    Which one would you choose for 2 adults, I've been thinking of doing something different, but I wonder if the Pirate and Pals Cruise is more for children than big kids :lol:

    Has anyone done one or both and what did you think of it.

    I know we haven't done the dessert party, but may possibly have done the pirates one with a group gathering a few years back. I don't remember what that one was called.

    Disney is for everyone! I think it's perfectly fine for 2 adults. It's my favorite way to watch Wishes

    Definitely not just for kids, I wouldn't have felt awkward on it if we hadn't had the kids with us - the pirate host we have had have been very funny with subtle grown up humour added in!

    From what I remember Lisa writing...

    You leave from the Contemporary of from GF
    You meet Captain Hook and Smee before boarding the boat and get a pirate entertainer? for the cruise
    At some point you "park" in front of MK and watch Wishes
    You go back to the resort and I believe when you exit the boat you meet Peter Pan

    I just wrote about my recent experience on Pirates and Pals cruise. I haven't done the Wishes Dessert Party, but sitting in tomorrowland certainly can't be as much fun for a similar price.

    :lol:

    As Mari said, you meet at one of the conference type rooms in the Contemporary where you are given bandanas and told your boat number (there are usually two). You then have some time at a reception type thingy to get snacks which are pre-packaged and laid out buffet style to take with you on the cruise. There re also bottles of water, cans of drink and tea and coffee machines. You have some time there and there is a meet and greet with Smee and Hook.

    Then you are allocated a pirate host for your boat. They lead their group down to the marina, long with Smee and hook, to the waiting boats. Smee and hook wave you off from the marina and you set sail.

    There are games, and quizzes on the boat, our pirates have always been very funny. Any birthdays, anniversaries are celebrated.

    You are taken round towards the Wilderness Lodge where you get to see the water pageant.

    Then the boat goes round in front of MK where it stops just in time for Wishes, the music is piped in and it is really magical watching it from there :yes:
