The Pirates League at Magic Kingdom Closing This Summer

Pirate's League at Magic Kingdom to Close This Summer

Tucked into the shop outside of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, the Pirates League is a place where families can get Pirate or Mermaid makeovers and take the pirate oath! But this summer it will be closing.

The Pirate makeovers differ from the Bippity Boppity Boutique makeovers in two key ways: They are more affordably priced and they are for kids AND adults!

My family and I recently did the Pirates League makeovers on Disney Cruise Line. On the ship for pirate night they temporarily convert Bippity Boppity Boutique to the Pirates League!

This be me official pledge as Eliza Starcastle the Pirate!

On pirate night on the Disney Fantasy back in November, we took the official pledge and got our pirate names! Our makeovers were around $40 and included a cool bandanna, a clip on earring, a sash and some booty!

My husband and son rockin’ their pirates league outfits!

Another KTP writer wrote a review of her experience with the Pirates League at Magic Kingdom! We here at Kenny the Pirate are all sad to see it go!

Maybe it will pop up in a new location? I have my fingers crossed!

Yours truly as a pirate

If this is something your family has been eager to do, you can try to get in before the Pirates League closes this summer. You can even schedule your appointment online!

If you’re planning to visit Walt Disney World after the Pirates League closes and want to do an adult makeover, consider booking a Character Couture package at one of the Disney Salons! You can call 407-939-7727 to book. They do makeovers for all ages!

My cousin Andi got this adorable princess crown braid as part of her Character Couture.

My relatives and I very much enjoyed our Character Couture packages in January 2019 for my ten year anniversary party in Animal Kingdom! Honestly, they did whatever style we asked for so if you have your heart set on a pirate or mermaid look, they can do that!

The Pirate’s League website lists the closing date as July 27, 2020. There is no indication that it is a refurbishment, it appears to be a permanent closure with the space to be used for other, as yet unspecified, plans.

  1. I agree with Denise. They need more things for the little boys. And girls love getting the mermaid look. Seems like it’s not promoted as much as BBB is, so naturally they don’t get as much of a draw. I will definitely be sending Disney feedback. They need to know we want to keep it.

  2. This is a terrible decision! My husband and son did this 2 years ago and we all loved the experience! BBB doesnt offer much for little boys and this is an excellent alternative! We made it a whole thing and added the Pirates and Pals cruise that night. It was the perfect magical extra. I hope Disney just relocates this experience rather than closing it all together.
