The Pirates League
Ahoy me hearties! We recently returned from our second Disney cruise aboard the Dream, and wanted to share with you about a new experience we enjoyed. As if Pirates Night isn’t enough fun, we booked reservations for Tigger and Roo at The Pirates League on board the ship. This experience is available by reservation only for guests ages 3 and up on Pirates Party Night in the Bibbiddi Bobbidi Boutique.
Pirates League Packages
Packages for the Pirates League are very reasonably priced and include not only a pirate makeover, but also Pirate souvenirs! Here is a breakdown of your choices:
**Sidenote**I’m not sure exactly what to call the sweet cast members who do the makeovers for the Pirates League. I wouldn’t think they are Fairy Godmothers like at Bibbiddi Bobbiddi Boutique, but who knows. Maybe they are called wenches. **
The makeup process is fairly quick for the amount of product that is put on your children’s face during the makeover. New makeup and brushes are used on each child so you don’t have to worry about germs.
Keeping It Real
Just a friendly word of advice, the makeup used during the transformation is legit makeup. To put a positive spin on it, I would say that I was very surprised with how well the makeup stays on. This won’t be something that just flakes off. To give you a “keeping it real” perspective, we had to do some serious scrubbing to get it off, hence the scrub marks on my kids cheeks! Therefore, I would recommend bringing some very good makeup remover, baby wipes or coconut oil to help with the removal. Otherwise, you will end up making a trip to the spa before you disembark on Castaway Cay to try some of their specialty makeup remover so your 5-year-old doesn’t look like Jack Sparrow all day. Don’t ask me how I know this.
Pirate Oath and Loot
Your child will receive a sword, pirate sash, bandana, pirate necklace and earring after their makeover is complete. Once they have their pirate loot, it’s time to swear an oath of allegiance to the pirate code. My oldest son, Tigger, thought this part was hilarious. My youngest took it far more seriously. He still thinks he’s a pirate.
My boys didn’t think it could get much better than meeting Mickey on Pirate Night dressed as a Pirate!
Set Sail With The Pirates League
If you are sailing with Disney and want to visit The Pirates League don’t wait too long to book! You will want to schedule your visit as soon as possible due to the popularity of this experience. You can secure reservations during your online check-in, and the makeover takes roughly 45 minutes.
The Pirates League is a truly fun and memorable experience before the Pirate Party on board. My family would recommend it! Yo-ho Yo-ho, it is definitely a pirates life for us!
