#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  2515.7 #52 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 #320 4:41AM
Would love to hear the story! - MsTikiMermadam  678.9 #282 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  2515.7 #52 2:26PM
Oh wow!  Great info!  I really like the fact about the Lincoln animatronic!  That's something I didn't know! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2413.4 #56 2:28PM

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 namedย Eddie Sotto came up with a story concept that had Jean Lafitte ย 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?. ย 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.ย  - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.7 #52 4:28PM

When in the parks solo last night posting I came to the thought that some things in our lives are easier said than done.  I was just reminded on what is an whom are important in my life. We sometimes tell ourselves how we are supposed to feel, how we should act, how were going to move forward; but when it comes down to reality its totally against our true feelings and just does not feel right  More...

Dear Father God, we thank You for our friend GIP who is going through some very scary issues right now.  And we believe in miracles!!  You gave him the miracle of life when he was born, when his kids were born and when his grandbaby was  born, and we are asking You for the miracle of life again to keep him healthy, remove the cancer in whatever way You will as he wants to be with his family forever.  I ask if there is a doctor or medical procedure out there he has not heard of, let that knowledge come to him or just heal him outright and blast those cancer cells right out.  We know when many of us come together and agree in prayer You will answer us and give us miracles too if it is Your will, so please Father God, heal our friend, give him the miracle he needs.  And help us be there for him and his family in anything they many need and guide them and give them Your peace to follow Your will.  We love you and thank You for this and GIP, in Jesus's name, Amen.  Anything you need at all GIP, whether there in phoenix or here, we will help in whatever you need.  and I will pray my knees off until you are healed.  lots of love and God bless! - secretagentangel  2924.0 #43 4:18PM
