Over at the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, John Stamos cavorted with swashbucklers. Disney CEO Michael Eisner hinted that the Pirates ride would soon feature an animatronic character with the face of Johnny Depp, who plays Jack Sparrow in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

An obsessive Disneyphile, Stamos paid $30,000 for the original Disneyland sign for his now ex-wife, Rebecca Romijn, after the two spent their first date at the park. Since their split, Romijn has been keeping the sign in storage until Stamos finds a new yard large enough to display it.
