I was also in the park on the 26th and 27th, and I agree about POTC. The only problem I had with it was a few too many repetitions of "Dead Men Tell No Tales." And maybe a little less Johnny Depp, but he's not too, too overwhelming. (I should say that I'm a great fan of the old POTC, so I may be too curmudgeonly here!)
I also ate at Cafe Orleans, and I'm sorry to say that my experience doesn't match yours. The service wasn't very good, and the Monte Cristo sandwiches weren't as I remember them. Still good, but heavy and greasy compared to earlier times.
Not that I'd give a final judgement of any restaurant on the basis of one experience -- I may have gotten the wrong waitress AND the wrong cook that time.
