    CELEBRATION, Fla., July 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A mysterious pirate ship has landed at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, providing Disney Cruise Line guests with a swashbuckling photo opportunity and a sneak peek into movie- making magic.

    Starting in early July guests sailing on a Disney Cruise Line vacation will discover a 175-foot ghost ship anchored at Castaway Cay. The ship is the Flying Dutchman, which makes its silver screen debut on July 7 in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. The Flying Dutchman's commander is the legendary Davy Jones, who serves as nemesis to the infamous pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow, in the upcoming film. "The Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise is extremely popular, and having the Flying Dutchman ship at Castaway Cay is something truly unique that only Disney Cruise Line could offer guests," said Disney Cruise Line President Tom McAlpin.

    The intricate film prop is unlike any other pirate ship -- with ragged sails and a barnacle-encrusted bow, the ship looks like it was raised off the ocean floor to haunt the open seas for eternity. The Flying Dutchman will provide a scenic photo backdrop, and guests renting boats on the island will be able to get an up-close look at the ghost ship. While visiting Castaway Cay, guests should also be on the lookout for the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow. With the Flying Dutchman lurking just off the shore, the eccentric captain may be spotted around the island. Guests are encouraged to approach the hero and hear his tales about adventure on the high seas. The charming pirate graciously accepts requests for portraits and autographs -- if guests can manage to track him down.

    Disney Cruise Line will also hold a PremEAR at Sea of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest in the Walt Disney Theatre of both the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder. On Friday, July 7, guests aboard Disney Cruise Line will receive commemorative buttons and pirate-themed temporary tattoos and will be invited to view the premiere of the film at 12:01 a.m. The addition of the Flying Dutchman to Castaway Cay will enhance what already is a highlight of a Disney Cruise Line vacation.

    The Flying Dutchman?

    Has anyone got any pictures of the Flying Dutchman anchored at Castaway Cay? It should have arrived there in late June along with the openings of the new Pirates rides at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom.

                  Does this mean the kids that go out too far are going to get forced into Jones' crew? And is the Kraken going to randomly destroy what's left of those 20K Nautilus vehicles they parked in the shallows there?
