The World does need more Captain Jack Sparrow

  You may have heard rumors throughout the week about a new " interactive" Captain Jack Sparrow attraction reportedly coming to Hollywood Studios. I know my eyebrows lifted and I may even have whispered "yessssssss" when I first read the reports. It's getting harder to have your picture taken with the Captain at Magic Kingdom since every other mom like me fluffs up their hair and applies more lip gloss when they see him coming.

  Yesterday the Disney Parks Blog officically announced that the attraction is a go, but didn't provide too many other details. According to Jason Roberts, show producer for Walt Disney Imagineering, “This is going to be an immersive experience. We’ll really delve into the story of Captain Jack Sparrow and put our guests in the middle of it all in new and exciting ways. Story is always the most important thing for us at Walt Disney Imagineering, but we’re always looking at new ways to tell the story that our guests have never seen before. In this attraction, we’ll let you walk in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow. It’s not ‘the making of,’ not ‘behind the scenes’ … it is really a first-person experience. We worked with the archives as well as the filmmakers while they were shooting the last movie. And as a fan, I just loved sitting through those films again and again, going through all the details and leveraging them for this new experience. It’s really been a blast.”

  It could be replacing the Narnia space at the Studios and may not be open closer to the upcoming Fall. Either way , whatever gets me a little bit closer to the Captain is alright with me. Fluff hair, apply lip gloss.

I pushed my way through several crowds of ladies to get this picture. "Excuse me...EXCUSE ME!"
