Remembering Disney's Pirate & Princess Parties: 2007-2008

Hi everyone!

Today’s photo memory features a look back at all three versions of Disney’s Pirate & Princess Parties! This was a great event that was last presented back in 2008. I attended the original incarnation in the winter of 2007, followed by the summer 2007 version as well as the final incarnation in winter 2008 (renamed Mickey’s Pirate & Princess Party)! Pirate Mickey (below left) advertising the party outside the Magic Kingdom entrance. The Train Station is decorated for the party as we enter via a smoke filled magic carpet (below right)!

Disney’s Enchanted Adventures Parade, shown only on party nights, featured all your favorite Pirates & Princesses and began with knights on horseback (below left). Pirate Mickey Mouse greets us from the famous mirror float (below right).

Princess Jasmine’s Royal Guard Recruitment (Above). You’d master a magical invisible sword and become a member of the Royal Guard with help from Prince Aladdin. Remember to beware of the evil Jafar! The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction was always popular on these nights!

At the end of the night, you exited through the red carpets to count your booty of chocolate (replaced by coins in 2008) and beads.
