Let’s be Pirates 2017
On May 27, 2017, the pirates took over the Magic Kingdom!  No pillaging and plundering or burning buildings were reported, but there did seem to be a lot of pirates looking for loot, especially on the island identified as Tom Sawyer’s Island.  It was reported that some of the pirates were seen carrying handfuls of gold coins throughout the day.
This pirate has found the fair wenches of the village.
Pirates are friends forever………….
Until one tries to double cross the other.  Then it’s every man for himself.  Watch your back!
Captain Jack Sparrow wanted to join the team, but they just laughed.
Pirates viewed through the porthole of a ship trying to get safely into port.
This pirate is ruthless.  She is dreaming of overtaking a ship and making it her own.
Look out!  They’re starting to storm the incoming ship!  They are a frightening bunch to be sure.
Local women are not safe from the pirates, but it looks like they are not afraid.  We think they are attracted to the adventurous spirit that the pirates display.  Some of them may even be dreaming of joining the pirate ranks and doing some looting of their own.
It looks like these two have already joined the pirate band.  They look dangerous to me!
This handsome pirate seems to have charms that work on all the women.  He never seems to be without a female (or two or more) on his arm.  Is this where the expression, “a girl in every port” came from?
This female pirate is said to be one of the fiercest pirates on the sea!  She looks nice here, but don’t let that smile fool you.
The pirates and local people believe that mermaids are real.  Look!  They actually found one, and she says her name is Ariel.
Who says pirates can’t be female - OR pretty?  Just look at these two raiders of the high seas!
This looks like the calm before the storm.  These pirates look gentle and harmless here, but they can turn into savage fighters at any time.  Lock up your valuables and stay inside!
We told you this pirate has charms.  He can even charm an elusive mermaid.
Do you think that pirates pray for good looting? 
Do you think this pirate is jealous of the mermaid?  Or is she trying to convince they young mermaid to join her group?
It looks like they’ve taken over yet another city.  They never seem to stop in their attempts to conquer more and more territory.
This group of pirates was overheard plotting the takeover of a “ship” on the nearby river.  They were trying, not very successfully, to blend in with the regular passengers, but their evil intent seemed evident.
We heard that there was loot to be had, if you found enough coins to buy it.  We saw pirates exchanging their coins for these treasures.  Actually, these were the prizes for the scavenger hunt for coins on Tom Sawyer’s Island in the afternoon.
The final tallys were made and the prizes were passed out on the landing by Aunt Polly’s place on the island.  Every team had fun, and most collected far more coins than had been expected.  Some of the teams broke up into smaller groups, but each person who was there at the end got a small treasure chest loaded with some candy.  Even though the day was hot, we all had a great time.
We made paper treasure chests for all the participants and loaded them up with candy.  They received them at the end of the day, after we had collected gold coins in a scavenger hunt on the island.
Captain Hook has captured Tinkerbell and is holding her in a lantern. We hope that Peter Pan will know where to look and can rescue her soon!
Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Ghost Spanish Royal Navy soldiers led by Jack Sparrow's old nemesis, Captain Armando Salazar, escape from the Devil's Triangle, with the goal of killing every pirate at sea, including him. To survive, Jack seeks out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact whose owner can control the seas and break curses.
Different bands of pirates were seen congregating in various parts of the kingdom, apparently plotting their next raids.  We think the pirate at the right must have been making small treasure chests to hold the loot before he buried it.
