60th Anniversary Trip, Pt. 2: POTC
Welcome to the Blue Bayou, where every journey through Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean attraction begins. It's also a chance to see the Blue Bayou Restaurant, where those who plan ahead and make reservations MIGHT have a chance of getting a table!
Back to the Bayou, I was pretty happy with how the shots from this particular journey turned out.
I think our boat was going slower than usual, which helps tremendously when shooting in low light situations.
Next thing I knew, we had already descended into the magical blue depths of the Pirate Grotto.
Look at this poor sap with the sword in his back; he's not telling any tales.
The Captain apparently lived long enough to enjoy his riches.
What a treasure room.
Zooming in for a better look:
The Wicked Wench:
I was finally able to get a decent shot of the projection effect of a duel on the fortress' wall:
My VERY favorite character in this attraction, the Red Headed Wench.
You knew I was going to give you a closeup of her:
The lusty onlookers across the way…
and on the bridge overhead:
Further down the way we encounter more lusty (and blitzed) pirates.
Here kitty kitty kitty. Since the men chasing women scenes are politically incorrect, how about one of a dog chasing a cat?
The Merry Minstrels, singing X Atencio's famous tune:
One of the many classic Marc Davis gags:
Another favorite character, the hairy-legged pirate:
You can't help but feel sorry for this trio of imprisoned saps:
Watch out for shots overhead:
Jack Sparrow, attempting to broaden the appeal of this attraction (as if it really needed it).
The final image is (of course) the exit:
Was that enough photos for one post? TOMORROW: Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!
Aaaaaaargh your way over to my main website for more POTC photos.
