My mind’s not working.
Or rather, it’s working so hard nowadays, I couldn’t slow down to blog. I’ve an upcoming conference next week (nooooo!!!), and I’m up to my neck in preparations. So bear with me and my sporadic blog posts for now.
Last Saturday found us visiting for the nth time the one and only place where kids and adults could have fun (read: we’re suckers for Disneyland). Well, actually, I got lucky again this year. Every year the recreation department offers super-duper discounted tickets for Disney Resort (Disneyland and Disneysea) to employees and their families. I applied as usual. And as usual, there were more applicants than available slots, so they decided by lottery. Lucky us, we got chosen!
To those of you who are planning to go to Tokyo Disneyland, don’t miss the chance to see Captain Jack Sparrow in the newly spruced up Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Adventureland. Jack Sparrow not only makes one, but THREE appearances! You won’t be disappointed, especially if you’re a fan of the movie. The resemblance is uncanny.
Here’s a photo to whet your appetite:
Yeah, that’s just his head. He replaced that silly-looking girl who used to occupy the same barrel. But you’ll have a full body view of Jack Sparrow in two other places. I didn’t bother taking photos for the other two – I was too busy appreciating the whole scene before me!
Wow, Johnny Depp is now immortalized. His beloved Jack Sparrow character is now a fixture at one of the world’s most-visited places.
Beware the Krakken. Here’s a map you would find along the wall just before you ride the boat. Hmm. The folks at Disney really want to milk this cash-cow for all it’s worth.
But if you were to ask me, if there’s one character in the movie that I would absolutely love to see inside the ride, it would be tako(octopus)-faced Davy Jones! Wouldn’t those tentacles be such a sight!
What about you, who would you rather see in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride?
