    Hi Beth, Saw you answer a question on Pirates & Pals cruise.If there is rain (and the boat ride is cancelled) is there a refund or are you expected to go to a character 'meet and greet'? -pretty expensive 'meet and greet'. Please let me know your thoug

    Hi Jana,

    I loved the Pirates and Pals Cruise when my family took the cruise. But trust me you do not want to be out on the boat in the rain. There are no sides so the rain just comes right into the boat.

    You are correct that in the event of rain, there is no refund. You would still have snacks and can take pictures with some of the most famous pirates at the Walt Disney World Resorts. Disney will do everything to have the cruise sail but your safety is always their concern.

    However, this policy is no different than if you were to attend Mickey's Backyard Barbeque and the Spirit of Aloha show or any other special event party which is held outside.

    The advantage of the Pirates and Pals Cruise is that you still have the preparty with characters.

    Also, if you are going out of the rainy season, you are less likely to have a summer thunderstorm crop up and spoil your fun.

    Yo ho! Yo ho a pirates life for you!
