    Have booked pirates and pals for my son's 4th birthday on feb 12 2011. Are there any circumstances we should be aware of that would cause a cancellation eg certain weather conditions etc? Thanks for your great advice - love the panel!

    Ahoy there Sara!

    I absolutely LOVE the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage and think it will be a GREAT way to celebrate your son's birthday! Patch the Pirate will be sure to recognize the special occasion.

    As with any special experience, this event may be cancelled by Disney for a number of reasons but only if it becomes necessary. This voyage includes a land & sea portion. If the entire event is cancelled, they will issue a full refund to your credit card - you will not need to be present or check in to receive your refund.

    There may be times when it looks like they're good to go for the sea portion & something could come up at the last minute. In that case, they'll still have all the desserts, you'll still get to meet Captain Hook & Mr. Smee & the Pirates will still perform in the reception location. If this happens, speak with one of the Cast Members regarding your options.

    If they know in advance that they are canceling the event & have enough time, they will make an effort to contact you ahead of time to let you know. If your cell # (or Disney Resort #) is noted on your reservation, they will try that # first - otherwise they will call the # on your reservation. I always use my cell # on all of my reservations just in case.

    If it looks "iffy", you can call 407-824-3099 to listen to a recorded message. Please keep in mind that this # is not answered - it is strictly a recorded outgoing message & will only state if the voyage is cancelled altogether if the decision to cancel has been made in time to post the message.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the weather will cooperate because I know your family will LOVE Pirates & Pals. Wishing your son many magical pirate filled birthday memories :-) Allison
