by Mike and Jamie Sylvester

Ahoy, me Hearties! Do you have a Pirate in the family? Planning on a trip to Disney? Avast! Here are 11 things we suggest you check out to enjoy a swashbuckling time on your pirate themed vacation at Disney!


1 – “X” Marks the Spot!

Because every good buccaneer needs to great treasure hunt, we suggest you tell your Pirate about your trip to Disney with a treasure map. Much like a scavenger hunt, set up little Pirate doubloons along the hunt throughout your home, your town, or whatever works for you. Have them follow the pirate map to the final and greatest piece of treasure… your vacation to the place where Pirates go to have a blimey good time – Disney World!

2 – Prepare for Voyage

Before you begin your great voyage to Disney, prepare your Pirate with some excellent movie choices. Depending on age, we suggest watching the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Peter Pan, and/or some episodes of Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Each of these Disney movies is relived at different attractions within the park. Prepare your Pirate for some of the sights he or she may encounter at Disney.
