    Cptn Jack Sparrow Character Meal?

    I just read on a Disney blog about a Jack Sparrow character meal survey at WDW. Supposedly Discovery Island would be converted to a Pirate's Cove where guests would dine on the beach with Jack and other pirates. Has anyone else heard about this? It sounds really cool, and if Disney is truly considering this, it would be great.

    I think it would be a neat concept. Especially if they really added some neat pirate stuff to the island.

    Well it used to be Treasure Island before it was Discovery Island. It still has the wreck of the Hispanola on the beach or at least last time I was there it did. From Bay lake the island looks a bit overgrown and the dock structure would have to be repaired it was in sad shape last I looked but the paths and all where still more or less intact and the style of the rope bridges and existing themeing would lend well to that use.

    I only question is one restarant is enough to get folks to the island? I think they will need something more to have enough of a draw to keep it open. Last rumor I heard they where looking at making it into a small honeymoon resort of some sort which would not be compatible with a pirates restaurant if you want to have privacy...

    I'm not sure that they are thinking of a restaraunt. More like a dinner show. I'm guessing like the Poly Luau or the Hoop-De-Doo. Those shows are well known enough to make guests journey to the Poly & Fort Wilderness resorts.

    Plus don't count out the marketing Disney can put behind this. Pirates are hot right now and a good marketing campaign could make even the seasickiest of land lubbers wanna swab the decks for Jack Sparrow. (sorry, that's CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow)

    I am optimistic to hear that Disney wants to open up Treasure/Discovery island again. It's a great little piece of real estate that has been neglected for years. A veritable diamond in the rough. Whether Disney uses it for a Pirates themed dinner event or a hidden honeymoon bungelow, I am just glad to hear that they are again considering using the isle!

    This might have something to do with the princess and pirate parties they have coming up in January? It might just be a temporary thing for that. I could see it being done as a dinner show on the beach for this but maybe not as a permanent thing.

    i can't wait for them to have the buried Rum cellar from the movie. If guests can set their own fires thast would be great.

    And how many hundreds of dollars is this going to cost?
