This Disney gem is located in Pirates of the Caribbean. "But Tim, you've already done a segment on this!" True, I have, and that was on Marc Davis and his Red Headed beauty that's on the wall in the caves. This gem that I'm writing about this time is also located in the caves, only about 50 feet away from the painting, but over on the left side of the boat. To be more precise, it's on the head board right behind the pirate sitting on the bed with the magnification glass in his hand.

When you notice the skull, you'll find that it's bigger than all of the others in the ride...because it's real. That's just another thing you don't see at other parks. You don't see Gems like that at Six Flags, or Universal. It's just another reason why Walt's vision has lasted so long. He and his team of Imagineers believed in something that was just as great as all of their imaginations put together. Pretty awesome, huh? Pirates has two Gems inside of it, almost right next to each other. Next time you're on the ride, make sure you find the Gems I've mentioned. Its fun to see things other people just don't notice.
