Ahoy, hi e'erybody today is Thursday which means tis' Blog Hop Day, shiver me timbers! Since this Friday is the release of Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides. the topic for the blog hop is Pirates! I love Pirates! So here is a fun fact for The Pirates of the Caribbean ride and click here to visit a fun pirate translator.
Have you ever noticed the painting of the girl dressed as a pirate hanging in the skeleton's tavern? If you have great! If not you are going to have to check it out the next time you are on the ride because she looks very similar to the portrait of the young woman that hangs in the entrance hall of the Haunted Mansion. (the one that changes into the Medusa)
