Did you know that September 19th is the official “Talk Like a Pirate Day” holiday? It’s true! What started out as a joke among friends has evolved into a real holiday and it has capturing magic potential written all over it! Disney has brought many memorable pirates to life for us over the years that can help you celebrate this quirky little holiday. Here’s a list of all the Disney-related pirates I could think of. Please let me know if you have any others to add to the list!
- Captain Jack Sparrow and the entire cast of Pirates of the Caribbean movies and ride
- Captain James Hook (Peter Pan) and (Once Upon a Time)
- The Black Stache (Peter and the Starcatchers)
- Jake and the Neverland Pirates (Disney Junior show)
- Blackbeard’s Ghost (1968 movie)

There are also some Disney attractions that have pirates in them:
- Pirates of the Caribbean (my all-time favorite ride!)
- Pirates Lair on Tom Sawyer’s Island
- Peter Pan’s Flight
There is plenty of pirate-related merchandise in the parks and in Disney stores. If you’re like me, you’ve come home with more than one piece of pirate loot over the years!
