Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Tutorial is an interactive character stage show experience that is not to be missed. Located in Magic Kingdom’s Adventure Land on the Promenade Stage, directly across from Pirates Of The Caribbean, this 25 minute show will teach children some pirating skills in the style of the famous Captain Jack. While this show is open to all ages, it is most popular with the 12 and under crowd.
Typically Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Tutorial runs 6 times throughout the day, but be sure to check the Times Guide for the exact show schedule. The first and last shows of the day are usually the least popular, and therefore, the best chance to be in front to see all the action! This is an outside production, so cancellation due to inclimate weather is a possibility. Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Tutorial is standing room only and I recommend arriving 5-10 minutes early to ensure a good spot up front.
All interested children are allowed to go up on stage with Captain Jack and his shipmate Mack, but only a few are selected to demonstrate the pirate jargon and sword fighting skills they have just learned. To be selected, it helps to have a fun and charasmatic personality and being decked out in a little pirate gear and make-up dosen’t hurt either. Many children stop by after a visit to The Pirate League so they can be completely dressed for the part!
At the show’s completion the children are all given a beautiful certificate that states:
Be it Know and Beware!
The bearer of this article has earned the rank of
and is pledged to the crew and, therefore,
under the shelter and protection of the one and only
Captain Jack Sparrow.
Those failing to accord the bearer safe passage and their due respect will answer
personally to me and may expect swift retribution for insult or injury inflicted.
Captain Jack Sparrow
This certificate is beautiful and suitable for framing once home. Since Captain Jack does not do meet-and-greets or autographs, Captain Jack’s Pirate Tutorial is a great place to do both. His signature on the certificate is the only way to get the great captain’s autograph.
I highly recommend Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Tutorial. It is a one-of-a-kind class taught by a one-of-a-kind pirate. Get the cameras ready and enjoy the antics of Captain Jack, Mack, and all the little volunteers! It’s a great time! Arrrgggg!!!
