After you've taken the Pirate's Oath, they take you into a little secret room behind a crate in the corner and let you root around in a secret bookshelf. When one of the books opens the secret chamber, you get to choose from the treasures inside. Then they take your picture.
The Johnsons invaded Walt Disney World this September and had a blast. We stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort and slept in beds that were shaped like pirate ships and the mini-fridge was in a barrel. The actual parks were fun too.
A perfect day for the Magic Kingdom.
Ready to go on the first day.
Penny and Hank and some old castle.
The castle at night.
Day 2 was Epcot.
Hank took this shot.
In fake Germany we found real beer.
On day 3 we were joined by Henry's friend Katie whose family happened to be vacationing at Disney at the same time. We arranged a breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and his friends.
Henry brought his friend Eeyore to meet big Eeyore.
Penny got to make some friends too.
After Pirates of the Caribbean, Hank and Katie were ready to transform into pirates. Here are their "ARR!" faces.
After their time in the Pirate's League. Katie was Captain Jack Sparrow and Hank was a skeleton pirate.
They signed their names in the register.
Then we tried to become King Arthur but were not deemed worthy.
On our last day, we met up with the Little Einsteins and Handy Manny.
We were shrunk down to miniature size and rode an ant.
Then we rode a Speeder Bike to get away from some Stormtroopers.
They have an incredible thing called the Jedi Training Academy where kids can learn the ways of The Force and battle Darth Vader.
Focus, young Jedi.
Darth Vader appears. Jedi Henry is giving in to his anger.
(Detail of the focus and anger)
Penny grabbed this photo of a Mickey Mouse Cloud that really sums up the magic of the week.
