Every Wednesday we test your DLR knowledge with a photograph taken somewhere in the Disneyland Resort. Usually I wait a day and give you the answer on Thursday, but seeing as this Thursday is Thanksgiving and I’ll be up early in the morning, then driving to Las Vegas to my in-laws, then cooking the dinner, then eating it and then passing out full of Turkey and other foodie goodness, I’ll just give you the answer now. Here’s tis:
The Sailing ship Columbia is taken out of service because Captain Hook and his pirates commandeer it to perform in Fantasmic!. It’s pretty cool.
First they make sure everyone who sat in front of The Rivers of America are still awake by firing a concussive blast from a cannon (which always gives me a start, even when I know it’s coming).
Hook, Smee, Peter Pan, Wendy, and pirates are running around the deck in this little fight/stunt sequence as the ship makes its pass.
Following the ship is that crocodile the wants to finish off what he started with Capt. Hook’s hand, with the sound of a ticking clock emanating from its tail.
The Steam Ship Mark Twain is also pulled to the sideline to perform in the Fantasmic! finale, piloted by a black and white Mickey Mouse, dressed in attire from Steamboat Willie.
About 50 Disney characters dance on the ship in a ribbon routine. The sequence is accompanied by searchlights, fountains, and pyrotechnics. Pretty awesome stuff.
We had more guesses than usual this time, and everyone was right! Lol!

We’ll have a new one for you next week, so when you’re in the Disneyland Resort (Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Downtown Disney and all of the Disney hotels), keep your eyes peeled and take in everything.
