Disney's Pirate League of the 80s
One of my most favorite pictures I have of my family is the one you see here. It was from that very first trip. I remember getting into the costumes and how much fun it was, especially seeing my dad get into the spirit of it! I don't think before that trip I would have ever thought he would participate. This particular set up was just outside of the Pirates of Caribbean, one of the first attractions that gave me a true appreciation of Disney animatronics. Of course, there was no makeup or lessons in being a pirate, just good old family fun of dressing up and being together.
Today's Pirate League offers a much more interactive experience, including face painting, temporary tattoos and even your own pirate name. If you'd like more information, I highly recommend checking out The Pirates League on the All Ears website.
It is hard to believe this photo was taken 25 years ago during Walt Disney World's 15th Birthday Celebration. We'll be returning this October for our 14th trip and Walt Disney World's 40th Birthday Celebration! It will be our 25th anniversary of our very first trip, which we thought would be our one and only.
