Yo Ho, Yo Ho!

Are you ready to pillage and plunder and rifle and loot? Perhaps extorting and pilfering is more your cup of tea? Either way, drink up me hearties... because it's International Talk Like a Pirate Day! 

Nearly every corner of the Disney canon is littered with savvy seafaring scallywags; from Captain Hook to the legendary Jack Sparrow, colorful characters have been hoisting the Jolly Roger for decades! My favorite manifestation of piracy in Disney, however, lies smack-dab in the middle of Adventureland at Walt Disney World. Naturally, I've spent my day in the most pirate-y way I know how: quoting the classic attraction and belting out "A Pirate's Life for Me" (which may or may not have warranted some looks of concern... I kid, I kid.). So go get your best eyepatch and a sturdy peg leg, and let's celebrate this day of nautical naughtiness with a voyage alongside some real buccaneers... but remember: dead men tell no tales!

Who is your favorite Disney pirate? I'm partial to the elegant Captain Hook and that bumbling first mate of his! I hope you've all had a great day of swashbuckling and silliness!
