Mickey's Pirate and Princess Party is a hard-ticketed (separate admission) event held throughout the months of January through June at the Magic Kingdom theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida outside Orlando, and starting in 2011 at Disneyland Paris Resort. This event combines two of The Walt Disney Company's franchises, the Disney Princess line and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Walt Disney World version[edit]

History[edit]

Started in January 2007, the event was created after cast members at the park saw many children dressed either as pirates or princesses at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, another ticketed event held in September and October throughout 2004's events. Because of that, Walt Disney World decided to create a new event, which took two years of planning.

Each of the lands within the Magic Kingdom is centered to the theme related to royalty and piracy.

Liberty Square - Pirates of the Caribbean
Fantasyland - Ariel
