Location and Hours
The Pirates League is located in Adventureland next to Pirates of the Caribbean (what a coincidence). Hours are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on 7 days a week. Longer hours may happen during special events. The transformation process takes between 30 and 60 minutes.
There are 2 packages. The First Mate package and the Emperess package. Packages cost $29.95 plus tax and include a 5 X 7 portrait, the oath and the following -
|The First Mate Package||The Emperess Package|
Hats, costumes and additional photographs are sold separately. Magic Kingdom admission is not included in the price.
You can make reservations (highly recommended) by calling (407) WDW-CREW up to 180 days prior to arrival. (The last reservation is for 3:30 pm.)
What to expect
Here's what Disney says about the experience -
"Captain Jack and his trusted mates are scouring the seven seas in search of treasure—and new recruits!"
So what will really happen?
- When you arrive at the lair you will be issued an official pirate name which will be written into the leather-bound captains log.
- Next, you go to the Muster Station where you will be transformed into a buccaneer worth of joining Captain Jack Sparrow and his mighty band.
- Then you go to the Secret room where your official picture is taken and you plunder some hidden treasure.
Then it's off to the park to pillage and plunder.
Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
Extra hours are added during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Parties. On most party days hours are extended until around 7:00 pm.
Dad's Bottom Line
This is a nice addition to Adventureland. The price has actually gone down over the years. (It started at $49.95 plus.) What kids doesn't want to be a pirate?
