    Sailing on the Fantasy in Sept. My son will be 11 and wants to search for buried treasure on the islands. I would like to give him a scavenger hunt and pirate prize in our room. Any suggestions for loot? I want it to be special but not expensive. Thank you

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nancy!

    What an extraordinarily fun idea for your upcoming high seas adventure.  I love everything about it!  There are so many great treasures for your son to find on the Disney Fantasy!

    After uncovering all the gems to be found during your Port Adventures on the islands, your pirate could come back to a surprise reservation at the Pirate's League in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!  On your sailing's scheduled Pirate Night, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique offers pirate makeovers that are a fun way to get in the spirit for the Pirates In The Caribbean deck party.  You could also create a "do it yourself" pirate makeover as a prize for all his treasure hunting by purchasing a pirate's hook, eye patch and more in the onboard shops or from home.

    Another idea would be to reserve some time in the virtual sports simulator on Goofy's Sports Deck for your son.  You could leave a certificate with the reservation for him in a treasure box or scroll when he returns from his hunt.  

    You could also purchase some pins for him to participate in pin trading while onboard with the crew and fellow guests.  It keeps his treasure hunt going as he can meet new people and collect new pins!

    Be sure to check out the Midship Detective Agency while onboard.  If your son likes to solve puzzles and find new things, this onboard activity is one he will truly enjoy!

    I hope these ideas help you discover magical memories during your getaway.  Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you need any additional help before you set sail!

    Bon voyage!  Angie
