#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'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  2672.3 #66 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 #385 4:41AM
Would love to hear the story! - MsTikiMermadam  2299.7 #83 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  2672.3 #66 2:26PM

The earliest known concept for the story of Haunted Mansion revolved around Gideon Gorelieu, also known as Bartholomew Gore or Captain Gore. Captain Gore married a woman named Priscilla. One day Captain Gore had to go off to sea on some business and told Priscilla not to enter the attic of the Mansion while he was gone. Well, curiousity got to Priscilla and she went up into the attic and looked ar  More...

Forgot to mention the concept story that would have linked together Pirates, Mansion and Tom Sawyer's Island into a single fluid storyline. An Imagineer namedΒ Eddie Sotto came up with a story concept that had Jean Lafitte Β as the one time owner of the Mansion who used it as a safe house for hiding his treasure and smuggling items to and from his base on Tom Sawyer Island. Now, as you may know, the dock at Pirate's of the Caribbean is named Lafitte's Landing and Jean Lafitte's anchor is on display along the Rivers of America. Jean Lafitte was a pirate who made his way around the Caribbean and had a base in New Orleans, he also aided the US Navy with the defense of the city during The War of 1812. Anyway, the concept was that Jean Lafitte's life was shown in Pirates of the Caribbean and there was going to be a hidden crypt full of loot underneath New Orleans Square that would lead from Pirates over to Mansion. Tom Sawyer's Island would have shipwrecks, pirate lairs and hidden forts with gold and the like on it, sound familiar?. Β Hints to this proposed plan still exist and much more was used throughout the land's life. For instance, there is a small bricked up sunken archway along the Rivers of America by the Mansion that is said to have been where the crypt would have exited. When Pirates the movie came out, there was a show in NOS that had a small stage where the pirates would perform from, along the stage were props to do with smuggling and also a portrait of Miss April-December that was used in the Mansion's changing portrait hallway. Finally, if you go look at the River Notices board by the raft dock, there is an article about Tom and Huck being found being pirates on the island. If you read the entire thing, it states that rumors say the island was used as a base by Jean Lafitte.Β  - CM_Shadowgamer  2672.3 #66 4:28PM

I’m thrilled to introduce the Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel as the Official Hotel of MouseWait! They are offering us some of the most affordable rates in Anaheim with a special MouseWait rate that gets you $15 off per night.   More...

Great news! I’ve been staying there since the 1960s! Our goto offsite hotel. We stay there almost monthly. Our son is checking in today for a couple of days and we have reservations there for the D23 Convention. Very convenient hotel. Shuttle runs every 30 minutes and they’ll use several shuttles if one bus is full. The restaurant is very good, we’ve had breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As this is an older property the rooms are quite large, some regular rooms are over 400 sq.ft. and many rooms have been recently remodeled. There can be noise from the 5 Fwy so ask for an interior/courtyard room for quiet. The property is large so study the hotel map. There are lots of entries and exits but must use hotel key to enter. There is also a property map at each elevator location. Also if you don’t want to wait for the shuttle you can take the tram back to Mickey & Friends and walk through the parking garage to Ball Road. Probably a 10 minute walk from tram stop. I will always book with the MW link from now on! Congrats @@@@Admin on the new sponsor! - jacdanfan  15528.0 #5 7:13AM

They have confirm that a seperate entrance will be avaiable on harbor with its own security check point. There will be a shuttle for those neeing assistance from the new structure to near the espanade ( think another MIckey van service} and pizza press will close the lease is up in april. walking to the structure is 10 minutes or less than a mile which is less than walking from mickey and friends to the security checkpoint. - pikaplaid  8125.5 #16 9:31AM

This concerns me, especially for the future I hope they don't go back to separate ap  per park or charge even more for a combined one with star wars land and more comming it could happen. - pikaplaid  8125.5 #16 6:37PM
Well, I think it would be another somewhat affordable option for people. Β I can say with confidence that I'd rather have a DCA pass than no pass at all.

The perks are great for those who want to visit a Disney Park. With this pass, one can get 10% off food and merchandise and it comes with a collectors pin. There are blockout dates, but the first use has to come before Dec. 1 2016.  This ticket is also eligible for upgrade to any AP. Hope this info helps - BaseballMickey  9156.0 #14 1:25PM

