    Taken from the WDW site.....

    Transform yerself from a land lubber into a true buccaneer! Captain Jack Sparrow is looking for pirates of all ages to join the crew of the Black Pearl. Starting June 29, 2009, visit their "secret" recruiting center in the Magic Kingdom Park. Jack's crew has pillaged the East India Trading Company's office in Adventureland, loading it up with plundered booty to create The Pirates League, where you can get yerself a whole new identity complete with name, look and pirate portrait!

    It's a Pirate's Life for You!

    Ahoy, mateys! Begin your piratical transformation when you receive your Official Pirate Name as recorded from the leather-bound captain's log. Next, stop by the Muster Station and leave your old self behind as the Pirate Masters perform a marauder's makeover. Hear the ways of the scurvy sea dogs as they apply yer buccaneer beard, scars, earrings and eye patches. Or even be ye a boney pirate and wear your skeleton on yer skin!

    Once you have fully transformed, enter the Secret Room where your Pirate Portrait is taken for posterity and the Pirate Masters reveal their hidden treasure.

    But the fun is just beginning. With your new pirate identity and map case folder, hoist yer colors and embark on a challenge in Adventureland that will shiver yer timbers!

    While at WDW last month, we did see a lot of 'pirates' wandering the parks. It was good to see - a nice change from princesses!

    I can tell you from experience that this is a WONDERFUL thing (in our experience, for little boys) to do. :yes: :9:

    Our Seth was given the full package as a birthday gift. He was treated with such kindness and personal attention! He chose the Jack Sparrow full costume (and wears it now each time he visits Disney!) and the "black eye" face. The young man who made up Seth's face was absolutely wonderful with him. :yes:

    Seth was shown to a secret room, and had his photo taken every step of the way. There was sword fighting training, and pirate naming, and signing the book, and all sorts of things included. It's a true experience so DON'T rush it! :yes: Plan on spending as long as it takes.

    Jack Sparrow will come out near the exit area at given times during the day. Seth was able to see him briefly, as it began to rain just as Jack came onstage. Jack commented on Seth's tailor (which pleased the boy to no end) and then had to dash.

    If you have an opinionated pirate (as we do LOL) the sword included in the full package is a "Peter Pan Sword" and not a pirate sword, so be prepared to purchase the long, rapier like pirate sword! LOL.

    Now, however, whenever he goes to the parks, he needs his Peter Pan sword... go figure.

    It really is a super wonderful thing for boys to do. Girls do it too, and that's certainly fine, but it's a great counterpoint to those princesses! :D

    Yep! :lol: That's the way the boy thinks!!! :D Plus, the sword, being a Peter Pan Sword is all caught up in his thinking process with the dear friends who gave him this wonderful gift. :yes:

    It really was the most fun I've seen the boy have in the parks ever.

    I'm going to book Steven the first mates package. Can't see him being happy in full pirate costume in the middle of August in the Magic Kingdom. But he'll be up for face paint and some accessorising. :thumbsup:
