    In your opinion, which pirate cruise is best, the GF or Y/B Club? Traveling with 9,8,7 and 4 year olds. Love the panel!

    I think either of these cruises would be a fantastic adventure for your children. I would consider a few things when choosing between them:
    1. where would you rather spend your time while the kids are occupied for two hours? Do you dream about strolling the Boardwalk Resort or touring the Grand Floridian?

    2. Would your children prefer meeting lots of other kids? The boat at the Grand Floridian takes about 20 pirates to sea while the Yacht and Beach Club cruise departs with about 12 kids on board.

    Some kids prefer sailing on Bay Lake out of the GF because the "sea" is bigger while other kids love the adventure of going in to Epcot's World Showcase out of the Yacht and Beach Club marina.

    The Pirate Adventure cruise and Albatross Treasure cruise both last two hours. Pirates receive lunch and loot at each location.

    There are at least two Cast Members on each "ship" to monitor the pirates.

    I would highly recommend choosing the pirate cruise that best fits in to your itinerary!
