Disneyland Resort at Dawn: Pirate’s Lair

posted on May 31st, 2011 by Shannon Swanson, Public Relations Manager, Disneyland Resort

Last week, Paul Hiffmeyer shed some light on a possible “duckspiracy” at Disneyland park. I recently experienced some evidence of this phenomenon myself.

I set sail early one morning to see what I could find over at Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island in Disneyland park. The island was a bit too serene without any buccaneers running about. Then I spotted some irresistible stowaways. Although some of these feathered friends were just getting their sea legs, they seemed quite comfortable in front of the camera.

See the posts below for more unique looks at the Disneyland Resort:

Hey I know that Disneyland keeps and care for cats within the parks but what is Disney doing for all the ducks?

PS. Keep doing these early morning videos!

Great video!

I love how the Plains Indian village can be heard in the background of some of those shots.

If I were a duck I would want to live at Disneyland. The perfect place for ducks and humans.

I was just there this weekend. We have pictures of the baby geese. They seemed to pose for the camera and couldn’t resist snapping a few photos

“Disneyland at Dawn” is my favorite series on the blog! My paradise would be being inside “Disneyland at Dawn”. :)

My hubby and I were just there over the weekend. We sat and fed the ducks for an hour by It a Small World. One of the ducklings even hopped up on my foot. What a precious memory!

I love the Ducks! Last May while at Disneyland my Granchildren & I seen the Momma & 5 Duckling being escorted by 5 Disney cast members as they waddled from The Story Book ride to the water across from te Matterhorn where the boat rides used to be! We loved it!

How Walt Disney must have loved walking through his park in the mornings. The water features are so calming. Thank you for posting this! It was just what I needed after a rough day.

I so want to be a duck or a goose and live in Disneyland forever! Thanks for sharing this, it is wonderful and makes me want to book my next trip.

I’m thinking a Disney Parks Blog event where fans get to come early and just walk around…yes yes?

And wait a second…there’s a TRUCK driving through New Orleans Square! Haha. There’s a site you don’t see….ever :)

I was just a Disneyland last wed. and my husband and I were watching the ferry go back and forth from tom sawyer island when another guest chatted us up, he said he was visiting from hawaii and was nearly brought to tears because he missed seeing ducks and knew he could find them on the mainland @ disneyland.
