Pirate’s Point Excursion

Have you heard of Pirate’s Point Excursion at Disney World? I’m amazed at the things that get lost to history, so to speak, including this item in a 1980 publication that referred to Pirate’s Point.

The WDW News fromSummer 1980 had an ad for an excursion to Pirate’s Point for young buccaneers. After doing a deeper search of my ephemera and the internet, I was only able to come up with one other reference: a brochure I found on pinterest.

Check out the article from the Summer 1980 WDW News:

Young Buccaneers Set Sail For Adventure

Set sail for adventure! Beginning June 8, join a swashbuckling crew for an evening voyage to Pirate’s Point. You’ll sail the Seven Seas Lagoon, hunt for buried treasure, enjoy refreshments, and even have a marshmallow roast and sing-along with Pirate hosts and hostesses.

Buccaneers ages 5 through 12 are invited to head out at 8 p.m. from the Polynesian Village Marina rental dock. The excursion lasts 1 1/2hours and the cost is $2.00. Reservations are necessary and can be made by calling 824-2000, or stopping by the Guest Services desks in the Walt Disney World resort hotels.

The only other mention I found was part of a pamphlet or info card that was shared on Pinterest, which gives similar information as the article. Too bad the rest of the pamphlet wasn’t available.