Parents, visitors, come from all over the world and with minis all the time. The entire family can enjoy including infants any ride that does not have a height requirement. But what happens when you want to ride a that any of your minis cannot ride due to height or scarred and you have multiple parents/adults in your group. I’m sorry you will have to sit outside and talk with other people while your group goes in and enjoys the ride…sorry. Fear not Disney has a rider switch/parent swap program in place to accommodate this. First see a cm at the ride attraction and ask for the parent swap.  You will be issued a rider switch pass ( check the pass in most rides 2 people can go back but I have seen in some rides like btrr and splash where 3 can go back) or sometimes you are handed a red time card to exchange for a pass switch near the loading cm. Pay attention to where you are to return in some rides you return through the exit and in some you go to the fasspass line ask the cm.  Now while the rest of your party goes and ride , the adult watching the kids wait for their party members to return. Then you take your pass and Switch (based on the number of people allowed back could be 2 maybe 3 check your pass) and go though the designated return area and ride. Thank you Disney as this allows everyone to enjoy the ride without having to have an adult wait the entire wait time. Please note that you are not guaranteed immediate boarding. Another Program available is the single rider program. This is different and helps to fill open spots on certain rides and fill to capacity. The single rider program can open and close at any time and not available at all times if the ride time is short and or too many people are in line as well. If you decide to go as a group do not expect to ride in the same vehicle and will split and a single rider must meet height and age requirements to ride so don’t send your 5 yr by themselves. Ask for single rider and you may be issued a single rider pass or directed to go to a separate single rider entrance. Final word parent swap is at any ride with a height requirement . Single rider is limited to In DISNEYLAND- ( splash mnt , Indiana Jones and matterhorn) and in DCA – ( soaring over California, RSR, California Screaming, Goofys sky school and at grizzly river run although grizzy does limit the number of single riers throughout the day.

The person obtaining the pass has to actual wait in line. Then the person that uses the pass just uses the FP line. This also applies to the single rider line. When we were heading to the line at RSR, this woman wanted to go through pushing a stroller and get the pass for her husband. Her husband wasn't with her, and the CM told her he had to be there and that she couldn't bring the stroller through. She kept going on about how he was just in the store and she just wanted to get him the pass. I pushed past her and didn't hear the end of the conversation. - EmperorsHandLelundrial  1097.1 #207 8:44AM
Bump and the only change was that you must all be present in front of the cm ,they will hand you a pass or red card that will be exchanged for an actual parent swap when your party about to board the ride cutting down on some abuses and ensure everyone wait the time posted - pikaplaid  8125.5 #16 7:08PM

#Disneyland News Here's the latest from on the new Disneyland and DCA Expansion. In return for no gate tax fee on guest, Disney has pledged to spend 1 billion on parks and parking at the parks, and city infrastructure in the next few years. Article by ART MARROQUIN ANAHEIM -- The Walt Disney Co. early Wednesday was granted a 30-year ban on ticket taxes charged to visitors of D  More...

what this is about is trying to put a tax on the ticket sales. Mayor Tait wanted the tax money to fund his employee retirement pension funds. It was a long meeting from 5pm till past 11pm last night. It was hard voting for council members last november because I really did not like any of them. I finally decided to vote for the ones that backed disney’s needs. At least the roads around disney were repaved and the medians were beautified. No other entertainment parks (except the berry farm) tax entrance tickets. None of the Disney parks world wide have this tax. The angel stadium is leased and their tickets are not taxed. So it was nice to see that many anaheim citizens came forward and spoke up about this ongoing money grab from a private sector successful business vs a government entity who seems to not be able to set up a plan to fund their own pension plan. SMH but not surprised - Plumiegirl  10907.8 #11 5:55PM
What I don't get is the tax would have made $25 million for what he kept changing it was for i. e. The underfunded pension fund oh but wait maybe a community center for the low income area, and yet this expansion will generate more money for them than that. I think they should have gone along with the proposal but asked for specific things in the infrastructure plan like some to the pension, some to a center, some to the schools. They had several months of pre-talks with Disney to suggest this. I know DL will always be here but it will insure they don't pass over the DL resorts to put money into other parks they have. The Angels are already talking about leaving, he needs to compromise too. I had the same problem in my city at vote time, all they do is fight,  - secretagentangel  13749.1 #9 6:13PM
IMO Disney has the best and brightest for them most part. They can make plans, set budgets, finance, litigate if needed, and ultimately make a profit. This a basic definition of good business. Now government does not do or does a poor job of needs assessment, does not set a budget with a time frame, scratches their heads on how to fund things and no one ever compromises or agrees. It is about who will buy them in their back pocket. I will say that it is hard to get folks to agree with different opinions Β but their side is all over the place where Disney has a proposal, an estimated amount to build with, a financial plan and makes a profit Β which is partly the money to be set aside for for future projects. I have not seen a clear plan from our counsel or local government. I looked up all their degrees and resumes before voting and not one MBA was in there. They mostly had the liberal art type degrees or no degrees... No real professionals just lifers looking for their next govenment position to get another elected job.Β  - Plumiegirl  10907.8 #11 11:04PM
since anaheim has overcrowding in homes and lack of parking, why not just do permit parking and then hire parking ticket folks. Curbs are there already and instant revenue for their pension funds.  - Plumiegirl  10907.8 #11 11:10PM
They should pay for their own retirements like the rest of us! - TinkerSchelle  2140.8 #91 7:07PM
