    Planning a 5YO Pirate Birthday for my son and wanted suggestions on what to add or remove, and what order & times to book activities. Want to do Pirates League, rides, Crystal Palace lunch, naps/pool, Chef Mickey dinner (with cake), & P&P Firew

    Ahoy There John,

    Shiver me timbers, what an amazing celebration you have planned for your little laddie! Your whole family will enjoy all of the Pirate Adventures awaiting you at the Walt Disney World Resort! Here are my suggestions for a "swashbucklin'" good time:

    ~ Breakfast at The Crystal Palace, not lunch. Start your day with a delicious "All-You-Care-to-Enjoy" breakfast buffet and some hugs from Winnie the Pooh and Pals. Get an early morning Advanced Dining Reservation and enjoy a walk down Main Street, U.S.A. before Magic Kingdom Park gets crowded. You'll have the opportunity to take some great photos of your family without the usual crowd of people in the background. After Breakfast I would enjoy the Park Attractions; be sure to get FastPass+ reservations for Pirates of the Caribbean and Peter Pan's Flight. Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Hook "arrr" ready to meet you and your buccaneer! I would then head to your experience at The Pirates League

    ~ Enjoy a day at your Resort Hotel with plenty of pool time and a big nap before heading over to your birthday celebration dinner at Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort. I would try to time your reservation so that your dinner ends just a bit before you need to arrive for your Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage. Your Voyage will begin about an hour and a half before Wishes nighttime spectacular starts. You'll get to meet Mr. Smee and that scoundrel Captain Hook before you set sail so, "weigh anchor" and have a "Yo-ho-whole" lot of fun! 

    Magical Wishes Matey!
