    Re: Hello Mr. Lassiter!!!

    I can understand your dissapointment, my group had planned around the ride opening on the 25th. However, we all watched the boards, the announcements, etc and when the change was announced to the 26th we immediately grabbed a room (at an extra $150 a night for a room that up until Monday ran $89.00 per night).

    Friends from Denver (also coming out for the re-opening of PotC) were locked into plane tickets to depart on the 26th at 8:00 a.m. So, while I was (jokingly) asked.."common, Kim..you know a LOT of people who work for the mouse" it still didn't matter. (Like I had THAT kind of knowledge and influence...yup and elephants fly..oh wait..Dumbo..well you know what I mean.) And, while there is a small SMALL chance of a soft opening on the 25th, it would be better not to get your hopes up. But you could wait outside the ride, explain to the CM and see if you can get a "hint" if there might be a soft opening later that day.

    Perhaps if it was a Make-A-Wish event and time was of the essence they might let you through early...but I would suggest if you can, postpone the trip for a few more days if possible. If not, then be honest with your son and tell him it's not open and sometimes we all have diappointments. Then try to make it the best trip you can anyways.

    But, honestly, we don't always get what we want do we... I mean if we did.. then when I look back over my shoulder at my newly re-done PotC style bedroom..there would be a certain Captain Sparrow lying on it..motioning me to come on over...

    Edit: On a very serious note: I had passes for the original PotC Red Carpet and Film Event. A Friend of mine worked on the film and was able to get my sister and I passes to get into the screening. Unfortunately, the morning of the day we were supposed to head down to the park, our Dad was diagnosed with terminal Male Breast Cancer. Needless to say, we didn't go. We immediately called our friend, explained the situation and told him to give our passes to someone who really would love to be there, but otherwise wouldn't be able to go. And while we missed a once in a lifetime event..it was nothing compared to those last six weeks we got to spend with Dad. No regrets...none whatsoever.

    This time, he is still trying not only to get passes for himself, but for us as well. As of this minute, it is not looking good for any of us. But you know what, it's ok. It has a whole new perspective this time around. If we get them great..if not..that's ok too, cause we are going to be with friends in the park.

    So, if the ride is closed, your son will survive. He is four. There will be enough pirate merchandise to spoil him rotten with. But, like I did say..you may want to start preparing him now for life. It does happen and the best layed plans...can be turned around without a moments notice. Hope you still manage to have a good time at the park. He's four, he's gonna have a great time PotC or not!

    There's also a Pirate themed show at Legoland, though I'm not sure if it's open yet. A few of you bigger Disneyland buffs might recognize a couple of the voices in that show...

    I wonder if John Lassiter would read MiceChat? I know Randy Thornton used to poke around Magicmusic.net forums. That is how we got an early inside scoop to the Disneyland 50th Box CD set.

    Anyone know if John Lassister knows that this website exists? CMs?

    I think Randy felt comfortable in the Magic Music forms, especially since his "fame" was mostly relegated to die hard Disneyland fans. John Lasseter, on the other hand, is a much more high profiled, conspicious person. If he were on the boards, it would either be as a lurker or in disguise. Could you imagine the amount of PMs John would get if it were known he frequented these boards? Insane

    Re: Hello Mr. Lassiter!!!

    If you sneak on pirates whos going to opperate the ride? I am pretty sure they opperate the ride? How are the AA's going to be turned on. Who will control the flow of the boats. Overall. That was byfar the dummest thing i've ever heard lol. If your kid loves pirates then take her to the new Pirates Dinner Adventure in buena park. I was at that show and it really is amazing. They let children be in the performance at the beginning its action packed if you love pirates this is the show you go to. It is basicly Medevil Times on Steriods. GO TO IT!!!!

    If you wanted to just ruin it for your son for the rest of forever, don't take him to New Orleans Square at all, drag him over to Fantasyland, and try to convince him that It's A Small World is the new and improved (and moved) Pirates of the Caribbean. It could work....

    Re: Hello Mr. Lassiter!!!

    Life is full of disappointment.

    Your kid can't ride POC.

    I can't date Salma Hayek.

    Boo hoo for both of us.

    Seriously though, this is a good life lesson that sometimes even with the best of planning, things happen. I have a pretty good feeling that he will live through this. Just tell him that the reason it is closed is because he didn't keep his room clean enough.

    Re: Hello Mr. Lassiter!!!

    This is why (IMO) you shouldn't let your child have any expectations when going somewhere at a theme/amusement park. Like when a child gets measured for a ride only to find out that they're too small to ride. So they know that they're missing out on something. My mother was smart...she always pre-measured me at home, and if I wasn't tall enough, she wouldn't bring me remotely close to a ride I might have wanted to venture on. But anyhow, I'm sure you did the best you could, and of course you'd want to get your child excited for the visit (and he might have known about the attraction from before).

    Well, try contacting some high-end executives, and you might be accomodated, if they feel generous...but I wouldn't count on it. I'd say don't bother with e-mailing Disneyland, they're not going to be nice unless they did something wrong towards you.

    Maybe begging some CMs at the entrance or exit of the attraction might help. Have your child do a puppy face or something. hehe

    Re: Hello Mr. Lassiter!!!

    the last I heard they were going to be lucky to get everything done by the 26th. I hate to say this but you aren't the only person in that boat. I know the WDW pirates is supposed to be done before the 7th because that is when the movie opens. IF the powers that be decided that they wanted the cast to ride the new ride first then so be it. there is still plenty for your family to do while you are there. and who knows? you may get lucky and they do a soft opening but I doubt it.
