The end of the Pirates of the Carribbean kind of parallels Splash Mountain now. You have the main character imperiled throughout the ride, only to have him relaxed and indulging in his victory. Also, both are singing the main theme song to the ride and are stretched out in relaxed positions. I don't know, I guess that's the first thing I thought of when I saw Jack Sparrow and now I can't seem to get the Brer Rabbit connection out of my head. It's interesting that both rides are also flumes with drops. There's nothing special about it or anything, it's just kind of interesting how much the new ride's Jack Sparrow parallel's Brer Rabbit. Tony Baxter's storyline touches maybe?
