Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Is Pirate Goofy still available to meet? About three years ago, at Magic Kingdom, my daughter met him while her older brother was taking a much needed nap. My son has his heart set on meeting Pirate Goofy. Please help. Thanks

- Hi, Carrie!
Your family must be so excited with your vacation coming up in just just a few days!
Pirate Goofy is currently sailing the high seas and is expected to make port along the beautiful coast of Southern Florida at Disney's Vero Beach Resort this Spring. His is expected to arrive on Memorial Day and will be present at Shutter's, one of the restaurants there, on Monday evenings through Labor Day for their Pirate Character Dinner! My family attended this Pirate's feast last year and had a swashbuckling good time! This beautiful Resort is just a two-hour drive from the Walt Disney World Resort.
You never know what surprises are waiting just around the corner at Magic Kingdom Park. While I couldn't make any promises on special Characters such as Pirate Goofy making an appearance, you should definitely pick up a Times Guide on your way into the Park each day to see which Characters will be out for meet and greets.
Make sure you check the schedule for Captain Jack Sparrow's Pirate Tutorial so your Pirates-in-training can brush up on all-things-Pirate! Also, you won't want to miss A Pirate's Adventure ~ Treasures of the Seven Seas where you can join Captain Jack and on an interactive adventure with a special treasure map! It's a lot of fun for the whole family!
Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel and I sure hope these suggestions help, Carrie! Let us know if we can help with any other questions you have!
Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
