Shiver me timbers! Grab your pirate attire, fly your Jolly Rogers and gather up your scallywags for some swashbuckling good times. Here are five ways to celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day, here in Orlando, on September 19th:

1. Take the family out to Pirates Dinner Adventure on I-Drive! This interactive pirate-themed dinner theater show is sure to have the whole family talking like a pirate by the end of the night.

2. Putt your way through Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf, which offers a unique experience of meandering streams and marauding pirates. There are two locations in Orlando.

3. Build a pirate fort right in your own backyard (or living room!), and then hunker down for a pirate-themed movie night featuring these classics:

  • Pirates of the Caribbean – All five fantasy films take you on a journey with Captain Jack Sparrow and his band of bumbling pirate friends!
  • The Goonies – “Hey, you guys!” This family classic follows a band of misfit kids on their search for One-Eyed Willy’s pirate treasure. They encounter some typical teenage trials and some super greedy bad guys along the way. 
  • Muppets Treasure Island – Looking for something for the littlest barnacles? The Muppets take to the high seas in search of buried treasure in this classic that your littles will surely love. 
  • Movie night isn’t complete without snacks. Work together to prepare these treats fit for any buccaneer!
    – Pirate’s Booty baked rice and corn puffs
    – Goldfish Crackers
    – Chocolate Gold Coins
    – Swedish Fish Candies
    – Hot Dog Octopus
    – Cap’n Crunch Cereal
    – Pretzel Sticks (aka “peg legs”)
    – Fruit Kabob “Swords”

4. Take a road trip to the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum to see the world’s largest collection of authentic pirate artifacts and treasures. This place will entertain everyone in your brood! It will be well worth the drive.
