Pirates of the Caribbean

So, Jackie and I went to Disneyland last night to ride the newly updated Pirates ride, but found that the ride was closed still to the general public. Which is okay, I guess because the entrance was being blocked by some huge set of stadium seating. We walked around the bay to get a better look and I snapped four pictures for this panoramic shot. The screen was twice the size of a normal movie theater and sitting on the tip of Tom Sawyer's Island. The seats surrounded the bay on the opposite side of the water. (If you click on the picture you'll get a much larger view.)

We can't see the movie here; you have to be invited by the movie production, since this is not a Disney event, they're only hosting the event. So I need to become quick friends with Jerry Bruckheimer (the producer) before Saturday.

I hadn't been to Disneyland since February when we let Erin's pass expire. The crowds are far too big with this whole 50th Anniversary celebration.

It would be so cool to see the movie at Disneyland. I wonder if cast members will be there and get to watch it on the sly?
