Pirates at Disneyland

In honarrgh of the International Talk Like A Pirate Day, I present to you one of the scariest and blood thirstiest crews to have ever set sail or foot in Disneyland. The first image of the swashbucklers shows them in front of their Pirate Ship as it was docked at Fantasyland. See the cold blooded gleam in their eyes and the blood thirsty look on their faces.

The next photo shows what can happen when Pirates board your boat. The pirates command you to take it through the thrilling Fantasyland rapids! Beware I fear there be squalls ahead- Keep a sharp eye out for trouble! Avast you there, keep both hands on the wheel!

And to answer Kurt's question from yesterday, most of the photographs come out of swap meets and flea markets. Usually from estates where there were no relatives who wanted the images or from unclaimed storage.

These photos have a great nostalgic feeling. Isn't that first picture taken from the back side of the Pirate Ship? You don't see too many photos taken from that side.

Regarding your comment on how you find these pics, it is somewhat sad that these meant so much to someone years ago. Life goes on....

I was thinking the same thing that anonymous did; especially with that first shot of the mom and 2 adorable kids. Hard to imagine nobody wanting these. Great post! Aaaargh!

Well, when they're all dead, all that's left are the Disneyland fans. My late parents took LOTS of 8mm movies of their cruises, where my dad would film the banquet tables ("Oooh, look at all the food.") and Mom would film the stand-up comics performing on the cruise (This is SILENT 8mm film!) and when it ran, just say, "Oh,he was so funny."

"What's he saying here, Mom?"

"I don't remember, but it was so funny."

These films all went into the trash when they died. Neither I nor any of my siblings had any desire to ever sit through them again.

Very funny text accompanying these pictures today Matterhorn. Really enjoyed it.
