There have been a lot of Disney fact posts lately-so why not do a Disney fact thread! They are always fun when new people enter the lounge....so what's your favorite Disney fact?
The fact that the old man playing the banjo in Pirates is not some random old man. He is actually A pirate named Jean Laffite. He hid in the Lousiana swamp lands and that's also why the loading dock is called "Laffite's Landing" 😊 - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #183 9:43AM

And the ride, well before they put all the movie stuff in, is a journey through his memories of being a pirate. When you go down the first drop, you are supposed to be descending into his mind and he appears several other places during the ride. The story is also tied in with Haunted Mansion, that's why the weather vane is a ship. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #2920 11:36AM
Oh my gosh! So cool. Where else does he appear in the ride? - BlackCanary86  48.7 #4311 11:48AM
Between these two rides there was supposed to be a crypt. You can still see the top arch of the would be doorway along the wall/bench/sidewalk dividers (don't know how to describe it) between potc and hm. it has a date on top of the arch - Pixarprincess  539.3 #314 11:50AM
I did not know that. Cool - cesium55  531.6 #320 11:51AM
Absolutely correct. It was going to be a tunnel walkway thing linking the attractions into one story. The date is the birth year of the imagineer who came up with it minus 200 years I believe. Every attraction in the parks has a story tied to it. The mansion one is very interesting. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #2920 11:53AM
I've read so much into Pirates! This has to be my favorite thing! I love it!! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #183 12:13PM
Really?! I had no idea! He still creeps me out, there is banjo music but no banjo.... Also I alway feel like he is watching me like a crazy stalker.... - tiggertwin  329.5 #644 12:58PM
I'd love to hear the haunted mansion story! Can anyone send it to me? - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #183 1:48PM
The Haunted Mansion story goes that The pirate Capt. Blood built the mansion for his wife and she made him promise to never go out to sea again. He told her that he had to go one last time and he was gone for a long time. When he finally came back they got into a big argument and he ended up killing her. Not sure if he killed her accidentally or out of rage. Well, he was so distraught over her death that it's rumored he hung himself in the gallery.. This is why there is a ship weathervane and the picture of the ship in the portrait hall, and also obviously the hanging man in the gallery is Capt. Blood. =) Disney has added stuff with the bride in the attic and killing her husbands and stuff.. but this is one of the original stories. Enjoy! - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #2920 2:00PM
Very cool :-) - LAFDWifey  81.5 #3601 2:05PM
WOW!! CMJenKWorth will you be my new best friend?! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #183 2:08PM
Haha.. Sure! I used to be a Mansion Maid.. Loved every second of it. I miss it sometimes. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #2920 2:12PM
Yup I'm claiming you as my new BFF! I want to hear all your stories! Lol - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #183 2:18PM
I've always wondered if there was something going on with that guy! Thanks for sharing! - DisneylAndy  205.6 #1765 4:19PM
Huh. I always heard that the bride's death was caused by her overprotective father. When the sailor was gone at sea, he came in as she was trying on her wedding dress. He lied to her, telling her that the captain died at sea. She killed herself, then when the captain came back and heard of the news, he hung himself. - snowwannab  667.4 #236 8:19PM
Wow I love both these stories! Thanks for Sharing guys! #extremequality. - NeverlandTink  422.5 #439 9:12PM

"Whenever I get gloomy about the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow airport. General opinion is starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed. But I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere...often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it is always there: fathers/sons, mothers/daughters, husbands/wives, boyfriends/girlfri  More...
I LOVE that movie  - Jaedarbell  168.2 #2259 8:56AM
