It was wonderful to be able to go on a ride with my whole family and watching lilgirlcrazy taking in all the sights and sounds. It was magical. To this day it is one of her favorite rides!! - Crazyaboutdisney  500.0 #395 10:42AM

Enter me please! My favorite memory of not just POTC, but my favorite CM memory as well, was when I was 5 years old and I was absolutely terrified of the POTC attraction at WDW. I went on it once on a previous visit and I didn't like it. I guess it was because of the drop at the beginning. Anyways, my mom asked a CM to talk to me and convince me it wasn't as bad as I thought. She explained to me how tall the drop actually was, and that there are cameras in every room, so if something goes wrong they would know. When she was done talking to me, I decided to go on and she gave me a gold pirates coin! I ended up enjoying it and now it's one of my favorite attractions. - MissAriel  40.8 #4897 10:57AM
...not sure if this counts but since you only said 'pirates' :) - my friends and I had a giant capture the flag game- Ninja vs. Pirates. My team captain dressed up as Jack Sparrow. We ended up losing cause the ninja side kinda cheated -.- They had a team member who brought pirate clothes with them, put them on and stole our flag. It was a brilliant move but made me so mad lol - MayBie  1885.6 #76 11:05AM

My favorite memory has to be the fact that my husband and I saw the first movie on our very first date.

Once we got through the gates I saw him and I bolted. With mom and pop right behind I gave Goofy a huge hug! Goofy is still my fav!!!! - Disneylover88  5.7 #15361 12:54PM
My favorite POTC memory is seeing the joy on my 6 year old nieces face when she went on it. It was her first trip to DL and we rode POTC 9 times in a row and she enjoyed every minute..I loved seeing how fun something can be through the eyes of a little one. Walts magic lives on and great RAK - Evangeline  244.9 #1342 12:55PM
Mine is kind of mean but we took my friends 1 year old daughter on potc and on the first waterfall we raised her hands up. She got scared but the look on her face was just sooo cute!!! - nikkiribas  323.4 #725 12:56PM
The best memory i have of POTC was when i was about 5 yrs old it was my first time on the ride & i was so scared!!When i saw the pirate skull talking before the big drop i would lift my dads shirt and hide under it! Poor dad had many stretched out shirts! Lol! However i promise him now that his shirts are safe!! - littlemermaid09  4.3 #20505 12:58PM
My favorite memory was my boyfriend (now husband) picked me up with his friend to go to watch potc n we went in n when it started we didn't even watch the movie ;) lol so I had to go c it again - princessnai  0.3 #85281 1:01PM
My favorite memory is when I first rode this with my mom (it's her favorite ride) and I was terrified of the drops but by the time the ride had ended, I just wanted more! - jacqueMeetsWorld  55.4 #4351 1:03PM
not long after POTC first reopened with the new Capt Jack in the ride my kids and I waited in line to ride, only it had broken down and we had a choice to wait or leave, well we waited. . we were one of the first few boats on when it reopened.. . not a sound was happening. It was quite eerie going on the ride wiithout any sound, and this being the first time we had not a clue what was supposed to be said during the new enhancements. The sound returned right as we were going up, about midway up in fact it came back on. Now there were a few boats ahead of us, not one of them complained, but our boat had already decided we were going to have our own mutinay of sorts. . we all refused to leave the boat! they had to promise us we would get another boat, but that we had toleave that particular boat, so two boats later we were back on, however I'm pretty sure the castmembers were not pleased with us as we started something, all the boats that we could hear before riding again did the same thing! Soo that ride meant so much more with the sound effects, kind of cool getting to ride back to back though! - arliepooh68  0.1 #104148 1:05PM
My best memory is going to opening night of second movie I'm costume. What made it even better was seeing my friend on the big screen! He was only an extra, but he had some face time!! - DisneylandFan2  460.0 #439 1:09PM
My favorite memory was riding POTC with my friend for her first time this last summer. Of course she loved it! - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #178 1:11PM
My favourite memory is when my sister & I were at the first Pirates Premire. We got SO claustrophobic inside Disneyland we made our way to the Grand to go check it out cause we wanted to explore. We found some chairs in the lobby & sat down for about 10 mins. All of a sudden the room got quiet, then after about 30 seconds volume picked up again. Lots of laughing and giggling, people just having a good old fun time. I turn around low and behold there's Orlando Bloom his gf Kate, Johnny & Family, Kiera & I believe her mom. They were all laughing & joking with eachother having a good old time. Kiera was ALL giggles. Johnny would walk around to people within the group striking up quick conversation. Orlando was holding Kates hand the entire time. Disney was amazing, the staff saw us in the room never asked us to leave or move (we were about 10 feet from the cast) they just let everyone sit there and starre. They were there for about 15 mins talking, goofing around, then they were separated and escorted by security and plaids. - Jessss  337.0 #669 1:11PM
 how embarrassing! I'm sorry didn't mean for it to be THAT long...  - Jessss  337.0 #669 1:12PM

