The Pirates League Sets Sail in Magic Kingdom

Filed in: Magic Kingdom

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Calling all scoundrels, rogues and ne’er-do-wells – Captain Jack and his crew want you.

You can drop anchor in Adventureland with your favorite Disney pirates at Magic Kingdom for The Pirates League, recruiting and training Walt Disney World guests ages 3 and up in the scurrilous ways of buccaneers.

Each guest checking in at the plunder-filled pirate’s lair gets an official pirate name.  Then it’s off to Muster Station for applications of beards and bandanas, swords and scars, earrings and eye patches – all done with the savvy skill of a veteran pirate who shares his own tales of sea-sailing adventures.

After the new buccaneers recite a sacred pirate oath, they are officially part of Captain Jack’s motley crew, leaving their old identities behind.  Past a hidden portal and into the treasure room, the shipmates are turned loose on an unsuspecting Adventureland – and no doubt feeling right at home at the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.  The newly ordained pirates can also participate in a daily “Pirates Parade” through Adventureland (weather permitting).

Guests can choose from two daily pirate packages:

  • First Mate Package: Includes bandana; choice of facial effects; scars; tattoos; fake teeth; earring and eye patch; sword and sheath; pirate coin necklace; and personalized pirate oath — $29.95 plus tax.
  • Empress Package: Includes bandana; shimmering makeup; face gem; tattoos; nail polish; earring and eye patch; sword and sheath; pirate coin necklace; and personalized pirate oath — $29.95 plus tax.
  • Pictures and costumes are also available for an additional charge.

Newly donned swashbucklers who need a little more training learn the secrets for survival by the captain himself during Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Tutorial.

Boys, girls and grownups ready for the pirate life can start the process by calling 407/WDW-CREW.  For more information about The Pirates League, visit disneyworld.com/crew.
