Speaking of the Davy Jones effect, they need to fix the mist screen so it goes all the way to the water. I went on POTC last night and the screen only went half way to where its suppose to go, the kids in our boat almost had to stand in the boat just to feel the mist with their hand!
I noticed this on my last trip. Disappointing.
Next DL trip: August 2011
"What do you mean we can't get rid of those weeds in time? Then go over there and put some fancy signs with Latin names in front of them."
I seem to remember reading somewhere regarding the addition of the Davy Jones effect that the imagineers had wanted to make it more realistic with not only mist going all the way down but by adding bubblers below where the "waterfall" would hit the water's surface to make it look like the falling water was disrupting the surface. I believe it was tabled due to time limitations and the fact that they had a hard time making it work. Possibly in one of the next updates they'll finally perfect it.
I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.
By the way my shirt in the pic says "I like big sharks and I cannot lie"
What they need to add to the waterfall effect is some "splashing" animation. There are mist screens out there with technology that will let you actually interact with the screen. I saw one where you can "draw" with your finger, creating a trail of colorful fireworks wherever the mist screen is interrupted. Why not replace the fireworks with water splashes on the ride, so that it looks like the boat ahead of you is getting splashed?
