#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. However, since he has fallen asleep, you are able to sail past him and into the grotto.  Your boat then plunges down two drops, representing you travelling into his dreams and memories of the past. The rest of the attraction is a backwards time line going from present to past starting with the scenes of his crew and other pirates as skeletal remains in various scenes. This represents the reasons he has quit the pirates life, knowing he would end up this way as well if he did not. You pass a portrait of a redheaded lady wearing only orange and maroon socks, this lady of course is the famous redhead being auctioned off later in the story who has accepted the pirate's life and has become a captain herself. You may have noticed those orange and maroon socks before, that is because the Cast Members are wearing them and in fact are supposed to be a part of her pirate crew. The next scene after you exit the tunnel is the attack on Isla Tesoro with the Wicked Wench (original name of the Black Pearl before it was burned, sunk and raised from the sea) bombarding the Spanish fort. We then see that the pirates have made land fall and are questioning Magistrate Carlos as to the whereabouts of Jack Sparrow (originally the hidden treasure of the island). This concludes with the pillaging and burning of the town along with the women being sold at auction. Finally you travel through a jail scene where those who were unfortunate to get caught during the attack were placed trying to escape while their drunken shipmates fire at each other. You then travel back up the waterfall, representing the end of the dream and return to present day as you arrive back at dock.

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  2467.8 #49 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  621.2 #304 4:41AM
Would love to hear the story! - MsTikiMermadam  364.4 #587 4:15PM
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  2467.8 #49 2:26PM
Oh wow!  Great info!  I really like the fact about the Lincoln animatronic!  That's something I didn't know! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2374.6 #53 2:28PM
I remember the old man would talk as the boat slowed at the cabin. Anyone else remember this part?  - Bigbill  17.6 #7306 7:53PM
No, but I remember his dog. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  676.1 #271 7:55PM
I remember his hound too. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1160.7 #141 8:00PM
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  621.2 #304 4:40AM
I swear I do remember that, and the dog who was outside with him. When was that? - GotMouse_aka_JRoseAllister  91.0 #3609 1:34PM
I remember!  I actually thought I was crazy for remembering that!  And I always thought that the dog was the one from Carousel of Progress! - msdizmaui  645.0 #289 12:13AM
Thank you so much for posting that! POTC isy family's favorite ride! I can't wait to share this with my sons - leopardditz2000  700.3 #252 1:45PM
Wow!! Thanks for all the info - FoolishMortal138  356.8 #610 1:46PM
That is awesome how there are stories that go with the rides, the one I had heard was of how the haunted mansion and pirates of the Caribbean tied together? Idk if it is true it made sense but so does this one and maybe more legit but thank you for sharing :) - WeCallitDisneyMagic  142.3 #2768 1:51PM
The Mansion/Pirates cross over was a concept that never happened that would have also tied in Tom Sawyer Island. The idea was to make the captain at Pirate's Jean Lafitte and also make him the owner of the Haunted Mansion. He would have had a secret lair under the mansion that would be used to smuggle his treasure and goods out of the bayou and on to Tom Sawyer's where the secret pirate base would be. There are actually clues to this concept inside the mansion and in New Orleans Square itself if you look hard enough. The best part is that the concept never truly went away and Tom Sawyer's is now Pirate's Lair. - CM_Shadowgamer  2467.8 #49 1:56PM
For those curious, here's a website with a TON of info on this concept:  http://tinyurl.com/4y65bl6 - CM_Shadowgamer  2467.8 #49 1:58PM
That's really cool and now that u mention it, yea u could see how that concept never went away, seeing as to how there's the archway by the haunted mansion with the numbers that was supposed to be the secret lair right? I really like hearing/reading this kind of stuff it gives you much more of a connection to the whole attraction, thanks again  - WeCallitDisneyMagic  142.3 #2768 3:03PM
That is fantastic to know about, thank you sooooo much!! I can't wait to ride this again and have an entirely different perspective about this ride!! Cheers! - apesandmonkeys  6521.7 #13 1:51PM
Coooooool!!! Thank you!!!! - missariel33  2111.9 #65 1:52PM

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 July 20, 2015

Since Disneyland's official birthday on Friday, we've seen an increase in crowd levels (currenly the MouseWait Crowd Index at 5pm Monday is showing 89, which is quite high). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the 80s. However, this year we are predicting mid-80s which means it should be busier. According to the weather report, it will get hot this weekend, which could lead to reduced crowds. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 20, 2015 6:05PM



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  487.8 #404 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7108 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  381.2 #551 7:32AM

Going to be in the park Dec. 29-Jan. 2. We've always been during the Summer and Spring so this will be our very first time there during the Holiday Season. What is the weather there like during Winter, what should Hubby and I be packing and what should I be packing for my two boys ages 8 and 9? I know the park is usually packed during the Holidays (from what I have read), would we still be able to park hop (we bought 5 days park hoppers) if we get our hands stamped? TIA. =) - MaryinVancouver888  5.3 #16511 4:17AM
