STEP UP, ME ‘EARTIES, YO HO!
Sometimes you need only to look down to see some Disney World Secrets!
When you exit many attractions throughout the Magic Kingdom, you step upon a moving walkway. Normally that there are footprints painted on the walkway to indicate which direction you should go. Next time you depart from your boat, look at the “footprints” Disney Imagineers placed on the moving walkway as you exit the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. The single boot print followed by a small circle are the markings belonging to a peg-legged pirate!
Oh, by the way, have you seen the Mermaids?
Ahoy mates! Coming this Summer, adventures await at Walt Disney World when Captain Jack Sparrow himself brings his swashbuckling antics to Magic Kingdom in a new interactive quest to the park this spring. It’s called “A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas” and an adventure it will be! Join our new facebook group here to join in the fun from home!
The experience will have guests playing the role of a pirate in an attempt to save Adventureland. There will be five different pirate raids, each with a separate map, as well as a talisman, to guide you in your quest of collecting treasure.
On the adventure, guests will interact with Captain Jack Sparrow’s famous compass and come in contact with things like a parrot, an oyster, a bobcat spirit, a cannon, and a treasure chest. “A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas” will take us through five different “pirate raids” fighting off Captain Jack Sparrow’s many enemies including the Royal Navy and Captain Barbossa among others. We will of course – look for treasure along the way.
Guests will be equipped with a pirate map and a “magic” talisman looks to be placed inside a skull (photos to come!) where guests will begin the adventure. It looks as though the Royal Navy and captain Barbossa aren’t the only things we need to be on the look out for. Images of sharks circling in the water, cannons, talking shrunken heads, battles between ships in a bottle and other scoundrel activity will be just a few obstacles placed in your way to finding the treasure. Some of the “raids” might take place inside the shops near the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, maybe the Swiss Family Tree House, and near the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction entrance.
Guests who are successful in helping Captain Jack eliminate his foes and locate the Seven Seas treasures will be welcomed as part of his new crew. Those who do not are sentenced to “face the wrath of the cruel sea – alone.”
With the announcement of a 5th Pirates of the Caribbean movie set to hit theaters on July 10, 2015 we can’t help but wonder if “A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas” will give us some hints as to what’s coming next for the mischievous Jack Sparrow and his scallywag adventures.
