The Disney Pirate and Princess Party (similar to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party) was originally held for the first time in the beginning months of 2007.

We just happened to have a family friend visit us in Orlando the first night that the Pirate and Princess Party began its summer run. Looking for a way to make this little girl’s visit special, we decided to give the event a try. I was skeptical, and made the entire family go with us.
