Panic on POTC!
It began like most journeys through the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disneyland. Except this time we had a VIP Tour Guide. And we entered through the exit. And we immediately got onto the attraction. Other than that it was the same. We got in our boat and sailed through the Blue Bayou, passing the Restaurant at the beginning of their lunch rush.
Everyone sang "Yo Ho" as we viewed the vignettes of the grotto.
Worst case of heartburn. He must have eaten at Goofy's Kitchen.
The Wicked Wench:
How many of you notice these heads popping up with the canon fire?
Poor Carlos. It's bad enough that he has a wife badly in need of dental work, but now he wishes he had paid attention in swim class.
Plenty of characters along the way to see, such as this Jack Sparrow animatronic at the Costurera:
and the onlookers for the wench auction.
Sorry, no Red Headed Wench shots this time; I was on the wrong side of the boat for that.
Always great to see this guy. "Here kitty, kitty…"
sounds like my next door neighbors at 3am. For realz.
Once known as the Hairy Legged Pirate, this guy has obviously fell victim to manscaping by Imaginears.
The attraction was coming to a close as we approached the jail. A skeleton…
3 nasty dudes…
another three trying to get out…
The chair and rafters overhead should have warned me that there was trouble up ahead.
When I saw the lady in the boat ahead of me stand up, I assumed she was a cast member. Then I saw what she was wearing and knew that she wasn't. Then I figured she was looking for a quick photo opportunity as she perilously straddled the boat and the "shore."
Wrong on all counts. She was having a panic attack, as she told everyone in the boats who cared to listen as they passed her by. Why she would choose to exit the boat just as it was about to take her to dry land is beyond my comprehension.
You won't find her on the map at the end, but she should be on there.
Hard to tell what you might find at the Park these days.
