I just booked a Pirate's League appointment for my son on our arrival day in February! He's going to be so excited and it'll be a fun surprise!

We did the Pirates League on our last two trips. DD would rather do that than BBB!! You're going to love it!

Berlioz,

Can you tell me what sizes the Bony Pirate costume comes in? We are coming next September and my son is determined that is what he wants. Also can it be ordered prior to arrival, or should we wait till we get there. We will be going to one of the first MNSSHP about mid-September.

That is my son's pic from the other day. He LOVED it. So much that he fought me and wouldn't let me wash his make up off for bed, nor the next morning! He also wore his costume twice and I think he will probably wear it again tomorrow!

Just wanted to provide some encouragement for those who want, but can't get, appointments!

I called for weeks prior to our trip, but the only day we were visiting MK was booked solid. That morning, shortly after park opening (we did ride an attraction first), we walked up and asked if there happened to be any openings, and we got ushered in immediately. I am assuming a lot of people make their appt. for later in the day, so this might not work unless you go first thing, but don't give up hope, it doesn't hurt to try!

My son had an excellent time, the photos are priceless and the experience was fantastic...bless those CMs that do such a fine job!

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
Do you have any pictures to share? My DD was watching the Disney vacation video last night for our upcoming trip and now she really wants to do this.

Does anyone have pictures of the outfits available for purchase for the girls?

Sorry - I just saw this post. The largest size is XL, which is similar to a 10-12. The Boney does run a little large compared to the other costumes.

The pink maiden dress is the only full costume and they sometimes have a Jasmine tutu available, which matches the colors for the mermaid.

Info/photos are available in the first post.

Did anyone have trouble with the shirts shrinking from the captain jack costume? I washed my son's shirt in cold water and hung it to dry and now is too small! It fit fine last week and after one wash too small!

Anyone know of a phone number or email that I could contact Disney about? Stinks to pay $70 and then have the shirt shrink after following the washing instructions.

Thank you, sounds like I might be better of bringing a special outfit for her.

Omg, your DS is adorable.

Is that the jack sparrow costume and hat? Was there anything else you purchased separately? Or is everything else in the pic included?

Thanks!

That is the black eye Jack look and the jack sparrow costume, everything in the picture came with it. Thankfully my mom had an AP and saved us some money. Between the make up, outfit, picture, it was more than I expected lol.

could I have a round about figure-- coz that is what we are expecting one of our kids to be looking at.

do you think it would be better if we found a costume online and take that with us??

Here are before and after of my DD, DS and nephew last month. We did this as a gift for nephew's birthday.





The kids had a great time. DD and DS's pirates were great, totally in character and funny. Nephew's not so much. I don't think my brother or SIL noticed, but for me, we've been there before and his CM was totally not into it, and very frustrated with nephew squinting when she tried to put on his makeup.

Other than her, everyone else we came into contact with was amazing. We went to ride POTC right after they were done, and DS caught his sword behind him getting in and it broke, and they replaced it right away.

Oh yeah. His costume was $70 and the make up was $30. I would look to see if you could find one cheaper somewhere. We did get our monies worth because my son wore his costume every day but one!

My DS (3) did this on 10/30 and loved it. WE had actually called several times to try and get an appt this night for MNSSHP with no luck. Once we entered the park that night and got our wristbands we walked straight to TPL to see if they had any availability. It was 5:10 when I checked and they told me they could get him in at 5:30. Granted he just wanted to be Jake and he already had his costume on. The person checking us in said Jake was a pretty quick one to do so he could squeeze us in. I am so glad we got to do this. We will definitely be back on our next trip. I will post pictures as soon as I get my Photopass CD. (We just got home yesterday so it will be a little while because I have to sort through all of my pictures and get them edited).
