  • [Question] Pirates of the Caribbean/Blue Bayou alligator

    Long been one of my favorite subtle details of the park: the alligator to the left of the boat, before the swamp shack with the old man in the rocking chair. Very dimly lit and below the level of the side of the boat: pretty much you need to be looking for it or glance over there at the right second, over the side and down, to see it.

    So my question is (and the answer likely no), anyone have a photo of this alligator? Flash (boo! Hiss!) more likely in this case given the moving target, darkness, and closeness to the boat if any is out there. Thanks in advance for sharing any sources with potential photo!

      Thanks very much, exploding!

      My secret hope is for a show lighting (very dark) but evocative one, shot head on...but that's not likely to happen. This is certainly better than I'd seen before, so thanks to you and Daveland!

        No problem! I'll see if I can't dig around a bit and find another photo. There has to be something out there.

              I absolutely never noticed this! How cool. Something new (to me) to look for!

                Ha! I always notice that ol' Gator, even without a flashlight you can see it if you tilt your head enough. The blue background light of the bayou illuminates the outline of his body.

                By the way, has been named yet? I know the dragon from fantasmic has a name.

                We should name the PoTC alligator.

                      I always see that gator when I go. I don't know how or why but it always stands out to me. I'm just weird I would assume. :blush:

                          Well, the old man in the shack has always been called 'Uncle A G' in my family because he bears an uncanny resemblance to a late, much loved uncle. If the 'gator has no official name, I think it only right that MiceChatters give him/her one!

                          How about 'Little Jack'? After all, what's one more Jack on PoTC. BwaaHaaaa.

                              It may just be me, but doesn't the Alligator move back and fourth? I went on it today and it wasn't moving. Can anybody tell me if I'm not just seeing things

                                It is not (and has not ever been) robotic/animated, as far as I can tell from looking deliberately for/at it on at least 15 rides on Pirates. Just sits there, watching

                                Always in the same position and definitely no back and forth motion I've witnessed. The lighting and motion of the boat/water lapping could give that impression, I suppose, if you see it out of the corner of your eye.

                                    Charles.

                                    I'm wondering if he (or she) was added back in the '97 refurbishment. Could this gator possibly be one of the three floating crocodiles removed from the Jungle Cruise during the addition of Indiana Jones? It looks very similar.

                                      I like these. I think that Henri is my particular favorite. But that's probably due to the fact that I'm terrible with French and have no clue how most of the othes would be pronounced. Although, to me, he looks like a Barnabas. Not exactly sure why, especially since I do think that being in New Orleans, a French name would be perfect, and that's not a very French name. But for some reason or another, it popped into my mind.
