Pirates of the Caribbean

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)
photos by Robert Miller
I'm not sure if they were modeled after the same girl but I do know that both pieces were created by the same artist, animator and imagineer Marc Davis! I have also posted fun facts about the Pirates of the Caribbean ride before. If you would like to go read them you can click here, it will take you right to them. Oh and don't forget to test your Disney knowledge on my poll to the right.
Make sure you go visit Babes in Disneyland to see all the other awesome Disney Blogs.
