How to Be a Pirate

Have your kids ever asked you how to be a pirate? Today is National Talk Like a Pirate Day and if you ever wanted to indulge that question, today is your day! I find myself wishing for my sons to be little again ~ toddlers instead of towering over me ~ so we could spend every minute in pirate gear, playing pirate games, eating pirate food, and reading pirate stories. Had Jake and the Neverland Pirates been around it would have provided tons of inspiration for any pirate themed day.  Because our kids are older, I love the grown up opportunities we have to enjoy the world of pirates thanks to Walt Disney World Resorts. Sharing my post highlighting the 2012 Disney Social Media Moms Swashbuckler’s Soiree!

I am coming to you from the edge of The Yacht Club Beach as we kick off the night at Disney Social Media Moms Swashbuckler’s Soiree. Its wonderful entertainment based on a pirate theme with all sorts of fun for the kids with games and great food. Its an awesome way for us to start off the weekend with our families close by, relaxed, on the beach, and barefoot no less. In fact we’ve all been saying we don’t think we’ve ever been this relaxed at a social media event. Hats off to Disney but of course I expect nothing less. We’ll have a lot more to share over the next few days and in the mean time, make sure to check out what everyone shares right here from the 2012 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration where yet again, Disney Social Media is setting the bar!

As you can see, we had a fabulous night setting the stage for a magical few days ahead, families in full focus while we experienced the magic of Walt Disney World Resorts with a beach front party only Disney can throw.  If you are thinking about hosting a pirate party anytime soon, here are a few tips I think made the Swashbuckler Soiree extra special and very authentic…

Nobody hosts a special event like Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts and the Swashbuckler Soiree is another fantastic example of what President Meg Crofton says is the business of creating experiences and helping families make memories that will last a lifetime. I remain in awe of the pixie dust and a lifelong fan. Tell me…

What makes a themed special event perfect for you?
