The Court of Disney Captains

Once upon a time there lived seven legendary leaders with amazing adventures and terrifying tales that captured the imagination of generations. Individually, each was an icon who embodied traits often associated with command. But together, they were ... the Court of Disney Captains!


Captain No. 1: Mickey Mouse


"Oh, boy!"


Mickey Mouse was first seen by general audiences wearing a captain's cap and piloting a steamer named Steamboat Willie. In the intervening years the little mouse has commanded a number of aquatic vessels, from tugboats to ships to submarines and more, often accompanied by his friends Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck (a fellow sailor), and Goofy. Today, Captain Mickey journeys with his fans on the decks of the Disney Cruise Line fleet.


Captain Mickey represents the hard-working, fun-loving, and imaginative captain.


"Ha ha!"



Captain No. 2: Steve Rogers


"I don't like bullies."


In the early days of World War II an experimental serum transformed a frail but patriotic American named Steve Rogers into a living legend: Captain America! Clad in red, white, and blue, and armed only with an almost-indestructible shield, the world's first super-soldier helped rally support for the Allies and aided the United States military in countless missions against the Axis Powers. He was long thought lost to a watery grave, but his body was discovered frozen and revived in modern times. Once recovered Cap joined the team of superheroes known as "The Avengers" and the law-enforcement and intelligence agency S.H.I.E.L.D. where he serves as soldier, leader, and inspirational icon.


Captain America represents the humble, courageous, and super-heroic captain.


"Good work, soldier!"



Captain No. 3: James Bartholomew Hook


"Thank you, me dear. You've been most helpful."


The power-hungry pirate and revengeful ranking rogue of the Jolly Roger, Captain Hook is on a merciless mission to punish the prepubescent Peter Pan and nefariously lord over Never Land. He is thwarted time after time by the simple-minded Mr. Smee and the clever and tenacious Tick-Tock the Crocodile.


Captain Hook represents the menacing, villainous, and forever-frustrated captain.


"I'll get you for this, Pan, if it's the last thing I do!"



Captain No. 4: Han Solo


"I take orders from just one person: me."


During a period of civil war Han Solo was a galactic smuggler with a fast ship, a good blaster, and a heart of gold. While running from his debts with his Millennium Falcon co-pilot Chewbacca, he became involved with Rebel Alliance against the evil Galactic Empire. Together with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia he helped destroy two Death Stars, defeat the sinister plans of Darth Vader and the Emperor, and restore freedom to the galaxy. Han Solo is the loner who became a leader.


Captain Solo represents the cocky, rebellious, and swashbuckling captain.


"You like me because I'm a scoundrel."



Captain No. 5: Buzz Lightyear


"I am Buzz Lightyear. I come in peace."


Buzz Lightyear is a space ranger stationed in the Gamma Quadrant of sector 4. As a member of the elite Universe Protection Unit of the Space Ranger Corps, he protects the galaxy from the threat of invasions from the Evil Emperor Zurg, sworn enemy of the Galactic Alliance.


Captain Lightyear represents the action-packed, commanding, and dedicated captain.


"To infinity and beyond!"



Captain No. 6: Amelia


"They're a ludicrous parcel of driveling galoots."


The finest captain in this or any other galaxy, Captain Amelia commanded the R.L.S. Legacy, the ship which carried Dr. Doppler and Jim Hawkins through a tale of thrills and treachery to Treasure Planet. At the end of the voyage, the cat-like commander, together with her heroic passengers, defeated the selfish John Silver and the savage Mr. Scroop. Amelia is a fearless feline female who is intelligent, independent, and intolerant of incompetence on her ship.


Captain Amelia represents the strict, fearless, and beautiful captain.


"Zip your howling screamer!"



Captain No. 7: Jack Sparrow


"It's a pirate's life for me. Savvy?"


The calculating and crooked Jack Sparrow was born on a pirate ship and grew up to make a name for himself as one of the craftiest captains in the Caribbean. Often considered a lucky gambler or looney genius, his (possibly) drunken deceptions have gotten him into trouble as many times as they've gotten him out of it. Although he might tell you his favorite thing in the world is rum, the Sparrow's true loves are the sea, his ship the Black Pearl, and, of course, himself.


Captain Sparrow represents the quick-thinking, eccentric, and mischievous captain.


"I'm sorry. Could you repeat the question please?"
