    What happened to "Old Bill" Pirate?

    I went on a day and a half trip to Disneyland with all the Cast Members of our Disney Store. While riding Pirates of the Caribbean, I noticed that the Pirate that is drinking and talking to the cats saying "Here kitty, kitty, kitty. Have a little ol' shot of rum with old Bill, aye." was missing. What happened to him? Does anyone know?

    The cats ate him.
    "JESUS!!! That's Cold!" -- Walt Disney's final words.

    "You hear people talk about, 'I don't think Walt would like this,' or 'I don't think Walt would like that.' You have no idea what Walt would want! No clue whatsoever! Because the people that worked with him day in and day out didn't know what Walt wanted. Walt didn't know what he wanted 'til he wanted it."

    He's out trying to round up a few more of the feral cats that hang out in the Park.

    He heard that some MC'ers were a little upset that the cats were looking a little lonely.

    He should be back in no time!

    Maybe he's on vacation and had trouble with his passport?

    He was at least gone by Christmas Day. What's odd is the cats still mewed for at least a week before being eventually silenced...

    He was gone when I rode it 2 days after Christmas, so if he's still gone, there might be something seriously wrong with him.

    Cool Re: What happened to "Old Bill" Pirate?

    I think he has been missing for quite a while now. I hope he comes back soon.

    Well the dog that sings with the pirates in the next scene was gone for well over a year so since December is long, but it could (and I hope not cause Ol' Bill is my favorite pirate in that attraction) be that long.

    Re: What happened to "Old Bill" Pirate?

    I've noticed that he's been gone for quite some time also. He's been gone for a lot of January, and I really hope that while they are working on him, I hope it's nothing serious.
