Once you find all of Princess Orange Blossom’s Gems, take the booklet back to the pool hut for a pirate worthy treasure!
Princess & Pirate Academy Show
This interactive show is a ticketed activity for Pirate and Princess lovers and takes place in the Palm Bay Room located in the Emerald Bay area inside the atrium. The show is about 25 minutes long with a fun photo opportunity included in the end.
Hampton’s favorite part was taking the “Pirate Oath” towards the end of the show and yes, I totally purchased a $5 pirate sword on our way out.
Captain Quarter’s Bar
This pop-up pirate themed bar is located across from the Emerald Bay Marketplace in the Emerald Bay area of the main atrium.
This decked out pirate themed bar offers mocktails and cocktails to guests looking for a refreshing beverage that no pirate could pass up. The bar resembles a Captain’s retreat complete with pirate skeletons, ice cube “jewels” and even a pirate ship’s helm with photo opportunity that Hampton refused to pass up!
Cypress Springs Water Park & Crystal River Rapids
Explore seven water slides, two pools, a water wonderland interactive playground and more at this resort waterpark. This is a fantastic way to beat the Florida heat and also cool down after a day at nearby theme parks.
Hampton and I spent an entire afternoon at the Cypress Springs Water Park and had a blast! I recommend calling ahead to reserve pool side seating because it includes the convenient option for pool side restaurant service. This is extremely helpful when traveling with little ones!
