DS was tall enough at 2...but that doesn't mean he enjoyed it. See the look on his face?! Priceless. He didn't fuss, but I could tell it wasn't for him. The girls, however, look terrified but wanted to ride again immediately!

Back from Disney where my DS did the Pirates League for his 6th bday. He had an amazing time, choosing the "cursed pirate" look (it's the one with the most make up). Word to the wise: bring make up remover with you. The black makeup is really hard to get off, especially around the eyes. They are very thorough so they paint the inner eyelids, which I can still see a faint line even days later. My DS looked like a strung out rock star

My son is also 6. How far in advance did you make your reservation? How long does the session take? Are there 'best' times of the day to do this?

I made it a few weeks in advance but we went at a slow season. They said they could fit my DD in that day if she wanted to do it too but she didn't. The session took about 45 minutes or so but his makeup was pretty involved. We went in the morning but if you think your little pirate would like to march in their parade at 4:10, I'd do it closer to that time. My DS was done with the makeup before the parade

This is a great thread, lots of very useful information!! I will be at WDW in November and have been thinking of booking my daughter (she will be just turned 4 when we go) into the Pirates League for the 'Mermaid' makeover then getting her mermaid Ariel costume on her and taking her up to Ariel's Grotto to meet Ariel. I was a little unsure but after reading through this thread I am 110% sure she will love it!! I even think I'll book DH and myself in at the same time!!

Thank you! My son isn't into face painting. He'd hate the makeup. He'd never do the parade. I'll try to find a video about it and see if he wants to do it.

I apologize if this has been posted, but couldn't find the answer in the search.

I made PL ressies for 9:05 AM on a 9 am park opening day. Will they let us in the MK a bit early with our confirmation number, or not since technically it's not till park opens? Anyone who has done this would be great help! I would love to get some empty(ish) MS pics. Thanks!

Magic Kindom lets people in at 8:50 already, even if your let through the train station early, they still will not let you into Adventureland until 9.

We had the same scenario last June. We were let in early and were able to take pictures on empty Main St. etc. When we got to Adventureland, there were already people there waiting. The CMs were great and let everyone take pictures holding the big pirate flag, my kids loved it! Then when they took down the rope we all paraded back with the CMs and they let one little boy lead us carrying the flag! So fun!

We are doing it again this June, same time and hope we have as much fun!!

Is your son into Jake and the Neverland Pirates at all? The Jake look has very little face paint (just eyebrows and sideburns). It is very cute.

ETA: Forgot that my son is "Jake" in my signature, so take a look below.

Make-up durability questions

Anyone asked the make-up artist to skip the eye make-up on a boy? I am concerned about my son looking like a drag queen a week later when we have a wedding to attend! Should the make-up be long gone by then, if we should go ahead with it? Those of you who have done full pirate make-up with your son...would you allow it if you had a wedding a week later? Has anyone had great success with getting all the eye make-up off right away?

Another question. I made our appointment for late in the day so that the make-up would not be washed away during resort swim time. Reading some reports I am thinking that maybe the make-up will not wash away in the pool. Thoughts?

Thank you!

Good question!

I wonder of the makeup can be skipped altogether.
