This was an amazing experience. The build up including selecting a pirate name was great and the transformation into pirates was magical. Photopass photographer outside to capture the moment! We went on pirates of the Caribbean afterwards which cemented the experience.

My daughter got transformed into a mermaid at the Pirates League. Very cool experience. The cast members play their roles well. They were engaging and funny. In my opinion they were more relaxed and less rushed than the make over at the bippidy boutique- however...More

Bring your own costume. The one available there is nothing more than a t shirt and cheap tutu.

The costumes are a separate fee, and not so great IMO. You're better off making your own beforehand.
