was wearing pirate crocs & he got a kick out of that.

I can not stress enough how worth the $$$ this experience is. My husband & I couldn't have been happier with our experience. My youngest lost her earring about 20 minutes after we left & I walked back in and told them & they replaced it - no charge.

OH - and I am SO glad that Brenna mentioned somewhere (either on this thread or somewhere else on the dis) about using shaving cream to remove the eye makeup for the skeleton face - NOTHING else would take it off - make up remover, eye cleanser, baby wipes - it wouldn't budge & then I remembered about the shaving cream & it worked! Thank goodness - we had breakfast reservations the next morning & the "black eye" look wouldn't have worked!

Sorry for so many pictures - with three kids it was hard to narrow the pics down & still show how cool this experience was!

Here's hoping you get to keep your ressie. I will probably try calling later tonight to try to get a ressie for our DD for our MNSSHP night.

I'll update if I have any success.

Please do not apologise for sharing those awesome photos - it helps the rest of us with our planning! You can really tell by your children's expressions that they had a fabulous time!

What a wonderful review - I shared your picture with the Pirates. Glad to know the shaving cream worked out. I have personally never tried it, but some of the male pirates swore by it!!

As far as I know they are continuing to book reservations up to 7:10 (I tried to book a couple in the system and it allowed me to). I contacted the Manager to see if she knew or could give me any information that I can share - still have not heard back. If anything, book it at the later time and if it doesn't work someone will contact you!

Captain's package

Has anyone got any information on the "Captain" options - $125 including costume? I signed myself my fiance and my two daughters (10 and 12) to do this together, but I haven't seen ANY info on it anywhere!? Is this really new? The CM told me we had our choice of any costume with the package!

The Captain's package was discontinued earlier this year. There is only one package available ($29.95), with the option to add on the costume. See the first post for options.

Thank you! My oldest daughter's costume is one we bought a few years ago from Kmart for a Pirate Party. We added those straps b/c the off-the-shoulder part didn't want to stay in place and could be a bit revealing when she moved sometimes. My youngest daughter didn't want to do the Pirate's League unless I found her a pink pirate costume I think I bought it at buycostumes dot com. I waited until I had an online coupon & I think I got 15% off. I also bought my oldest daughter's necklace & bracelet (skulls) there. She thought they were cool! Of course, I didn't realize that they got a bracelet at the PL, but it's still nice to have the accessories in case the kids need to dress up another time.

Pirate Goofy

I had heard there was a new Pirate Goofy meet.
He looks great!

Is he only for guests who use the Pirates League?
Or can anyone swing by for a picture?
And where exactly is he located?

He's for everyone! He was right next to the entrance to PL, which is right next to the PoC ride & gift shop!
