    What is the distance from Disney Beach Club to Disney Springs & Magic Kingdom? Is the Pirate League adventure a different event from Captain Hook?

    Hi Jackie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am happy to see you back here with another question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort plans!  Trying to get everything lined up for a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is always like a puzzle to me – trying to fit it ALL in while not missing A THING!!

    The Pirate’s League at Magic Kingdom Park is essentially a pirate makeover!  Located in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom Park (near the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction), young Guests are transformed into swashbuckling pirates or sparkly mermaids.  Makeovers take approximately 30 minutes and there are different packages you can choose from – from just having makeup applied to full costume purchases.  All buccaneers do receive a new pirate gear such as an eyepatch, sword and bandana to go along with their new pirate name!  Different than Captain Hook’s Pirate Crew, this is a transformation for young Guests whereas Captain Hook’s Pirate Crew is more of a Youth Club or Parents Night Out opportunity!  While I have yet to utilize the Captain Hook’s Pirate Crew experience for my boys, I have heard fantastic reviews from a fellow panelist, Jennifer L. who recently took her own young buccaneer!  My boys have often been transformed into pirates – both at the theme park and onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – and they have loved it!  And, I certainly love seeing their faces when they see their new look for the first time!

    Disney’s Beach Club Resort is a Walt Disney World Resort near Epcot and can be reached from Magic Kingdom Park by the complimentary Walt Disney World Resort transportation with a bus being your easiest way to get there.  You would also need to take one of the Walt Disney World Resort buses to get to Disney Springs from Disney’s Beach Club Resort.

    Jackie, I am hopeful that this information helps guide you in planning for your unforgettable vacation at Walt Disney World Resort!  Please visit again with any other questions you have!
