A Pirate's Secret

Yo-ho Yo-ho, a Pirate's Life for Me.  One of my favorite attractions at Disney World, Pirates of the Caribbean.  Do you know that the 52 feet long, 14 foot waterfall drop you experience during the ride serves a purpose?  Not just to add to the suspense and mystery, the waterfall allows the boats to pass under the railroad tracks that surround the Magic Kingdom.  A large portion of the Pirates attraction is in a show building on the "outside" of the Magic Kingdom.  Guests pass again under the railroad tracks upon exiting the ride as they ride the escalator up.

Notice the boot and peg leg prints on the escalator?
