After an hour of being in the make-up in the hot sun, DS wanted it off. He was sweating and it started itching him.

Same here. Literally 45 min after it was done he was crying to get it off. Didn't bother me because he had such a blast while they did it. Just be prepared for that and don't get mad at them. The giggles he had transforming into a pirate were worth the 40 bucks!

Hi! Not sure if this is where I should post this but I just cancelled our Pirate's League appointment for October 16 at 1:00. My DS decided he wanted to be a ninja instead of a pirate. Hope someone can use this!

Nope - it's an exclusive spot for those who do TPL, you can't even see it until completing the experience as it's hidden.

However, there is a spot just outside of the League that you may be interested in using... it used to house a Goofy Meet and Greet but is now vacant:

thanks for the tip! I called and try to find out if they were going to be open for my mnsshp party and it doesn't look like it. it's the first time I've called a reservation line and actually had someone kind of the rude to me. I told him about several the people on here having late reservations on some of the party nights. he pretty much called everybody a liar and that they always close at 4 o'clock. He sounded older as well as short tempered I couldnt wait to get off the phone with him! I think its probably because my party is on a Sunday night. Idk.... Anyway couldnt fit it in our trip...

Did you get that CMs name? I would contact Guest Communications regarding his behavior - TPL is INDEED open late on MNSSHP nights.

You can always call again, the chances of getting the same person is pretty slim.

Ds did pirates league on 9/30. He had the best person ever do his makeover. It was awesome, she was so good with him. I'm so bummed I forgot her name I'd love to send a letter or something letting Disney know how great she was.
Pl was a great experience the building and everything is amazing, even dd wanted to cancel her bbb appt for that day to go to PL.

I know he said his name at the beginning of the call. But I didn't write it down. I've called 3 or 4 times prior, for ADR, to revise ADR, To change the meal plan, I've always been seriously impressed the the curiousness and attention they have given. Even one call i made like 13 different reservations, I though wow their going to hate me, but not at all it was like I made her day lol. The end of my call was "Have a Magical Day" didn't even get that or any other cute ending to the call lol.

I think I'll call again. I know its late notice, but maybe an opening. All I can do is try. The party is on a Sunday, you still think they are open late that day?

You were right! Called and 100 times better experience. Yes its open till 7 during the party I'll be at. Unfortunately all booked up at the moment. She told me I'm most likely to get a canceled reservation just a few days a head of the party to call 2-3 days before the party. Also said it would be fine for me to walk up check see during the party if they had room. She also wished I had the name of the CM from my last call. And SO DO I!

The 1st guy actually told me not to walk up and see if they had any cancellations. That they require reservations. WOW!

I'll be calling back, If any one has a reservations night of the 28th they need to unload, Keep me in mind! We added this party to our trip just last week or I would have made the reservation months ago with my others.

Thanks for the help everyone!!

My DD ended up changing afterwards - we planned for her to wear a purple tank and pink mermaid skirt but were running late and didn't have time for her to change but then we ended up buying Ariel's ballgown anyways because we ate at CRT afterwards. I saw girls with the Mermaid makeover and Ariel's outfit with the outfit that looks like fins (this was on a MNSSHP party night so not sure if it's like that as much during the day)

Just had tank tops on...it was really hot, so I am sure they would have melted down in a hot costume....

One was a pirate and on mermaid...i think they had more fun there than bbb!

I think the makeup depends on the child

I am concerned if the make-up will stay on all day. My DS wants to do the parade at 4pm.
Has anyone did it early and still have a full face of make-up at the end of the day?
I did ask when I booked it and of course she says the make-up will be fine, but I'm looking from experience. You think he'll be good still at 4pm?

Thanks
Our nine year old sweats like there is no tomorrow in the heat...she had the mermaid package..and 30 mintes later, she was starting to look like she had been crying....lol. What a mess...lol.

Our five year old, however, was fine as the empress...

Enjoy the Entire Event!

Our son was transformed into Jake in April 2012. We returned in July and did not do TPL as we feared it would be too hot. The Jake make-up is very minimal and the easiest to deal with all day long, but the Jake hair is really hot! Even in April he wanted to take off the hair from time to time. We are returning in December and he is excited to become Jake again.

I’m certain we will make it a three-peat in April 2013 and have him transformed into Jake. It is well worth the price. Video or take many, many pictures of the process and value the process (Pirate name, Pirate signature book, Pirate Oath and transformation), not simply the final product. The memories of the pictures/video will truly bring the value to the event even if they want to wash off the make-up immediately afterwards.

Live in and capture the moment!

Mike

p.s. we purchased the picture in April and in May they added it to the PhotoPass+ system. We will use PP+ in December!
