The Pirates League or Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?

PL or BBB

We love all the “extra” experiences Disney offers…even if it is at a price!  For my daughter’s 8th birthday, we gave her the option of participating in The Pirates League or Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  I wasn’t the least bit surprised when she chose to be a Pirate Empress!  My son (who was 10 at the time) was all about Pirates of the Caribbean, and she wanted to be just like her brother in as many ways as is possible for a “girl.”

It was so much fun!  We had a 9:00 am appointment, and you know what that means!  We got early entry into the park!!!  If you have never done that, you MUST. It’s an amazing magical feeling to walk down Main Street USA with NO one around you.  We arrived at the entrance to Adventureland and were stopped by a rope…but the cast members there were “pirates” who kept us very entertained with some very bad jokes!

Once we were allowed to go to The Pirates League, we checked in and the kids had a great time choosing their pirate names.  Once in the chairs, the cast members REALLY played the part well, gearing the kids up to be the best pirates ever.  My kids (and my husband and I, too!) laughed and laughed.  After their transformation was complete, they were made to say the pirate oath and were taken into a secret treasure room for their awesome souvenirs!  There is alot more to this experience, but I would DEFINITELY do it again and again.  It’s so amazing!

Our next trip to WDW was for my youngest daughter’s 6th birthday, so we decided to give Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique a try.  We arrived at the Magic Kingdom location for our appointment and the girls were treated like royalty. We went with the middle package that includes hair, makeup, and nails, but not dresses. (There is also a package for boys, but my 11 year old was not even remotely interested.)

The girls had a great time here, too!  But, surprisingly, I think we ALL enjoyed The Pirates League better!

Someday, I’d like to get us in for a $5 glitter ponytail or mohawk at Harmony Barber Shop.  Until then, we have some great memories!!!  Have you done either of the three?  What is your favorite?

As always, if you’d like more information on this attraction or any other, contact us!  We’d love to help. 🙂
