    Brandy- Good to know! :) When my son asked me to do it with him, I couldn't tell him no! Haha! I was hoping I wasn't going to look like a weirdo when I checked in and they realized I was an adult! :) I think it will be fun, and I think I'm going to get my son and myself Pirate Mickey and Pirate Minnie shirts to wear that day! Plus, we're doing it the same day as a MNSSHP, so I figure there will be plenty of adults in costume that day, so I'll fit right in! :)

    PLEASE post pics when you get back! I's love to see them!

    Do you know if you can get the Pirate's League photo added to your photopass??? Just wondering if I need to buy the photo separately or if I can get it put on my photopass cd??

    Certainly! However, the lighting is designed for only one person, so often one of the faces will be dark.

    You must purchase the first portrait ($15) before they will add them to your card.

    NOTE: Pirate Goofy started appearing yesterday - I added an image to the first post!

    My dh, ds, and myself all have signed up for this the night of the first MNSSHP. Do we each need to buy one for a total of 3 or can we just buy one and get the rest on photo pass?

    My nephew went on the last park day of our vacation. I made his outfit which was orginally going to have a plain tee shirt but changed my mind and only brought the vest and shorts. The tie dye shirt added to the interaction so all is good.

    J had a good time and said his pirate master talked funny. You can tell from the pictures how engaging the pirate master was; he was great. Berlioz70, I would like to send a letter to report a wonderful job could you pm me the info on who and where to direct that to? Thanks.

    I booked my 2 kids for the wrong day! I am about to go and cancel it. I have called 2 times and there are no openings. has anyone walked up and gotten in? If the chances are low I think I will just plan something else. The kids DS8 and DD were really looking forward to doing this though!

    Here is the Disney contact information listed on All Ears. Make sure to include the Pirate Master's name as CMs receive special recognition if a Guest writes a positive letter about them!! I'm glad your nephew had fun!!

    Walt Disney World Guest Communications
    PO Box 10040
    Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830-0040

    wdw.guest.communications@disneyworld.com

    Are you trying to book for a specific time of day? The morning couple of hours are always busy, and they will typically not take walk-ins, but the afternoons are usually easier. TPL has never been completely booked for a day so hopefully the people you are talking to are trying to book the right thing. Good Luck!!

    DD is looking forward to going to do this in June. She has done BBB twice and wanted to try this out. She's bringing an Elizabeth Swann costume (buccaneer). Can't wait!

    OUr daughters did the Pirates League and LOVED IT during our last trip in Late Nov/Early Dec... when we were there, we saw several families getting done, it was really cool! I love the theming of the area too - it's very cool.


    We may all do it this year, not just our kids! pirate: I saw a few moms my age that seemed to be even more into the experience than their own kids were. ;)

    DS did TPL last trip. The cast members were fantastic. While my son was being made into a pirate, another pirate cast member asked my daughter if she would like to dance. DD said no, so he turned to me. Wanting to show my DD that it was all in fun, I stood up and Mr. Pirate and I danced around the room several times. The funniest part. DH didn't even notice. He was so concentrating on DS so much, completely missed that part. Didn't even get a picture of us.:sad1:
    DD and DS are both going back this year for "makeovers".

    Afraid not, those are CM exclusive (but people do ask for them a lot).

    My husband and four children (3 teen boys and a 10-year old daughter) will be doing this in June. I was thinking of purchasing the pre-paid Photo Pass. When their Pirate League photos are taken, is it possible to have a group picture as well as individual photos taken? Also, if I have to purchase a photo, will I have to purchase just one photo before they add all others to the photo pass, or would I have to purchase one phote for each ( 5 x $15 = $75) before they'd add the rest to the photo pass? Any suggestions for teens doing this? I think they will come with the right attitude and have fun.
