Mermaids Make a Splashing Debut at Pirates of the Caribbean at Walt Disney World Resort

Last month, we hinted here that something from the film “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” would be added into the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction here at Walt Disney World Resort.

Mermaids Make a Splashing Debut at Pirates of the Caribbean

These new additions, the lovely (but also dangerous) Mermaids of Whitecap Bay, recently made their debut at the attraction. You can spot them early on in the attraction’s grotto scene, where you can spy a mermaid skeleton and possibly even catch them swimming alongside your boat. You can also hear a mermaid beckon you with her siren song just before your drop into the pirate battle. Additional rockwork and props have also been added into the Dead Man’s Cove scene.

This isn’t the first time something from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise has debuted at our Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Famous faces from the film, including Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain Barbossa, and most recently the ghostly apparitions of knaves Davy Jones and Blackbeard, have all materialized over the years.

Which addition has been your favorite? Tell us in the “comments” section below.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Returns Tonight at Magic Kingdom Park

As a child, fall, to me, meant falling leaves, pumpkin patches, and the countdown to Halloween and trick-or-treating.

As an adult, it means taking my family to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for our ultimate fix of Halloween fun. The event returns to Magic Kingdom Park tonight, with the first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicking off at 7 p.m

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary at Magic Kingdom Park

The party is a special event that’s held on select evenings at the park, and purchase of a special ticket is required. Parties include trick-or-treating (for kids of all ages), performances of Mickey’s “Boo to You Parade” and Halloween-themed “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks, Disney characters in costume, access to theme park attractions and much more.

This year, I’m looking forward to experiencing the party’s new entertainment elements, including the Not-So-Scary Street Jam with the Creepa Crew, which will happen only on Main Street, U.S.A. The Creepa Crew will lead guests in a choreographed dance to China Anne McClain’s “Calling All the Monsters” (you can get a quick lesson here), as well as a performance to “Monster Mash.” This year’s “Boo To You” parade will also feature the Halloween debut of the Jolly Roger Pirate Flag Corps.

And then there’s the candy: A total of 215 tons have been trucked in for this fall’s 23 party nights. This year, guests can enjoy trick-or-treating at 16 different candy stations scattered throughout the park, including a new stop in Storybook Circus called Casey Jr.’s Candy Junction. The candy selection will also feature a few new additions, but you’ll have to see for yourself exactly what’s in store.

Remaining party dates are:

  • September 11, 14, 18 21, 25, 28, 30
  • October 4, 5, 8, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 22, 23, 25, 28, 30 and 31
