    Coming in Oct. w/ my 3 boys (7, 6, & 2 1/2.). It says Pirate League is 3 & up, but I know if the older 2 do it, my youngest will want to. Do they ever make exceptions for age or would they do a little something special for my youngest?

    Hi Ryan,

    i totally understand your dilemma.  The Pirates League is such a fabulous experience it will be very hard for your toddler to watch the other siblings get transformed into pirates.  Unfortunately the experience has age requirements for a reason, and in my experience the Cast Members will follow this age restriction.  It may be very difficult for younger children to sit still for the length of time required for the transformation.  Also, the Pirates League is very well themed and the characters may frighten younger children.  I would recommend taking your youngest into the gift shop directly beside the Pirates League and purchasing some fun pirate accessories, or even a pirate costume to ensure everyone is included.  This should make the experience enjoyable for all of your children, and when your youngest is old enough they will be able to enjoy the Pirate League experience as well.  

    Another option for your youngest would be to head on over to the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street U.S.A. Here your youngest can have a fabulous hair do with Mickey Confetti and plenty of sparkle!  

    I hope you have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort Ryan.  Please let me know if you have any other questions, I would be happy to help!
