    We will be at Disney World in 11 days! It is our DS 1st trip (5 y.o.). He loves the Disney pirates. I am trying to decide whether to do the Pirates and Pals fireworks cruise or to stay inside MK and watch the parade. What do you suggest? Thanks!

    Hi Jasmine,

    Thanks for writing!  My two boys are huge pirate fans, and absolutely LOVED the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage.  If you have an opportunity to attend, I would absolutely go for it.  In fact, we are visiting Walt Disney World in March, and have already reserved our seats on a repeat voyage.  Your adventure begins at the Contemporary Resort, where you'll enjoy a private meet and greet with Captain Hook and Smee, while you enjoy some yummy snacks.  When you board your vessel, your pirate guide, Patch,  will have you laughing and enjoying Disney trivia, songs and games.  Once you stop, you'll have an unbelievable view of Wishes.  After your voyage, you'll head back to the pier at the Contemporary, where, you'll be met with a wonderful surprise.  On select nights, you'll also be able to see the Electric Water Pageant from the boat.

    Another great idea for your pirate lover is a visit to Pirates League at Magic Kingdom, where he can be transformed into a pirate.  I brought my boys over for a makeover a while back, and they still refer to their experience at Pirate League as one of their all-time Disney favorites.

    Happy planning!
