    Where can we find Capt Jack Sparrow and Flynn (Tangled) for pictures ?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Mary!!!

    Captain Jack Sparrow is super busy sailing the seas looking for treasure these days so he doesn't typically have a meet and greet location.  If you are attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) at the Magic Kingdom (MK), Captain Jack is posing for pictures near the Pirates of the Caribbean during this event.

    On typical days in the MK, Captain Jack doesn't have a meet & greet location but does appear at Captain Jack Sparrow's Pirate Tutorial. It takes place across from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Adventureland at the MK. A few times a day, he comes out with his first mate Mack. They do a little comic routine & then recruit aspiring young pirates to join his crew. The kids take the Pirate Oath & Captain Jack teaches them how to be rescued from a desert island by using a swordplay trick to escape the enemy.

    Captain Jack typically chooses 4 - 5 kids a session to join his crew. Kids are randomly chosen. Every time I've seen this it seems the kids are very near the rope they lay out to create a barrier for the stage are more often chosen. I'd try arriving early & being near the front. Wearing a pirate bandanna or some sort of pirate gear may help.  After the tutorial, Captain Jack makes a quick get-a-way & doesn't usually stop for pictures.

    The Pirate Tutorial takes place several times a day. The times will be listed on your Times Guide that you can pick up as you the park. Keep in mind that schedules are always subject to change without notice for many reasons.

    Flynn Rider used to appear with Rapunzel in the Fairytale Garden. Now he only makes appearances in the park on rare occasions.  Your best bet would be at either MNSSHP or possibly at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP).

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
