Live the Dream! Become a Pirate at The Pirate’s League!

August 9, 2009

Last week, Scamp and I were given the opportunity to head out to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World to become pirates and join Jack Sparrow’s crew!

Seeing as we had planned to go out to Disney anyway, we jumped at the chance. So while my husband and Spiff tore off to ride some rides, we sauntered into The Pirates League to take up the pirate way of life!

Pirate Preparations

We started by trying to figure out what our pirate names are. By using a scientific method, some dice, a locked box and a wheel (and a book to look things up in!), we quickly ascertained what our pirate names are.

Then we got down to business. Makeup was applied, stories swapped, and hearty cheers of “Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me!” were heard as we watched the transformations take place:

We took the pirate oath, and then we were told we could go into a super secret room. A room only pirates go into. Holding Hector’s hand, we went in..

…and it was in here where our transformations were complete.



We had the time of our life and once we solved the secret code and went on an adventure we spent the rest of the day roaming the parks as swashbuckling pirates. You haven’t LIVED until you have spent the day at Disney looking like a pirate!

I met up with some friends after we left The Pirates League. One of my friends asked me was it worth it to do this. I said at least once in your life you absolutely, totally should. It was fun for me, it was fun for my son, and it was like Halloween in August. Actually, they have helped me decide what I’m dressing up as for Halloween this year!

Special thanks to Charles Stovall, Erin Catalano, and the entire Disney Media team. You guys are wonderful, and thank you for this opportunity!
