    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!:yay:

    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. :goodvibes

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

    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.

    I am sure it can be skipped. But that's not what I am looking to do. I know he will want some make-up...just questioning whether to have it around his eyes.

    It is dependent on the makeup choice. Ds did the makeup that made his face a skull and the black around his one eye was difficult to get off. He looked like he had eyeliner but just on one eye. We were not too concerned since we were just there for the fun anyways but it was noticible in the pictures take for at least the next day.

    Makeup removal - if you're prepared you can get it all off. I've had every look on my face multiple times and have ALWAYS gotten it all off. The problem is, most Guests do not pack makeup cleansers and using soap will not be able to get it all. I personally used Clinique, a lot of guys use standard shaving creme; getting it off over a week is easily doable.

    Skipping the eyes - some of the looks are approved to skip the eyes (Hook is often skipped for young pirates). Some looks are required to have the eyes (multi eye and cursed are required). They are designed/approved by Imagineering so there's no fudging on them. The RARE exception are children who are unable to make it through the process so it becomes a matter of just finishing and getting them out.

    Do not go in the pool at all - while black will likely hold up, everything else will wash off (especially white).

    Yep - it's called the no face option, check the first post for more details.

    I bought a cheap box of makeup remover wipes from Target (the Up and Up brand), and it took DS's solid black makeup right off without issue. I found them in the section with the travel soaps and stuff. Easy peasy. :goodvibes

    Just booked my girl's 2nd Pirate League adventure for May 1st!!!! The first time was AMAZING, but it rained the entire day (badly) and we ended up leaving the park after an hour with make-up smeared everywhere! I'm hoping for better weather this time around so the girls can enjoy it! Keeping my fingers crossed!!!!!

    My son is Jake in the Ariel pic at the end of my posts, but it is kind of small, so here are his and DD's official pics from their makeover sessions. Note that they were out of the flower clip for DD, so they gave her Mickey head bobby pins instead. There is also a pic of them riding on the monorail and one from the parade captured by Photopass...

    I booked a PL appointment for each of my four kids for our 2nd MK day. I decided this over doing both the PL and BBB separately so that the kids can all do this together at the same time; plus both of my daughters are awestruck over the mermaid makeover and it won their vote over BBB! My oldest DS is getting the first mate package and he will wear a simple pirate costume shirt/vest combo he wore for Halloween last year. Our youngest DS is getting the Jake package (he adores this show) and is wearing his Jake and the Neverland Pirates t-shirt. Both of my daughters are getting the mermaid makeovers and I bought them each tank tops and skirts that I think coordinate nicely with the color of the make up used for the mermaid makeover. I am so excited about this and I know it will be a special and memorable experience for them!

    My boys are so excited. I finally remembered to make their PL appointment this year. We will be in the MK for the first day of our trip on May 31st. They both have an appointment to get the Jake package after lunch. They are looking forward to this more than anything else this year.

    Can't wait!
