Pirates Taking Over Disney

By Butterboom Writers  /  May 3, 2007

A whole month of swabbing the decks awaits.


As mentioned last month, Disneyland is getting a Pirates makeover for the month of May and June. See Captain Jack Sparrow in Hong Kong and feel the power of Disney’s movie marketing machine:

For the daring, guests can get in touch with their inner swashbuckling self as they learn how to be a pirate in Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Boot Camp. All newly trained guest pirates can further seek adventures in the rest of the Pirate Land. Midway games such as Rum Tumble and Captain Hook’s Ring Toss as well as Treasure Hunt are the best options to practice the Pirate’s skills.

Equipped with their new skills, guests can dare to journey into uncharted waters on board the Jungle River Cruise, Pirate Takeover! where pirate sightings, frights and delights await them around every corner. A giant pirate flag reading, “PIRATE ISLAND – BEWARE” hoisted above Tarzan’s Tree House, will serve as a reminder that the pirates are the rulers of Adventureland now.

I still think Chow Yun Fat will steal the show with this awesome look.
