Disney's Pirate & Princess Party Makes Encore Appearance in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in August

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Pirates and princesses seeking royal and rowdy fun can enjoy a summertime encore of Disney's Pirate & Princess Party as it returns to Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort for eight select nights Aug. 11-Sept. 3, 2007. Advance tickets go on sale May 1, 2007.

"This new party was so popular with our guests that we brought it back for a brief encore," said Tara Anderson, Disney show director. "Now more guests can live out the adventures of raucous buccaneers and pretty princesses, and step right into favorite stories and fairytales."

With an adventure map and treasure pouch in hand, families can embark on a hunt for colorful beads, chocolate doubloons and fun throughout the Magic Kingdom theme park. Adventurers can explore Magic Kingdom on a quest for pirate coves and princess courts brimming with specially themed entertainment, participate in character meet-and-greets and experience some of the most popular Magic Kingdom attractions open throughout the evening. All guests are invited to dress up as a wily pirate or favorite Disney princess.

Adding to the magic of the event will be two new nighttime entertainment spectaculars:

  • "Disney's Enchanted Adventures Parade" features a new 39-foot-long pirate ship overflowing with swashbuckling adventurers, plus a treasure-filled float with Captain Jack Sparrow himself. The colorful cavalcade moves down Main Street, U.S.A. with a flag corps twirling the Jolly Roger, royal knights on horseback, court dancers and a regal processional of Disney princesses and princes.
  • "Magic, Music and Mayhem," a fireworks display orchestrated to an original musical score, will fill the sky above Magic Kingdom.

Party highlights:

  • A pirate tutorial during which Captain Jack Sparrow offers young buccaneers sword-fighting tips.
  • Royal guard recruitment training.
  • Character-themed dance parties and meet-and-greet opportunities.
  • Live entertainment and themed play areas.
