Hi everyone, we go to PL in late Oct. What do your little ones normally wear? Costumes, tshirts? Not sure which way to go with it....

We went in August and DD wore a pirate themed black strappy tank and lacy skirt, DS wore a POTC costume t-shirt and shorts with skulls print.

I just want to put this out there.
Friday we did the Pirates League. I was hoping one of my girls would do the new scary mermaid, but to no avail they both did the Mermaid package. We were attending the Halloween Party, so we had our appointment booked for 5pm

I am so glad we did these. The experience was amazing. The two pirates applying the makeup were awesomely fun. My girls looked beautiful when they were transformed. I ordered them each a costume off of ebay before we went, and the costumes went perfectly with the makeup.

We did end up getting suckered into purchasing the pictures though because the camera guy did a phenomenal job with the quality of the picture and the portrayal of each girl.

I highly recommend this place

DD will just be wearing a Jake shirt from the Disney Store with shorts and DD will be wearing an aqua dress from Sears for her mermaid makeover. Their PL makeovers are a surprise. Not everyone dresses the part, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. Have fun!

Has anyone ever purchased the costumes that they sell onsite? I believe they are 65$ Are they worth it or should we find something before leaving for Disney?

Another thing... You guys think it's going to be alright if I take two little pirates to dinner at 1900 Park Fare??

Thanks!

Personally, I have a hard time spending that much on a costume, but even more so than that, I would be afraid they would not have the correct size in stock once I got there. I try to have everything I need prior to the trip to lessen the stress. As for your meal, it will be just fine to take them after PL. In fact, they will probably get tons of attention from the characters. Have fun!

Ds is wearing a $10 pirate costume from dollar general, and he's going to CRT for dinner that night! I'd bring a costume with you.

Also be aware that your DD/DS might not want the makeup on all day. We left the park soon after DD and DS got their PL makeovers and when we got to the room DS wanted to be "himself" again so he washed his face. I was not mad with him at all as I felt the experience and photos were totally worth it.

I bought everyone Pirate shirts for our trip to Pirate's League.....the trip is a surprise so I didn't want them to wear costumes or anything. We wear matching shirts just about every day of our trip, so they just think I've decided on Pirate shirts for our MK day LOL

Does anyone have any pictures from the image package they could post? I'm curious what the back round looks like. My son has a Killer Captain hook Costume he is wearing one night. Wondering if the back round is neat pirate ship or anything??? Can you go in and pay for just a picture package. His face will already be done up lol
