Pirates!!

OMG I went to Disneyland yesterday for the re-opening of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Got in line (which was all the way down Main Street in front of the Emporium) a few minutes before 8 am. Johnny Depp cut the rope to let us in, but unfortunately I was too far back to see him. Astonishingly, the line only took about an hour, and it was so worth it!!



The ride really isn't much different. There's a nice painted Captain Jack Sparrow on the wall when you first get into the building. Some of the dialog has changed. There are 3 animatronic Jack Sparrows throughout the ride and the captain of the ship that is bombarding the fort is now Barbossa! Bits of the movie soundtrack are heard at one point, and there is a really cool effect of a waterfall, with Davy Jones' head projected onto it--and the boat goes right through it!! I have a couple pictures from outside, but my computer doesn't seem to want to read the disk, so I'll post them later.

I think I would have wet myself.

Could you imagine if it had been Orlando Bloom, and I HAD BEEN THERE? Ohmigod.
