    Still looking for drop length
    Oh, yikes. This brings me back to Geometry.

    In Tokyo, they actually do take your picture as you dodge the boulder. It works so well because there is already a strobe light there in both parks.

      i thought i'd say, DLP POTC does take photo's on the drop, i don't know if it's different in california but it blends in with the ride as when you go down the drop it's like you've run into a storm or something and thats when theres the flash of the cameras. I think it is pretty much the same layout as CA, but it does work. It's fun to see the faces of people when you come out

          I wish they could build a electronic hand that lifts up and slaps people when they dont shut up during pirates, I mean I like to get into the ride relax and enjoy myself, but I always stuck in front of or behind the most disrespectful people in the park, usually teenage girls they never shut up, Somedays I will just look at em but others I will actually ask them to be quiet. Let us enjoy the ride already.

            I don't remember there being a picture on DLP's Pirates, but then I haven't been there since 2005.

            I'm not totally against having pictures on POTC. I think making great memories at Disneyland starts with pictures. As long as there wasn't a flash, which seems pretty impossible. I don't always think photos of rides have to be "thrill". I truly enjoy the ridiculous faces I make while riding BLAB because I am too busy trying to out shoot whoever I am riding with to look nice for a photo.

            I agree. But I'm always stuck with people who are snapping away photos with flash. Two years ago this one guy was taking so many pictures (with flash, ugh), I swear if I had looked at his photos he'd have a whole slide show of the ride from start to finish. I try not to snap at people but flashing photos and line-cutters ruin the fun for everyone, so I always end up having to say something.

                not the best backdrop.
                if it's dark, it's dark for a reason in the ride (illusion or to cover up).
                If it was bright in there, the illusion of a rock wall would be ruined (plus I doubt in the dark areas they put a lot of work into making it look pretty)

                You are exactly right; anyone who's seen Pirates with the work lights on would know just how different it looks down there.
                I think adding ride photos is a really bad idea in general, but especially to a Walt Disney classic.

                  At DLP, as the photo is taken on the second drop, the only area of the ride to be illuminated by the flash is the area surrounding the flume, none of the AA figures or backdrops are spoilt. The flash is so well disguised, you really don't notice it. Also, the whole boat is photographed obviously, but when you buy the picture, the CM zooms in so that you can have just your party in the shot.

                  I understand that some of you might not want a photo point added to DL's POTC as it wasn't there to begin with, but for me it's such a part of the DLP version I'd hate to see it go! Not sure if it was there to begin with though, but it's been there since I've been visiting since 2004.

                    I can't picture it, but I'd become accustom to it in a flash.
