  • POTC ... ever noticed?

    Right when you leave Lafitte's Landing, look straight up and don't look away. You'll see a shooting star every 30 secs or so. Anybody ever noticed that projection?

    My wife and I noticed it again when she had her first ride this last week. It's right in front of the Blue Bayou above us. As always, love the extra added ambiance.

      That star's been there since before I was a little girl.

        Definitely yes! I love that effect during the ride. Another little touch that makes DL rides so much better than everywhere else!

          Yeah, that's the first thing that the kids look for when we have a meal at the Blue Bayou.

          Nice touch!

                Yeah, and also RIGHT before you leave the landing look up to the left, theres some white thing that looks like pacman. I see it every time! Anyone know what it is?

                And also, the fire in the ride was caused by a menorah, as you can see in a window.

                But yeah, the shooting star is cool

                  When I was a kid I used to count the stars when we ate at Blue Bayou. There seem to be fewer fireflies now than there used to be though. The last time we rode it I think I only saw two. Maybe my memories have just gotten exaggerated over the years but I remember there being more.

                    Yep. The shooting star has been there since Pirates first opened in 1967.

                    It has gone on temporary "hiatus" a few times however. But it always eventually came back.

                      We had never noticed it before in all our visits, but for some strange reason this year we saw it!!

                              How is that possible?

                              I've never noticed the star before. I'll have to look for it next time.....

                                  That is very interesting, I've not heard about, (or seen) this. I'll certainly have to take a look next time I'm there. (I would never have found that one on my own!)

                                    I think the fireflies tend to burn out from time to time. I remember seeing several right after the refurb, maybe 7 - 10. I always look for them as I'm planning to get some for the backyard, and some micechatters were kind enough to tell me where to get them online.

                                      I have always liked the shooting star. Gave an added ambience.

                                        Yeah, that thing has been there forever. I think it may have been off for a while last year, but it's good to know that it is back.
