Becoming A Member of The Pirates League
Let’s be honest, not every girl dreams of being a princess and not every boy wants to be a knight. Some children (and their parents) dream of being pirates. Honestly, what could be better than strapping on a sword, donning a bandana and setting out to swash buckles with a band of fearsome buccaneers setting sail for the Spanish Main? Lucky for Guests of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, The Pirates League can make those dreams come true.
So, what does it take to become a scurvy, grog swilling pirate? Here’s what you need to know.
1. What Is The Pirates League?
Like the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, the Pirates League is a complete makeover that transforms Guests into a pirate, a pirate empress, or a mermaid. Your makeover includes pirate or mermaid accessories, which you are given before the makeup process begins. In addition to the makeup, you’ll receive an official pirate name and get sworn into The Pirates League, all inside a pirate’s lair.
Special Pirate Masters will teach you pirate slang, tell you nautical tales, and teach you pirate fundamentals as you receive the makeover. Photopass opportunities are available once your transformation is complete.
2. Where Is It?
The Pirates League is located in Adventureland in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. You can find it between the entrance to Pirates of the Caribbean and the Plaza del Sol Bazaar.
3. Who Can Participate?
Guests must be at least three years old but, unlike Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, there’s no maximum age. That means that parents can become pirates along with their youngsters. Bear in mind that children under 18 must have a parent or guardian with them at the time of the experience.
4. What Does It Cost?
There are multiple packages available with a variety of different goodies available in each, including swords, a pirate coin necklace, a bandana and more. Packages for boys cost $44.95 (The First Mate Package) and $99.95 (The Captain Hook Deluxe Package) , and at $44.95 (for the Empress and Mermaid Packages) and $84.95 (for the Mermaid Deluxe Package) for girls.
Smaller packages are available such as the Skull & Scurry Package which costs $18.95, the Scurry Glam Package for $24.95, and (for a limited time) the Uma Package for $19.95. Rather than a full makeup transformation, these packages involve a couple goodies and a smaller amount of makeup.
5. How Do You Sign Up?
Guests can make reservations up to 180 days before their planned experience. They aren’t required, but are recommended.
The Pirates League is sure to create memories that will last a lifetime. Before it’s over you’ll want to raise a glass and sing, “Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me!”
