To CM Jake at Chamber of Commerce in DCA, your the best buddy!!!! I will be t More...
The worst feeling in the world is losing your wallet or purse. One of the best feelings in the world is having those things returned to u intact. That is the type of thing that restores ones faith in humanity. - aidensmama

Amen to that!!!!!!!!! I was super worried that someone had taken it and taken my money... But I'm so glad that the person who found it had a heart and the kindness to turn it in. Words can't describe how I feel for this person. - JayPea79 22.2 #4885 12:44AM
Hcouldnt have said it better myself!! This gave me warm fuzzys! 😍 - Duchess_SMK 3298.0 #11 6:36AM
The craziness is upon us. It's going to be madness today, and probably the rest of the summer. Patience will be tested - not just as guests but for the CMs especially. So I urge all of us to take the time to tell a CM that they're doing a good job and that you understand how hard it must be to be working with the big crowds. Many guests will have bad attitudes, and since we're all human, some CMs More...
Thank you so much. I'm working the Pixar Parade today (1st time) so while I'll be busy please stop by for a hello and a hug! - SUUZinOC

I could use a hug! Have a great day Suzy!! - JenInWonderland 1025.1 #86 10:02AM
Jen, of course you get a hug. And if your at DCA today you really will need one!!! - SUUZinOC 715.4 #140 10:35AM
Thank you for posting this!! Yes, PLEASE have tons of patience with DCA CM's. Everyone is doing their best job to make opening experience a very magical one. Please give them all positive vibes, it's our park's first time seeing large numbers that amount to what DL has in holidays or summer time. Plus closing at 11pm not what we're used to. Please encourage our CM's, they're trying their absolute best to spread the magic in this historical day for us!! 😊 - iPoca.

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

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 122.9 #2689 11:36AM
Oh my gosh! So cool. Where else does he appear in the ride? - BlackCanary86 40.9 #3976 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 531.4 #216 11:50AM
I did not know that. Cool - cesium55 529.7 #218 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 122.9 #2689 11:53AM
I've read so much into Pirates! This has to be my favorite thing! I love it!! - AshleyLynn22 747.6 #136 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 317.8 #533 12:58PM
I'd love to hear the haunted mansion story! Can anyone send it to me? - AshleyLynn22 747.6 #136 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 122.9 #2689 2:00PM
WOW!! CMJenKWorth will you be my new best friend?! - AshleyLynn22 747.6 #136 2:08PM
Haha.. Sure! I used to be a Mansion Maid.. Loved every second of it. I miss it sometimes. - CMJenKWorth 122.9 #2689 2:12PM
Yup I'm claiming you as my new BFF! I want to hear all your stories! Lol - AshleyLynn22 747.6 #136 2:18PM
I've always wondered if there was something going on with that guy! Thanks for sharing! - DisneylAndy 205.6 #1545 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 355.2 #404 8:19PM
Wow I love both these stories! Thanks for Sharing guys! #extremequality. - NeverlandTink 421.4 #304 9:12PM

Wow! Very interesting article! - AshleyLynn22 747.6 #136 2:17AM
Walt passed before the POTC attraction was complete, this was one of his babies and he took pride in it. - GoofyJoe 1864.2 #41 10:38AM
Goofy that is why I love it so much! - AshleyLynn22 747.6 #136 10:50AM
Mine is the one in which iasw opened any Walt had children from different cultures represented and they all poured one gallon of water into the attraction, now when they drain the water they take a gallon of water out to keep the "culture" 💙💙💙✨✨✨ - Mouseketeer.for.Short
