    Our sons have always been big fans of Pirates of the Caribbean and Captain Jack Sparrow. Is there a meet and greet location where we can get his autograph?

    Hi Lisa!

    I am a HUGE Captain Jack fan! He's super busy sailing the seas looking for treasure so he doesn't have a meet and greet location. However, there are times he does make appearances for special events and will pose for pictures and sign autographs. I saw him at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom (MK) last year. I also had my picture taken with Captain Jack and Captain Barbossa on the course of Disney's Princess Half Marathon in February.

    Although he does not stop to pose for pictures and autographs, there are a couple of other places you can see Jack Sparrow:

    Captain Jack Sparrow's Pirate Tutorial in the MK. It takes place across from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. A few times a day, Captain Jack comes out with his 1st mate Mack. They do a little comic routine & then recruit aspiring young pirates to join his crew. The kids take the Pirate Oath & Captain Jack teaches them how to be rescued from a desert island by using a swordplay trick to escape the enemy. After the tutorial, Captain Jack makes a quick get-a-way & doesn't stop for pictures.

    The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow at Disney's Hollywood Studios. This is an interactive experience where Captain Jack invites Guests young & old to join his crew. But 1st you must pass tests including a large sea storm, the rage of the kraken & a fierce pirate battle. The Disney Parks Blog did an excellent piece about working with Johnny Depp on the making of The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