My first ever memory of pirates was way before the movies and it was on POTC, I thought the first drop was the biggest longest never ending drop EVER!!! totally freaked out and I never wanted to get on it again!!!! But that was about 20 years ago, I just laugh at that memory now and love POTC. - Ms.Mouseketeer  1008.8 #171 4:31PM
My favorite memory was when I was about 6 and my aunt took me to DL with some of her friends and their daughter. On the way there the other little girl basically threw up on me which was gross but not her fault however once we got in they were being really rude So right then and there my aunt decided to leave them and we headed straight to POTC so icould ride it for the first time and since then it's been one of my favorites! - jazzydarling  39.3 #4957 4:31PM
I think my favorite memory was being there for the reopening of pirates. It was the day after the POTC 2 premiere and that was the longest time I've ever had to wait for Pirates. It was fun to see Jack Sparrow though. But now I wish that I had been on that rode more than once before the change because I don't remember what it was like. - OrcDorkAlly  0.6 #73512 4:33PM
My favorite Pirates memory is the smell as you walk in the front entrance. It triggers that magical feeling. It always has. - JustGoofyDad  2184.0 #63 4:46PM
It was my little brothers first time on POTC, he was about 5. We started to pass Blue Bayou and he asks me if we could eat there, I told him that we would go later and he said "Ok, I want chicken tenders." The guy in the seat ahead of us turned around and asked me "did he just say he wanted a gin and tonic!? " We stared at each other for a few seconds and started busting up laughing. That was the best experience on POTC! Now, everytime we get on Me and bro look at each other and giggle. - WishingUponAStar  133.2 #2895 4:53PM
My favorite memory was watch Walt talk about the new ride that was going to take you down a waterfall into the pirates lair. The when my grandson saw the first skull and called him a "yaw yaw" because if that his mouth moves . - arianwenmcb  214.8 #1736 4:55PM
My favorite memory is just last month. My little girl was there for the first time, she insisted on riding pirates at least twice a day. On our very last ride of POTC, going up the long steep ending, she raised her arms up (like on a roller coaster).. I said to her "Sweetie, what are you doing? There is no drop coming up, the ride is almost over".. she said to me "This is my last ride mommy, I'm going to pretend we are about to drop down a big one" ........ SMILE came over my heart, this is what Walt was made of, dreams and pretend =) - jeana121180  12.2 #8920 5:00PM

How my daughter(2) sings yo ho and how she pads her legs as she calls to every dog through out the ride. - SnowWhizyte  0.4 #79166 2:40PM
So awesome!! I have a nice collection of maps, and this would fit right in! My memory: When Pirates first came out, I refused to watch it. I assumed it could freak me out, so I just had no desire to see it. Well, when the 2 movie came out, I was visiting my grandma and she went to take us to the movies, and she decided on that one, despite my unhappiness. Since then, I've always loved them!! Thank you so much! Awesome RAK! :) - Amanda  120.7 #3111 2:40PM
When we were younger, my sister, cousin and I would get a stick and try yo get some of the pirate's bounty. It never worked. - rainbowlite  13.5 #8387 2:42PM
Oh me please. My fave ride is pirates. All I remember is the smell of the water and sitting next to my dad on the boats. Miss those times. Wish I could bottle that smell and take it home with me. - Disney4life  61.2 #4203 3:35PM
Favorite memory of pirates- grad night c/o 2000. Waiting in line for forever!!! Haha but spending a great night with my best friend who was going away to college. We are still the best of friends! :-) - dopeyluv  111.9 #3292 3:55PM
When the people in the seats in front of us kept flashing pictures of themselves with their camera. Since they had the camera turned at them me and my wife in the seats behind them we were blinded by the flashes. They took what felt like a million pictures. The ride staff apologized to us and let us ride alone in our own boat and gave us a fast pass voucher for any ride of our choice. - anthony91765  107.7 #3370 4:28PM
When I was 7, went to DL with my mom & her best friend. They decided that we were riding POC, even though I was deathly afraid of water. lol So they put me on kicking & screaming. Im sure no one on the boat enjoyed that ride. I know I didnt... - Minniemousemamma  12.2 #8941 4:32PM

My favorite memory was when my mom decided to take flash photography in the ride to see what they would say and over the loud speaker they said " women with blond hair wearing red please no flash photography" we were laughing so hard. - SarahInWonderland  42.9 #4796 4:47PM
My favorite pirates memory was when we finally talked my 6 year old daughter into riding the ride only to go over the drops and the power goes out. She was like daddy we stopped why I said there will be a guy come to walk us off the ride. She thought I said the pirate was gonna come get us and make us walk the plank lol like in the movies I said no hunny we will be ok..... she said ok daddy I trust you but if they do you go first lol - cowboygoofy  215.5 #1724 5:43PM

My favorite memory was with my mom. It was around 10pm and very few people were left in the park that day. We went on POTC like 5 or 6 times in a row so that we could get a few good pictures of "Jack Sparrow". We were switching seats with each other and everything trying to get the best shots! Fun times! - DizneyGurlll  187.0 #2081 6:45PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of June 29, 2015

Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times.  - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  424.6 #475 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7066 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  130.5 #2944 5:08AM
