If your family is a pirate loving crew then the Walt Disney World Resort may be just the place for a summer break. With multiple attractions spread across the property you can be living an imaginative pirate's life whether your favorite is Captain Jack or Captain Hook. We've scoured the land and come up with tips to guide you to the treasures.
Dead men tell no tales, so a would be pirate needs rest before setting sail on an adventure. Your buccaneers will feel right at home when they check into a pirate themed room at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort! These rooms feature ship shaped beds and a little hidden treasure. If you really want to take the room decor up a notch, for an additional cost Disney's Enchanted Florist would be happy to deliver a pirate themed in-room celebration. A note from Captain Jack can send you on a quest to follow riddles that lead your family to a treasure he's hidden from Blackbeard!
The whole crew can start their day out at the Magic Kingdom with a visit to the Pirates League in Adventureland, where theme park guests turn into savvy swashbucklers with a pirate make over! Guests who want to join Captain Jack's motley crew will receive a pirate identity and transform into a pirate by a sea-sailing Master before gaining access to a secret treasure room.
The next stop on this swashbuckling adventure is to take in some lessons at Captain Jack's Pirate Tutorial, where you can discover the not-so-gentle art of being a pirate in this high-spirited school of skullduggery and sword fighting! Shows run several times throughout the day so be sure to check your entertainment guide to pick the best viewing for your crew!
Now that you're dressed like a pirate and have gotten some pirate lessons, you're ready to hop on the attraction that started it all, Pirates of the Caribbean.

Pirates of the Caribbean is widely considered to be one of the most spectacular attractions ever created for a theme park and the inspiration to the popular Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
And just launched at the Magic Kingdom, the stakes on the sea roving fun get raised even higher with the debut of a brand new interactive in-park treasure hunt!
