I love that piece! The Pirates series just keeps getting better!

I envy those of you that will be able to be there! I'll look forward to your news!

OK, I'm determined not to do this series because I just don't do the Park pieces but they're making it very hard for me to resist! This has always been one of my favorite scenes from the ride. Ruben has been doing some great work for the line.

Agree. This series just continues to get better and better.

This too has always been a favorite moment of the ride and probably my favorite of the Pirates of the Caribbean Series.

Ruben is such a great asset to the line. Glad to have him aboard and looking forward to future releases from him!
