#PiratesOfTheCaribbean #BackStorys Since people wanted to know the back story to Pirates of the Caribbean, here you go. You board your boat and sail down a Louisiana bayou past an old man sleeping in a rocking chair on his house porch. This man is the captain at the auctioneer who has guarded the secret entrance to the grotto holding the treasure he and his crew had accumulated over the many years  More...
I remember the old man would talk as the boat slowed at the cabin. Anyone else remember this part?  - Bigbill  17.3 #6442 7:53PM
No, but I remember his dog. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  525.0 #307 7:55PM
I remember his hound too. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  499.1 #333 8:00PM
I remember the dog. - X-WingNikki  794.0 #171 9:10PM
I think about his dog every time we ride it - and then wonder if I was imagining things to think there ever was one! - DisneyOnesie  415.4 #439 4:40AM
I swear I do remember that, and the dog who was outside with him. When was that? - JRoseAllister  61.2 #3916 1:34PM
I'll probably post up the Haunted Mansion one later in the week. Probably have to do it as a 2 parter since there was a change in the storyline sort of with Constance's taking over. Can also go through the whole concept to present if people really want it since I know most the history of the Mansion since it's inception - CM_Shadowgamer  2256.1 #43 12:42AM
Yes, please share the story with the husband who told her not to go into the attic - I was sad when they changed it around and made the bride the villain. - DisneyOnesie  415.4 #439 4:41AM
Just remembered I didn't put some fun facts in to this post and decided to make it a reply instead of a new post. Anyway, there are several actual movie props inside of the attraction. The chair Jack Sparrow sits on in the treasure store at the end of the attraction was used in the dining room scenes of the Haunted Mansion movie (they also have one in Florida and one appears in one of Constance's wedding photos in Haunted Mansion). The chest that held the cursed gold can be seen in the treasure scene with the skeletal pirate sitting on top of the gold pile. It is against the wall on the far side as you enter, closest to where the Davy Jones projection is. The final prop from the movie that I'm aware of is the boat that Pintel and Ragetti use when dressed as women. It will be tied up next to the fortress wall on your right hand side as you turn into the city after the battle scene. Speaking of Pintel and Ragetti, the two laughing pirates closest to where Jack is hiding near the well are who they are modeled after. One has a glass eye, and one has a peg leg (which I guess they didn't go with in the movie). Finally, the captain at the auction was originally the first Mr. Lincoln animatronic. - CM_Shadowgamer  2256.1 #43 2:26PM
Oh wow!  Great info!  I really like the fact about the Lincoln animatronic!  That's something I didn't know! - IDVandalSkipperCM  1895.9 #58 2:28PM
Thank you for this great info! - ekwhite  471.1 #364 4:08PM
