Disney's Pirate Adventure Cruises

"Aspiring buccaneers between the ages of 4 and 12 board a pirate-themed boat and scour the waterways around Walt Disney World Resort in search of pirate treasure during a swashbuckling high-seas adventure.

On this guided expedition, each participant enjoys a light snack and beverage, learns how to talk like a pirate, visits legendary ports-of-call, and—if he or she is lucky—returns with a bag of pirate booty! Disney's Pirate Adventure is a 2-hour sailing voyage that takes place each day at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m."

Know Before You Go
  • This activity is for children ages 4-12 only, and that does mean No Parents... not even for pictures
  • Children are accompanied by 2 Cast Members who are CPR certified
  • The "pirate-themed" boat is a pontoon boat
  • The lunch/snack usually consists of a peanut butter & jelly Uncrustables, Goldfish crackers, a treat, and a juice box
  • While some sites say children receive red & white striped Mickey ears, in most cases they receive a bandana

These Pirate Adventure cruises depart from four locations:

The current price with tax is $39.41 per child.

When booking make sure you consider your child's personality and whether you think he/she would be able to participate in the 2 hour activity without you, especially if they won't be having a sibling/friend going with them.

You must call 48 hours prior to cancel without penalty, if necessary.

To book your Pirate Adventure call (407) WDW-PLAY (939-7529) or speak with your travel agent.

  1. We haven't tried it yet, but only because our children were so young the last two trips. We aren't going to do it this year, but most likely the one after when all three kids can participate. I didn't have the heart to sign up two and the third be too young to join. It looks like such a great experience. Plus, we always try to spend on day at the resort just relaxing and think this would be perfect. I can't wait to hear what your little one thinks of it!

  2. I've actually been out on the bay and heard all the kiddies laughing and making pirate noises. It sounds like such a fun thing to do.
